What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is a cutting-edge body contouring treatment that uses the gentle power of controlled cooling to slim nearly any area of the body. It is the most popular non-surgical fat reduction treatment available in the world today, with a 95% rate of patient satisfaction.
While this treatment can be used to address excess fat on nearly any area of the body, some of the most popular treatment areas include the:
- Double chin
- Inner thighs
- Outer thighs
While other, more invasive treatments can help trim away excess fat, CoolSculpting® produces just as dramatic results with minimal downtime and discomfort. Now, looking your best is as easy as a simple series of non-invasive treatments!
How Does it Work?
When controlled cooling is applied to areas of the body, the fat cells in that area slowly become frozen and destroyed while the surrounding tissues are left unharmed. This process is called Cryolipolysis® and is the biological principle that the success of the CoolSculpting® technique is founded on. In the weeks that follow a CoolSculpting® treatment, these fat cells are slowly removed from the body, leaving the patient with a more slim, lean figure.
What is the Treatment Process Like?
During a CoolSculpting® treatment, controlled cooling is delivered to the patient’s desired treatment area through a special CoolSculpting® applicator. While some patients report that this cooling sensation can be slightly unpleasant at first, most are able to comfortably settle into treatment within the first ten minutes.
The time that each CoolSculpting® treatment takes varies depending on the extent of treatment needed and the area being treated. Fortunately, the treatment process is so comfortable and casual that patients can read, take a nap, check their email, or watch Netflix.
Following treatment, there is absolutely no downtime. While most patients experience some degree of swelling, numbness, firmness, tingling, and pain after treatment, these side effects usually subside within a few weeks after treatment.
