For many people, healthy eating and exercise alone aren't always enough to get rid of stubborn fat bulges. Fortunately, Facial Aesthetics offers patients a non-invasive treatment to target those stubborn fat pockets and keep them away for good. CoolSculpting is a clinically proven, FDA-approved, non-surgical contouring treatment that helps you achieve your desired results without surgery or downtime.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a revolutionary procedure that uses cryolipolysis, a unique technology that uses controlled cooling to freeze stubborn fat cells, which are then naturally eliminated from your body over the course of 2 to 3 months. The cooling of adipose tissue to induce lipolysis allows the fat cells to break down without causing damage to other tissues.
Each area that you wish to get treatment on takes about 45 minutes to an hour. The procedure is non-invasive, there is no downtime, and minimal discomfort, which means regular activity can be resumed immediately following treatment.
The CoolSculpting fat-freezing procedure is FDA-cleared and has been found to be a safe and effective method of contouring the body through targeting and freezing away unwanted fat cells beneath the skin's surface. Results from the procedure are lasting because fat cells that have been eliminated do not regenerate. Common areas for CoolSculpting are: stomach, love-handles, inner and outer thighs, under the chin, under the buttocks, and the arms.
The CoolSculpting Procedure
Once you have determined which areas you wish to treat, the CoolSculpting device is placed on the area and uses a vacuum suction between 2 specialized cooling panels. Once the device is activated, the panels will deliver an intense cold to the targeted fat. The pressure from the tissue being drawn into the applicator may cause mild sensations of tugging, pulling, or pinching. After about 5 to 10 minutes of having the cold applied to the cells, patients will start to experience numbness in the area that is being treated.
CoolAdvantageTM Also Offered
Facial Aesthetics also offers patients the option of utilizing the CoolAdvantageTM applicator. This revolutionary system allows for a more versatile treatment option in areas with pinchable fat using a medium vacuum cup. This option delivers a shorter treatment time, increased comfort, and the ability to provide more treatment to a larger area. As with CoolSculpting, CoolAdvantageTM is non-invasive and you may resume your daily activities immediately. Though not common, some patients may experience tenderness, numbness, tingling, minor bruising, redness, skin sensitiviy, or whitening of the skin in the area treated. All symptoms are temporary and should subside within a couple of weeks.
