The ugly truth is many of us have bulges of stubborn fat like muffin tops and belly fat. And as we age, gravity and genetics only make things worse. Those unwanted bulges contain fat cells that may be resistant to diet and exercise but not to CoolSculpting! CoolSculpting is the revolutionary non-surgical, FDA-cleared body contouring treatment.
The patented technology behind CoolSculpting was developed by researchers at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School. CoolSculpting uses controlled cooling to target and crystallize fat cells. After a treatment, the crystallized fat cells gradually die off and are eliminated naturally from the body. Patients are typically pretty relaxed throughout the entire treatment and tend to spend their time reading, listening to music, working on their laptops, or even taking a nap! Before the treatment begins, a cold gel pad is placed on the skin where the treatment will occur. This gel pad acts as a safety barrier between the skin and the machine’s applicator. After the gel pad is securely placed, the applicator is put on the treatment area and the machine is signaled to start suctioning. The patient’s fat is then sucked into the applicator, where it will stay in position for one hour. The patient can expect the treated area to feel cold and possibly a little numb. After the hour of treatment is over, the doctor will massage the treated area for roughly 3 minutes in order to break up the ice crystals formed in the body. After the treatment, the patient is free to go about his/her day as normal. They may feel a little sore or the treated area may feel tender to the touch which could last anywhere from 24 hours to one week. In the weeks and months following a treatment, remaining fat cells condense, reducing the fat layer which leads to an improvement in appearance. The patient will start to see results in 30 days and have full results in 3 months.
CoolSculpting is completely non-invasive, it doesn’t require cutting, needles, or anesthesia. During a simple consultation, SmoothMED will develop a customized Treatment to Transformation plan to address the patient’s specific areas of concern. This comprehensive approach may involve a single or multiple treatments and is designed to optimize the individual’s CoolSculpting results.
