How does the CoolSculpting Fat Freezing Procedure Work?

Do you have areas of fat that never seem to go away even though you maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly? Perhaps you are prone to love handles or you have areas of back fat that do not respond to strengthening or cardio exercise. These and other pesky areas of fat can impact your self-image in both public and private situations. Rather than go under the knife, you can choose an amazing fat freezing procedure to rid your body of these deposits forever without anesthesia, injections, incisions, or downtime.

The Fat Freezing Procedure to Replace Liposuction?

Prior to 2010, there were relatively few options for body contouring. Most patients received liposuction, but not everyone is a candidate for surgery or they don’t want to deal with the downtime. Many non-surgical solutions started hitting the market that offered fat melting with heat and lasers. But when scientists noticed that children sucking on popsicles regularly lost fat in their cheeks more quickly, a new fat freezing procedure to contour the body was born: CoolSculpting.

Today, the CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is the #1 non-surgical body contouring treatment in the United States. It completely removes fat cells from the body, contours a variety of problem areas and requires no surgery or anesthesia. Plus, with treatments as short as 35 minutes, and our Dualsculpting to treat two areas simultaneously, you can get in and out quickly. CoolSculpting is FDA-approved and has been shown in studies to be a great alternative to traditional liposuction.

Does this revolutionary non-surgical fat freezing procedure replace liposuction? Not necessarily. Some patients will still see better results from a liposuction procedure with a plastic surgeon. A consultation with one of our medical providers can help determine if CoolSculpting will work for you.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

The CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure uses a method called cryolipolysis; this targets only your fat cells and does not damage other surrounding cells. As the procedure begins, you will feel a sucking sensation and some coldness from the topical applicator. Any mild discomfort you experience from this fat freezing procedure will dissipate within a few minutes. Over the treatment session, the CoolSculpting machine will use a precise temperature to freeze your fat cells, leaving surrounding tissue unaffected and undamaged. When the applicators are removed, our medical aesthetic specialist will massage the treated area to break up the fat cells. We may also use Cellutone, a cellulite treatment, which can help break up the frozen fat cells for faster results. Over the next several weeks, your body will absorb and eliminate the destroyed fat cells, and the area will gradually look more even and toned. Repeated treatments are often required to see full results. Once these fat cells are removed from your body, they will never return.

New protocols for office visits View Update

New protocols for office visits

May 12th, 2020

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic we have instituted many changes to your normal office visit. These changes have been introduced to protect everyone’s health and safety during your visit. All of our staff have been tested for COVID-19 and are negative. They are being monitored daily as well and will be practicing safety guidelines.

  1. If you are sick, do not come to the office. Call our front desk and we will reschedule your appointment promptly once you’re healthy again.
  2. Please wear a mask to your appointment.
  3. Do not bring someone else with you to your appointment. They will not be able to enter the office and wait for you. The only exceptions are for those who require medical assistance or translation assistance. Additionally, please do not bring any pets to the office with you.
  4. The day before your appointment, as in the past, you will be called to confirm your appointment. During that call you will be asked if you have any symptoms like fever, chills, muscle aches, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, loss of smell or taste. You will also be asked if you have been recently exposed to COVID-19 or have been traveling on a commercial airplane within the last 2 weeks.
  5. When you arrive for your appointment, please call the office from your car. A staff member will either tell you to come up to the office at that time or will ask you to wait in your car until they text you to come up. Before entering the front door of the office, you will be met by a staff member who will take your temperature with a no-touch forehead thermometer to be sure you don’t have a fever. They will again ask you if you have any symptoms of COVID-19. You will be given a mask if you don’t have one, as well as hand sanitizer since you touched the doorknob to enter the office. We will stagger appointments so that on the day of your treatment, you will not interact with any other patients.
  6. You will be taken directly to an exam room which has been cleaned and disinfected just prior to your arrival. There are also air filtration machines installed in each exam room which sterilize the air.
  7. Our medical assistants, who will be wearing N95 masks and protective eye shields, will take your history and prepare you for your visit. You will be asked to sign a new COVID-19 consent form in addition to any of the usual consent forms you may be used to.
  8. After your treatment, you will check out while in the exam room and any products you purchase will be brought to you. If you give us your credit card information the day before your appointment, we can handle the checkout without physically touching your card.
  9. Please try to make your follow up appointments during your office visit. With new scheduling changes and staggered appointments, last minute appointments may be difficult to schedule.
