CoolSculpting® is the latest technology for gently and effectively reducing fat in targeted areas of your body, resulting in noticeable, natural-looking fat reduction in the treated areas. It is non-invasive, with no need for anesthesia or pain medications with no recovery time. Typically patients lose up to 20% of fat in only one treatment!
CoolSculpting® has long been a staff and patient favorite at CCSD, gently and effectively reducing fat in targeted areas of the body. During the procedure, a non-invasive applicator delivers controlled cooling, or Cryolipolysis, to target and eliminate fat cells in specific areas, such as the abdomen, thighs, love handles, and bra line fat. This exposure to cooling causes fat cells to begin a process of natural removal, gradually reducing the thickness of the fat layer.
We often follow Coolsculpting® treatments with our Slimspec device. The Slimspec is a radial pulse technology device that creates measured shock waves of pressure to penetrate the treatment area and break down frozen fat cells, helping them to metabolize more efficiently. When used in conjunction with the CoolSculpting® device, our office has found it provides a quicker recovery time and increased fat reduction!
