CoolSculpting has quickly become one of the most highly sought-after treatments for fat reduction! It is non-invasive, involves no downtime and takes just one hour per area to treat, making it a procedure that can even be done on your lunch break from work!
During a typical CoolSculpting appointment, a technician places a gel pad over the area to be treated to act as a barrier between your body and the CoolSculpting device. Next, the device is cooled to the appropriate temperature and placed on the gel pad. The fat underneath the pad will freeze, but not any of the surrounding organs, nerves or tissue (because they freeze at a much lower temperature than the fat cells). Once the fat cells have been frozen, they will die and be consumed by regular cells. Through the body’s natural processes, the dead cells are then eliminated from the body. The area being treated will be reduced by 20-25% during the next 4-12 weeks following the treatment. Some patients will opt to have more than one treatment per area in order to achieve their ideal results.
