Diet and exercise are sometimes not always enough to attain the smooth, sculpted body contour you may be looking for. Stubborn pockets of fat that settle around the hips, thighs, and midsection often may not respond to your weight loss efforts the way you want them to. A body contouring procedure can help you create a smoother profile, but who has time for surgery? Now, you can get the sleeker body contour you are craving with an innovative, non-surgical procedure known as CoolSculpting®. *
CoolSculpting® is a revolutionary body contouring procedure that uses targeted cooling to freeze and destroy fat cells. The non-invasive procedure has been approved as a body contouring device by the FDA and offers noticeable results, sometimes in as little as one treatment session. Individual results vary, but results are often gradual and subtle, so you can look like you sweated it out at the gym, rather than undergoing a cosmetic procedure.*
Who is this procedure for?
CoolSculpting® is recommended for men and women who have achieved a healthy weight, but continue to be plagued by isolated fat deposits that mar their overall body contour. The procedure is non-invasive, which makes it a good option for patients that are not good candidates for surgery. CoolSculpting® can treat the following problem areas:*
- Waistline and abdomen
- Inner and outer thighs
- Upper and lower back
- Hips and thighs
- Beneath the chin (“double chin”)
How does it work?
At Dermacare of San Diego, we perform CoolSculpting® procedures right in our office on an outpatient basis. Anesthesia is typically not required for this procedure and most patients report little or no discomfort during treatment. In fact, some patients read and answer emails or even nap during the procedure.*
CoolSculpting® involves the use of a handheld device containing two cooling panels. Skin is pulled between the panels, so that targeted cooling can be delivered beneath the skin’s surface to the adipose tissue below. Fat cells are frozen and destroyed, so the body can remove the cells gradually through natural processes.*
What results can I expect?
Individual results vary. CoolSculpting® results develop over time, with many patients seeing preliminary results in approximately three weeks and full results in one to three months as your body continues to remove the treated fat cells. Some patients achieve full results in just one single treatment session, while others might need multiple sessions for optimal results. Because fat cells the fat cells are expected to leave the body, results of CoolSculpting® should be long-lasting. However, if you gain weight after the procedure, other fat cells could expand and require subsequent treatment.*
