At-home fitness techniques can be labor-intensive and yield subpar effects for individuals with stubborn, localized fat. Many people who are dedicated to a strict diet and exercise routine struggle to pinpoint problem spots to achieve the fit and slim physique they desire. The good news is that now there is a cutting-edge option that helps patients customize their curves and freeze away fat cells. CoolSculpting® is ideal for patients with pockets of unwanted fat in the abdomen, thighs, upper arms, back, and other FDA-cleared treatment zones.

Why CoolSculpting®?

Contrary to other non-invasive devices on the market, CoolSculpting® comes with many significant benefits that make it the superior choice for body contouring. Some of the most advantageous properties of this treatment include:

  • Non-surgical fat reduction
  • A quick and comfortable procedure
  • Multiple target areas
  • FDA-cleared
  • No downtime following the appointment
  • No need for general anesthesia

How CoolSculpting® Works

fat cells close up

CoolSculpting® reduces unwanted subcutaneous fat through a revolutionary process called cryolipolysis. This non-invasive freezing method crystallizes fat cells in specific areas of concern using controlled cooling technology. The surrounding tissue remains fully intact and unharmed, which is why there is little-to-no discomfort or required recovery. The body eliminates the frozen cells as waste for up to six months, but an improvement is visible within a few weeks of the procedure.

Does the Treated Fat Come Back?

The fat cells that are targeted during a CoolSculpting® session do not return because they are permanently destroyed. However, making unhealthy choices following the treatment can lead to an accumulation of new fat cells. CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss option, and it should not be viewed as an alternative to a healthy, active lifestyle. It is intended to define the contours by reducing specific deposits of fat.

Is CoolSculpting® for Me?

The best candidates for CoolSculpting® are at or near their goal weight and are struggling to shed stubborn pockets of body fat. Those who wish to address skin laxity as well may consider follow-up treatment with SkinTyte™ to obtain optimal results and well-defined contours. If you want to find out if you are a candidate for CoolSculpting®, it is essential to schedule a consultation with a specialist who is experienced in performing this treatment. During that first appointment, you can discuss your concerns and objectives to get treatment tailored to your unique needs.
