What is CoolScuplting®?
Most of us are reluctant to consider having injections or surgery, but when stubborn fat refuses to be shifted by diet or exercise there has been a little alternative–until now. An innovative fat freezing procedure called CoolSculpting® offers a non-invasive way to reduce fatty tissue.
How CoolScuplting® Works
Fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than the surrounding tissue. The Harvard scientists who developed CoolSculpting® used this fact to find a method of freezing the fat cells so they crystallize and die. The body is then able to metabolize them so that they melt away naturally. The process, which is approved by the FDA, uses:
- No suction, no injections, and no surgery.
- Instead, a gel pack is placed on the area to be treated, and a special machine draws up a fatty area using vacuum pressure.
- Each area is treated for one hour.
In a 4 to 16 week period, the fatty area treated with CoolSculpting® is reduced by 20-25%. Best of all, the results are permanent.
CoolSculpting® causes no scarring or damage to the skin, so it does not need recovery time. It is so comfortable that you can read or sleep away the hour that it takes. You can have the treatment while on your lunch break and go back to work afterward. Typically, patients feel some mild tenderness in the treated area for a few days.
