WHAT IS CoolSculpting?
Nonsurgical fat reduction treatments have come a long way in recent years. Among the most sought after of the noninvasive body sculpting treatments on the market today is CoolSculpting. This cutting-edge service is designed to mold the body into a more attractive silhouette by freezing and eliminating stubborn, unwanted fat. CoolSculpting technology utilizes regulated cooling (cryolipolysis) to freeze fat cells, which are then expelled from the body through natural functions. CoolSculpting can be performed just once or in a series of multiple sessions over a period of time.
At Prestige Institute for Plastic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Tamburrino is pleased to offer this state-of-the-art method to help patients realize their aesthetic goals without having to commit to invasive surgery. Schedule your appointment at our Doylestown, PA office to find out if you're a good candidate.
who can get coolsculpting?
While this treatment is known to be equally beneficial for both men and women of different ages, those who will benefit the most from CoolSculpting are individuals who:
- Are at or near their ideal weight
- Experience difficult areas of fat that do not respond to exercise and diet efforts
- Are not interested in or do not qualify for surgery
- Have realistic expectations for the outcome of their procedure
Some patients may see results after just one treatment, but many will require several CoolSculpting sessions over a period of time to achieve their fullest results.
how does coolsculpting work?
After your one-on-one with Dr. Tamburrino to develop your treatment plan, your first CoolSculpting session will be planned. During the session, a gel pad and the CoolSculpting applicator will be used on the predetermined area and the cryolipolysis process will begin. The cooling, delivered by the applicator, will target and freeze your unwanted fat cells. You will feel a cool or cold sensation throughout the treatment, but this typically does not cause any discomfort. Because the handpiece uses suction to pull the targeted fat cells toward the predetermined treatment area, you may also feel some pulling or stinging, but this is completely normal.
What to Expect
Since CoolSculpting is noninvasive, you will be able to resume your daily activities after the procedure. In most cases, you can return to school or work immediately following your appointment. Some side effects that may develop after the treatment usually include redness, swelling, bruising, stinging, and discomfort in the targeted area. These symptoms are short-lived and will subside in the days after your session. You can expect to notice results within three weeks while you will see the most obvious and dramatic outcomes 1 – 3 months after your CoolSculpting treatment has concluded.
