What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is a cosmetic procedure that safely freezes away fat from targeted problem areas along the body. CoolSculpting® is non-invasive and requires no anesthesia or downtime, with results that last for years.
How does CoolSculpting® Work?
CoolSculpting® is a simple, painless and non-invasive procedure that works because dramatic temperature changes are known to naturally destroy fat cells. CoolSculpting® is non-invasive, which means that there are virtually no side effects associated with it. The procedure is safely performed using a cooling device that gently destroys fat cells by freezing them, allowing the body to eliminate them naturally over the course of time. This produces a natural slimming process with gradual, increased toning and definition occurring for several months after a single treatment. Since CoolSculpting® requires no incisions or surgery, there are no scars to worry about, and no downtime following treatment.
What kind of results can CoolSculpting® achieve?
CoolSculpting® can reduce inches from problem areas such as the abdomen, buttocks, hips, arms, and thighs, by destroying fat cells in those areas while simultaneously tightening the muscle, and increasing contour and definition. While a CoolSculpting® treatment cannot achieve the same degree of transformation as plastic surgery, the results mimic the process of natural weight loss as fat cells melt away gradually over time, producing a more subtle and natural effect. CoolSculpting® is considered one of the safest and least invasive body contouring procedures available today, and produces natural, long-lasting results. You may also choose to combine CoolSculpting® with other procedures to achieve more comprehensive results.
What type of candidate is most suitable for CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is most suitable for healthy, active adults that have maintained a stable and healthy weight but still struggle with stubborn bulges that don’t respond to diet and exercise. CoolSculpting® is ideal for use on the thighs, back, and belly. If you have accumulated fatty deposits in areas other than those mentioned, or if you wish to treat larger areas with a higher volume of fat, Dr. Austin may recommend an alternate procedure such as liposuction to achieve your aesthetic goals.
How does CoolSculpting® differ from Liposuction?
CoolSculpting® is non-invasive and thereby produces less dramatic results than liposuction. While CoolSculpting® treats minor bulges in specific areas of the body, liposuction achieves much more dramatic results and is more versatile for use anywhere on the body and face. CoolSculpting® is recommended to eliminate small to moderate areas of fat, while liposuction is recommended for larger areas. While both procedures provide permanent destruction of fat cells in target areas, CoolSculpting® destroys up to 20% of fat cells per treated area, while liposuction can target up to 70% of fat cells in each treatment area.
