Stubborn pockets of fat you wish you didn't have – Try Coolsculpting

Stubborn pockets of fat you wish you didn't have.

Don’t you want to feel sexy in your bikini or swim trunks before the summer is over? With CoolSculpting, losing fat just got easier!

CoolSculpting was developed by a Harvard scientist who discovered that our fat cells freeze at lower temperatures than other tissues in our body. Subsequently, he developed a machine that uses a noninvasive vacuum applicator to draw in fat and deliver cooling at the surface of the skin. Both men and women of all ages can undergo this treatment.

CoolSculpting effectively freezes away your fat using a scientific process called cryolipolysis—a technique that works by causing your fat cells to undergo crystallization and cellular death. CoolSculpting is the only noninvasive treatment to permanently remove 20-25% of fat cells in the areas treated. The dead fat cells are then safely eliminated out of your body through your lymph system, with full results seen in 6-8 weeks. Most patients will require 2 treatments in the same area, performed 8 weeks apart, for maximum results and that “wow-factor.”

Ideal candidates for CoolSculpting are patients that are within 10-20 pounds of ideal body weight with stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. It is not a weight loss solution and it does not replace traditional methods such as liposuction. However, CoolSculpting is an ideal alternative to liposuction as it is noninvasive and requires no surgery or unsightly scars. With CoolSculpting, there is minimal downtime—possible bruising and tenderness in the areas treated for 1-2 weeks.
