Possibly nothing is more frustrating than stubborn pockets of body fat that are immune to diet and exercise. Sometimes, no matter how much you workout or how healthy your diet, these persistent little deposits need something extra, and that’s where CoolSculpting® comes in. At MD Brothers, we are proud to offer this non-invasive body sculpting treatment so that you can finally see all of the results you’ve been wanting.
What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is a body contouring treatment famous for eliminating exercise-resistant fat pockets without any kind of surgical or invasive measure. This celebrated procedure received approval from the FDA for cosmetic use in 2012 and has since become a household name. And as its name suggests, CoolSculpting® works by employing cold temperatures in a process known as “fat freezing” or cryolipolysis.
How does it work?
During your CoolSculpting® session, which takes place right tin our offices, a member of our aesthetic team will move a special handheld applicator over the specified areas, sending controlled coolness through them while you rest. When the lower temperatures are applied to the local fat deposits, they effectively freeze and are absorbed by the body’s lymphatic system. You can have CoolSculpting® applied to various regions, including:
- Love handles
- Bra Area
- Banana Roll (under the buttocks)
The duration of your CoolSculpting® treatment depends on the area or areas you are treating, but it can be done as easily as on your lunch break. The process is comfortable and lets you rest while you’re burning away fat. Many of our patients go on their phones, take a nap, watch TV or read.
When you’re done, there is no downtime. You may return to your regular routine directly after the session and wait for your results, which generally emerge anywhere from a couple of weeks to three months. Results are known to be long-lasting, with the fat cells being permanently eliminated. We recommend healthy eating and regular exercise to help maintain optimal results.
Who is a candidate?
If you are reasonably close to your ideal weight, have exercise-resistant deposits of fat and lead a healthy lifestyle, you are a superb candidate for CoolSculpting®. It is important to maintain realistic expectations for this procedure: It is not a weight loss avenue, but instead is an effective method of permanently removing residual pockets of fat.
