CoolSculpting is a new and highly effective non-surgical treatment aimed at the reduction and elimination of unwanted stubborn fat, through a cutting-edge, controlled cooling system. Using this highly effective cooling system, the targeted fat cells are crystallized or “frozen”, and eventually die off. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat, eliminating the dead cells and leaving you with the sleek and sculpted body you desire.
For some patients, no matter how hard they exercise or how ruthlessly they diet, they just can't seem to shed that stubborn fat. We all have certain trouble spots where fat tends to deposit and just won’t come off, despite all methods of trying. CoolSculpting has proven to be a highly safe and effective solution to getting rid of stubborn fat and unwanted cellulite.
CoolSculpting vs. Liposuction
One of the many reasons CoolSculpting is so popular is it is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure, therefore requiring no general anesthesia, recovery or downtime. Patients can immediately return to work and resume their normal activities.
Reversely, liposuction is a surgical procedure and does require patients to undergo general anesthesia. As it is an invasive procedure, liposuction can require several weeks of downtime and recovery, thereby making CoolSculpting the optimum solution for patients seeking a less invasive approach.
Results & Side Effects
Most patients will start to see results as soon as four weeks after the initial procedure, but will experience the most dramatic results after two months. Your body will continue to flush out fat cells for up to 4 to 6 months post treatment.
Because each patient’s body is unique and different, some patients may require more than one treatment of CoolSculpting to achieve the desired result. Others may see the final and desired result after just one session. This is something Dr. Repta can discuss with you in detail during your consultation.
As long as one maintains a relatively healthy lifestyle, the results of CoolSculpting are permanent, leaving you with the sleek and toned body you’ve always wanted.
Side effects are virtually non-existent and rare, but may include temporary discomfort or a numb-like feeling in the treated areas, following the session. However, the discomfort shouldn’t last more than 24 hours.
