Proven Results Without Surgery
Renowned Harvard University scientists, Dieter Manstein, MD and R. Rox Anderson, MD, observed that some children got dimples due to eating popsicles. The idea that cold can selectively affect and eliminate fat cells without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue was the insight behind Cryolipolysis®, the proven science on which the CoolSculpting procedure is based.
What is CoolSculpting?
- Safe and effective
The idea that cold can selectively affect fat led to the innovative cooling process developed by scientists at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School. CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
the ideal Coolsculpting patient
The ideal patient is someone who has excess fat around abdomen, flanks, chest, arms and inner/outer thighs.
You will feel a sense of coolness for the first minute. After that, the treated area goes numb. You may feel a little discomfort at the start, but it will go away soon after treatment has begun. Treatment can last from 1-6 hours depending on the number of areas that they patient would like treated.
will i need more than one treatment?
The number of treatments is determined by how many problematic areas you would like treated. Dr. Epstein keeps your personal goals in mind to help optimize results.
HOW THE COOLSCULPTING PROCEDURE FREEZES FAT CELLS
- Many of us have stubborn fat despite diet and exercise.
- CoolSculpting technology uses controlled cooling (Cryolipolysis) to target and kill only these fat cells.
- In the weeks to follow, these fat cells are naturally eliminated from the body.
- CoolSculpting results are long-term, as treated fat cells are gone for good.
when will i see results? Are they permanent?
Your final results will not be visible until 2 months after treatment. The results attained from CoolSculpting are permanent. CoolSculpting is completely non-surgical, so you can return to normal activities immediately. Patients often return to work on the same day after their treatment is completed.
