CoolSculpting is a relatively new body contouring modality but has become a popular option since it was introduced. Both plastic surgeons and patients have found it an effective non-surgical technique to eliminate some stubborn fat deposits. The abdomen is one of the most fat-prone areas in the body and many men and women who want to address this aesthetic concern wonder if this procedure that gently freezes fat to destroy it will work. The answer is yes – if you are the right candidate.
Of course, conventional laser liposuction can also work to remove excess fat deposits, but it is minimally-invasive, meaning that there are small incisions involved. The revolutionary CoolSculpting procedure is non-invasive and provides great results with little or no downtime. It is FDA-cleared, safe and effective.
The treatment is based on Cryolipolysis, the non-surgical breaking down of fat cells to reduce body fat without damage to other tissues. A specially designed cooling applicator is placed on the treatment site to precisely target the fat deposits and controlled cooling is applied. The frozen fat is then eliminated through the body’s natural metabolic processes.
The exclusive benefits of this non-invasive procedure include
- No knives and suction hoses
- No needles or anesthetic
- No surgical incisions or scars
- No bruising or soreness
- No damage adjacent tissue
