Clients come to us when they are looking to improve their body’s natural contours in the most effective way possible.
What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is a procedure that uses controlled cooling techniques to freeze away fat cells and eliminate unwanted body fat in the abdomen, inner and outer thigh, chin, and love handle region. The procedure targets specific problem areas on the body and gently freezes them to create a slimmer physique. The fat cells that have been frozen die over time and leave the body looking more toned. CoolSculpting® involves no incisions or anesthesia and requires very minimal downtime, which is why many clients prefer it as opposed to more invasive procedures. It is also the only non-surgical fat-reduction procedure that has been approved by the FDA.
What Are the Benefits of CoolSculpting®?
- No incisions or anesthesia
- No preparation before surgery
- Minimal discomfort during treatment
- Very little downtime required for recovery
- No prescribed pain medication after surgery
What Happens During the Procedure?
During your procedure, you will sit in a treatment chair, and a gel pad will be placed on the area you desire fat reduction. An applicator that is connected to a CoolSculpting® machine will be attached to the gel pad, and the area of fat will be drawn up and into the applicator to begin freezing. You may feel some suction-like pressure at first, but any discomfort will soon dissipate. The amount of time it takes to complete CoolSculpting® treatment depends on each case but typically takes no more than an hour.
What Is Recovery Like?
Immediately after your CoolSculpting® procedure, you may feel some slight irritation and soreness in the targeted area, but these side effects are only temporary. Within a few weeks, your body will begin to metabolize the fat cells that have been frozen – other areas that were not treated with CoolSculpting® will not be impacted – and you may begin to see results within the first three weeks. You will notice the most drastic changes after one to three months, and your body will continue to process fat cells for up to six months after treatment. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, there is no reason why your CoolSculpting® procedure will not last, and because it is so minimally invasive, you can schedule follow-up procedures at a later date.
