What is CoolSculpting®?
The FDA-approved CoolSculpting® technology was developed by leading researchers at Harvard and Massachusetts General Hospital, offering patients an extremely safe, yet effective, body contouring option. CoolSculpting® works by cooling and crystalizing fat cells. Because fatty tissue freezes faster than other tissues, such as skin and nerves, the system uses an extremely low temperature that isolates and kills only fat cells. The cooling technology is administered through smooth paddles, and treatment is so comfortable that many patients enjoy reading a book or taking a nap while they wait. In the weeks following your procedure, you can benefit from CoolSculpting®'s slimming effects as the treated cells die and are naturally flushed from your body.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Ideal candidates for CoolSculpting® should be in good health and within 20 pounds of their desired target weight. CoolSculpting® is not intended as a weight loss treatment, but is intended for patients who want to slim and tone their midsection, thighs, or other areas of the body. During your consultation, Dr. Smart will perform a complete evaluation and discuss your health and aesthetic goals. It is important to accurately report your health history and also have a realistic understanding of the outcome of your treatment. Dr. Smart offers a number of body sculpting procedures, such as liposuction and tummy tuck, and may recommend another treatment that is more appropriate to help you achieve your cosmetic goals.
CoolSculpting® is a simple procedure with little to no discomfort. During your appointment, the CoolSculpting® machine will be applied to the treatment area, and produce a very cold sensation. After about ten minutes, you should adjust to the temperature and can relax with your Smartphone, watch a movie, or just doze off. A session takes about an hour and requires no downtime – in fact, patients can immediately return to everyday activities, including exercise. Side effects are minimal, and can include tingling, numbness, mild swelling, or bruising in the treatment area. These symptoms usually fade within a few days.
In the weeks following your procedure, you will notice that your treatment area gradually tones and tightens as your body flushes out the frozen fat cells. Results should be most apparent about 2-3 months after your office visit. Some patients choose to schedule a second treatment session to achieve more dramatic results, or to target another area of the body. With proper diet and exercise, CoolSculpting® treatment results can last for years or even decades.
