What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is the number one non-surgical fat reduction treatment available in the world today. This procedure is entirely noninvasive, using only the gentle power of controlled cooling to freeze and eliminate fat from problem areas. Because fat cells are removed entirely, the results of CoolSculpting® can last for years.
This technique can be used to sculpt and slim nearly any area of the body, including the:
- Inner thighs
- Outer thighs
On average, 95% of patients that have undergone this procedure report being highly satisfied with the results of their treatment.
How Does it Work?
During CoolSculpting®, the cooling applicator is placed over a specific problem area. This applicator slowly begins to cool and freeze the fat cells in the area, continuing through the entire duration of treatment. Because fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than other skin tissues, the surrounding tissues and cells are left unharmed. As these fat cells are frozen, they go through a process called Cryolipolysis®, rupturing and eventually being removed by the body entirely.
What do CoolSculpting® Treatments Involve?
During treatment, controlled cooling is administered through our CoolSculpting® applicator and directed at the treatment area. While this cooling sensation may feel intensely cold at the beginning of treatment, this feeling usually subsides within 5-10 minutes. The duration of each CoolSculpting® session takes about an hour to complete per treatment area.
Following treatment, patients may experience side effects like temporary numbness, swelling bruising, tingling, and redness at the treatment site. Fortunately, these usually resolve completely within a few weeks. Aside from these side effects, most patients experience absolutely no downtime following a CoolSculpting® procedure, and can return right back to their daily routines as soon as it is complete.
CoolSculpting® is one of the fastest, easiest, and most effective ways to combat excess fat available today. If you’d like to learn more about CoolSculpting® or are interested in undergoing this treatment yourself, contact Ultimate Solutions Med Spa today to schedule a consultation appointment.
