If you’ve got a few areas of fat that you’d like to get rid of without surgery, it’s possible to do so. You can freeze those fat pockets away with the cutting-edge CoolSculpting body contouring treatment. But what parts of the body can be contoured with CoolSculpting.
CoolSculpting body contouring
CoolSculpting is the non-surgical solution to liposuction. It is a fast, relatively painless procedure that uses controlled cooling to sculpt the body, and best of all, there’s no downtime.
The cold temperatures of the CoolSculpting device freeze the fat cells, and the destroyed cells are then naturally eliminated by the body over the following months. Side-effects include redness and swelling, but these are usually temporary.
Most patients notice improvements within 2-3 weeks of treatment, but full results can take up to 3 months.
What parts of the body can be contoured with CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is FDA cleared for contouring the abdomen, inner and outer thighs, flanks, and also back fat and bra fat. The device also has a smaller applicator known as the CoolMini that can be used to treat submental fat, which is the fat below the chin.
Am I a good candidate?
The typical candidate for CoolSculpting is an induvial with pockets of localized fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. They should also be within 20 pounds of their ideal weight. The procedure is not recommended for people that are significantly overweight, or have a lot of loose skin.
