With the New Year so close, it's time to think about getting back into shape, after all that yummy food from the holidays. CoolSculpting will get rid of love handles, a muffin top, or other unwanted bulges comfortably, conveniently, and naturally. CoolSculpting is an exciting new procedure that freezes unwanted fat off, literally!
Life Is Beautiful without BulgesIt's a common complaint: People who are physically fit and at a stable weight still have bulges, rolls, and other small areas of fat they can't get rid of no matter how much they exercise or diet. Spot reducing fat through diet and exercise is practically impossible for many of us.
Men and women alike face the frustrating truth every day: A muffin top. Love handles. Back fat—not much, but just enough to show through a snug-fitting t-shirt or blouse. These small areas of fat don't seem to warrant a surgical procedure. But they're tempted. What else can they do?
CoolSculpting: The Cool SolutionNow you can attack these problem areas with the non-invasive CoolSculpting procedure. A team of scientists and physicians developed the CoolSculpting procedure to address these problems. CoolSculpting utilizes a precisely controlled cooling method called Cryolipolysis to target, cool and eliminate fat cells without damage to other tissue.
After a one- to three-hour CoolSculpting procedure, the patient's body goes to work. Over the next two to four months, the crystallized fat cells break down and are naturally eliminated from the body.
The ‘Skinny’ on Fat ReductionCoolSculpting by ZELTIQ is not intended as a weight-reduction program for overweight individuals. The best candidates for the CoolSculpting procedure are people near their ideal body weight who eat well and exercise regularly and have pockets of fat that have not responded to a healthy lifestyle. They are seeking long-lasting spot reduction for this specific area of fat, but they are not considering a surgical procedure with its inherent expense, downtime, and safety risks.
What will the results be?The CoolSculpting™ by ZELTIQ™ procedure can reduce the fat layer by 20 to 40%. Scientific testing has found an average reduction of 20%. If the patient's treatment plan calls for an additional procedure to get rid of love handles or back fat, this will be done after two to four months, depending on the doctor's advice. An additional 20% reduction can be experienced, resulting in a total fat loss of 40%. Final losses may be more or less, depending on the case.
What happens during the procedure?The patient and doctor first select the area(s) to be treated. For instance, if your goal is to reduce your love handles, the doctor will position the system on your side. The device then draws the bulge up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm tug and pull – enough of a pull to ensure the tissue will be cooled most efficiently.
What does it feel like?As the panels go to work in the first few minutes, the patient feels a sensation of intense cold. This soon dissipates. The patient is seated comfortably or lying down during the one- to three-hour procedure. Many people spend this time reading, working on their laptop, or even taking a nap.
Can the patient return to normal activities after the procedure?Yes. The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-invasive, so the patient can return to normal activities immediately. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, or numbness in the treated area, but this is temporary.
When will the patient see results?Patients may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after their treatment and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. But the body is still flushing fat cells and will continue doing so for up to four months.
Are the results permanent?During the CoolSculpting procedure, the treated fat cells are eliminated. As long as the patient maintains his or her weight with diet and exercise, long-term results should remain stable.
