SAY GOODBYE TO MUFFIN TOPS, BELLY, LOVE HANDLES AND MORE
Can you pinch an inch? Or two? Or three? The truth is we all have stubborn fat. Proper healthy diet and exercise are sometimes not enough to keep these unwanted bulges away. If you find yourself struggling with that “little bit extra”, we have the solution for you. It’s called CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting is the coolest, most innovative, non-surgical way to lose those annoying bumps and bulges of stubborn fat. This technology targets and cools unwanted fat cells in the selected area to induce a noticeable, natural-looking reduction in fat volume.
Unlike most other methods of fat reduction, CoolSculpting involves no needles, surgery, or downtime. Patients often spend procedure time reading, working on their laptops, or simply relaxing.
It’s safe, FDA-cleared and effective. Results look natural and can be seen as early as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results after one to three months.
What will the results be?
Many patients are satisfied after one treatment. However, during your consultation, a treatment plan will be tailored to your specific needs.
What happens during the treatment?
To initiate the treatment we will position the device on your body. The device will then draw the bulge up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm pull and pressure; enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be cooled most efficiently. The controlled cooling targets and crystallizes fat cells without affecting the surrounding tissues. These crystallized fat cells then self-destruct through a process called Cryolipolysis and then are gradually eliminated by the body’s own immune system. In the two months following treatment, the fat layer in these targeted areas is gradually reduced. Developed by renowned Harvard scientists, this treatment is a safe and effective way to keep those unwanted bulges at bay.
How do I get started?
Our doctors and nurses can do a careful analysis and consultation to see if you are a good candidate for this treatment. Of course, diet and exercise remain important for overall health and fitness, but those stubborn bulges that persist can be frozen away. How cool is that?
CoolSculpting involves an hour of time for each treatment, with minimal discomfort.
Can I return to normal activities after the procedure?
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?
You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after one to three months. Your body is still flushing fat cells and will continue doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.
Are the results permanent?
During CoolSculpting, the treated fat cells are eliminated. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, long-term results should remain stable.
