What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting uses a unique cooling technology that selectively freezes fat cells and destroys them. Once the fat is destroyed, the body wills sweep the dead fat cells out of the body through its own natural cleansing mechanism. Thanks to a specially designed applicator, CoolSculpting can also be used for chin fat reduction and to contour the neck area.
During a treatment, the vacuum-enabled applicator is placed on the fatty area, which pulls the fat towards the device. Next, the cooling technology is enabled, which targets the fat cells and freezes them so they can be eliminated. To protect the skin and increase comfort during the process, a special gel is placed over the treatment area. During the procedure, patients will feel a cooling sensation and light pressure. CoolSculpting causes minimal discomfort and, unlike liposuction, does not require any anesthesia or recovery time.
On average, a CoolSculpting session takes about one hour. For the chin and neck area, 1-2 treatments are typically done.The biggest benefit of CoolSculpting is that it permanently destroys fat cells so the body can remove them—once they are gone, they are gone. To maintain optimal results, patients should avoid weight fluctuations after treatment.
