Do you have unwanted fat? You are not alone! Many people are now turning to cutting-edge methods like Coolsculpting®, an FDA-approved, non-surgical procedure that can safely and effectively reduce stubborn fat. CoolsculptingR can be performed on multiple areas including abdomen, inner and outer thighs, hips, back, upper arms and chin.
What Is CoolSculpting®?
Coolsculpting® is a safe and effective treatment that reduces body fat. Coolsculpting® can take as little are 35 minutes per treatment area. At The Medical Skin clinic we offer Dualsculpting, where multiple areas can be treated simultaneously resulting in shorter treatment times.
Coolsculpting® targets the body’s fat cells, while leaving other cells and tissues unharmed. Because of this, the procedure is known as a selective treatment.
What Happens During the CoolSculpting® Procedure?
The procedure starts with warming gel pads being placed onto the skin to protect the area from freezing temperatures. The treatment area is then placed between two CoolSculpting® panels and medical suction is used to keep the area in place.
Cooling energy is directed at the treatment area, causing the temperature of the unwanted fat cells to lower. During this time, the patient can sleep, read, or even use their mobile phone.
After the CoolSculpting® Procedure
Since CoolSculpting® is not a surgical treatment, there is no lengthy recovery or downtime needed afterwards. You’ll be able to return to your daily activities and normal schedule immediately. Because the procedure is so fast and painless, it’s incredibly convenient and works well for busy professionals.
After a CoolSculpting® treatment, patients will see a visible reduction in the size of treated areas. The results will take a few weeks to appear, and the full benefits will be apparent in two to six months. The dead fat cells that were previously frozen will gradually be safely filtered out of the body during this time.
The procedure is so gentle and low risk that patients find the only side effects are mild swelling and bruising, which disappear within a few days.
Is CoolSculpting® the Answer for Obesity?
No, this treatment isn’t meant as a weight-loss option for people who are extremely overweight. CoolSculpting® is only effective in targeting specific trouble areas of fat. This procedure treats the outer layer of fat, also known as subcutaneous fat, rather than deeper deposits within the body. In addition, those with loose skin or cellulite will not benefit from this procedure. The Medical Skin Clinic does offer treatments to address those concerns.
If you are in relatively good shape but still struggle with pockets of excess fat, this procedure may be right for you.
