CoolSculpting ® is an FDA approved breakthrough, non-invasive technology that freezes away stubborn fat. CoolSculpting ® gently targets and cools unwanted fat cells in the selected area to induce a noticeable, natural-looking reduction in fat bulges. Each CoolSculpting ® procedure results in an average 20% reduction of fat in the treated area.
Unlike most other methods of fat reduction, CoolSculpting ® involves no needles, surgery, or downtime. Patients often spend the one to two hours of procedure time reading, working on their laptops, or simply relaxing.
Results can be seen in as soon as three weeks following treatment, with the best results occurring over the next two to four months.
CoolSculpting ® can reduce the fat layer by 20%. If the patient’s treatment plan calls for a second procedure, an additional 20% reduction can be experienced. Final losses may be more or less, depending on the patient.
As the panels go to work in the first few minutes, the patient feels a sensation of intense cold. This soon dissipates. The patient is seated comfortably or lying down during the treatment.
Yes. The CoolSculpting® procedure is completely non-invasive, so the patient can return to normal activities immediately. Patients may experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, or numbness in the treated area, but this is temporary.
Patients may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after their treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. But their body will still be flushing fat cells at that time, and will continue doing so for up to four months.
During the CoolSculpting® procedure, the treated fat cells are eliminated. As long as the patient maintains his or her weight with their normal diet and exercise, long-term results should remain stable.
