What is CoolSculpting®?
Sometimes the body stubbornly clings on to pockets of fat despite dedicated exercise regimens and healthy eating habits. CoolSculpting® body contouring is a nonsurgical way to reduce these troublesome areas of fat on nine specific areas of the body: the chin and jawline, thighs, stomach and flanks, under the buttocks, upper arms, and areas of bra or back fat.
How Does CoolSculpting® Work?
CoolSculpting® works using a technology called cryolipolysis which, simply put, is a method of freezing fat. This technology safely and painlessly freezes and kills the body’s fat cells. This fat-freezing technology leads to long-term results — once frozen, your body will naturally eliminate the dead cells.
Who is CoolSculpting® For?
When you are close to your ideal body weight, CoolSculpting® is an excellent way to reduce stubborn fat pockets. In fact, CoolSculpting® is the #1 nonsurgical fat reduction treatment used by doctors.
Does CoolSculpting® Hurt?
During your procedure you may feel some pulling, tugging, pinching, intense cold, stinging, tingling, aching, and mild cramping at the treatment site. CoolSculpting® is a nonsurgical procedure, making it an excellent alternative to cosmetic surgery.
CoolSculpting® Safety Information
