What is CoolSculpting®
or CoolSculpting® Elite?
CoolSculpting is a noninvasive fat reduction treatment for both men and women based on cryolipolysis, commonly known as “fat freezing.” During a CoolSculpting treatment, cooling technology is used to freeze subcutaneous fat while the surrounding muscles, nerves, blood vessels and other tissues remain unaffected. The frozen fat cells break down and are eliminated by the body’s lymphatic system.
CoolSculpting has been FDA-approved since 2010. It is a widely used and a well-established body contouring treatment with a strong track record of safety and efficacy.
What Can CoolSculpting Treat?
CoolSculpting is FDA-approved for the removal of unwanted subcutaneous fat in many areas of the body. These areas include:
- Under the jawline
- Under the chin
- Love handles
- Thigh area
- Upper arms
- Back fat
- Banana rolls (under the buttocks)
Benefits of CoolSculpting®
There are many fat reduction procedures to choose from, from invasive liposuction to noninvasive devices employing a range of technologies. CoolSculpting has many unique benefits not seen with other treatments, which is why so many patients choose CoolSculpting over the alternatives:
- Convenient, noninvasive procedure
- No required downtime and quick recovery
- Noticeable results within 4-12 weeks
- Clinically proven to remove up to 25% of fat in the treatment area in each session
- Ability to treat multiple areas at once
CoolSculpting permanently eliminates fat cells rather than simply reducing their size. This means that, long as you maintain a healthy diet and regular exercise routine, your long-term results can remain stable and you can continue enjoying your slimmer, more sculpted body indefinitely.
What can I expect during CoolSculpting® or CoolSculpting® Elite Treatment?
A typical treatment can last between one and three hours, depending on the area (s) that is being treatment. During the treatment, many people read, work on their laptop, or even take a nap. The procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically clients return to normal activities immediately. No supplements or pills are required and many of our clients feel even more motivated to actively maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle following their CoolSculpting® or CoolSculpting® Elite treatment.
Am I a candidate for CoolSculpting® or CoolSculpting® Elite?
CoolSculpting® or CoolSculpting® Elite is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese or a substitute for surgical methods such as liposuction. Good candidates have noticeable bulges of stubborn fat in certain areas that have not responded to diet and exercise. There is minimal to no downtime after the treatment, although some clients may experience temporary discomfort, redness, bruising, swelling, tenderness to the touch, cramping, itching, tingling, and numbness. Side effects are temporary and last a few days to a week. Clients may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after treatment and will experience the most dramatic results after two months.
What kind of results can I expect?
During a CoolSculpting® or CoolSculpting® Elite treatment, the affected fat cells are eliminated and as long as clients maintain their weight with normal diet and exercise, long-term results should remain stable. Typically, CoolSculpting® or CoolSculpting® Elite treatments result in up to 50% reduction of fat in the treated area(s) and create a noticeably contoured difference. If you are interested in a non-surgical fat reduction option, schedule a consultation with Persona’s Beauty Consultant, who will address your area(s) of concern and design an individualized treatment plan to best suit your individual needs.
