CoolSculpting Procedure Is Turning Heads

CoolSculpting Procedure Is Turning HeadsIn our continued search for innovative aesthetic technology, the CENTER offers the CoolSculpting treatments to freeze stubborn fat. Sometimes, no matter how healthy your diet is, or how much you exercise, stubborn fat seems impossible to lose. Additionally, as we age, it becomes even more difficult to get rid of those last five pounds.

But, thanks to a unique procedure that uses a controlled cooling applicator, there is a new non-invasive way to remove unwanted fat cells. The revolutionary contouring technique helps eliminate stubborn fat, and helps you achieve the body you deserve and have always wanted. In short, CoolSculpting gives you results that diet and exercise cannot achieve as quickly, or as effectively.

The Ideal Candidate for CoolSculpting

The perfect patient, and not everyone is the perfect patient obviously, is someone who is within reasonable range of their ideal body weight and follows a reasonable diet and exercise, but has an area of unwanted fat.

While this non-surgical approach is a good treatment for patients who only need minimal fat reduction, it is not an alternative to a healthy diet or lifestyle, and not a treatment to lose weight. In addition, please note that CoolSculpting cannot be used to treat cellulite, sagging skin or visceral fat areas.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

We will place the CoolSculpting device, which consists of two cold panels, on the desired area of the body to be treated. The device will then draw your fat bulge up between the cooling panels, and it will feel like someone is pinching and pulling on your fat. This pressure is the result of the CoolSculpting device cooling your tissue and targeting your fat cells. It uses a very sensitive and specific temperature that affects the fat cells, while preserving the overlying skin. Because fat cells are susceptible to cold, prolonged exposure to it initiates a sequence called “apoptosis”, or programmed cell death. This leads to the natural elimination of cells, without releasing harmful substances into the surrounding area. This unique technology uses a targeted controlled cooling process that kills the fat cells underneath the skin. Once the fat cells are crystallized from the CoolSculpting treatment, the fat cells die and are naturally eliminated from your body.

How long is a CoolSculpting Procedure?

The treatment itself usually takes just over an hour. During the first five minutes of the CoolSculpting treatment, you will feel a pulling or pinching sensation, as the fat is getting placed in between the two cold panels. While you might think it is cold at first, the area will eventually go numb. Many people will read books or watch movies while they wait.

Is CoolSculpting Safe?

This revolutionary procedure does not only provide amazing results, but is one of the safest treatment options currently on the market. It is FDA approved, and has proven results. It has been extensively studied, and has fairly consistent and predictable results. It is the combination of safety and results that makes this particular treatment option so appealing.

What Can I Expect from CoolSculpting?

With each one to two hour session, about 20% of the fat is removed. Although 20% might not seem like much to some, there is a noticeable improvement compared to before the appointment. In addition, those who would like more improvement may come back for more sessions until there are only a select amount of fat cells left.

What are the Benefits of CoolSculpting?

There are no knives, no suction hoses, no needles, and no scars in this non-invasive, safe, and FDA approved treatment option. CoolSculpting is a completely non-invasive treatment that gives you stunning results. Unlike other surgical procedures, which can require anesthesia, each CoolSculpting treatment will take about an hour, and take place right here in the CENTER office.

Another great benefit of CoolSculpting is that there is no downtime. You can return to your daily life immediately after your treatment. In fact, many people are able to squeeze their CoolSculpting treatment into their lunch break!

If you are having a hard time losing those last couple of pounds, you might be a good candidate for CoolSculpting. For more information, schedule a consultation today by calling 310.461.0303.
