Stubborn fat that won’t budge no matter how much you diet or exercise is a fact of life. You may think there’s nothing you can do about it short of undergoing an invasive surgical procedure that requires a lengthy downtime. Many people are anxious about taking on such a commitment or can’t afford such a disruption to their lives. It’s no surprise that CoolSculpting®, the fat reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to safely destroy targeted fat cells, is gaining in popularity. This method of freezing fat is non-invasive, convenient, comfortable and requires no downtime. In addition, it’s approved by the FDA, so you know it’s safe.
The process used in CoolSculpting® is known as Cryolipolysis. Since fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than the surrounding tissue, the procedure does not harm the skin. Only the fat cells of the targeted treatment area are affected. Once they are frozen, the cells begin to die off and are gradually metabolized and eliminated from the body. Upon the completion of this process, you will be left with the optimal results of reduced fat and firmer skin in the treated area with a sleek body contour. Common areas of treatment include the abdomen, upper back, lower back, flanks, male breasts and double chin.
Anyone dealing with stubborn fat that simply hasn’t responded to regular diet and exercise is likely a good candidate for CoolSculpting®. It’s important that you are in relatively good health and have realistic expectations. CoolSculpting® isn’t a weight loss treatment. You should be at or relatively close to your goal weight with only specific targeted areas of fat that have shown to be resistant to traditional measures. This treatment is suitable for both men and women. In addition, people of all ethnic backgrounds and a variety of skin tones can benefit from CoolSculpting® without concern of skin hyperpigmentation or discoloration.
What to Expect
CoolSculpting® treatments are performed in the comfort of our office. During the treatment, paddles are placed on the identified treatment area. The paddles themselves will begin to cool the treatment area to the necessary temperature to adequately freeze the fat cells. There is no intense discomfort, only a pulling and cooling sensation until the area eventually becomes numb.
This treatment is a safe, effective and convenient method of fat loss. Since the fat cells are gradually eliminated from your body, you can expect natural-looking results. At Elite Aesthetics in Needham, we are proud to offer DualSculpting as well as the Cool Mini applicator for optimal CoolSculpting® treatments.
