Eating right and staying active are important parts of a healthy lifestyle. That said, they are sometimes not enough to get us to our body goals. This is where CoolSculpting®, a revolutionary way to lay back and contour your body, can come in handy. It is completely non-surgical but can give you dramatic improvements. Here at Grossman Dermatology, we are proud to offer our patients this fat freezing solution and encourage you to learn more about it.
How Does Fat Freezing with CoolSculpting® Work?
The goal of CoolSculpting® is to permanently destroy fat cells. This is done by reducing their temperature to the point that they cannot survive. When this happens, the contents of the cells are released and flushed out of the body through natural metabolic processes.
Results develop over time with CoolSculpting®. This is because it will take your body time to flush out the fat that has been released. As a result, your new body will emerge in time, just like with exercise. You should begin to see visible improvements within weeks, with peak results being achieved after a few months.
The reason this treatment is so effective is it helps with fat reduction instead of weight loss. Although they may seem the same, losing weight just changes the size of your fat cells. Fat reduction, which is what CoolSculpting® does, actually permanently gets rid of fat cells. Destroyed fat cells are not replaced by your body.
The CoolSculpting® Experience
After your initial consultation, where we can discuss your goals and make a treatment plan, it will be time for the treatment itself. You will be able to relax in a comfortable position. Although you may experience intense cold for a few minutes, this quickly fades. People find it so relaxing that they sometimes fall asleep! Many people choose to use this time to read, listen to music, respond to emails, etc. When the treatment is over, you can immediately resume your normal activities. There is no downtime associated with CoolSculpting®.
Who is a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is a great way to target stubborn pockets of fat. It is not intended to treat obesity. You may be an ideal candidate if you are looking to remove fat in one or more of the following areas:
- Love Handles
- Bra Fat
- Banana Roll (Underneath the Buttocks)
- Upper Arms
- Double Chin
It is important to be in good overall health and committed to a healthy lifestyle. Although the fat cells that are destroyed by CoolSculpting® are gone forever, that does not mean that new problem areas cannot appear in the future.
