CoolSculpting is a fat-freezing procedure. The treatment works best on stubborn pockets of fat or unwanted bulges that are resistant to diet and exercise. Every treatment is customized to the unique needs and contours of the patient. Working with the best CoolSculpting provider in Philly is essential to creating the best custom treatment plan for your needs.
Fat-freezing works by safely cooling a specific area of fat cells without affecting the surrounding tissues. Controlled cooling results in the fat cells dying and being flushed by the body over three months. Each treatment can be expected to eliminate 20-25% of the fat in an area. Patients typically require 2 or more treatments to meet their goals.
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical fat reduction technique that uses controlled freezing to eliminate stubborn fat. No general or topical anesthesia or pain medication is required. There is no downtime and you may resume normal exercise and activity immediately after treatment.
Results will gradually develop over 2 to 4 months after treatment. During this time, your body gradually removes approximately 20-25% of the fat from the treatment area. Target areas can be re-treated if necessary in the future.
First, we will clean the skin and apply a gel pad to protect it from the cold temperatures. Then the applicator is applied to suction the tissue into the cooling cup. Finally, once the patient is comfortable we will initiate the cooling.
The CoolSculpting procedure takes approximately 35 minutes. After the cycle is finished the applicator is removed and we massage the area to initiate the flushing of fat cells. The patient has no restrictions after the procedure and there is no downtime.
FDA-approved, CoolSculpting is considered a safe alternative to surgery for treating hard-to-treat bulges. Some of the common side effects include temporary:
Following the procedure, a gradual reduction in the thickness of the fat layer may take place. As early as three weeks after CoolSculpting, you may begin to see changes. More dramatic results begin showing after two to three months. Your body will continue to expel the fat cells from your body for approximately four months after your procedure.
Fat-freezing can also be a great motivator for patients who recently started dieting. Patients tend to be more motivated to continue towards their appearance goals when they can see their bodies changing.
