Painlessly Re-Sculpt Your Body

painlessly-resculpt-your-bodyFor years individuals with weight problems have been praying for the day when liposuction wouldn’t be the same invasive procedure it’s known to be. Luckily those prayers have been answered by the Renowned Harvard University scientists, Dieter Manstein, MD and R. Rox Anderson, MD. Ironically they found through research that some children got dimples due to eating popsicles. The idea that cold can selectively affect and eliminate fat cells without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue was the insight behind Cryolipolysis, the proven science on which the CoolSculpting procedure is based.

So what is CoolSculpting exactly?

CoolSculpting is the only non-surgical body contouring treatment that freezes and eliminates stubborn fat from the body. As mentioned previously it uses technology that is controlled cooling (Cryolipolysis) to target and kill only these fat cells. The technology extracts energy or heat from the tissue to cool fat cells and trigger a programmed cell death. In the weeks to follow, these fat cells are naturally eliminated from the body, resulting in long-term results due to that fact that the cells are now permanently gone as opposed to shrank. There are no needles, no special diets and no downtime. It is FDA cleared; safe, proven results without surgery or invasive procedures and only licensed medical professionals provide treatments.

How does it work?

One CoolSculpting treatment takes one hour per area treated.  It is as simple as laying down while they apply the piece of equipment to the local area. It is common to feel a suction sensation on the skin and then a cooling sensation that will typically go numb, other than that it is virtually painless. One area is about the size of a hand. Therefore, each “love-handle” would be considered one area, and the lower abdomen is typically considered two areas.  It is possible to treat more than one area at a single office visit, but only one area at a time.

To treat two areas takes just over two hours.  For many patients, a second treatment in the same area may be beneficial since CoolSculpting removes about 25% of the fat cells per treatment.  The fat cells that are damaged by the treatment are frozen and later absorbed by the body’s own metabolic process and are gone permanently.

Marie Gordan, practice administrator of RevitaLife Anti-Aging Center in Sarasota states, “I’ve been doing noninvasive aesthetic procedures for body contouring and fat reduction for about 8 years. Coolsculpting is by far the best on the market.  It’s a great option for when diet and exercise won’t get rid of that problem area.”

Some results can be appreciated in as early as 3 weeks, typical results take about 3-4 months to be fully realized, and therefore many patients schedule second treatments at that time. Results may vary from patient to patient but the overall satisfaction has been truly impressive. Thai Chau, Preceptor Physician Assistant of Ideal Image of Sarasota states, “The CoolSculpting procedure is quite comfortable and can permanently eliminate fat with no downtime.  It’s time to feel good about yourself again and CoolSculpting is an easy answer for your most stubborn areas of fat.”

CoolSculpting has created a new avenue for individuals to lose weight without going through the motions of discouragement when it comes difficulties of losing weight. It has great potential to give people the extra push they need, in order to keep the weight off. Due to the fact that treatments will have maximal effect by 3 months, to know whether or not additional treatments are needed will depend on the clinical exam provided by the practitioner. The key component to understand is once the fat is removed, it is gone for life. It is up to the patient to keep it off.
