How CoolSculpting Works to Slim You Down

The holiday season may be over, but you may still be sporting a few residual signs of all that celebrating on problem areas like your hips and midsection. Before you start living on celery and carrots to get rid of those post-seasons bulges, why not consider a cosmetic treatment that will eliminate stubborn fat deposits in just one short hour of your time? CoolSculpting is available at New Visage and can help you sculpt your desired body profile before the warm weather rolls around.

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a revolutionary method of body contouring that does not involve anesthesia, incisions or a recovery period. This treatment utilizes controlled cooling to target fat cells, effectively freezing and destroying them so they can be effectively eliminated by the body’s own processes. The cooling system does not penetrate the skin in any way, so you enjoy a relatively comfortable treatment session before heading right back to your daily activities.

CoolSculpting was originally designed to address isolated deposits of fat from areas like the abdomen, hips and thighs. However, a smaller application device, known as the CoolMini, is now available that allows us to treat a broader range of areas, including the arms and even under the chin. This amazingly versatile procedure offers patients the opportunity to sculpt a variety of body areas that have not responded well to diet and exercise efforts.

Who is it for?

CoolSculpting is recommended for patients that have achieved a healthy weight but have focal areas of fat they have been unable to eliminate. The procedure is not designed to be a weight loss tool. However, for those that have isolated bulges interfering with their overall body contour, CoolSculpting can smooth away those bulges and give them the smoother, leaner body profile they want.

CoolSculpting can be effective for both men and women, and works equally well on the midsection, hips, thighs and flanks. The CoolMini also allows this procedure to be used on the neck, jawline and other smaller areas of isolated fat.

How does it work?

CoolSculpting is a relatively comfortable procedure that does not require any type of anesthesia. Patients may feel a cooling sensation at the beginning of treatment that becomes more comfortable as the procedure progresses. Many patients are able to read, answer emails or even nap during the one-hour procedure.

After the CoolSculpting treatment is complete, patients are able to return to regular activities right away. Skin in the treatment area may appear slightly red, but this side effect typically subsides within a few hours of the procedure. There is little or no discomfort during or after a CoolSculpting treatment.

What type of results can I expect?

The results of CoolSculpting appear gradually as the body eliminates the treated fat cells. Most patients will start to see a circumference reduction in the treatment area in as little as three weeks. Patients may require a series of 2-3 treatment sessions to achieve full results. Once the fat is removed, the results are considered permanent as long as a healthy weight is maintained after treatment.
