Coolsculpting® is designed for both men and women who would like some help contouring their bodies but don’t want go under anesthesia and endure the recovery of the traditional surgical remedies. Coolsculpting® is an FDA approved treatment that reduces the temperature of the fat cells in an area to a temperature which causes them to break down and then be carried away by the body. In most cases, a 60 minute treatment yields a 20 to 25% reduction of fat in the treated area. The skin overlying the area remains normal while the underlying fat cells are crystallized and then broken down and carried away by the body.
Coolsculpting® treatments are safe, noninvasive, effective, and usually take about an hour to perform. The treatments are great for patients with busy lifestyles who cannot afford time away from their work or family. The treatments are performed in the office without anesthesia. The procedure is great for patients with busy lifestyles since they can return to work and regular activities that same day. Most patients begin to notice the effects within a few weeks and the procedure can be repeated multiple times for optimal results.
