Get the Skinny on CoolSculpting
Now you can sculpt the contours of your body without incisions, anesthesia or downtime. CoolSculpting is the revolutionary body sculpting technique that removes unwanted deposits of fat from multiple areas. Instead of using surgery to eliminate fat, CoolSculpting uses an innovative cooling method that literally freezes fat away.
How does it Work?
CoolSculpting is performed on an outpatient basis, without the need for any type of anesthesia. A handheld device delivers controlled cooling to isolated pockets of fat during a procedure that is comfortable and even relaxing for the patient. Patients are able to read or even nap during the one-hour procedure.
During the procedure, you will feel mild pulling and pressure as the device pulls fat tissue between two cooling panels to efficiently cool the tissue. As fat cells cool down, they crystalize and eventually die. The body then eliminates the cells via normal body processes and you notice a significant reduction in the area as the fat seemingly disappears.
What can it Treat?
CoolSculpting works on many of the same areas of the body typically addressed with traditional liposuction procedures:
• Abdominal fat
• Fat around the waistline
• Excess fat on hips
• Pockets of fat on the middle and lower back
• Fat around the inner and outer thighs
• Excess fat on the buttocks
Dr. Stevens counsels each patient individually on the benefits of CoolSculpting to help them decide whether this procedure will best meet their needs.
Are Results Permanent?
Results from CoolSculpting treatments are not usually evident right away, but continue to improve in the weeks and months following the procedure. While some patients are happy with their results after a single treatment session, other patients may require a series of treatments to achieve desired results. Dr. Stevens’ experienced nurse practioner staff will work with you at the beginning of the process to determine how many sessions may be required for best results, so you have a full treatment plan before you undergo your first procedure.
Because CoolSculpting eliminates fat cells completely, the procedure is considered a permanent solution for unwanted pockets of body fat. However, if the patient gains weight after the procedure, new pockets of fat can form that may require additional treatment sessions.
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive way to eliminate fat deposits and enhance your body contours. To learn more about this innovative procedure, contact Dr. Leslie Stevens’ office at 310-556-1003 to schedule your personal consultation.
