What’s more frustrating than following a well-balanced diet and hitting the gym obediently every morning for a 6 a.m. aerobics class only to find that your love handles just aren’t budging? Love handles, muffin tops, bat wings and the dreaded “mommy pooch” are just a few examples of the most common problem areas when it comes to unwanted body fat.
At Stoll Dermatology, Dr. David Stoll offers CoolSculpting to address this very problem. CoolSculpting is a non-invasive (i.e., no incisions, injections or surgeries) body sculpting procedure that can permanently remove unwanted fat from your most problematic areas.
How doesCoolSculpting work?
A noninvasive and speedy (35–60-minute sessions, depending on your treatment area) procedure that permanently removes unwanted fat? It sounds too good to be true, but CoolSculpting is the real deal.
Based on the science of cryolipolysis, the CoolSculpting device freezes your fat cells (without harming your skin). Because the frozen cells are now damaged cells, your body’s lymphatic system flushes out the damaged fat cells, and once they are flushed out, the fat loss becomes permanent. Because of this, the fat loss isn’t immediate; it does take time for your body to flush out those cells. You may notice some results about three weeks after your treatment, but the most-impressive results will be visible around the two-month mark.
More than 5,000 patients (and over a whopping 6 million procedures!) confirm that CoolSculpting is efficient and effective in spot-reducing body fat.
CoolSculpting is non-invasive, but does it hurt?
Freezing fat cells? Does that hurt? Although the idea of freezing any part of your body sounds downright cold, the CoolSculpting device has built-in sensors to ensure that the devices don’t get too cold. That said, you may experience stinging, numbness or tenderness after your session. Rest assured; your skin will not be harmed, and these side effects often dissipate within a few hours.
Unlike more invasive fat reduction treatments, you’ll be able to return to work or school immediately after your treatments.
What are the most common treatment areas?
The good news is that CoolSculpting treatments are FDA-approved to treat many of the most frustrating areas, including:
- The submental area, also referred to as a “double chin”
- The area under the buttocks, also referred to as a “banana roll”
- Inner and outer thighs
- Abdomen, including the lower abdomen
- Upper arm, also referred to as “bat wings”
- Bra bulges
- Back fat
- Flank, also referred to as “love handles”
Have more than one problematic area? No worries; you can treat more than one area!
Note: While CoolSculpting is cleared to treat the above areas, it is not a weight loss tool. CoolSculpting does not treat obesity; rather, CoolSculpting is ideal for candidates who are already at their goal weight, but who are simply struggling with stubborn pockets of fat that do not respond to diet or exercise.
