With the help of advanced cooling technology, your body can naturally eliminate its own fat cells.
CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive, FDA-approved procedure that reduces fat through an intense cooling process. Areas that collect stubborn pockets of fat, such as the flanks, abdomen and back, can be treated with the non-surgical cooling device, causing the excess fat cells to be filtered out by the body’s natural processes. This can result improved contour and less fat without the need for surgery or long recovery times. CoolSculpting® can be an effective and safe fat-eliminating alternative to liposuction, helping patients to reduce moderate areas of excess fat.
How is the CoolSculpting® Procedure Performed?
During your consultation with Dr. Carrie Houssock, you will establish the areas of excess fat to be targeted for treatment. She will answer all of your questions and determine whether CoolSculpting® is the right option for your needs. Typically, the procedure takes only one to two hours to complete, but it ultimately depends on the size of the area to be treated. If you prefer to be somewhat aggressive with the contouring in one session, several areas over 3-4 hours can also be treated. A second session may be recommended to provide the best result.
At the time of your procedure, you will sit or lie down, and a suctioning device will be placed on your targeted area. Through the cooling process, called cryolipolysis, your fat is pulled between two panels, which may result in a sensation of tugging and coldness. Soon, any minor discomfort will subside as the area begins to numb. The advanced technology gently cools your lipids and fat cells to the point of crystallization, allowing your body to eventually break them down and eliminate them through natural processes.
