Are you near or at your ideal weight, but still can’t seem to get rid of stubborn fat in certain areas? Let CoolSculpting® do what it does best – target and reduce stubborn fat that resists diet and exercise.
With CoolSculpting®, we are able to reduce target areas of fat by 20-25%. CoolSculpting® is an FDA cleared treatment that uses cryolipolysis, or “fat freezing” to reduce fat in nine areas of the body including the chin and jawline areas, thighs, abdomen and flanks, bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks, and upper arms. Watch your confidence rise as CoolSculpting® helps you get rid of those fatty areas you’ve been self conscious about!
CoolSculpting® At A Glance
CoolSculpting® works by targeting areas of fat, freezing the fat cells, and destroying and breaking them down. Our Master Trained CoolSculpting® providers will measure your targeted area and mark where the applicators will be placed. The skin is then prepped and the applicator is placed on the body while suctioning the skin to the applicator. It is secured and brings the area(s) to a freezing temperature to freeze the fat cells deep beneath the skin. After the applicator is removed, the area is massaged to accelerate the reduction of fat cells. The body then uses its lymphatic system to eliminate the broken down fat cells. CoolSculpting® requires little to no downtime so you are free to get back to your normal activities as soon as the procedure is completed.
Common side effects include temporary redness, swelling, bruising, numbness, stinging, tenderness, cramping, or skin sensitivity. All side effects resolve on their own within a few days.
CoolSculpting® treatments may be a bit uncomfortable, but most clients do not report pain. The discomfort occurs during the first few minutes of treatment as the targeted area is cooled to a freezing temperature. Some patients report a pinching, stinging, or aching sensation while the area is cooled down. After a few minutes the area will go numb and the discomfort of cooling will cease.
During your consultation, we will determine if you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting or if another laser treatment is a better fit. Note, if you are considering CoolSculpting® to target fat cells under the chin, Kybella may be another treatment option.
