We all have stubborn fat on our bodies that won’t disappear, no matter how much we exercise or how healthy we eat. As frustrating as it is, it is a normal part of the aging process.
Thanks to advances in aesthetic technology, stubborn fat is not something we have to live with. In fact, modern advances in body sculpting treatments make it possible to remove fat without any needles, anesthetics or downtime. If you’re looking for an effective and safe way to get rid of trouble spots, CoolSculpting® might be for you.
What Is It?
CoolSculpting® technology uses controlled cooling to target and kill fat cells. In the weeks following the procedure, the body naturally processes the fat and eliminates the dead cells. CoolSculpting® can be used to eliminate fat on the abdomen, flanks, back, thighs, arms and chin.
How It Works
For most practices, patients will come in to meet with the clinical staff for a consultation. During that time, the provider will evaluate the patients’ body type, and how many treatments are necessary to help them reach their goals. Once a treatment plan is established, the patient will come in for their first procedure. This process involves the application of a CoolSculpting® hand piece, which suctions the fat and brings the area to the targeted cooling temperature. After the procedure, the frozen fat cells slowly die and are expelled through the body’s natural processes.
CoolSculpting® treatments take roughly an hour per handpiece, and full results can be expected to be seen about two months after treatment. That’s about how long it takes for the body to thoroughly dispose of the newly damaged fat cells. Once the cells are treated, they are gone for good.
Our patients at Cosmetic Enhancement Center of New England find the procedure to be safe, comfortable, and most of all, effective. In fact, 95 percent of patients who have had CoolSculpting® done say they are very happy with the results.
It even makes it more difficult, though not impossible, to regain fat in the same area that was treated. However, CoolSculpting® is not a weight-loss treatment and should be used only when you’re already at a healthy, stable weight.
