FAT REDUCTION - CoolSculpting®

What is CoolSculpting?

Cool sculpting is a new, non-invasive method of reducing fat. It is particularly effective in reducing stubborn lumps, bumps, and bulges which will not go away with exercise, a proper diet or a healthy lifestyle.

What will my results be?

On average, each CoolSculpting procedure results in a 20% reduction in the treated area. After the initial treatment is complete, you can attain further reductions with additional procedures. Some patients find that one treatment fully addresses their goals. You and your doctor will need to discuss and design a plan that suits you best.

What happens during the procedure?

You and your doctor first select the area(s) to be treated. Your doctor will position the device on your body. This 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 tissue will be cooled most efficiently.

What does it feel like?

As the cooling goes to work in the first few minutes, you'll feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates and because you're seated or lying down during the one-to-three-hour procedure, the treatment is comfortable. Many people spend this time reading, working on their laptop, or even taking a nap.

Can I return to normal activities after the procedure?

Yes! The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-invasive, so you can return to normal activities immediately. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, or numbness in the treated area, but this is temporary.

What are CoolSculpting benefits?

  • No cutting, no needles, no downtime
  • Safe, comfortable, convenient
  • Natural and effective
  • Clinically proven

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 3 months.

Do I need to take special supplements or follow a strict diet and exercise program?

No supplements or pills are required and you do not have to adopt a new diet and exercise habit.

Are the results permanent?

When you have your CoolSculpting procedure, the treated fat cells will be eliminated. However, it is extremely important to continue a healthy lifestyle consisting of a good diet and regular exercise.
