CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive procedure designed to gently and effectively reduce stubborn fat in targeted areas of the body. CoolSculpting® uses a breakthrough freezing technique that destroys unwanted fat cells in your body without surgery, anesthesia, or downtime. During the procedure, a non-invasive applicator is applied to the surface of the skin to deliver precisely controlled cooling, which targets and eliminates fat cells. As the fat cells are exposed to cooling, a process of natural cell removal occurs. The fat cells in the treated area are gradually eliminated through the body’s normal metabolic processes, similar to how fat from food is eliminated. The result is a reduction in fat bulges that is visible in most patients as early as three weeks to three months after treatment.
The procedure has FDA clearance for the non-surgical reduction of fat in the following areas:
CoolSculpting® has been clinically shown to reduce fat in the treated area. The CoolSculpting® procedure can reduce the fat layer by an average of 20 - 25% with a single treatment. After the initial treatment is complete, further reductions can be obtained with additional treatment if desired. Individual reductions may be more or less, depending on the case. During your consultation, a personalized treatment plan will be developed to optimize your results. This comprehensive plan may involve multiple treatments, depending on the specific areas of concern.
The device is positioned on the body, which then draws the bulge into the cooling cup. As the cup goes to work, the patient initially feels a sensation of intense cold which soon dissipates. The patient is either seated comfortably or lying down during the duration of the procedure. The average treatment is 35 minutes.
Since CoolSculpting® is completely non-invasive, patients can resume their routine activities, including returning to work and exercise regimens, immediately. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, swelling, or numbness in the treated area, but this is temporary.
Results are not immediate. Some patients see results as early as three weeks. Most dramatic results are usually seen one to three months after treatment. It often takes a few treatments to get to your optimum results. The more treatments you receive, the greater the results.
CoolSculpting® is ideal for men or women with pinch-able fat and have a healthy diet and lifestyle. It is ideal for those people who have a noticeable bulge or bump that has not responded to healthy diet and exercise, but do not need or want to undergo liposuction surgery.
The price of CoolSculpting® depends on the applicators used and the total number of sessions required to achieve the desired result. Since each patient has different needs and goals, the total cost of CoolSulpting can differ significantly from individual to individual.
