coolsculpting procedure

Even though a full 86% of women find that wearing makeup improves their self-image, did you know that there are other cosmetic treatments available that will make you feel more confident? One of these is coolsculpting, which helps to reduce fat in targeted areas of your body. Here is an intro guide to the coolsculpting procedure.

What is coolsculpting?
This is a fat-freezing procedure that has been approved by the FDA for fat reduction. The goal is to remove stubborn areas of fat and cellulite, particularly on a person’s stomach, hips, thighs, and arms. Coolsculpting is noninvasive, it does not require anesthesia and/or needles, and there is no need for downtime. In fact, this procedure is so popular that are over 4 million treatments performed annually.

What should I expect with this procedure?
You can get started simply by calling our office to schedule a consultation. You and one of our doctors will take a look at your body and determine what areas you would like to focus the coolsculpting on — keep in mind your coolsculpting procedure is completely customized to meet your needs, so you can truly eliminate unwanted fat where it really bothers you. Depending on the results you’d like, you may need to have more than one treatment. For example, you could work on your thighs one day and eliminate your muffin top in the next treatment.

How does this treatment work?
The idea behind coolsculpting is simple. A coolsculpting machine will deliver a blast of cold to your fat cells, which will then shrink, be crystallized, and die. Over time, your body will naturally process and eliminate these frozen fat cells, which means you will have permanent coolsculpting results. The machine we use is targeted specifically for areas you don’t like, meaning there will not be any change in fat cell distribution in untreated areas.

What is not included in this treatment?
It is important to know that a coolsculpting procedure is not a skin care product, does not remove sagging skin, and is not a medical skin care product. It instead is targeted to be used on your fat cells and will result in a more toned appearance.
