If focalized areas of fat are getting in the way of your diet and exercise efforts, maybe you need a bit of help to get rid of these deposits for good. CoolSculpting is a non-surgical method of body contouring that will freeze away those trouble spots, giving you the smoother, sleeking body profile you have been working toward. This innovative procedure is available at Windward Medispa, offering our patients a way to sculpt the body without anesthesia, incisions or recovery time.
CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis, a technology that delivers controlled cooling directly to fat cells to destroy them. Because fat cells respond to higher temperatures than the rest of the body, the cooling technology destroys the fat cells without damaging surrounding skin and tissue. Treated fat cells are eliminated by natural body processes over time and the treatment area becomes slimmer and more contoured.
What do you want to sculpt?
CoolSculpting is a versatile procedure that can treat a number of different trouble areas:
- Abdomen and midsection
- Upper and lower back
- Hips and buttocks
- Inner and outer thighs
With a variety of attachments, this device can also address smaller sections of the body like upper arms, underneath the chin and behind the knees. We will discuss your specific concerns and desired results to determine whether CoolSculpting will provide you with the outcome you are hoping for.
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, painless procedure. Patients undergoing the one-hour treatment may feel an intense sensation of cold at the start of the procedure, but this will subside rather quickly. Most of our patients are able to relax during treatment, reading, checking emails or even napping while undergoing the procedure.
The applicators are situated over the treatment areas and left in place throughout the treatment session. The device provides gentle suction, pulling the skin and tissue taut so the cooling can be more evenly distributed. After the procedure, patients are usually able to return to their normal activities right away. There may be some redness or tenderness in the treatment area, but these side effects will subside on their own within a matter of day.
Gradual, Long-Lasting Results
The results of a CoolSculpting treatment develop gradually as the treated fat cells are eliminated. Your friends and family may think you are simply logging extra hours at the gym, rather than undergoing a cosmetic treatment. Most patients will see their full results within three to six months.
In some cases, patients may decide to undergo a subsequent treatment a few months after the first to further enhance their results. Most individuals will see a fat reduction of around 25 percent with each procedure.
Those results will be permanent as long as a healthy weight is maintained after the procedure. Although treated fat cells are completely eliminated, if you gain weight after treatment, other fat cells remaining in the area can enlarge. This may affect your overall results and necessitate another procedure to restore your slimmer body contour.
CoolSculpting is a quick, relatively easy procedure that can eliminate those trouble spots and give you a smoother body profile. To learn more about this procedure, contact Windward Medispa at 808-797-2687.
