During the consultation, we will show you how the CoolSculpting® process works and what you can expect from your treatment.
How Does The CoolSculpting Procedure Work?
CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical body contouring treatment that uses a controlled cooling device to freeze and destroy fat cells that are resistant to diet and exercise. These stubborn fatty areas are gently pulled between the applicator’s two cooling panels and held there while the plates drop in temperatures close to freezing, causing the fat cells to harden and crystallize. The process typically takes between 35 minutes and 1 hour 15 minutes but the time does vary depending on which areas are being treated and how many cycles you are receiving on the day of treatment.
After the device has been removed, patients will receive a two-minute massage of the targeted area since the crystallized fat has sharp edges that will damage additional fat cells, maximizing results.
The fat freezing sessions are performed in “cycles”. With our multiple applicators we can treat up to 3 areas at once. CoolSculpting is a highly customized treatment and the number of cycles each patient needs will be determined by our specialists during your private consultation.
Which Body Areas Can It Treat Under FDA Clearance?
CoolSculpting® was originally cleared by the FDA in September of 2010 for the flank area, otherwise known as love handles. It is now FDA cleared for fat layer reduction in the abdomen, inner thighs, outer thighs, arms, bra fat and banana rolls. CoolSculpting® Chin is also FDA cleared to help reduce fat in the submental area (double chin).
The primary benefit of CoolSculpting® is that it’s a non-invasive fat reduction treatment. Unlike liposuction, CoolSculpting® doesn’t require any needles, surgery or prolonged downtime. In fact, patients can return to their normal daily activities after treatment, including exercise.
In addition to being non-invasive, it’s also a relatively quick treatment and typically takes only one or two hours (depending on the number of cycles) , after which patients can return to their normal routine. While some patients report mild discomfort, the treatment is typically pain free and many read, work or watch TV during their session.
