Does Coolsculpting Work?

B&A-VanNatta-2Set croppedFirst here is the skinny on how it works.  Many of us have fatty areas that resist diet and exercise.  For example, back fat, after baby belly bulge and thunder thighs to name a few.  Coolsculpting uses controlled cooling to target and crystalize fat cells.  After the treatment these fat cells are gradually removed by the immune system.  In the weeks and months following treatment, remaining fat cells condense, reducing the fat layer.

A few of us in the office have tried it out.  I personally, have lost my baby bump!   I noticed my jeans are fitting better.  I recently treated my thighs so I will get back to you on those results.CoolSculpting® of the thighs was just recently FDA approved. CoolSculpting is a completely non-surgical and non-invasive procedure that is performed in the office. There is no anesthesia, no needles, no sedation, and no time needed off from work.

CoolSculpting freezes the fat away permanently in the area it is performed. The procedure takes 2 hours to perform on each leg (4 hours total) to treat the saddle bag area. After treatment, it is not unusual to have mild discomfort and some swelling or bruising. Patients can resume work, exercise, and normal activities right after treatment. Results are first seen about 1 month after treatment, and final results are seen by 3 months.
