How Does CoolSculpting™ Eliminate Fat?

CoolSculpting1-300x251Diet and exercise can help you maintain your physique, but often the natural process of aging, pregnancy and childbirth, and life as a whole can leave your body with a different shape than you desire. CoolSculpting™ treatments performed by our experienced specialist, Marouska Smith, and directed by our skilled physician, Dr. Shehla Ebrahim, are designed to reduce those stubborn pockets of fat without surgery. If you’re having difficulty reshaping your body contour, this innovative procedure may be right for you.

CoolSculpting™ works by delivering controlled cooling to the area of concern, typically the stomach, thighs, and flanks (also called love handles), in a process called cryolipolysis. In some cases, this procedure can be utilized on other areas of the body, and our doctors will develop a customized treatment plan that addresses your unique needs. The device will be placed on the region to be treated and, once activated, will crystalize the fat cells located deep within the skin, destroying them. The freezing temperatures are designed to affect fat cells only and typically will not harm the surrounding tissue. During the procedure, you’re free to check your email, read, work, or even sleep! Your natural metabolic processes will eliminate the destroyed fat tissue over time while you relax and enjoy the benefits of this revolutionary technique.

CrystalYou should see the beginning stages of your results in a few weeks, with the final outcome visible after about three to four months. While one session may be sufficient to achieve your desired aesthetic goals, you may need a second treatment, depending on your individual needs. Marouska will discuss the best course of action during your initial consultation.
