You’ve probably seen and heard a lot of buzz about CoolSculpting lately. We get questions everyday about this remarkable new procedure. Remember – a personal consultation is the best way to determine if CoolSculpting is right for you. But here are a few facts to get you started!
- CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure that uses cooling technology to selectively reduce fat layers in problem areas like the abdomen and flanks. When fat cells are exposed to extreme cold, a process of natural removal is triggered, gradually reducing the thickness of the fat layer. The result is a visible reduction in fat bulges, while the surrounding SKIN is left unaffected.
- CoolSculpting is non-invasive and requires no needles, surgery or downtime. Most patients can resume most daily activities right after a treatment which is one hour per site.
- It’s important to know that CoolSculpting is not a weight-reduction program. The best candidates for this procedure are people near their ideal body weight who eat well and exercise regularly, but have pockets of fat that have not responded to a healthy lifestyle.
- On average, one CoolSculpting procedure results in about 20% reduction of fat in the treated areas. Patients often start seeing results in as little as three weeks post-treatment, with the most dramatic results occurring over three to four months. Some areas require more than one treatment depending on different factors.
