Coolsculpting™

Approved by the FDA in September of 2010, CoolSculpting™ is a non-invasive procedure that can reduce the fat in targeted areas of the body such as the stomach, flanks and back. Manufactured by ZELTIQ™, CoolSculpting™ uses advanced cooling technology to eliminate fat cells without the use of drugs, chemicals, needles or surgical incisions.

The procedure takes about 1 to 2 hours, depending on the number of areas being treated. During the procedure, controlled cold temperature is applied to the skin through a special applicator with cooling panels, which freezes fat cells under the skin. These treated cells are then gradually eliminated from your body through normal metabolic processes. Results from the treatment can be seen in about 2 to 3 months, and are permanent as long as the patient maintains his or her weight with diet and excercise.

Becuase CoolSculpting™ is non-invasive, anethesia or pain medication is not necessary, and there is no down time. Any side effects are minamal and can include minor bruising, redness and numbness, all of which are temporary. The CoolSculpting™ procedure is most ideal for patients who have achieved their ideal weight, but want to target small areas of stubborn fat that have resisted excercise and diet.
