What is CoolSculpting®
CoolSculpting® uses a technique called Cryolipolysis™. This method was developed to carefully cool the fat, while not harming the skin or other surrounding tissues. The freezing technology has been developed to be safe, comfortable, and effective. After the fat cells are treated, they crystallize and are slowly eliminated through the body shrinking the treated fat layer. The procedure is completely non-surgical, quick, and results can be seen as early as 3 weeks after the first treatment.
Single CoolScupting treatment – results at 6 weeks with no weight change
What can I expect after the treatment
Most patients are able to return immediately to their activities of daily living, with no down time at all. There is often some redness that disappears in a few hours and some tenderness or swelling after a few days. Occasionally there is some minor bruising, itching, and numbness to the area, which can last up to a few weeks. Full details about the procedure and your recovery will be reviewed with Dr. Glicksman during your consultation.
