CoolSculpting is a medical device used to destroy fat cells. The procedure is a non- invasive alternative to liposuction that relies on controlled cooling for non-invasive local reduction of fat deposits to reshape body contours. What does this actually mean for you? In layman terms it mean that the procedure freezes and then kills your fat cells. You can expect to see a fat reduction of 20-30% in the treated area. This procedure is not ment for super overweight people. CoolSculpting was designed for the person who needs help with that extra bit of fat that doesn’t go away. It has been FDA approved for both the abdomen and the flanks (love handles) with great results. We have had many happy people leave our office after a treatment.
The procedure itself is virtually pain free. Some people have a “cold” sensation or a tingling feeling. The only reported side effects are redness, bruising and numbness., but even those are not long-lasting. If you are interested in CoolSculpting contact our office for a free consultation.
