Fat deposits can be difficult to pinpoint with even the most rigorous diet and exercise regimen. Surgery can produce positive results, but not all patients want to undergo an invasive procedure. Many men and women who have at least a pinchable amount of unwanted body fat are choosing non-surgical fat reduction with CoolSculpting®. CoolSculpting® is FDA-approved for various areas of the body that accumulate stubborn fat that often resists at-home efforts.
What Is CoolSculpting®?
Unlike surgical fat removal techniques, this revolutionary treatment freezes targeted fat cells while leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed. The frozen fat is gradually processed and eliminated as waste over time. CoolSculpting® is an innovative, safe, and effective fat reduction method that can take as little as 35 minutes per designated area.
The Medical Skin Clinic is excited to offer DualSculpting, which involves the use of two CoolSculpting® devices. With this approach, patients can address multiple regions of concern simultaneously, resulting in shorter sessions.
Am I a Candidate for CoolSculpting®?
If you are in relatively good shape but still struggle with pockets of excess fat, CoolSculpting® may be the right option for you. Areas that CoolSculpting® can improve include the abdomen, inner and outer thighs, hips, back, upper arms, and chin.
Will CoolSculpting® Help Me Lose Weight?
No, this treatment is not a weight-loss option. CoolSculpting® is only effective in pinpointing specific pockets of subcutaneous fat to refine a patient’s contours. It does not address fat deposits deep within the body. Those with loose skin may benefit from a SkinTyte™ treatment in the months after their CoolSculpting® procedure to achieve optimal results.
The CoolSculpting® Procedure
The treatment area is first prepared with specially designed gel pads that protect the skin from the freezing temperatures used during the session. Two CoolSculpting® panels press the pinchable fat, and suction holds it in place while the device delivers controlled cooling. Patients may utilize this time to read, take a nap, or enjoy an activity on their mobile phone.
Recovery and Results
Since CoolSculpting® is not a surgical treatment, there is no lengthy recovery or downtime needed afterward. Some minor swelling and bruising may develop, but these side effects resolve within a few days. You will be able to return to all of your daily activities and normal schedule immediately. This fast and painless procedure is incredibly convenient for busy professionals and patients who are hesitant to undergo surgery to obtain the physique they desire.
It takes several weeks to notice the results of a CoolSculpting® treatment, as the body needs to metabolize the destroyed fat cells and reveal the contours underneath. The final outcome is visible in two to six months.
