What is Coolsculpting ®?
CoolSculpting ® is a FDA-cleared alternative to liposuction that uses Cryolipolysis™ fat-freezing technology to safely and effectively kill unwanted fat cells by 20% or more in one session. No anesthetic is needed, and no incisions need to be made. You will experience little to no downtime as a result of the treatment and will be able to return to your regular routine right after treatment. With targeted cooling, your fat is safely chilled to damage the fat cells without harming surrounding skin or tissue. During the weeks following your procedure, your body will naturally eliminate the damaged fat cells, leaving you looking slimmer. For optimal results, repeated treatments may be necessary for some areas of the body.
How Coolsculpting ® Works
When you come in for your CoolSculpting® treatment, we will place a protective gel over the treatment area. Once you are comfortable, the CoolSculpting® device will use a combination of gentle vacuum pressure and deep cooling to treat the fat below the skin and freeze unwanted fat cells.
Patients can usually sit comfortably while the device works, often reading a book, watching a movie or surfing the Web. As a result of the cooling, you may feel some numbness during treatment, and the treatment area may be red afterward, but this usually fades within a few hours. Most treatments take about one hour per treatment area.
