If you feel like you have tried every diet imaginable and are still not able to get rid of stubborn body fat, then you might be a perfect candidate for CoolSculpting®. This FDA-approved procedure can eradicate as much as 25 percent of the fat cells at each treatment site, and there is absolutely no need for incisions or stitches. CoolSculpting® could be just what you need to once again fit into your favorite pair of jeans or head to the beach without feeling uncomfortable in your own skin.
The Truth About Losing Weight
Losing a significant amount of body fat can take years of hard work, and it is still not always enough. There may come a point when your stubborn fat is no longer responding to any lifestyle changes you make. Dealing with the last bit of fatty tissue feels nearly impossible for many people, but surgery is not always the answer. While effective, liposuction is an invasive procedure that can leave permanent scars near the treatment site. CoolSculpting® could help you rebuild your self-image by addressing those last few cosmetic issues without going under the knife.
The Science of Freezing Fat
Many patients are surprised to hear that the phenomenon of freezing fat was actually discovered by accident. During an unrelated study, doctors realized that children who ate cold treats such as popsicles tended to develop dimples on their cheeks. Eating those treats slowly destroyed the fat cells in their cheeks. CoolSculpting® takes advantage of this phenomenon by bringing fat cells to an extremely cold temperature in a short period of time.
Should I Consider CoolSculpting®?
Choosing which treatment is right for you is a very personal decision. That is why we ask our patients to meet with one of our team members to learn about all of their treatment options. As a general rule, CoolSculpting® is a great procedure for anyone who would like to eliminate a localized pocket of subcutaneous fat without surgery. Even though it is a very effective treatment, it should not be viewed as an alternative to healthy lifestyle choices. Patients enjoy the best results when they have already made progress toward their ideal weight. Those who are still unhappy after all of that hard work should consider this non-invasive procedure.
A Look at Your CoolSculpting® Appointment
After you have consulted with our team, you can go through with your treatment session. During the treatment, suction pads are placed over the skin before the machine is turned on. After the pads are removed, one of our team members will gently massage the area to increase the blood flow. The average patient starts to notice results within one or two months.
