You eat right and exercise, but parts of your body stubbornly still hold onto fat. Don’t just sit back and accept that you can’t have the body you desire. Call our office to learn about CoolSculpting, a scientifically-proven treatment that freezes away unwanted fat to get you a slimmer, more sculpted body.
Body fat is the problem
CoolSculpting isn’t about comprehensive weight loss. Rather, it aims to help you get rid of unwanted fat for good.
As an adult, you have a pretty constant number of fat cells. When you gain weight,
the cells swell and when you lose it, they shrink. The majority of your fat, or adipose tissue, is located beneath your skin in the subcutaneous layer of your body.
Most of the time, when you eat right and exercise the existing fat cells shrink but some fat can become diet or exercise resistant due to either genetics or receptors in the cells themselves. This can lead to stubborn fat pockets on your body that you can’t lose through traditional methods.
CoolSculpting works to make you lose fat by destroying up to 25% of fat cells in the treatment areas. They don’t just shrink, these fat cells are eliminated for good.
A unique treatment
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved body contouring procedure known as cryolipolysis that gently destroys fat cells by freezing them. The process involves subjecting your fat cells to extremely cold temperatures so they can’t survive. The destroyed fat cells are then eliminated by your natural waste removal processes.
CoolSculpting is unique in that it doesn’t damage surrounding skin or tissue. This makes the fat-busting technique completely safe and effective – expect a 20-25% reduction of fat cells in a given treatment area.
Effective in trouble areas
CoolSculpting is effective in those common fat-storage areas that just never budge. These include your:
- Abdomen and back
- Inner and outer thighs
- Under the chin area
- Upper arms
- Under your buttocks
- Waist and love handles
The doctors at Pure MD can treat multiple areas in one session, saving you time and getting you the look you want.
How CoolSculpting works
We tailor your CoolSculpting session to target any trouble spots you identify and help you achieve your aesthetic goals. CoolSculpting has a variety of handpiece applicators to address the size of your treatment area. A protective gel pad is applied to the treatment area.
You feel gentle suction as the CoolSculpting technology vacuums fat into a hollow chamber. You feel distinct cold for the first 5-10 minutes and then go numb, so you can relax and read, work on your phone, or even nap.
Each CoolSculpting session takes approximately 35 minutes, depending on the area
treated. When your treatment is complete, we remove the applicator and massage
the area. This part of the process helps breaks up your frozen fat cells which
makes them easier for your body to process.
No downtime or recovery period
There’s no downtime following CoolSculpting treatments. You can go back to work, errands, and even workouts following your treatment.
You’ll begin to notice results from your treatment approximately three weeks after your session with maximum benefit within six weeks to two months. Your body needs time to break down the
frozen fat cells and eliminate them from your system.
