Reduce belly fat with our new non-invasive treatment to reduce fat in the abdominal area.
Despite exercise and a healthy lifestyle, many people have difficulty losing excess fat in their abdomen and belly area. For these people, CoolSculpting is a great choice to treat that stubborn, exercise resistant pooch.
CoolSculpting is the most popular, completely non-invasive treatment for eliminating unwanted fat. The science behind CoolSculpting originated when an observant dermatologist at Harvard, Rox Anderson, noticed that children who suck on popsicles developed a hollowing of the cheek because a little fat pocket would shrink. He soon discovered that freezing of fat cells causes them to die. From this he developed the system of CoolSculpting, which applies cold temperature across the skin surface, resulting in a freezing of the fat. The fat then dies and is metabolized by the body. With each treatment, approximately 25% of the stubborn pocket of fat is removed. With enough treatments, dramatic results can be obtained.
CoolSculpting is not a substitute for surgical methods such as liposuction. CoolSculpting is for individuals who are relatively close to their ideal body weight and are hoping to slim down stubborn areas of fat that just won’t go away with diet and exercise.
Our CoolSculpting provider will determine if you are a good candidate for the CoolSculpting abdomen treatment during your consultation.
CoolSculpting is non invasive. There are no needles, no surgery, and hardly any downtime with CoolSculpting. Patients who would like to reduce excess belly fat in the abdominal area can do so quite easily, without anesthesia or recovery time.
Patients who have the CoolSculpting procedure performed on their abdominal area may experience a slight tingling sensation on the targeted area as the applicator delivers controlled cooling.This usually subsides after the first ten minutes of the treatment. The CoolSculpting applicator will remain attached to your abdomen for anywhere between 35-60 minutes. Many patients will read, work on their computer, or even take a nap during the procedure. The cooling causes fat cells to die slowly. Once fat cells are removed by the body, they never regenerate.
As your body begins to naturally eliminate the dead fat cells, you’ll notice the fat in the treated area begin to diminish. After about two months, you will see significant results. The treated area will slim down and you will be able to experience the beautiful results of your CoolSculpting treatment.
Many patients notice a reduction in fat after a single CoolSculpting treatment, but most patients require multiple treatments for best results. Our staff will be able to provide you with the appropriate treatment recommendation during your consultation.
Coolsculpting is not a weight loss procedure, but is is an effective solution for eliminating fat. If you want to slim an area down or have stubborn fat that makes you feel anything less than confident and sexy, schedule a consultation with us to see how you can see significant results with CoolSculpting.
