Does CoolSculpting Really Work?

shutterstock_131719925Remove fat with no pain? No downtime?  Sounds too good to be true.  Everyone has problem areas, and if you can’t see them, it’s been Photo Shopped! When turning in the mirror, thinking how nice it would be to remove your muffin top, it probably pops into your head…”Does CoolSculpting really work?” Fortunately, the answer is yes!

The technology known as cryolipolysis isn’t new.  It has been around since 2010, but has gained popularity in recent years.  As the treatment strategy has been advanced, people have been able to transform themselves leading to the “Treatment to Transformation” protocols.  This total body treatment really provides dramatic changes for people.  It also helped to change the name from “Cryolipolysis” to “CoolSculpting”!

Many of our patients have stubborn fat that simply won’t go away. We are proud to have the newest applicators for CoolSculpting which safely deliver cooling via gel pads and rounded paddle applicators. These new applicators are more comfortable, more effective, and target the fat cells underneath the skin. The targeted cells are frozen, causing them to break apart and are eliminated through natural body processes. Once the fat leaves, it’s gone for good.

When you come into our office, you’ll receive a thorough consultation that will take a holistic approach to reshaping your body and then focus on specific areas where fat needs to be eliminated. Because every patient’s body is different, your treatment plan will be customized to fit your needs. Common treatment areas include inner and outer thighs and the front and sides of the abdomen. Your customized plan can allow treatment of more than one area of the body at one time.

CoolSculpting is a relaxed procedure.  You simply sit in a chair while the machine cools the fat.  You can watch television, read a book, surf the internet, or catch up on work. Most patients feel only a mild discomfort from the cooling and vacuum sensations which lasts only 3-5 minutes. Although one session can lead to around 20% fat reduction, we generally recommend two sessions per area for even greater results.

The beauty of CoolSculpting is that is has no downtime. It’s also permanent, if you continue to watch your diet and weight.  If you gain weight, your results will be affected.
