Are you looking for a safe, simple way to improve your appearance? CoolSculpting® may be a good option. Here’s what you should know:
What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical treatment designed to eliminate bulges and fat. This procedure is FDA cleared and non-invasive. There are no needles, knives, or supplements—nothing scary or intimidating.
How Does CoolSculpting® Work?
This procedure freezes fat cells, shrinking them, and allowing them to be eliminated from the body. It is usually used to treat stubborn fat on the abdomen, thighs, and back. The targeted area is placed between cooling plates and the area is cooled to the necessary temperature.
Since this procedure is non invasive, most patients can return to their regular activities the same day. Minor side effects may include bruising, numbness, and soreness in the treated area. If there is any discomfort, it should be temporary.
Results from CoolSculpting® can often be noticed as early 3-4 weeks after treatment—results are usually most obvious after 1-3 months. The body continues to eliminate fat cells for about 4 months after the procedure.
With healthy diet and exercise, the results of this procedure should be permanent.
