Millions of American men and women struggle with stubborn fat deposits that simply don’t respond to diet or exercise. Whether it’s the double chin, muffin-top, or bra bulge, these areas of unwanted fat are bothersome and frustrating. Many patients are left wondering how these fat sections can be combated.
If you think your only option is liposuction, then you are in for a cool surprise. The FDA has approved a process known as CoolSculpting®. CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive procedure that targets unwanted fat cells, freezes them, and allows your body to eliminate them naturally through the metabolic system. The process is called cryolipolysis, and is completed without needles or surgery. This fat freezing procedure involves no recovery time, and leaves no scarring.
The CoolSculpting® procedure can be performed at your dermatologist’s office, with no anesthesia required! First, your provider will identify and mark your sections of unwanted fat. The machine uses a mild vacuum to suction these marked areas into the applicator. Then, the bulge is frozen, permanently destroying the fat cells in the process. Over the course of approximately two months, your body will eliminate the frozen fat cells in the treated area. Studies indicate that nearly 20% of the treated fat cells are eliminated after each procedure.
Each CoolSculpting® treatment takes about thirty-five minutes to an hour, and several sessions may be needed to achieve your goals. At Derick Dermatology, we make this procedure as convenient as possible, and allow you to watch TV, read, or even work in the treatment room. Our staff will continuously monitor your status to ensure ultimate comfort.
