CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive body-slimming procedure that requires no needles, no incisions and no surgery. Using a controlled cooling method called Cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting® penetrates beneath your skin to chill and eliminate fat cells. If you find it difficult to eliminate fat from certain areas, whether it’s bulges, rolls, and other small areas of fat, you should consider CoolSculpting® by Zeltiq as a solution.
CoolSculpting® has the following benefits:
- Targets fat in specific areas
- No downtime
How does CoolSculpting® work?
This fat reduction technique works through a method called Cryolipolysis™ for the selective targeting and freezing of the fat cells in the treatment area. The CoolSculpting® procedure is performed in our office using a small cooling device that is placed on the area to be treated for approximately 1-2 hours. After feeling some tightening and pressure on the treatment area initially, the area then becomes numb and nearly unnoticeable to the patient. The CoolSculpting® system targets and freezes the fat cells in the area being treated, thereby, destroying the fat cells which are then absorbed and eliminated naturally through the body. There is no downtime and patients may return to their daily routine immediately, including work or their normal fitness routine.
Who is a good candidate for CoolSculpting®?
The ideal candidates for CoolSculpting® are men and women who are close to their ideal body weight with small areas of fat they wish to lose that are resistant to diet and exercise. These are typically individuals who are not surgical candidates or those who opt not to have cosmetic surgery procedures. Patients who are emotionally stable and fully understand what CoolSculpting® can and cannot accomplish will be the happiest with their results.
When can you expect to see the effects of CoolSculpting®?
Typically after just 3 weeks most patients begin to see results. After 2 – 4 months you will see the most dramatic improvement. Through your body’s natural metabolic processes, the fat cells in the treated areas are gradually eliminated.
