CoolSculpting® is a revolutionary technology that freezes and eliminates unwanted fat cells without surgery or downtime. It specifically targets unwanted fat cells, as a result, the cells die in the selected area creating a noticeable reduction in fat bulges. The end results look completely natural.
Outside of diet and exercise, traditional medical methods of fat reduction typically involve surgery, however with CoolSculpting, there are no needles, no surgery, and no downtime. Patients are generally relaxed enough during the procedure that they can read, browse on their computer or mobile device, watch tv, or simply lay back and relax in the comfortable atmosphere of the Chic La Vie™ Medical Spa.
CoolSculpting is the perfect solution for individuals who have unwanted fat that is unyielding to diet and exercise. CoolSculpting is not for people who are severely overweight or considered medically obese, however, a good candidate may have bulges in a few areas they would like to get rid of. It is a safe and effective non-surgical alternative to liposuction.
CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared procedure for the thigh, flank (love handles), and abdomen. The CoolSculpting procedure is performed worldwide, and with over a track record of over 1.5 million CoolSculpting procedures performed, it’s been validated to be a safe and effective treatment for non-surgical fat reduction.
CoolSculpting crystallizes the treated fat cells. These frozen cells die, and are naturally discarded from the body. Once the cells are gone, they are gone for good leaving patients slimmer and more toned looking.
It takes around 3 weeks for many patients to start seeing the results of the CoolSculpting treatment. The most striking results take from one to three months. It is important to discuss your goals with your practitioner so they design a custom treatment plan tailored for your individual needs. Session times vary depending on the number of areas that need to be targeted.
To initiate the treatment we will position the device on the appropriate area of your body. The device will then draw the bulge up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm pull with adequate pressure – enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be cooled most efficiently. Depending on your needs, your session should last approximately sixty minutes.
After a CoolSculpting procedure, most patients are able to return to work and resume normal activities immediately. In the areas that have been treated, some patients report redness, tingling, numbness, or minor bruising. Side effects, if any, will be minimal and only temporary.
