Freeze Off the Fat with CoolSculpting

Published on: April 8, 2018

Do you have areas on your body that stubbornly hold onto unwanted fat deposits? You are not alone. Despite diet and exercise, many people have spots on their abdomen, thighs, buttocks, upper arms or even under their chin that have fatty deposits. While there are surgical options to remove fat, such as liposuction, these can require recovery and downtime. Another option is CoolSculpting, an FDA-approved method of removing unwanted fat.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

Using advanced cryolipolysis technology, CoolSculpting essentially freezes fat cells in the targeted area. This kills the fat cells, which are absorbed by the body over the following weeks and months after the procedure. As the dead fat cells are eliminated, the treated area become slimmer. Most procedures take about 90-days to see the finally results. Once the fat is gone, it is gone for good. Fat cells do not rejuvenate, so once they are removed, they do not come back.

Prime candidates for CoolSculpting have a stable, healthy weight but have areas that retain fat. The CoolSculpting procedure can be done under the experienced hand of a physician, usually a dermatologist or plastic surgeon. Most treatments take less than an hour, but some patients may have more than one area treated. It is an outpatient procedure that is not painful during the treatment. Some people have mild discomfort during the first few minutes until the numbing effect occurs.

If you are looking for a non-surgical option to reduce fat in specific areas, CoolSculpting may be the right treatment for you. Find a dermatologist that offers CoolSculpting to learn more about the benefits of using this non-invasive method to achieve the shape you desire.
