Coolsculpting is an FDA-cleared, non-invasive, fat-freezing procedure meant to reduce the appearance of stubborn fat bulges in targeted areas. It is a nonsurgical alternative for people who are not looking to go under the knife or have anesthesia. There is minimal discomfort during the procedure and no downtime afterward. It’s no wonder that Coolsculpting is the #1 body contouring procedure in the USA.
Coolsculpting works because cold targets fat cells. This is done in such a way that surrounding tissue is not damaged. Fat cells eventually freeze, crystalize and die. These frozen, dead fat cells are then eliminated from the body through its natural process.
The length of the procedure is dependent on how many areas are being treated. Each area takes about 35-60 minutes. At Geria Dermatology, we offer Dualsculpting allowing us to treat both sides of the body at the same time, effectively cutting treatment times in half.
The number of treatments needed is dependent on the results desired. Each treatment will result in a 20-25% fat loss in the given area.
The effects of CoolSculpting should start within a few weeks, but the full effect may take 3-4 months.
Coolscultping in the only FDA cleared device used to reduce stubborn fat despite maintaining a healthy diet and exercise. It is approved for these areas: abdomen, love handles, under the chin, inner and outer thighs, upper arms and bra and back fat.
Coolsculpting is for both men and women who have areas of stubborn body fat despite eating healthy and exercising. It is not a cure for being obese or overweight. Book a free consultation to see if this treatment is right for you.
