CoolSculpting is a non-invasive body contouring system that utilizes Cryopolysis® technology to “freeze” fat cells. During your session, your practitioner guides a handheld instrument over the desired treatment area. While the process actually freezes fat cells, you won’t feel much cold.
Most of the process happens below the surface level of your skin, which guards it from the cold. The destroyed frozen fat cells passed through your body naturally over a period of several weeks. You’ll gradually start to notice a slimmer, more toned physique as your body loses as much as 20-25% fat in the targeted area.
CoolSculpting® is a nonsurgical, body contouring procedure which utilizes Cryopolysis® technology to freeze fat tissue, causing it to break down. Treatment programs run for several weeks and during this time the body naturally eliminates fat cells. Gradually, the results become more and more noticeable. Unlike liposuction, this procedure will not require any incisions, anesthesia, or extended downtime. Also, once these fat cells are eliminated, they will not come back.
Just about any area that’s full of stubborn fat -- or that makes you feel self-conscious -- can be treated with CoolSculpting. It can be used to sculpt:
Not at all. Many men and women come in for treatments on their lunch break or on their way home from work. Most sessions take between 35-60 minutes, depending on the area being treated. Also because it’s non-invasive and you won’t have any downtime, you can get treated without anyone knowing.
No. It’s all done in office, without the use of anesthesia. Some men and women report feeling a sudden stinging as soon as the burst of cold hits, but it quickly goes away. Plus it’s nothing compared to the pain and extensive downtime you’d experience with a liposuction procedure.
Possibly. It really depends on your needs, and your body’s own response to the CoolSculpting system. Before you get started with your treatment, your practitioner sits down with you to go over realistic expectations. They can let you know right from the start if you need more than one treatment and how many. If you do need more than one treatment, expect to wait about four weeks between sessions, just to allow the CoolSculpting process to take full effect.
Yes. CoolSculpting permanently destroys fat cells from your body. But it’s important to remember that poor diet and lack of exercise can make you gain new fat. Continue watching what you eat and toning your body at the gym, so you can enjoy your slimmed-down figure for years to come.
It is important to note that the procedure does not replace diet and exercise. Candidates must be in overall good health, 18 years of age or older, and already be within roughly 30 pounds of their ideal body weight. The CoolSculpting® device is used to target larger sections of the body including the abdomen, inner or outer thighs, or the flank area (love handles). A recently developed device, the CoolMini™, can eliminate fat beneath the chin, around the underarms, or near the knees. For those who suffer from cryoglobulinemia, paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria, or other medical conditions that cause the person to be susceptible to damage from low temperatures the procedure is not recommended. The doctor will assess the candidacy of each patient during a consultation.
During the procedure, a technician will place a gel pad on the skin over the target area. This pad assists to protect the skin from the cold temperatures produced by the CoolSculpting® device. The device itself is made up of two paddle-like applicators. Next, the device is applied to the protective pad. The device parts come in two types of applicators: the small, purple sculpting paddle and the large yellow debulking paddle. The purple applicators are used in small areas, and the yellow applicators are designed for larger areas. When initiated, patients might feel a burst of cold followed by mild discomfort. This will quickly subside. About an hour per site is needed for treatment; it will also depend on the size and number of treatment areas being addressed. Patients can typically focus on other activities throughout the procedure. Once the cooling is achieved, the regions of treatment will be massaged to restore regular blood flow.
CoolSculpting® is a revolutionary non-surgical contouring treatment that freezes stubborn fat, which then is naturally eliminated from your body. CoolSculpting’s unique technology uses controlled cooling to freeze and eliminate unwanted fat cells without surgery or downtime. The procedure is FDA-cleared, safe and effective. The results are lasting and undeniable.
There are no needles, no incisions, no need for anesthesia, and no recovery time. The CoolSculpting treatment is convenient for most patients, lasting 1-3 hours.
"What makes the CoolSculpting procedure different is that it uses advanced cooling technology (Cryolipolysis) to target fat bulges and eliminate fat cells through a gradual process (apoptosis and phagocytosis) that does not harm the surrounding tissues.
During their treatment, they can read, work on their laptop computer, listen to music or just relax. Most patients typically resume their routine activities, including returning to work and exercise regimens on the same day as the procedure.
