CoolSculpting® for Stubborn Fat
No matter how toned your muscles are, if the fatty cushion above them is too thick, you cannot see your muscles’ true definition. But reducing stubborn belly fat can sometimes be impossible. The same can be said for fat in other areas of your body. With CoolSculpting®, cryolipolysis technology is used to freeze fat cells, which disrupts the cell membranes, breaking them down for the lymphatic system to naturally flush them out. It is the perfect procedure for spot-treating stubborn fat from specific areas of the body.
Am I a Candidate for CoolSculpting® and How Does it Work?
Fat cells freeze at a temperature higher than surrounding tissues, so precise cooling technology can crystallize the cell membranes without disrupting nearby tissues. CoolSculpting® delivers controlled cooling to your problem fat areas via an applicator—no incisions required. The fat freezes during treatment and the lymphatic system flush these cells away naturally over the next 12-16 weeks.
Candidates for this treatment will have little pockets of fat that resist all their efforts in the gym and with diet. CoolSculpting® is FDA-cleared for treatment of fat in the lower abdomen, middle and upper back, around the bra line, double chins, inner and outer thighs, upper arms, flanks, and underneath the buttocks (also known as the banana roll).
