You diet, you exercise, but there are just some pockets of stubborn fat that won’t go away. Did you know it was possible to freeze away your fat? CoolSculpting is a safe and effective, FDA-cleared treatment to freeze stubborn fat so that your body can naturally eliminate it. Here are six things you should know about this fat-reduction treatment:
Your fat is “frozen away.” During treatment, the CoolSculpting device is positioned on the specific area and controlled cooling is applied. Treated fat cells crystallize or “freeze” and then die. Gradually, over time, your body will naturally eliminate the frozen fat to reveal a better shape.
You can remove up to 25 percent of fat in just one treatment. You may need more treatments for maximum results, but Dr. Dawes and his team will tell you upfront if they think a second treatment may be necessary for you to reach your goal.
Treatment can be done in as little as 35 minutes. The length of treatment depends on the areas you want treated and how many areas are addressed at one time. During treatment, you can sit back and relax, read, watch videos, check your email or even take a nap.
There is little to no downtime. As CoolSculpting is non-surgical, you can return to work and resume normal activities almost immediately. Typical side effects include bruising, swelling and tenderness and usually resolves within 1-2 weeks.
You will see results in as little as one month. Final results may take six months or more as your body continues to flush out dead fat cells. If necessary, a second treatment may be necessary. Results can last several years, even with fluctuations in weight.
CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss solution. It’s designed to freeze stubborn fat under the chin and jawline, along the bra line and the back, in the thigh, abdomen and flank, underneath the buttocks, and on the upper arm. CoolSculpting is the only controlled cooling treatment that is FDA-cleared and Health Canada approved for targeting and eliminating diet- and exercise-resistant fat.
Both women and men can benefit from CoolSculpting. To learn more about this state-of-the-art treatment and our other non-surgical services to help you achieve your desired look, book a consultation online or call 403.571.3141.
