What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is an extremely safe therapy that is FDA-cleared, and was developed by leading researchers at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital. This technology takes advantage of the fact that fatty tissue freezes at a faster rate than other tissue in the body, such as skin and nerves.
CoolSculpting® freezes and kills fat cells using special paddles placed on the skin. Patients will feel a very cold sensation at first, but will adjust to it in about ten minutes. It is so comfortable that many patients read or take a nap during treatment. A session usually takes about an hour, and requires no downtime afterwards. Patients can plan on returning to work, exercise, or other everyday activities immediately. Some patients may feel side effects for a day or two, including numbness, tingling, swelling, or bruising. Over the next three months, the fat cells are naturally expelled from the body, gradually creating a more toned physique.
Results of CoolSculpting® Treatment
In the weeks following your procedure, you will notice that your treatment area progressively becoming more toned as your body flushes out the dead fat cells. Results should be most apparent about two to three months after your treatment. Some patients choose to schedule a second treatment to achieve more dramatic results, or to target another area of the body. Patients committed to a proper diet and regular exercise can enjoy CoolSculpting® treatment results that last for years.
