Even though CoolSculpting® was just released in 2010, over 700,000 successful treatments have already been carried out. This amazing technology allows patients to lose weight and tone their skin without invasive surgery. In as little as two weeks, you could shed stubborn fat, transform your body, and regain your confidence. Dr. Rauscher offers this innovative and popular fat reduction system to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
Am I a Candidate for CoolSculpting®?
If you are tired of stubborn pockets of fat along your midsection or thighs, then this treatment may be right for you. CoolSculpting® was specifically designed to help patients who can’t seem to get rid of difficult bulges no matter how much they exercise and how well they eat. CoolSculpting® can help reduce fat volume, but it is not an alternative to diet and exercise. Patients who require extensive weight loss may be better suited to alternative procedures or programs.
The CoolSculpting® system was created by a company known as Zeliq. In 2005, Zeliq began experimenting with a unique fat-burning science called Cryolipolysis™. This science is based on the fact that fat cells receive a “death signal” when the temperature drops too low. Unlike the nearby ligaments and muscles which can resist cold temperatures, the fat cells become weakened and are eventually metabolized by the body. CoolSculpting® works by concentrating cold temperatures on the problematic areas for quicker and more impressive results.
What Will the Procedure Be Like?
The average CoolSculpting® appointment lasts for around 60 minutes if only a single area is going to be treated. Once you arrive at your appointment, you will be shown to a quiet room where you can sit down and relax. After you are in a comfortable position, our team will place the CoolSculpting® device over the treatment area. This device is nothing more than a control panel and a small bag that sticks to your skin through suction. Once the treatment has begun, most patients read or use their mobile devices. After the hour is up, the device is removed and the treatment site is massaged to warm it back up.
Determining How Many Treatments Are Needed
You and our medical team can determine how many CoolSculpting® sessions will be needed after your first appointment. Some patients are completely satisfied with their appearance after a single treatment. Others are so happy with the results that they schedule additional appointments to treat other areas of the body. This all depends on your own cosmetic goals and how your body reacts to CoolSculpting®.
A Look at the Results
On average, CoolSculpting® removes around 25 percent of the fat at the treatment site. This makes it one of the most effective non-invasive weight loss treatments in the world. In the weeks following your first appointment, the fat cells will be metabolized and expelled from your body. As long as your body does not make new fat cells, the results will be permanent. This is why it is so important for patients to continue eating well and exercising following their treatment.
