Are you in shape, but still have a few areas of stubborn fat? If you’re close to your ideal weight, but want to remove fat on the abdomen, back, flanks, “bra-bulge”, or love handles, CoolSculpting may be right for you.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is based on the research of two renowned Harvard University scientists, who observed that some children got dimples from eating popsicles. They found that controlled cooling (Cryolipolysis) can target and kill stubborn fat cells without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue. It’s an FDA-approved, non-surgical procedure that can reduce the fat layer by an average of 20%.
Is there any downtime?
The CoolSculpting procedure typically lasts 1 to 3 hours. Many patients relax during their treatment–reading, listening to music–even sleeping. In general, patients can resume their regular routine, returning to work or exercising the same day as the procedure.
What does CoolSculpting feel like?
Patients will feel a strong cold sensation that quickly disappears. I use a specially designed cooling applicator to freeze the fat cells. Over the next 2-4 months, your body naturally eliminates the cells, reducing the layer of fat.
Is CoolSculpting right for me?
The best candidates are at a healthy weight, but still have bulging in various areas that they’d like to reduce. They also many not have time for the recovery period liposuction requires.
