You exercise. You eat right. Still, stubborn fat bulges seem immune to your diet and exercise regimen. You don’t feel as confident as you should, or could, in your own skin. A body sculpting procedure known as Coolsculpting® can help change all that!
What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is a revolutionary, non-surgical contouring treatment that freezes stubborn fat cells, allowing them to be naturally eliminated from your body. No needles, no special diet, no supplements, no surgery are required. Most importantly, there is no downtime! It’s safe, FDA-cleared, and effective.
Is CoolSculpting® the right body shaping treatment for me?
The ideal candidate is someone who is at or near their ideal body weight, takes good care of themselves and is looking for a non-surgical alternative to liposuction to help reduce diet and exercise resistant fat bulges.
What areas can be treated at the Mentor, Ohio office?
The most common areas treated are referred to as the “love handles”, “bra or back fat” and “muffin top”. The full abdomen is a common treatment area, as are the inner and outer thighs.
What is the treatment like?
The CoolSculpting® device is positioned on the area to be treated, and the “bulge” area to be treated is drawn up between two cooling plates. These plates cool the treated area to 55 degrees Fahrenheit. this lower temperature is cool enough to damage the fat cells and start the body’s process of eliminating them. Many patients choose to work on their computer, listen to music or relax and read a book while the treatment is underway.
How will I feel after a treatment?
CoolSculpting® is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, numbness or discomfort in the treated area, but this is temporary and will resolve completely. Often times, patients return to work after the session is over.
When will I see results?
Following the procedure, a gradual reduction in the thickness of the fat layer will take place. You may start to see changes as early as three weeks after CoolSculpting® with the most dramatic results being seen after one to three months. Your body will continue to eliminate the treated fat cells for approximately four months after your procedure.
Are the results permanent?
As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, long-term results should remain stable.
