Dr. David Stoll is a well-known, board-certified dermatologist who is passionate about providing his patients with medically sound, effective, and safe treatments for a wide variety of concerns. This includes reducing those problem areas of fat that may keep you from showing off your curves in the California sunshine.
This Beverly Hills specialist has many reasons for recommending scalpel-free, nonsurgical CoolSculpting to men and women who seek his expertise, and he’s given us his top 10.
1. CoolSculpting treatments are safe and effective
CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared as a safe alternative to surgical fat reduction, and the growing number of individuals who have experienced the treatment — 6 million and counting — can attest to its high rate of patient satisfaction. More than 5,000 people have participated in clinical studies to judge the efficacy and safety of CoolSculpting.
Not every treatment works for everyone, but we’ve also seen amazing CoolSculpting results here at Stoll Dermatology in Beverly Hills.
2. The technology is based on medically reviewed science
Lots of treatments promise to reduce your fat and reshape your curves. Unfortunately, many simply don’t provide results. CoolSculpting is based on the proven science of cryolipolysis and uses advanced medical technology to target and destroy fat cells without damaging the surrounding skin or tissue.
Respected researchers and physicians have published more than 100 peer-reviewed studies regarding the science of CoolSculpting.
3. It works with your body’s natural disposal system to eliminate fat
We don’t vacuum away or melt your fat with CoolSculpting. Rather, we apply the system’s patented gel pad and applicator to the targeted treatment area and let the technology do its work. It provides controlled cooling at a temperature that damages and eventually kills unwanted fat cells under the skin.
Your body’s natural waste system then collects and disposes of the dead cellular material. Fat cells eliminated by CoolSculpting won’t return.
4. The treatment is effective for virtually all problematic, fat-retaining areas
The FDA has cleared CoolSculpting for treating visible fat bulges in the submental (double chin) area, thighs, abdomen, and flanks. We can also use it to treat bra fat, back fat, and what’s commonly known as a banana roll under the buttocks. And it can work wonders on the upper arms.
5. CoolSculpting works to reduce fat in targeted areas and not pounds
While a healthy diet and routine exercise are good for losing weight all over, CoolSculpting targets those problem areas that tend to hold on to stubborn fat, regardless of how much you weigh. You can lose enough pounds to be considered underweight and still retain pockets of fat that CoolSculpting is designed to reduce.
6. Treatments are fast
Depending on the area or areas being treated, CoolSculpting treatments last 35-60 minutes. You’re free to watch a movie, answer texts, or take a quick nap while undergoing a treatment.
7. Discomfort is minimal and well-tolerated by most patients
You can expect to notice a chill in the treatment area, and maybe some tugging or pulling, when the session gets underway. But that’s soon replaced by numbness that alleviates discomfort and fades once the session is complete.
8. There’s no downtime or lengthy recovery period required with CoolSculpting
There are no scalpels, incisions, stitches, or even injections to worry about with CoolSculpting. You may experience some redness and mild tenderness after a treatment, but that generally fades quickly and you’re free to resume normal activities immediately after you leave the office.
9. Results will continue to appear over several weeks
You may notice positive changes in the treatment area within a couple of weeks, but it can take two months for obvious results to appear. That’s because the process relies on your body’s waste disposal system to accomplish your fat reduction goals. The good news is that you may also see continued fat reduction for as long as six months.
10. No special diets, exercise programs, or vitamin supplements are required to maintain results
Because the problem fat cells have been eliminated rather than shrunk, you won’t have to follow a strict dietary regimen to keep your new shape. It is important to note, however, that poor diet and inactivity may lead to overall weight gain.
