Are you thinking of receiving a cosmetic procedure to improve your appearance? Do you have that stubborn area of fat that just will not budge no matter how well you eat and how hard you work in the gym? A procedure may be right for you. But with so many different procedures available, which one will work best? Non-invasive? Traditional procedure? Look no further for the cosmetic procedure that will effectively reduce your trouble areas and improve your confidence in a fast, effective way. That answer is CoolSculpting: the world’s #1 non-invasive fat-reduction procedure.

What is CoolSculpting?
It isn’t a surgery, CoolSculpting is a noninvasive, innovative way to contour your body by freezing unwanted fat away with no surgery, scalpels or downtime.

There have been more than 3.5 million CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide, letting people everywhere get a better, more confident view of themselves thanks to the one of a kind CoolSculpting procedure.

It is a new kind of procedure, and a new and improved technology that is highly praised in the medical field for its innovative techniques. Dr. Neil Sadick, professor at Weil Cornell Medical College, said the procedure has “the most proven technology.” It was created by two Harvard doctors, and as of last month, it was cleared by the FDA for treating a patient’s thighs, love handles and belly.

What is the procedure like?
The process of CoolSculpting feels cool like ice because this device is quite literally freezing the fat cells directly below it. Once they’re frozen, the fat cells drain naturally from the body. It can take 6 to 12 weeks to see the results, but a patient can lose half an inch from his or her waistline after just one one-hour treatment. You can treat the same area multiple times and you can return to normal activities just minutes after the procedure, as it requires no downtime and is noninvasive.

This procedure may not be for you if you have a great deal of fat left to lose, and people who need to lose great amounts of fat may want to consider a more invasive procedure such as liposuction or other more traditional surgeries. “These techniques are not substitutes for liposuction. They’re not for people that have large amounts of fat that needs to be removed,” Sadick said.

For CoolSculpting to work effectively, it must be combined with a well-balanced diet and regular exercise. As this is not only beneficial to your overall health to maintain a healthy diet and rigorous exercise routine, it can also help reduce the appearance of fat cells. That is why pairing these lifestyle choices with CoolSculpting will not only help target any stubborn areas, it will also freeze off the fat cells for good, which can be the biggest motivator of all to keep going without the invasive methods of traditional surgery.

Our office now offers the newest in cutting edge technology, with CoolMini and Cool Advantage. The innovative designers of CoolSculpting have designed a mini-adaptor to the process. This new device, the CoolMini applicator, effectively addresses the pockets of fat on the neck and under the chin and in other smaller problem areas that are known as submental fat.

CoolAdvantage uses a lower temperature plus a newly designed shape to decrease treatment time from 60 minutes to just 35 minutes. And not only is time reduced and more surface reached, but a recent clinical study found comfort level increased by 45%, making for a better patient experience.

If you are looking to get rid of that last area of fat, want to tone your body, or rid your body of the final fat cells after a weight loss to get that last push of inspiration, call your doctor to discuss your options in regards to CoolSculpting.
