Do you exercise regularly and eat a healthy and balanced diet, but still seem to have stubborn areas of fat that just won’t seem to budge? If so, CoolSculpting® can help you achieve your fitness goals. This non-invasive treatment uses cooling technology to eliminate stubborn fat cells for good, so you can enjoy a slimmer, more confident you!
What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is the only treatment that is FDA-cleared to eliminate stubborn areas of fat in 9 different areas of the body. It uses cryolipolysis, which freezes stubborn fat cells. Once the cells are frozen, they die and are naturally eliminated for your body for good!
CoolSculpting® treatment areas include:
- Bra fat.
- Back fat.
- Underneath buttocks.
- Upper arms.
Who is a Candidate for CoolSculpting®?
Healthy adults who are looking to target specific areas of stubborn fat can often benefit from CoolSculpting® treatments. Those with cryoglobulinemia, cold agglutinin disease, or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria should not undergo this treatment. The best way to determine if this procedure is right for you is through a consultation with one of our medical professionals.
It is important to understand that CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss treatment. Because of this, it is possible to gain weight following treatment if you do not continue with health habits, though weight gain will most likely occur throughout the body and not just in the treated areas.
The CoolSculpting® Treatment
During your CoolSculpting® treatment, a clear gel pad will first be placed on the treatment area to create a barrier between the cooling applicator and your skin. The applicator will then be placed and the treatment started. You may experience sensations of tugging, pulling, mild pinching, tingling, or intense cold. Once the area becomes numb, these sensations will subside. During your treatment session you are free to read, chat on the phone, work on your laptop, or even nap! Once the allotted time is up, the applicator will be detached, and the treated areas of tissue will be massaged to break up the fat cells.
Because each CoolSculpting® treatment is different depending on the individual and the number of treatment areas, overall treatment time may vary.
Following CoolSculpting®, you may experience temporary swelling, redness, bruising, tingling, or itching at the treatment sites. However, there is no downtime required, so you can return to your everyday activities right away. Visible changes in your body should be seen within 1-3 months of treatment, though final results may take 6 months or more. You will be able to enjoy a more sculpted figure, as well as better fitting clothes and an overall more confident you!
