Fat Reduction with Coolsculpting™
When weight loss is the goal, most people fine tune their diet, and adjust their exercise regimen in order to help shed those unwanted pounds. Despite their best efforts, many people find that when they get close to their goal weight, they notice areas of their body that continue to cling to pockets of fat. These areas of fat are often in areas like the abdomen, love handles, thighs, and bra strap area.
The good news is that for many people, these areas of fat that are unresponsive to diet and exercise can be treated without surgery! While liposuction has often been the go-to method of fat removal, a new non-surgical method of fat removal called Coolsculpting is another treatment possibility. Coolsculpting is the latest fat reduction treatment on the market, and has been providing our staff and patients with excellent results! Coolsculpting uses controlled cooling to target and freeze fat cells which are then eliminated by your body over the course of a few weeks. Cryolipolysis, the innovative technology behind Coolsculpting, was developed by Harvard scientists who learned that cold can eliminate select fat cells without damaging the surrounding skin or tissue. Coolsculpting does not shrink the fat cells that exist, but actually eliminates them, thus reducing the number of fat cells in your targeted area. This is what leads to lasting results from Coolsculpting treatments.
During treatment, the Coolsculpting hand piece is placed on the targeted area and remains there for approximately an hour. While it is in place, our clients often watch TV, read a book, or relax. Once the hand piece is removed, the area is massaged and our clients are able to leave. There is no associated downtime with the procedure and you can resume your regular activities immediately following treatment!
If you are considering Coolsculpting to target your unwanted areas of fat you will need to be assessed in order to determine if you are a good candidate for the treatment. During consultation your target areas will be assessed, the correct size hand piece(s), and number of treatments will be determined. Because each patient’s targeted areas differ in size and quantity, a customized plan and quote will be provided to you during consultation.
