Conveniently Located to Serve Bergen County and all of North Jersey
At Geria Dermatology in Bergen County, NJ, we offer CoolSculpting for people who are struggling to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat on their body using traditional methods of fat reduction. If dieting and exercise have not done the trick, it may be time to consider CoolSculpting non-surgical body contouring to help you reach your body goals.
What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting eliminates stubborn fat safely and effectively, without surgery or downtime. This fat reduction treatment is the only FDA-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate diet- and exercise-resistant fat. CoolSculpting results are proven, noticeable, and lasting, so you’ll look and feel great from every angle.
Non-Surgical Jawline Contouring
CoolSculpting makes non-surgical contouring possible for patients who want to reduce excess fat in a number of areas, including the chin. This treatment can effectively redefine the contours of the lower face for a more sculpted and defined profile.
A double chin is a layer of excess fat underneath your chin (submental fat) caused by weight gain, genetics, or various lifestyle factors. Even patients who do not struggle with obesity may have a double chin. This issue can cause embarrassment and self- consciousness, and it can make patients look more out of shape than they actually are.
There are many different ways to address this problem, including surgical interventions like liposuction. However, these procedures can necessitate frustrating downtime.
Thankfully, CoolSculpting is now available for patients who want a non-invasive way of getting rid of their double chins and achieving contoured jawlines. With the help of this innovative cryolipolysis technique, non-surgical jawline contouring is possible. There are no scalpels, incisions, or injections of any kind.
How Does CoolSculpting Freeze Away Fat?
Freeze away fat? It comes down to science. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
What To Expect from Your CoolSculpting Treatment
You can reshape your body! We will develop a customized CoolSculpting treatment plan that addresses your problem areas. Additional sessions at Geria Dermatology in Bergen County, NJ may further enhance your results. Your individualized treatment plan will be tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
It’s easy to sit back, relax and say goodbye to stubborn fat. After we select the area(s) to be treated, the device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied. During your procedure, you may choose to read, check email, or even take a nap.
The CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is completely non-surgical, so you can typically return to work and normal activities immediately.
When Will I See the Results of My CoolSculpting?
You will like what you see. In the weeks and months following your procedure, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.
How It Works
Years ago, scientists at Harvard University observed that some children who ate popsicles got dimples in their cheeks. The scientists—Dieter Manstein, MD and R. Rox Anderson, MD— realized that the popsicles were freezing and eliminating small pockets of fat cells.
The idea that cold can target fat cells—without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue— was the insight behind cryolipolysis,the proven science on which the CoolSculpting procedure is based.
COOLSCULPTING FREEZES AND ELIMINATES STUBBORN FAT
The CoolSculpting procedure safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. Treated fat cells are crystalized (frozen), then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
FAT ELIMINATION AFTER THE COOLSCULPTING PROCEDURE
Fat cells that are frozen during the CoolSculpting procedure gradually die off and leave the body through the body’s natural elimination process. That’s why results are long-term. Untreated areas will have no change in fat cells.
