❄️ What is Fat Freezing? ❄️
Years ago, scientists at Harvard University observed that some children who ate popsicles got dimples in their cheeks. Dr’s Rox Anderson and Dieter Manstein realized that the popsicles were freezing and eliminating small pockets of fat cells. This idea that cold can target fat cells, without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue was the insight behind cyrolipolysis., the proven science on which the CoolSculpting procedure is based.
The CoolSculpting® treatment is a non-invasive fat freezing treatment that effectively reduces fat in certain self-proclaimed “problem spots” (you know, those bulges that just won’t go away, regardless of how much you sweat it out on the treadmill). While it isn’t a weight loss solution, fat freezing can reduce pouches of fat by 25% in the treated areas! Fat cells that are frozen during the CoolSculpting procedure gradually die off and leave the body through the body’s natural elimination process. That’s why the results are long-term. Untreated areas will have no change in fat cell distribution.
❄️Fat Reduction Versus Weight Loss ❄️
After dieting and weight loss, fat cells get smaller but the number of fat cells stays the same. When weight is gained, fat cells get bigger.
The CoolSculpting fat-freezing procedure actually reduces the number of fat cells in treated areas by about 20% to 25%.
These fat cells are naturally processed and eliminated, so they won’t migrate to another area of your body. And, unlike what happens with other procedures, there’s no change to fat cells in untreated areas.
❄️ What Areas Can Be Treated? ❄️
The CoolSculpting® device is FDA cleared to address some of the most problematic areas of stubborn fat including double chin, upper arms, bra fat, love handles, tummy, banana roll (under your butt) inner and outer thighs.
❄️ The Process ❄️
The Consultation – During your initial consultation we’ll discuss your goals and timeline. If you’re preparing for a major event you’ll want to start planning months ahead of that date. We’ll design a personalized treatment plan that will eliminate up to 25% of the targeted fat.
The Treatment: The clinician will mark the treatment areas then apply a fat freezing applicator. The applicator gentle holds the skin in place and slowly freezes the fat cells to the point of cell death. Most patients say the treatment is only mildly uncomfortable and only during the first few minutes of the treatment. After about five minutes the treatment area becomes numb. The typical application takes 35 minutes. Most patients use this time to catch up on emails or watch a movie.
After the treatment: One of the best things about CoolScupting is there is no downtime and you can return to your normal activities that same day. That said, you may experience some soreness for a few days – like you worked out the muscle in that area really hard.
The Results: While it depends on the individual patient, results usually begin to appear about 1 month and are seen best at about 3 months. Some patient may require two or more treatment sessions, depending on their goal.
