Brooke has an extensive knowledge of the treatment, how it has changed and advanced over the years, and what areas of the body will respond best to reducing the pockets of fat. We work closely with our patients to determine if they are a qualified candidate for the treatment, as well as set realistic expectations for treatment outcomes to ensure patient satisfaction while keeping your budget in mind.
It is also FDA-cleared to affect the appearance of lax tissue with submental area treatments. CoolSculpting® is not a treatment for weight loss.
CoolSculpting® treats visible fat bulges in the following areas:
CoolSculpting® is the world’s #1 non-invasive fat-reduction procedure. It is an innovative way to contour your body by freezing unwanted fat away without surgery and little to no downtime. Once treated, your body will naturally eliminate the dead fat cells.
CoolSculpting® is tailored to every individual’s specific body and goals. Complimentary consultations are available in office to determine if you are a candidate for CoolSculpting® and to provide you with a full customized treatment plan and quote.
There is little to no downtime with CoolSculpting®. Majority of patients will have numbness and slight tenderness in weeks following the procedure, but should be able to return to regular activities immediately post treatment.
Most patients tolerate CoolSculpting® very well. The treated area will feel extremely cold and may have a slight burn upon initiation of treatment, but will subside within 5-10 minutes. Post treatment, your provider will perform a 2-minute post massage to the treated area. Most patients describe this as the most uncomfortable portion of your treatment.
You can expect to see results in as little as 30 days from your CoolSculpting®. However, the treated fat cells are continuing to die for 30-90 days post treatment and most patients need at least 2 treatment sessions to achieve desired results.
CoolSculpting® is permanent. Once those fat cells have been treated, they are gone for good. Therefore, theoretically if you were to never gain weight, those fat cells will not return. However, keep in mind you do still have fat cells remaining in your body, meaning CoolSculpting® does not keep you from being able to gain weight. If you do gain weight post CoolSculpting®, it is likely you will not gain weight as significantly in the treated area due to having fewer fat cells.
