CoolSculpting

Coolsculpting®

CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise. CoolSculpting actually kills fat cells, meaning that once they are eliminated, they are gone for good! The results are proven, noticeable, and lasting, so you'll look great from every angle.

How does CoolSculpting work?

CoolSculpting uses a safe, precise and controlled technology called Cryolipolysis® to safely freeze adipose fat cells. Once the treated fat cells are frozen, they die off over time and are naturally flushed though the body's natural elimination process. CoolSculpting targets the fat cells, not the surrounding tissue, making this a safe way to induce lipolysis - the breaking down of fat cells. Technically speaking, when an adipose cell dies, it goes into a process called apoptosis - a natural, controlled cell death - which leads to the release of cytokines and other inflammatory mediators that gradually eliminate affected cells. These mediators then work to digest the adipose cells, flushing them through the lymphatic system (urination). CoolSculpting

How long do the CoolSculpting results last?

One of the greatest things about this fat melting option is that the results are long term. Once the fat cells are destroyed, those same cells do not come back. With regular weight loss, CoolSculptingdue to diet and exercise, fat cells only shrink, however the number of cells remains the same. With CoolSculpting, the treated fat cells are removed, thus greatly decreasing the possibility of weight gain. This is not to say weight gain is impossible, however, there will be fewer fat cells available to expand for weight gain.

CoolSculpting Post Treatment

There is no down time associated with this treatment, however, patients have recorded feeling tender in the area for a few days post treatment. Immediately following the treatment, you will likely experience some redness and swelling, which will begin to subside. Also, because the surrounding skin is kept cold for the duration of the treatment, it is not uncommon to feel numb in the area for a few days as well.
