What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a non-surgical body contouring and fat reduction procedure that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat pockets that haven’t responded to diet and exercise. CoolSculpting is a great non-invasive alternative to other surgical procedures such as liposuction.

Who Is a Candidate for CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is intended for those who have excess fat in areas that don’t respond to traditional methods. CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss procedure for people who are overweight. An ideal candidate for CoolSculpting should have noticeable bulges in certain areas that they’d like to sculpt and flatten. This procedure is very popular because it benefits patients looking for even better results from their diet and exercise routine without a surgical procedure.

What Areas Can CoolSculpting Treat?

How it Works

The CoolSculpting applicator safely delivers controlled cooling to gently and effectively freeze fat cells underneath the skin. As the fat cells are treated, they begin to crystallize (freeze) and then die. Over the following weeks and months, your body naturally eliminates the dead cells, leaving you with a slimmer and sculpted shape. This process is safe and effective, since CoolSculpting maintains the cooling sensation at a specific threshold that will only affect fat cells underneath the skin and not damage the skin itself.

Downtime & Side Effects

One of the most attractive characteristics of CoolSculpting at Cosmedic Dermatology the lack of downtime associated with treatment. At the beginning of the procedure, patients can expect to feel an intense cold. However, after few minutes, the area will become numb, making the procedure quite comfortable. Many patients multitask and catch up on their entertainment, work, or homework during the treatment session, which can take as little as thirty minutes.
The side effects of CoolSculpting are minor and usually resolve within a day or so. Some common side effects that patients experience include:
•Numbness at applicator site
•Skin sensitivity
