Most exercise buffs and dietary adventurers in the NJ area can tell you that it sometimes takes more than a perfect diet or regular gym sessions to blast through stubborn pockets of fat. For many years, there was very little that you could do about it. Medical innovations have led to the development of body contouring procedures like CoolSculpting® that can non-invasively reduce areas of stubborn fat.
What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is an innovative technological breakthrough that effectively and gently minimizes unwanted fat. As a non-surgical method of reducing fat, this procedure has completely revolutionized the way that we can target and eliminate fat pockets that are unresponsive to changes in diet and exercise. CoolSculpting® is the only FDA-approved technology cleared for non-surgical fat reduction using controlled freezing.
How Does It Work?
CoolSculpting® works through the delivery of precision-targeted low temperatures that destroy fat cells found under the skin. After these fat cells have become frozen, they crystallize and die. One advantage of the treatment is that it removes fat without damaging nearby tissue.
The Treatment Process
Once it has been determined what area will be treated, you can simply sit back and relax in a comforting environment. We position the CoolSculpting® device over your body in the treatment area. We use paddles to suction up fat into a position just below the surface of the skin. From there, the fat cells will be frozen and destroyed. You may experience some brief intense cold and pressure, but these sensations fade rapidly as the area becomes numb.
How Long Will My Procedure Take?
The CoolSculpting® treatment is performed in the comfort of our office in New Jersey. The length of treatment varies depending upon the size of the treatment area and other factors. Following your procedure, you will notice a reduction of fat in the treatment area over time. You may choose to have more than one treatment performed.
When Will I See the Results?
You may see a reduction of fat in the treatment area after only one treatment. Full results can be noticed after the fat cells that were destroyed by the body contouring treatment are naturally eliminated by your body. You should see results in the weeks and months following the treatment.
