Are you leading a healthy life by exercising and eating right, but are still struggling to lose unwanted and stubborn body fat? CoolSculpting® may be the answer you are looking for. This is a quick and non-invasive procedure which can help you lose unwanted fat in targeted areas such as your abdomen, love handles, thighs, hips, and arms. This procedure is perfect for patients who cannot or do not wish to undergo surgery in order to achieve their ideal body shape.
CoolSculpting® is a safe alternative to liposuction in that it non-surgical and requires no anesthesia. Unlike liposuction, with CoolSculpting® there is no incision and thus no scarring. Since this is not a surgical procedure, there are no needles, no pain and there is no downtime. CoolSculpting® is a better option for people who have smaller amounts of fat since the procedure does not suck out the fat as with liposuction. With CoolSculpting® the fat is frozen and the body is contoured into the desired shape.
The procedure can be done in the office in as little as one hour so you can get back to your daily life in no time. CoolSculpting® works by targeting and freezing unwanted fat cells which then become crystallized and then eventually gets disposed of by the body. First, a cooling pad containing gel is placed over the area and then the cooling head is placed over the pad and the wand begins freezing the fat. There is also the option of treating two areas at once if desired. After the fat is frozen with the wand, the area is massaged. The entire procedure takes about one to two hours depending on the area.
CoolSculpting® works well for both men and women, results can be seen in as little as three weeks and are life-changing. Because CoolSculpting® works in targeted areas and is less invasive than liposuction, it may take more than one procedure to achieve your desired results. Ideal candidates for the procedure are already at their desired body weight and only need extra help targeting specific areas in which diet and exercise have not been successful.
