For patients looking to remove areas of stubborn fat or tighten and smooth their curves, CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive procedure that gently removes fat cells from targeted areas using cooling technology. Read on to find out the answers to some of the questions most frequently asked by patients considering this treatment.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
CoolSculpting uses Cryolipolysis™ technology, which cools the fat cells in the skin, causing these cells to break down while preserving he surrounding tissues. The cells are then removed over time by the body in a natural metabolic process.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
CoolSculpting is approved for the safe and effective removal of unwanted fat from the abdomen, back and flanks (also known as love handles).
Is CoolSculpting Safe?
Yes. CoolSculpting has been safely used around the world to treat thousands of patients for many years including Canada and Europe. In the U.S. CoolSculpting has been approved the Food and Drug Administration, and is also used to provide cooling during certain dermatologic procedures.
What Are The Benefits of CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting offers several advantages over more traditional fat removal and body sculpting methods. Since it is a no-invasive treatment, the risk and scope of complication are greatly reduced. In addition, there is no need for anesthesia or incisions, and no downtime needed for recovery. Most patients return to work or their other daily activities the same day as treatment. Since there are no incisions made, there is no scarring involved.
