Featured in a recent segment on “The Dr. Oz Show,” CoolSculpting® is the latest in non-invasive fat-reduction technology. Developed by Harvard scientists and doctors, CoolSculpting utilizes the power of cooling to eliminate areas of unwanted fat. By applying extreme cold to the treatment area(s) CoolSculpting works similarly to liposuction without the needles, drugs, or suctioning cannulas, and patients can return to work right after the treatment.
Dr. Oz’s guest demonstrates the ease and comfort the CoolSculpting treatment provides patients. Lasting only an hour per treatment area, CoolSculpting can be performed during lunch and patients can return to work, no recovery time needed. Most patients see results in the first three weeks, with full results visible after two to four months. Most patients see a reduction of up to 40% of the fat in the treatment area(s) with two treatments.
CoolSculpting is not for everyone, though. The ideal CoolSculpting candidate is someone who adheres to a healthy diet and exercise routine but still has small pockets of persistent fat around the waist, abdomen, and/or legs. CoolSculpting can help reduce the fat in the treatment area to smooth and refine the silhouette.
Specifically, the treatment works by cooling the fat cells beyond their range of viability, essentially killing them. The lymphatic system works over the next two to four months to eliminate the damaged fat cells and reduce the total amount of fat in the treatment area(s).
CoolSculpting is revolutionary because it allows patients the fat reduction they’d expect from more invasive, plastic surgery procedures with no incisions, no recovery time, and little to no side effects.
