CoolSculpting® Is the “Cool” Way to Get Rid of Excess Fat

March 29, 2023

Thousands of American adults have areas of extra body fat that, no matter how long and hard they have tried, can’t get rid of. There’s a solution for you: CoolSculpting®. It’s a non-invasive, fat-freezing procedure that is scientifically proven to reduce stubborn fat deposits.

With cutting-edge technology and innovative techniques, the professionals at the office of Dermatology for the Family are experts at CoolSculpting and other procedures that can effectively address some of your most challenging skin and body issues. In addition to our superior, comprehensive care, we have a welcoming, patient-focused environment in which each individual will feel at ease.

Simple and painless, CoolSculpting® is FDA-cleared to treat nine 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 the upper arms. 

When undergoing the CoolSculpting procedure, a gel pad and a dedicated applicator are positioned on the “problem area.” They will chill the cells of fat and promote the natural elimination of these cells. Your own body then metabolizes the fat. The technology enables precise, controlled cooling that affects only the targeted fat cells, ensuring that no surrounding tissue or cells are influenced or damaged. Once the CoolSculpting system freezes the fat cells, they won’t reappear.

A CoolSculpting session lasts one to several hours. The time dependents on the scope of the area or areas being treated. It’s important to note that CoolSculpting is designed for individuals who are healthy and fit but want to reduce fat in areas of their bodies that have reacted poorly to exercise and diet weight-loss regimes. It’s not for people who want to lose an extensive amount of weight or are obese. Rather, it focuses on specific, limited areas.
