Get shape without surgery!
Do you have difficult areas of stubborn fat that have evaded all efforts of fad diets and gym classes? Looking to avoid going under the knife? CoolSculpting is a fat-freezing procedure which helps eliminate that stubborn fat that resists all other means of reduction. It is the only FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment which uses controlled cooling to break up problem fatty areas. Proven, safe, and reliable, this new treatment method is changing the way we look at contouring the body.
How Does It Work?
CoolSculpting is founded upon the process of cryolipolysis. This refers to the breaking down body fat cells by using freezing temperature in concentrated areas. Cold does not damage other cells in the manner that it effects fat cells, therefore there is no damage to the skin or underlying tissues. In the weeks following, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates the dead cells.
In a strange twist of science, cryolipolysis was unintentionally discovered by Harvard researchers who observed a group of children that developed dimples in their cheeks upon eating popsicles. The scientists realized that the popsicles were freezing and eliminating small pockets of fat cells. And with that, the concept of using extreme cold to target and kill fatty tissue, while leaving the healthy tissue unharmed, was born.
What Should You Expect?
At your consultation, a member of our highly trained staff will review the process as well as create a treatment plan customized for your body. During the procedure, a gel pad and applicator will be placed on the target area. While the vacuum applicator brings the tissue up to the designated area, the CoolSculpting applicator delivers the controlled cooling temperatures which freeze the targeted fat. As the name suggests, the treatment itself can be a bit chilly. You may feel an intense cold in the beginning, but this feeling normally subsides within 5-10 minutes as the area numbs. Most procedures take less than an hour, with no recovery time. This means you can get right back to every day life!
*In some cases, multiple treatments may be required. This is dependent on the desired outcome and the size of the treatment area*
Are There Any Side Effects?
As cryolipolysis is a noninvasive treatment, there are a very low number of complications or side effects. During the actual procedure, you may experience mild sensations of tugging, pulling, aching, or cramping at the site of the applicator. These will subside as soon as the area has numbed. Side effects that have been reported include swelling, bruising, sensitivity, skin redness, mild pain, and itching at the application site. These effects are temporary and normally reduce after a few days.
