CoolSculpting is the number-one most requested non-surgical fat reduction procedure on the market. The procedure touts the ability to sculpt and contour a patient’s physique with little to no pain, side effects, or downtime. While the CoolSculpting may sound ‘too good to be true’, Capital Laser & Skin Care is happy to say, we’re seeing exceptional results with the non-invasive treatment.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
Using powerful, yet gentle cryolipolysis technology, CoolSculpting effectively targets and freezes unwanted fat cells to the point of rupture. Over time, fat cells that have been broken down are metabolized and flushed from the body. Unlike traditional diet and exercise that simply shrinks fat cells, CoolSculpting works to reduce the number of cells within the treatment zone.
CoolSculpting treatments are generally quick and easy. Each treatment zone takes an hour or less during which time you can sit back, relax, and let CoolSculpting go to work. In clinical trials, CoolSculpting has been shown to reduce the number of fat cells in a treated area by 20-25%.
What Type of Fat Can Be Treated?
CoolSculpting is best for pinchable pockets of fat that are typically non-responsive to diet and exercise alone. The non-invasive procedure is FDA-approved for eight unique locations with clinical trials pending in many other off-label uses.
CoolSculpting is currently approved for;
- Inner/Outer Thighs
- Back Fat
- Bra Fat
- Submental Fullness (under-chin area)
The treatment works the same way in every area of the body to break down otherwise hard-to-treat fat cells. During your initial consultation, your Skin Care specialist will help determine if CoolSculpting is a good fit for you.
What Results Can You Expect?
Noticeable results from CoolSculpting can be seen in as little as 2-4 weeks. A slimmer, more streamlined physique will gradually occur over the course of several months as fat cells are flushed from the body. Once fat cells are gone, they’re unable to return on their own. Maintaining healthy lifestyle choices can prolong the outcome of your procedure indefinitely.
Depending on your individual concerns and end-goals, a series of CoolSculpting sessions may be necessary to get you the results you want. While moderate fat below the chin can be reduced with 2-3 treatments, it can sometimes take 4-6 treatments to contour the abdomen and flanks. CoolSculpting is not intended for significant weight loss.
I went to Capital Skin Care to get a procedure done. The staff was ultra-professional, very nice, and did an amazing job. They fixed my issue right away and followed up to make sure everything went fine after the procedure. The offices are beautiful too. I was very happy and would absolutely come back and recommend it to others.
