CoolSculpting is a revolutionary treatment used to freeze and eliminate fat cells on specific parts of the body.
It is one of many different body contouring treatments available that has been FDA approved and shown to be highly effective, while safe for the patient, to eliminate up to 20-25% of the fat cells in treated areas.
CoolSculpting uses a process called cryolipolysis to freeze the fat cells using an applicator applied to the surface of the skin above the area where stubborn fat cells live.
Once frozen, the fat cells will die and then be permanently removed from the body via the liver through the body’s natural elimination process.
Patients who have had CoolSculpting treatment have reported seeing preliminary results between one and three months after having the procedure done, with final results taking approximately six months.
CoolSculpting is intended to be used on patients who are at or near their target weight and body shape but are looking to get rid of pockets of fat that don’t seem to go away no matter how healthy they eat or how much exercise they do.
The CoolSculpting procedure can be used on more than one area during a single visit to the practitioner’s office, however multiple areas may not be able to be treated at the same time, depending on the available equipment that the office has on hand.
Discuss your desired results with a certified CoolSculpting practitioner like Jane Weston to ensure that you are getting the best treatment plan for your unique fat loss needs. Jane Weston can provide recommendations on the number of areas that can be treated in a single visit, as well as how many sessions you will need to book to get the full results you are trying to achieve.
Results can take several weeks to start being visible, and often only a single treatment is needed to provide long-lasting results.
Larger areas of the body may require additional treatments, but this can be discussed with your practitioner during your consultation appointment.
CoolSculpting has been proven to be highly effective in the elimination of up to 20-25% of the fat cells in the treated area.
Individual results will vary from patient to patient depending on the amount of fat cells, their overall body composition and how their body responds to the freezing process.
CoolSculpting is not a weight loss treatment and shouldn’t be used for patients looking to lose a large amount of fat or weight. The treatment is used to freeze, kill and eliminate fat cells in treated areas through a process called cryolipolysis.
It is intended to be used by patients who are looking to get rid of pockets of fat cells in stubborn areas such as the upper arms, thighs, stomach, butt and love handles that they can’t seem to get rid of through diet and exercise.
