What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a proven technology, which is safe and effective and works extremely well and rivals surgical results without downtime. Cryolypolisis, or freezing fat; gently and effectively reduces unwanted fat by up to 25% or more.
Non-surgical fat reduction, CoolSculpting® has revolutionized the way providers are able to target and eliminate pockets of fat, which are resistant to diet and exercise. CoolSculpting is also the only technology cleared by the FDA for non-surgical fat reduction with controlled cooling.
How does CoolSculpting work?
CoolSculpting works by delivering precisely targeted low temperatures to fat cells beneath the skin. The fat cells freeze, become crystallized and die. The precisely controlled method of cooling is called Cryolipolysis® and was developed by scientists and physicians at Harvard. A benefit of the Cryolipolysis® method is that it does not cause damage to other tissues.
The CoolSculpting Process
You will come to Dermablue for a complimentary total body assessment with our certified coolsculpting consultant, who has trained at Coolsculpting University to determine the optimal treatment plan.
At Dermablue, we have all of the most advanced treatment handpieces, so we can treat the following areas:
- Belly fat/abdomen
- Ab refinement, ‘six pack abs’
- Love handles/flanks
- Back/bra fat
- Outer/inner thigh/legs/hips
- Above the knee
Once we determine your treatment plan, we will schedule your treatment. On your treatment day, you can sit back and relax while the CoolSculpting device is positioned on your body to apply targeted cooling to unwanted fat cells. To start, a pinch-able bulge of fat will be packed into a contouring applicator developed for your specific area of concern, where the fat cells are frozen. Initially, you will feel some pressure and intense cold, but these sensations dissipate. You may feel pulling, tugging, pinching, or numbness during the procedure from the temperature, but the procedure is not painful.
There will be no damage to your skin, as only the fat cells are targeted, using Cryolipolysis®. When the treated area is released from the suction device (which is a little like a handheld vacuum attachment) you will have a small block of frozen tissue, which we will then massage until it returns to a normal shape and distribution.
The treatment is very comfortable and can sit back and relax, while the CoolSculpting device is used by our certified technician.
How Long is the CoolSculpting Procedure?
The Coolsculpting procedure takes between one and four hours in the office, depending on the area of the body being targeted. After treatment most patients experience a noticeable, natural looking reduction of fat in the treated areas. Often, our patients decide to undergo more than one treatment, for total body transformation. At Dermablue, we will work with you to determine a care plan based on your individual needs, goals, and budget.
What Results can I Expect from Coolsculpting?
- You can expect a 20% to 25% reduction in fat after one treatment. Additional benefits are seen with multiple treatment sessions. Best results will be evident after the destroyed fat cells are eliminated naturally by the body. Immediately after the procedure, you won’t see a change, as your body must first naturally process the crystalized fat cells.
- As the treated cells are eliminated the troublesome pockets of fat are sculpted away.
- You will start seeing results at four weeks with maximum results seen at 3 months
How much does Coolsculpting Cost?
Coolsculpting treatments are very individualized and are based on the number of treatments needed. We offer free consultations and offer a discount based on the number of treatment areas you would like treated.
