When you have a moderate amount of fat that is difficult to remove, then cryolipolysis may be the answer. Cryolipolysis, also known as Coolsculpting, is a unique treatment that utilizes a cooling system to break down fat cells. Over a period of 2-4 months, the body dissolves fat cells and reabsorbs them. The process leaves patients with reduced body fat and improved shape.*
Subcutaneous fat, which is found just beneath the skin, has been found to be more vulnerable to cold temperatures than other fat tissues. Under a cryolipolysis procedure, this body fat can be reduced without surgical means. CoolSculpting is FDA-approved, safe, and effective because the delivery of precise cooling affects only targeted fat cells, leaving adjacent tissue unharmed and intact.*
CoolSculpting is not intended as a weight-reduction program for overweight individuals. The best candidates for the procedure are people near their ideal body weight who eat well and exercise regularly and have pockets of fat that have not responded to a healthy lifestyle.
CoolSculpting is ideal for people who are seeking spot reduction for specific areas of fat but are not considering a surgical procedure.
