The Amazing Benefits of CoolSculpting®


slide-1

Noninvasive Treatments


CoolSculpting® is the ideal procedure for patients looking to treat stubborn fat who don’t want to undergo an invasive procedure such as liposuction. CoolSculpting® delivers controlled cooling into the fat cells to destroy them, and the body naturally absorbs the damaged tissue. This process is achieved without using a single needle or incision. As a noninvasive treatment, CoolSculpting® doesn’t require the use of an anesthetic and won’t result in any scarring.

Zero Recovery Time


Many surgical fat removal procedures will result in lengthy recovery periods that can put you out of commission for several days or weeks. Since CoolSculpting® doesn’t utilize anesthesia, patients won’t require that initial day or two recovery period while they rebound from the anesthetic. Additionally, you won’t have to wait while incisions heal or limit your activities to prevent fluid buildup. Patients who choose CoolSculpting® for fat removal can immediately resume their regular activities.

Safe and Effective Fat Removal


CoolSculpting® has been FDA approved and is a safe fat removal process. The freezing process is directed specifically to target fat cells, preserving the integrity of the surrounding tissue. CoolSculpting® has a low risk of developing complications during and post-treatment. Each treatment is accompanied by a cooling sensation of the skin, and there is minimal discomfort during the procedure and post-treatment, with no downtime.

Customizable Treatment Plans


CoolSculpting® treatments are tailored to each patient to provide results that best highlight and enhance your body. CoolSculpting® can be utilized to treat a wide variety of areas, including the abdomen, inner thighs, outer thighs, flanks, back rolls, under the buttocks, and under the chin. Dr. Thompson customizes each CoolSculpting® procedure to ensure the most effective fat removal for the best results that fit your body and your goals. Multiple areas may be treated at the same appointment.

Your CoolSculpting® Treatment


During your initial consultation, Dr. Thompson will evaluate your treatment areas and will develop your custom-tailored treatment to transformation plan based on your body type and the results you desire.

Procedure


One

  • CoolSculpting® uses science, not surgery, to treat your stubborn fat deposits. Fat freezes at a higher temperature than other body tissues, making it more susceptible to freezing while preserving the surrounding tissue.

Two

  • Controlled cooling is directed into the adipose tissue, gently freezing the fat cells underneath the skin.

Three

  • The targeted fat cells crystallize and are destroyed.

Four

  • Over time, your body naturally rids itself of the frozen cells, which leaves a slimmer and more sculpted appearance.

Many patients use this time to read, check email, watch a movie, or even sleep.
Yes. The CoolAdvantage™ applicator system offers three interchangeable heads to treat certain areas on the body, specifically the abdomen, flanks, and inner thighs. Compared to its earlier design, this new applicator cuts the treatment time nearly in half, covers more of the area being treated, and is more comfortable for the patients.
The fat cells that are frozen during your CoolSculpting® treatment will die. Your body absorbs the dead cells and naturally eliminates them. This process permanently treats the stubborn fat in your problem areas. Once removed, these fat cells do not return.
Some patients notice an immediate change following their CoolSculpting® treatment; however, the fat absorption process can take several weeks. Many patients begin to see noticeable results about four to six weeks after their treatment, but some patients may require a second treatment to achieve the results they desire. CoolSculpting® permanently eliminates excess fat. Results are long lasting when patients maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Some patients may feel some minor discomfort initially in the form of pressure, tugging, pinching, numbness, and intense cold. However, this feeling usually dissipates after the first few minutes of treatment. Most patients find CoolSculpting® treatment so comfortable that they can read, watch videos, use their phones, or even nap during their treatment.
CoolSculpting® has a low risk of complications. However, some patients do experience minor side effects. Aside from the minimal discomfort that may be experienced during treatment, typical side effects following the procedure include numbness, redness, swelling, minor bruising, tingling, and stinging. These side effects are mild and generally only last several hours. It should be noted that if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria, CoolSculpting® is not the right treatment for you.
While you don’t need to take supplements or alter your lifestyle to achieve your results, most patients find that a healthy lifestyle that includes diet and exercise helps them maintain the quality of their results. CoolSculpting® provides many patients with a new outlook on their life and body, and they commit to maintaining their appearance following treatment. However, if you do gain weight, fat is distributed throughout your body.
