Coolsculpting is a cryolipolysis (fat-freezing), non-invasive body contouring treatment to permanently remove stubborn fat cell deposits. It is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists diet and exercise efforts. The results are clinically proven, noticeable, and lasting. The method involves controlled application of cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cell underneath the skin. Treated fat cell are crystalized (frozen) and then over time your body naturally processes and eliminates the dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
During your treatment, a gel or gel pad and applicator are applied to the targeted area. Applicators that use vacuum suction will draw the tissue into the applicator cup. Controlled cooling is then delivered to the treatment area for a duration of 35 to 75 minutes. Treatment times vary depending on the area of treatment and applicator used. You may feel pulling, tugging, or mild pinching, or intense cold. These sensations subside as the area becomes numb. Following the procedure, typically side effects include temporary redness, swelling, and tenderness.
The Coolsculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, which makes returning to normal activities afterwards a typically easy process. Often times, patients even return to work after their Coolsculpting treatment is over.
The number of treatments required will vary from patient to patient and your provider will personalize a treatment plan based on the area(s) and level of improvement you desire. Although one treatment is beneficial, two treatments are usually recommended at 4 to 6-week intervals. A consultation provides you the information on what treatment plan is best for you to achieve your desired results. Call to schedule. 425-337-5100
