Can the CoolSculpting® Treatment Reduce Fat Anywhere On My Body?
There’s something for everyone! CoolSculpting® is cleared to treat 9 different areas: the abdomen, flanks, banana roll, thighs, bra fat, upper arms, back, the submental (double chin) and the submandibular areas (below the jawline). Dr. Joel Schlessinger says that often times his patients are so happy with their results in one area, they come come back for more. Now that’s COOL!
I Don’t Like My Double Chin. Can The CoolSculpting® Treatment Help Me Lose It?
We’ve got some COOL news … There are now even more benefits to treating your double chin with CoolSculpting®. Not only can you reduce fat beneath the chin, but you can also improve the appearance of lax tissue in the treated submental area. With each CoolSculpting® treatment, you can lose up to 20% – 25% of the fat in the treated area.
What Happens To The Skin, Nerves And Muscles Near The Treated Area?
CoolSculpting® uses a unique technology called cryolipolysis. This technology enables precise cooling and provides safety by only affecting fat cells while sparing skin, nerves, and muscle. Dr. Joel Schlessinger explains that the fat in our body freezes at a warmer temperature than the rest of our body. This allows for targeted freezing of the fat cells and optimal results.
Is The Treated Fat Gone For Good?
The CoolSculpting® technology is really something amazing in that once the treated fat is gone, it’s gone for good. Keep in mind, however, CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss treatment; it is a fat reduction treatment. The CoolSculpting® procedure reduces the number of fat cells in the treated area, and your remaining fat cells still function as normal, being subject to getting bigger or smaller depending on weight gain or loss.
