Get Rid of Stubborn Fat With CoolSculpting
Body contouring just got easier
Many men and women have unwanted fat in particular problem areas. Bulges of fat in the back, abdomen, thighs, hips, and even under the chin, can seem impossible to get rid of with diet and exercise alone. If you’ve already improved your figure with diet and exercise and you’re not interested in a surgical procedure, we have good news for you. There is a new way to accomplish your fat reduction goals without surgery: CoolSculpting®. This revolutionary new treatment is now available at Gwinnett Dermatology.
What is CoolSculpting?
The CoolSculpting procedure eliminates stubborn fat safely and effectively, without surgery, anesthesia or downtime. This fat reduction treatment is the only FDA-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate diet- and exercise-resistant fat. CoolSculpting results are proven, noticeable, and lasting, so you’ll look and feel great from every angle.
CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively get rid of stubborn fat that does not respond to diet and exercise. This non-surgical fat reduction procedure freezes away fat by targeting the fat cells underneath the skin. It does not harm the skin or other tissue and acts strictly on fat cells. Once the fat cells are treated, they are gradually eliminated through your body’s own metabolic processes, reducing the thickness of the fat layer.
Some patients see a reduction of fat after a single visit. However, because it takes time for the body to dispose of fat cells naturally, full results may be seen after a few months. You can also lose more fat cells with additional appointments. Since fat cells eliminated during the procedure no longer return, you can expect long-lasting results as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle.
The procedure requires no anesthesia or pain medication. CoolSculpting is not an invasive procedure which means patients can read magazines, listen to music, or work on their laptops during the treatment. Depending upon the patient’s body type, it can be used on the abdomen, arms, back, love handles and inner/outer thighs.
Patients can return immediately to their normal routine. There may be some redness or soreness in the treated area, though this will clear within a few hours. Any bruising which will disappear within a few weeks. Some patients have also reported a temporary dulling of sensation in the treated area. In cases of side effects, they are usually mild and do not require the patient to take medications or take some time off from work and other activities.
