It is especially useful for fat that has been resistant to healthy diet and exercise. Patient results after Coolsculpting® are proven. You and others will notice! Even better – the results are permanent if you maintain your weight and lifestyle habits.
How do we freeze away fat? It comes down to science. It was discovered that fat cells (adipocytes) freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues such as nerves, muscle, skin and vascular structures. Coolsculpting® safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells under the skin. The treated fat cells are frozen, become crystallized and die. Over time, your body naturally metabolizes and processes the destructed fat cells and eliminates them. This process reveals a more sculpted figure in as early as 3 weeks. However, most dramatic results are appreciable between 1 and 3 months after treatment.
Together Coolsculpting® and Cosmetic Laser CentersSM can reshape your body! When you come for your consultation, your Coolsculpting® provider will assess your problem areas. We will develop a customized treatment plan for you. Our provider will tailor the plan to your body, goals, and budget. This is known in the Coolsculpting® world as “Treat to Transformation™”. Additional sessions will likely enhance your results. Patients should anticipate two treatment sessions minimally.
The Coolsculpting® treatment is easy on the patient. Patients get to sit back, relax and kiss stubborn fat goodbye simultaneously. Once the treatment area is identified and properly marked, the applicator is positioned over the area. Next, the vacuum is engaged on the applicator and the treatment area is suctioned into the applicator’s contour. Once the applicator is attached and patient comfort is affirmed, the controlled cooling is initiated. Once the treatment starts, cycles can range from 35-75 minutes each. During these cycles patients are free to watch TV, read or nap.
CoolSculpting® is completely non-surgical and non-invasive. Treated patients can typically return to their normal activities, including work, immediately after. In as early as 3 weeks following each session, the treated fat cells are gone for good. This will reveal a more sculpted you. The most dramatic results from Coolsculpting® are noticeable between the 1 and 3 month mark.
