WHAT IS CRYOLIPOLYSIS?

Cryolipolysis, also known as "fat freezing" or by the product name CoolSculpting, is a procedure that involves the noninvasive cooling of body fat to break down fat cells, resulting in a reduction of body fat without damage to other tissues.

During the procedure:

  • A vacuum applicator is placed on the skin to bring it into contact with cooling panels.
  • Patients feel a cold sensation for a few minutes, as it produces an anesthetic effect.
  • The fat is cooled for up to an hour.

BENEFITS

The obvious benefit of Cryolipolysis is that it reduces unwanted fat, but take a look at these other advantages...

Targeted Fat Reduction: Everyone's body accumulates and stores fat in different places, and sometimes they aren't the places we'd choose. That's one of the key differences between weight loss and fat reduction. When you lose weight, you can't choose what fat your body burns. Cryolipolysis, on the other hand, is built to target the specific areas you choose. During the procedure, the applicator sends precise cooling into your skin from the surface. It's not cold enough to damage your skin and other tissue, but it's cold enough to kill fat cells. In the weeks after the treatment, your body clears away these dead fat cells little by little, producing a slimming physique.

Lower Cost Than Surgery $

Low Risk: For most people, the risks of surgery are the largest deterrent. While they're small when your procedure is performed by an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon, every surgery still has serious risks. CoolSculpting, on the other hand, has far fewer risks. It does have some side effects like temporary numbness and redness in the area, but they tend to be minor and fade in a hurry. There's no anesthesia involved, nor is there any bleeding.

Easy On a Busy Schedule: Cryolipolysis, takes an hour at most to treat one area, and some treatments take as little as 35 minutes. You don't even have to stop your to-do list during this time. Many patients spend the time responding to emails, reading, or working. Even better, though: there's no downtime after Cryolipolysis. You'll have some temporary side effects, like mild soreness, numbness, or redness in the treatment area. Still, these effects aren't enough to restrict you to bed or take you away from work.

No Scarring: A great alternative to surgery.

Versatile Treatment Areas: So far, CoolSculpting can treat the following areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Under the chin (the "double chin")
  • Flanks, or "love handles"
  • Bra bulge (the pinchable area next to the armpit)
  • Back
  • Upper arms
  • "Banana roll" (the area under the buttocks)
