CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared non-surgical treatment for getting rid of visible bulges of fat. The CoolSculpting experts at IYA Medical use the innovative body sculpting tool to eliminate the fat:
CoolSculpting may reduce fat by as much as 20-25% in the treated area after one session.
Though CoolSculpting reduces your total body fat, it’s not meant to serve as a weight-loss tool. To be considered a good candidate for the body sculpting tool, you must be at or close to your ideal body weight with a body mass index of 30 or less.
The experts at IYA Medical determine if you’re a good candidate for CoolSculpting during your consultation.
CoolSculpting eliminates the stubborn pockets of fat under your skin using a process called cryolipolysis.
During treatment, the CoolSculpting applicator targets the fat cells under your skin and freezes them, causing the fat cells to die without harming any of the surrounding cells or tissue. Your body then naturally passes the dead fat cells over time through its natural metabolic processes.
During a session, your provider positions the CoolSculpting applicator over the area undergoing treatment and initiates the device. You may feel a firm pull as the device gently draws your fatty tissue up between the two cooling panels, followed by a cold sensation that resolves quickly.
Your treatment takes about an hour, and your IYA Medical provider encourages you to spend the time reading, working on your laptop, or napping.
After your CoolSculpting session, you can resume your usual activities. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, or numbness in the treated area, but these side effects are temporary.
You may start to see the results from your CoolSculpting treatment as quickly as three weeks after your session. However, it takes your body about four months to flush out all the destroyed fat cells, and you may not see the full effects of your body sculpting treatment until then.
As long as you continue to eat a healthy diet and exercise, you can expect long-term results from your CoolSculpting treatment.
