CoolSculpting® is a revolutionary fat reduction technique that freezes and eliminates unwanted body fat. If you live in Wellington, Vero Beach or in the surrounding communities of Palm Beach County and just can’t seem to get rid of that stubborn body fat, consider CoolSculpting® at Koger Cosmetic Clinic and Medspa in Jupiter, Florida.
Many people try for years to eliminate body fat through a strict diet and rigorous exercise, yet they still find it impossible to achieve the results they seek. However, thanks to a technique known as CoolSculpting®, this persistent body fat can be remedied quickly and effectively. The technique is non-surgical and non-invasive, reducing body fat below the skin through a method called cryolipolysis, in which body fat is targeted and reduced through exposure to cold temperatures.
The FDA-approved technique surrounds problem areas of fat with a fitted applicator and then cools the treatment area to just above freezing. The technology only affects fat cells, leaving skin cells unharmed while the affected fat cells are dissolved and consumed naturally by the body’s immune system.
About the CoolSculpting Procedure
Each treatment lasts 30-60 minutes depending on the treatment location. The number of treatments that each person will require varies depending on the unique composition of fat in each individual’s body, as well as the number of areas that the patient would like to address. Though the treatment is safe for skin cells, there may be slight bruising on the skin around the targeted area following the treatment. This bruising is only temporary, and it should subside fairly quickly, usually within 24 hours. Clients who undergo this procedure generally see a noticeable difference within eight to 12 weeks. Imaging studies have suggested that subcutaneous fat layers undergo a reduction of close to 25 percent following this non-invasive treatment, a change that can be permanent if clients maintain a lifestyle of healthy dieting and exercise after the treatment is completed.
CoolSculpting® offers several advantages to other surgical procedures, such as traditional liposuction. For clients in need of a fat reduction treatment that is easy and minimally burdensome, the following benefits set CoolSculpting apart from other techniques:
- Effectively reduces localized fat bulges
- Requires no anesthesia or injections
- Non-invasive procedure
- No risk of infection for patients
- Minimally disruptive to client’s schedule, as no recovery time is needed
Are You a Candidate for CoolSculpting®?
Each potential patient will undergo a consultation and overall physical assessment in order to determine whether CoolSculpting® is an appropriate solution. Treatment plans will vary depending on the total number of treatments needed, as well as your personal goals and schedule.
CoolSculpting can target specific trouble areas where you’d like to reduce fat. The treatment is FDA cleared for 9 different areas.
Though CoolSculpting® is non-invasive and does not require surgery, not everyone is a candidate for this procedure. The technique is not meant to be a remedy for weight loss. The procedure targets specific areas that are not affected by diet and exercise and is designed for spot treatment only.
Because the total number of treatments needed varies depending on the client’s needs, someone within roughly 10 pounds of their target body weight with a generally toned physique may only need a few treatments. Those who have a greater body mass and more body fat may require more treatments to target the various problem areas.
What are the Results from CoolSculpting®?
Typically more than one treatment is needed in order to maximize results, but many clients see results after only one treatment. Because the procedure relies on the body’s immune system to naturally consume and clear away the targeted fat cells, the process is gradual and takes time to fully complete.
The speed of results depends on the size of the treated area, but some patients may see results within three weeks following the treatment. Changes continue to develop gradually over the following months, typically peaking around the sixth month.
CoolSculpting Results Permanent?
The results are permanent as long as the client maintains a healthy lifestyle of a balanced diet and regular exercise, as the fat cells do not enlarge or grow back unless significant weight is gained following the procedure.
Can I Return to My Normal Life After the CoolSculpting Procedure?
The effects that most patients experience right after a procedure typically do not interfere with normal activity. There are no physical limitations after the procedure, which makes this technique ideal for patients with busy schedules who need to return to their daily activities following the procedure. Many people even opt to undergo the procedure during their lunch break, returning afterward with no impediment to their ability to work.
How Much Does CoolSculpting Cost?
The cost of CoolSculpting® depends on the treatment plan that each individual client requires. CoolSculpting is a cosmetic procedure therefore health insurance plans do not contribute to covering the cost of the procedure. Koger Cosmetic Clinic and Medspa in Jupiter, Florida accepts CareCredit® financing options.
