With summer right around the corner you may be dreading getting back into your swimsuit. But you don’t have to fear swimsuit season! It may sound too good to be true, but there is a non-surgical treatment that can actually freeze away your fat and help you feel confident in your bikini! CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved, non-surgical procedure which uses precisely controlled cooling (cryolipolysis) to gently and effectively target and remove fat from unwanted areas underneath the skin. This treatment is great for people who want to remove fat but avoid surgery.

Defining Cryolipolysis

When fat cells are made very cold (just above the freezing point), they become irreparably damaged. CoolSculpting is able to selectively make fat cells cold, in turn causing permanent and effective fat cell loss. Once the fat cells are treated, the body clears them through a natural process over a span of 3 - 6 months. Studies reveal a superb safety record, and there have not been any reports of adverse systemic effects from treatment. Fat cells are gradually cleared from the body after treatment, so the liver and other vital organs are not impacted in any negative way.

How Much Fat Can Be Removed?

A one-hour CoolSculpting session will treat an area about the size of your palm. Two to three palm-sized areas can be treated in a single session. Research has shown that CoolSculpting can eliminate up to 20% of the fat in each area treated. Plus, additional treatments can remove more fat, so multiple treatments (to the same area) are cumulative.

Commonly Treated Areas

The most common areas treated include:

  • love handles
  • hips
  • upper and lower abdomen areas 

Post-Treatment Recovery

Most of our patients need no recovery or downtime after a CoolSculpting body contouring treatment. Immediately after the treatment your skin may be red and will feel stiff, but this resolves within 10 - 15 minutes. Redness can persist for a couple of days, and while unusual, some patients develop a bruise in the treated area. In rare occurrences, patients experience soreness in the area for a couple of weeks as well as sensation changes in the treated area for up to eight weeks.

Do you have a stubborn area that you can’t seem to control with diet or exercise? Consider CoolSculpting to get the body you’ve always wanted non-surgically with no downtime! CoolSculpting works best for patients who have a mild to moderate amount of extra fat that they would like to have removed.
