Are you looking for a way to banish stubborn fat without surgery? CoolSculpting® may be the perfect solution! CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, FDA-cleared treatment that is often used as an alternative to liposuction to help reduce fat in problem areas like your abdomen, love handles, and back. This revolutionary technology uses controlled cooling to target and freeze fat cells that are then metabolized by your body.
At Cascade Eye & Skin Centers, we are devoted to helping our patients achieve noticeable and long-lasting results. So, if you are struggling with stubborn fat and are interested in reducing its appearance, CoolSculpting may be an excellent option.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
This non-invasive procedure works by freezing and eliminating unwanted fat cells. Fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than other cells, allowing surrounding tissues to remain unaffected.
CoolSculpting treatment works by delivering precise cooling to a targeted area, which causes the crystallization of fat cells.. Over time, the body will naturally process these dead fat cells and eliminate them.
CoolSculpting Treatment Areas
CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss treatment but rather a fat-loss solution that may be used in the following areas:
- Under the jawline
- Under the chin
- The upper arms
- Back far
- Bra fat
- Love handles
- Under the buttocks
Unlike other fat reduction procedures, CoolSculpting does not require incisions or anesthesia and is generally considered safe.
Several sessions may be necessary to achieve the desired results. Patients may notice changes in their appearance in as little as three weeks. However, the most dramatic results typically occur after two months.
What to Expect During a CoolSculpting Treatment
Before considering CoolSculpting, it is crucial to understand the procedure and what you can expect during treatment. At Cascade Eye & Skin Centers, this procedure will start with a consultation. During your consultation, you’ll discuss the areas you want to treat and your body contouring goals. You can also ask any questions you may have about the treatment. Our providers will also assess your candidacy for the procedure and will assist you in developing a personalized treatment plan.
After it is determined you are ready for treatment, your provider will outline the targeted treatment area to get more precise results. A gel pad will be used to protect the skin, and a cooling applicator will be applied to any area you wish to target.
As you begin treatment, you will feel a bit of pressure and intense cold for the first few minutes before the area becomes numb. Each CoolSculpting treatment typically takes between 35-75 minutes, depending on the area treated, and most patients find the procedure relatively painless.
After treatment, the applicator(s) and gel pad are removed, and the treated area is massaged for 2 minutes to help break up the fat cells. CoolSculpting has little to no downtime, and most patients are able to return to their daily activities after treatment.
