Stubborn fat. It’s a problem. Getting rid of it is a battle people just like you fight to win. But sometimes fat deposits are unresponsive to diet and exercise. Sometimes you can do everything right and still have unwanted fat in common problem areas. You might have heard of a solution to this problem — CoolSculpting. Does it work?
Scientists at Harvard University saw that some children who were frequently given popsicles got depressions in their cheeks. These scientists soon realized that the popsicles were freezing and eradicating small pockets of fat cells, thus causing the depressions. The idea to freeze targeted fat cells without damaging the skin or the surrounding tissue was born. Eventually, the CoolSculpting procedure followed.
CoolSculpting is a safe, precise, and controlled procedure that effectively eliminates pockets of fat cells in problem areas. It’s the only FDA-approved procedure of its kind. It’s commonly used to reduce diet-and-exercise resistant fat in the abdomen, arms, back, and inner and outer thighs. It can also target troublesome love handles, bra fat, and a double chin.
During the procedure, targeted fat cells are cooled and die. The body then absorbs them naturally through its normal metabolic process, thereby eliminating unwanted pockets of fat. Once these cells die, they are gone for good.
The science of CoolSculpting is proven, as is the technology. The treatment has been studied in more than 5,500 clinical trial patients. Over 5 million procedures have been performed worldwide with high patient satisfaction. And more than 100 peer-reviewed publications have been published by leading researchers and doctors.
CoolSculpting is about fat loss, not weight loss. At Dermacare of Hampton Roads, we use CoolSculpting + Radial Shock Wave Therapy. Our dual-modality system is even more effective than just CoolSculpting. You can see up to 24% fat reduction in the treated area — and an additional 10% more with Radial Shock Therapy — with full results obtained about three months after treatment.
