CoolSculpting is a unique cosmetic procedure that has gained popularity in recent years. Its appeal may be in the fact that the procedure is non-surgical and requires no downtime, but provides long-lasting noticeable results. It’s also been deemed by the FDA to be safe and effective. Let’s look at some more in-depth information about CoolSculpting.
CoolSculpting was developed at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, affiliated with Harvard Medical School. It is the only procedure of its kind. It uses a controlled cooling method to get rid of stubborn fat, rather than traditional surgical methods. Patients who have tried to lose weight through diet and exercise, but continue to deal with resistant fat despite their efforts, often look to CoolSculpting as a way to obtain the results they’ve been seeking. These results have shown to be proven, noticeable, and lasting.
CoolSculpting is a method that delivers cooling that is controlled and targeted to the fat cells beneath the skin. This gentle procedure freezes the fat cells, causing them to crystallize and die. The body then, over time, eliminates the dead cells through natural processing. The result is a more sculpted and toned look. The CoolSculpting procedure is a safe, FDA-cleared procedure that permanently freezes fat away and contours the body without the need for surgery or lengthy downtime.
For the procedure, the CoolSculpting device is positioned on the area or areas of the body that are to be treated. Controlled cooling is than applied. The procedure is non-restrictive; patients are awake and free to rest, read or check email. Multiple areas of the body can be targeted, though return sessions may be necessary. A consultation with our med spa team beforehand can determine the necessary number of visits. Because the procedure is non-surgical, most regular activities can be resumed immediately. The body will naturally process and eliminate the dead fat cells over the coming weeks and months following the procedure, and they will not return.
Who Is a Candidate?
Both men and women can achieve desired results from the CoolSculpting procedure. Patients with stubborn fat bulges in their abdomen, inner thighs, outer thighs, or flank area can usually hope to gain benefits from the procedure. Those who are within 30 pounds of their ideal body weight are the best candidates and will achieve maximum results. Those who have more to lose may wish to consider waiting until they are closer to their goal weight.
CoolSculpting is a safe, non-surgical cosmetic procedure for fat loss.
