CoolSculpting in Rochester, NY
What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® was developed out of a need for an effective and noninvasive alternative to liposuction. Instead of undergoing surgery, CoolSculpting® patients can have fat eliminated via specialized cooling technology. Of all the body contouring procedures currently available, CoolSculpting® is quickly becoming one of the most popular because of its noninvasive nature. Patients who are looking to get rid of unsightly bulges can do so with minimal discomfort.
A new technology known as Cryolipolysis is the force behind CoolSculpting®. It destroys fat cells through cooling while leaving skin, muscle, and other tissues perfectly intact.
This procedure is FDA approved for the flanks and abdomen – “muffin top,” “love handles,” and belly bulges. CoolSculpting® is not for patients who are obese or looking to minimize fat in other areas of their body. If you set up a one-on-one consultation in our Rochester office, we will be able to determine whether or not you are an ideal candidate for CoolSculpting®.
Freezing fat cells: Coolsculpting claims to remove fat without surgery
How is CoolSculpting® Performed?
CoolSculpting® is a simple outpatient procedure. Once you are cleared for the treatment, you will come in for an appointment that can be completed in as little as 1 to 3 hours. There will be no anesthesia, injections, or incisions.
You and your doctor will have agreed upon the areas to be treated prior to the day of your procedure. When the treatment begins, the CoolSculpting® device will be placed upon one of the areas and then activated. This will pull the fatty tissues up between the device’s cooling panels, enabling the device to freeze fat cells. You will experience a sensation of intense coldness, along with some pulling and pressure.
Discomfort is minimal and temporary. There can be side effects, including redness, tenderness, bruising, swelling, itching, cramping, and numbness. Little to no downtime is needed after treatment. You can resume your usual activities without interruption, although you may need to adjust for any side effects.
Full results are typically seen within two months. You may notice reduced fat bulges within a few weeks. Undergoing multiple CoolSculpting® sessions usually produces stronger results. Visual results are gradual as your body will need time to dispose of the fat cells killed during CoolSculpting®. So long as you do not gain additional weight after the procedure, your results will be long term.
