You exercise and eat right, but stubborn fat bulges remain. That’s because they’re often immune to diet and exercise. CoolSculpting is a revolutionary non-surgical contouring treatment that freezes stubborn fat, which is then eliminated naturally from the body. The FDA-approved treatment requires no needles, no special diets, no supplements, no incisions, and no downtime.
Nine out of ten patients experience fat reduction after just one CoolSculpting treatment, which can reduce the fat layer by 20%. A second treatment can reduce fat by another 20%. Final losses may be more or less, depending on the patient.
Results begin to show within three weeks of treatment in most people. After two months of treatments, the results are dramatic. Your body will continue to flush out fat cells for up to four months, however, so you will continue to show improvement. The results are long-lasting, especially if you maintain a steady weight and exercise regularly.
Who is a Candidate for CoolSculpting?
If you have pockets of localized fat and good skin elasticity, you might be a good candidate for CoolSculpting. Some patients might benefit more from surgical liposuction, but Dr. Tehrani will advise you of the best treatment during your consultation and examination. He will always suggest the least invasive procedure for you that will provide you with the results you want.
Note that CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure.
COOLSCUPTING: BEFORE AND AFTER PHOTOS
The CoolSculpting Procedure
Dr. Tehrani works with you to select the area(s) to be treated. The device draws the bulge up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm tug and pull – enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be efficiently cooled.
During the CoolSculpting treatment, as the panels go to work in the first few minutes, you will feel a sensation of intense cold. This soon dissipates. You will remain seated comfortably or will lie down during the procedure, which will take one to two hours. Many people spend this time reading, working on their laptop, or simply relaxing.
Recovery from CoolSculpting
The CoolSculpting treatment is completely non-invasive, so you can return to normal activities immediately. You might experience some redness, minor bruising, tingling, or numbness in the treated area, but these symptoms are temporary.
