The Many Benefits of CoolSculpting®

The Many Benefits of CoolSculpting®

We know you don’t want to hear this, but: Diet and exercise may not be enough to get rid of all the jiggly fat from your belly and thighs. However, you have options that don’t include surgery or downtime. 

CoolSculpting® is a nonsurgical body-contouring tool that uses innovative freezing technology to get rid of your stubborn, exercise-resistant fat. At Associated Skin Care Specialists, our highly skilled board-certified cosmetic dermatologists are excited to offer this innovative treatment at our offices.

Here, we want to share many of the benefits you get with CoolSculpting. 

Treats common trouble spots

When it comes to weight loss, you don’t get to pick and choose the parts of your body that get slimmer and trimmer. Crunches, squats, and lunges won’t help, either. Some parts of the body just want to hold onto fat, and you can’t do a whole lot about that. 

But we can with our CoolSculpting body-contouring tool, which is FDA-cleared to treat nine areas of the body that really like to hold onto fat, including:

In addition to reducing fat in these areas, our CoolSculpting tool also tightens loose skin under the chin. 

Easy and painless

Body contouring with CoolSculpting is easy and painless. Before we start any CoolSculpting treatments, our skilled dermatologists conduct a thorough exam to make sure the treatment is the right choice for you. 

We can get rid of more than 20% of fat in the treated area, but CoolSculpting isn’t a weight-loss procedure. Our ideal candidate is at or close to their desired body weight with a body mass index of 30 or less.

Once we decide CoolSculpting makes a good choice for you, we schedule your treatment sessions. There’s nothing you need to do to prepare before CoolSculpting, except wear comfortable clothing.

After we place the CoolSculpting applicators on your body, you may feel a cooling sensation along with some tugging and pulling. However, once the area numbs, you won’t feel any of these sensations.

CoolSculpting treatment time varies, but generally takes less than an hour. When we remove the applicators from your body, we massage the skin to restore circulation and assist in the removal of the damaged fat cells. 

No recovery time

Once we finish your CoolSculpting session, you can resume your usual day. Though you may notice some redness and swelling in the treatment area, there’s no downtime. 

To get the best results, we may recommend two to four CoolSculpting sessions. 

Permanent fat loss

CoolSculpting works by freezing the fat cells under your skin, destroying the integrity of the cells, without affecting any other cell or tissue. Your body then removes the destroyed fat cells from the area and out of your body through normal processing.

Once those fat cells are gone, they won’t come back. CoolSculpting provides permanent results. However, those fat cells left behind can grow in size. To maintain your newly sculpted body, we recommend you eat a healthy diet, get regular exercise, and maintain a healthy weight. 

No downtime and permanent results. What more could you ask for in a body-contouring tool?
