Reduce Stubborn Fat, No Surgery Required
There are plenty of ways to lose weight and trim some inches off your waistline. But, depending on your body type, there may be some areas where the fat just refuses to disappear no matter how much weight you lose.
What Is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is a procedure that eliminates stubborn fat without surgery or other invasive methods. This highly-effective and scientifically-proven treatment uses the precise application of cold temperatures to reduce fat.
Using cryolipolysis (literally fat freezing), CoolSculpting® freezes and eliminates fat cells. Common treatment areas include:
- Under the chin
- Back & bra area
- Upper arm
How Does CoolSculpting® Work?
Fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than skin cells. CoolSculpting® applies this principle, using the exact temperature needed to freeze and kill fat cells without damaging your skin or surrounding tissues.
This treatment is applied with a special hand-held device. The device is placed on your skin and sucks the fatty portion into a small chamber, which cools the fat cells.
After your procedure, your body will slowly start to dispose of the dead fat cells. On average, the treatment area will decrease in size by about 20% over the next 4 to 6 months.
What to Expect from CoolSculpting®
The applicator will be placed on the treatment area. As it begins to work, you’ll feel a slight tugging and then a cooling sensation.
During the procedure, you may experience pulling, mild pinching, intense cold, tingling, stinging, aching, or cramping. These feelings will subside as the treatment area becomes numb. Once your CoolSculpting® technician completes the procedure, they will detach the applicator. Then, they will briefly massage the area to break up fat cells and enhance fat reduction.
Afterwards, you may notice redness, swelling, bruising, or soreness. All of these side effects are temporary.
How Do I Know If Coolsculpting® Is Right for Me?
It’s important to note that CoolSculpting® is not a weight-loss treatment. CoolSculpting® is designed to supplement a healthy diet and exercise. When diet and exercise alone aren’t enough to eliminate stubborn fat, then CoolSculpting® is an option.
