Does an accumulation of hard-to-remove fat keep you from achieving the sculpted figure you have worked for? CoolSculpting® treats areas from the abdomen to under the chin to remove unwanted fat. It removes unwanted fat to target your problem areas and help you address those, especially challenging areas.
What is CoolSculpting® for Body Contouring?
Non-invasive body contouring has grown in popularity as people have realized they can achieve sculpting and fat removal without surgery. CoolSculpting® can help you achieve your desired shape using cold temperatures that cause no harm to the skin. It causes fat cells to freeze, resulting in their removal from the body.
At Krauss Dermatology, we offer CoolSculpting® Elite. This gold standard system has many advantages over its predecessor, including treating twice as many areas simultaneously. CoolSculpting® works because fat cells start to freeze at a temperature that does not affect skin cells. Freezing fat cells, a process called cryolipolysis, damages their membranes. Your body’s lymphatic system will recognize these damaged cells and filter them away.
How Effective is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is FDA-cleared, so it has demonstrated its effectiveness in scientific studies. CoolSculpting® has been shown to remove up to 25% of fat from targeted areas with each treatment. Most patients will benefit from more than one session.
While CoolSculpting® results will not equal those of a surgical procedure and cannot tighten loose skin, they can provide significant body contouring to help you reach your goals. At Krauss Dermatology, your team develops a plan based on your desired results.
Is There Any Downtime With CoolSculpting®?
A CoolSculpting® appointment usually takes 30 to 60 minutes. You can return to your daily routine immediately without restrictions. Many people notice minor redness and swelling that resolve within a few days. You may also experience temporary tingling or numbness lasting a few days to weeks.
Your lymphatic system removes treated fat cells in a gradual process. You may notice improvements after a few weeks and full results in about three to four months. Your body does not regrow fat cells, so the ones removed with CoolSculpting® will not return. However, remaining fat cells can enlarge, so maintaining a consistent weight will help maintain results.
Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting®?
Ideal candidates for CoolSculpting® want to address specific areas of targeted fat. Candidates who see the best body contouring results are usually at or near their goal weight, although others can still benefit. Non-invasive CoolSculpting® works safely on all skin types and tones.
You should not have CoolSculpting® while pregnant or if you have certain medical conditions that make you sensitive to colds such as Raynaud’s disease. You may need to reschedule if you have a skin infection, irritation, or active condition in the area. Only a consultation with your Krauss Dermatology team can determine whether CoolSculpting® is recommended for you.
