CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure that can help reduce fat in targeted areas.* Cleared by the FDA in 2010, CoolSculpting has become a popular and safe alternative to liposuction used by many Americans. While CoolSculpting is not for everyone, it can be a very effective method of reducing fat from stubborn areas for those who are 20 to 30 pounds away from their desired weight.*
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
CoolScultping uses a technique called cryolipolysis. By pressing fat between two super-cooled panels, the fat is frozen, and the fat cells are killed.* Dead fat cells are naturally passed out of the body through the liver.* Fat in areas treated with CoolSculpting is gone, but patients should be mindful that any weight gained could return to treated areas.*
What to Expect With a CoolSculpting Treatment
It takes approximately one hour to treat each targeted section of the body. Multiple treatments spread out over a few weeks are usually needed to produce the desired reduction.* It takes a few weeks for the body to fully dispose of the dead cells, so the final results won’t be visible until some time after the last treatment.* During treatment, patients report a tugging sensation from the application of the cooling panels. In some cases, moderate swelling or pain at the site of the treatment can occur. There is also a chance that patients can experience a prolonged numbness, a feeling that the treated part of the body has “fallen asleep.”
What Kind of Results Do CoolSculpting Patients See?
While CoolSculpting removes fat from the body, it is not really a weight loss solution because the amounts of fat are small and from specific areas. Instead, as the name suggests, it helps sculpt the proportions of the body by targeting fat in areas like the love handles, stomach, thighs, and lower back.* It can also be used for the neck/chin area, where it can be combined with skin tightening treatment for even better results.*
Overall, CoolSculpting is a popular and safe option for many people looking to trim and slim their physique when diet and exercise alone are not enough. Pellé Medical Spa uses a DualSculpting method, employing two CoolSculpting machines simultaneously during treatment to both sides of a patient’s body, effectively cutting the needed treatment time in half.
