CoolSculpting is an aesthetic procedure that eliminates unwanted fat by freezing the fat cells in target areas. CoolSculpting isn’t a substitute for a healthy weight loss; it’s a way of contouring your body when you have stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
CoolSculpting doesn’t involve any invasive surgical procedures, so it’s safer than surgery like liposuction, and you won’t need to take time out of your busy schedule to recuperate after your treatment. Results are long-lasting, as the fat cells frozen by the CoolSculpting process can’t regenerate.
CoolSculpting works by cooling fat cells in the target area so that they crystallize and die. Fat cells freeze at a different temperature to other tissues, so by using precisely the right temperature to target fat cells, CoolSculpting kills fat cells in the target area without causing any damage to the surrounding tissues.
Once the fat cells are dead, your body processes them over time until they’re completely gone. This can take several months, but once the process is complete, you’ll see the final results of your CoolSculpting treatment. Once they’re dead, fat cells can’t grow back, so providing you maintain your weight at a healthy level, the results are permanent.
CoolSculpting is suitable for use on areas of stubborn fat that remain even after following a weight loss plan. These areas of stubborn fat are a common problem for many people, typically affecting areas such as the:
CoolSculpting treatment can target any or all of these areas to give you the body shape you desire. Dr. Rich creates an individualized treatment plan for every patient, tailoring it to your wishes to ensure you get the best possible results, and discussing how many treatments you’re likely to need.
CoolSculpting is noninvasive, so there’s no cutting, injections, anesthetics, or pain. When the vacuum applicator is in use, it draws the target tissue upwards, so you may feel a pulling or pinching sensation. During the cooling process, you may feel the cold at first, but the area quickly becomes numb.
Once the treatment session is over, you should be able to carry on with your day as you usually would.
