CoolSculpting® gives you an amazing way to sculpt beautiful curves into your body while also getting rid of stubborn fat that has long plagued you despite your best efforts at a healthy, calorie-restricted diet and a good exercise pattern. This is a non-invasive treatment method that gives you many of the same results as liposuction does without much of the negative side effects that come with a surgical procedure. If you are interested in receiving this treatment, we encourage you to learn more about CoolSculpting® and schedule a consultation with one of our practitioners so that you can ask us all of your questions.
As previously stated, CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive treatment method that only uses a handheld device that is attached to your skin over the desired treatment area. When we attach it to your skin, it will quickly cool your skin with very cold temperatures, eventually numbing the area so that you do not need any local anesthetic. Plus, you will feel some suction at the area as the device works.
The way that CoolSculpting® provides its great results is by freezing fat cells that lie beneath your skin. Over the course of your treatment, these cells will actually crystallize, which will cause them to die. Then, over the following weeks, these dead cells will be naturally removed by your body. Gradually, your new shape and curves will come to life as the fat goes away.
This method, also known as cryolipolysis, was first discovered by Harvard researchers who noticed dimple formation on the cheeks of children who sucked frozen popsicles for long periods. They took this knowledge and put it to work on other areas of the body. Today, CoolSculpting® can be used in your most problematic areas.
CoolSculpting® is a great treatment option for those who are not seeing the results that they would like with diet and exercise alone. It is often used after pregnancy or as the hormones begin changing during middle-age, often bringing weight gain in new areas of the body. However, this treatment can be used on nearly any adult of either gender.
