The “Cool” Way to get Rid of Excess Fat: CoolSculpting®

May 14, 2020

Are you one of thousands of people who have “trouble spots” on your body – pockets of excess fat you can’t seem to get rid of no matter how hard you try? There’s a solution for you: CoolSculpting® — a non-invasive, fat-freezing procedure that is scientifically proven to reduce stubborn fat deposits.

With cutting-edge technology and innovative techniques, our professionals at the office of Dermatology for the Family are experts at CoolSculpting and other procedures that can effectively address some of your most problematic skin and body issues.

Simple and painless, CoolSculpting® is FDA-cleared to treat nine different areas of the body: visible bulges under the chin and jawline areas, thighs, abdomen and flanks, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks, and upper arms. During the procedure, a gel pad and a specialized applicator is placed on your problem area to chill the fat cells and stimulate the natural removal of these cells. Your own body then metabolizes the fat. The technology enables precise, controlled cooling that affects only fat cells on your body, ensuring that no surrounding tissue or cells are affected or damaged. Once the CoolSculpting system freezes the fat cells, they will not reappear.

Each CoolSculpting treatment can last anywhere from one to several hours, depending on the size of the area(s) being treated. It’s important to note that CoolSculpting is designed for individuals who are healthy and fit, but who want to reduce fat in areas of their body that have not responded well to diet or exercise; it is not intended for extensive weight loss, nor does it address problems with obesity.

The office of Dermatology for the Family is your go-to destination for safe and effective CoolSculpting and for other procedures designed to help you look and feel your best. For more information on our office and the many services that we provide, give us a call today.
