Stubborn pockets of fat can be an unfortunate fact of life. They tend to cling onto certain areas of the body no matter how much you diet and exercise. Previously, there was not much that could be done about this problem. Now, people have the option of using CoolSculpting®, a revolutionary treatment for sculpting the body you have been dreaming of. This is a treatment that goes after the fat cells themselves, resulting in dramatic and long-lasting results.
How Does CoolSculpting® Work?
CoolSculpting® works by freezing fat cells to the point that they can no longer function. This will result in them crystallizing and eventually dying. Once this happens, your body will begin the process of naturally flushing the fat out. Your body stopped growing new fat cells sometime during your teen years, meaning you do not have to worry about them coming back. The results are very gradual and natural-looking because it takes the body a few weeks to fully flush out the fat.
You can choose to have CoolSculpting® done on any one or more of the following areas with our cutting-edge CoolAdvantage applicator:
- Upper Arms
- “Bra Fat”
- Double Chin
- Underneath the Buttocks
What Are CoolSculpting® Treatments Like?
The first step in the CoolSculpting® process is always to have a personalized treatment plan created. This is done at a consultation. At this consultation, the targeted areas can be determined and the number of treatment sessions necessary can be determined. The number of sessions depends on the size as well as the number of the targeted areas.
Most people find the treatment itself to be very relaxing. The targeted areas are covered with a cooling pad. You will be reclined or laying down in a comfortable position. While the treatment is happening, you are free to read, play on your phone, etc. The pad will cool these cells down to the point of crystallization. After the treatment session, you can immediately resume your normal daily activities.
At our office, we use the new CoolAdvantage applicator, which cuts treatment time down to just 35 minutes, as compared to the normal 60 minutes. We will have you in and out of here in no time and on your way toward a slimmer, more contoured you.
