This ultimate body contouring art form is easy, non-surgical, and FDA approved. No needles, pain, or downtime, it can be used as an alternative to liposuction. CoolSculpting® targets fat and freezes the fat cells that hide from exercise and diet. Once frozen, the fat cells die, and the body expels them naturally. This very targeted cool process hits at the stubborn fat that lingers and prevents the appearance of a strong, toned body.At Lexington Plastic Surgeons, CoolSculpting® is requested daily because it has little to no rest/repair down time. You can sculpt today and be slender tomorrow.
The Science behind CoolSculpting®, owned by Allergan (you know them as the makers of Botox), is the process of cryolipolysis. A nice long word that means fat freezing. CoolSculpting® targets fat, freezes it without damage to other cells, tissues, or skin layers. Fat cells have a lower tolerance for cold, so they crystalize, die, and leave the body, naturally, through the lymphatic drainage system.
The device is so targeted and intuitive that it can be used to reduce fat cells in the chin, arms, back (around bra fat), abdominals (upper and lower), thighs (inner and outer) and knees. It turns itself off once it has frozen the fat cells within the zone.
There are no incisions or punctures to the skin, therefore, downtime and pain are limited. What you will feel during your treatment(s) is a tugging sensation as the device moves over your skin. You will feel extreme cold, in the treated area, until it becomes numb within the procedure period of 30-40 minutes. If laying down for your treatment, you might fall asleep to the gentle hum.
You’ll see results quickly and after a second treatment, you’ll see even better results.
Each patient will have a personalized treatment to reach their own goals. Some will need or want more than others. The CoolSculpting® device becomes aware and stops once it has targeted the fat cells in the zone.
The results will last as long as you maintain your diet and level of exercise that brought you to CoolSculpting®.
