What is CoolSculpting exactly?
CoolSculpting is a safe and effective procedure to eliminate stubborn fat without surgery or downtime. In fact, CoolSculpting is the only FDA-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate diet- and exercise-resistant fat. CoolSculpting results are proven, noticeable, and lasting, so you’ll look and feel great from every angle.
It really just comes down to science. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues, so CoolSculpting technology is designed to safely deliver precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you. Because there are many variables that determine the best way to reach your personal goals, additional sessions may further enhance your results. We will develop a customized CoolSculpting treatment plan that addresses your problem areas and is tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget!
It’s easy to sit back, relax and say goodbye to stubborn fat. After we select the area(s) to be treated, the device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied. During your procedure, you may choose to read, check email, or even take a nap. The CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is completely non-surgical, so you can typically return to work and normal activities immediately. Then, in the weeks and months following your procedure, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.
The sooner you set up your consultation, the sooner you could start to see results in the mirror—long-term results in areas that have resisted all of your diet and exercise efforts. Contact us today to find out if the CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is right for you.
