Do you have a stubborn layer of fat that refuses to budge, despite months of exercising and dieting? CoolSculpting, a non-invasive treatment, targets love handles and other fat deposits. Bexley, OH, dermatologist Dr. Jill Fichtel of Bexley Dermatology discuss how CoolSculpting works.
CoolSculpting targets fat cells
Coolsculpting uses innovative technology that gets rid of fat cells by freezing them. The crystallized fat cells are then metabolized and eliminated by your body. Coolsculpting only targets fat cells and doesn't use temperatures low enough to damage healthy cells. Once the fat cells are gone, you'll enjoy a more sculpted appearance.
Coolsculpting treatments offer impressive results
Fat deposits decrease by about 20 percent every time you have a CoolSculpting treatment. Because it takes a little while for your body to eliminate the fat cells, you may seem some difference about three or four weeks after treatment.
CoolSculpting is a good choice if you're concerned about love handles, back fat, abdominal fat deposits, fat in your flank, muffin top or rolls under your buttocks. Do you hate your double chin? CoolSculpting can get rid of the fat and make your neck look more svelte. The treatment offers a simple way to improve the appearance of your legs, too, and can be used to remove fat from your outer and inner thighs.
What does CoolSculpting feel like?
You'll definitely feel the cold during a CoolSculpting treatment, but most patients don't find the treatment uncomfortable. In fact, many find that treatments offer the perfect time to do a little reading or even answer a few work emails. When you visit our Bexley office for a treatment, a thin layer of gel will be applied to your skin before treatment begins. Because the CoolSculpting applicator uses vacuum suction to hold the treated area in place, you may notice a little tugging or pinching. After the initial burst of cold, your skin will gradually become numb. Treatments last between one to three hours, depending on the number of areas treated.
CoolSculpting can help you finally get rid of unattractive fat. Call Bexley, OH, dermatologists Drs. Matthew Zirwas and Jill Fichtel of Bexley Dermatology at (614) 947-1716 to schedule an appointment.
