It’s the top-trending treatment that’s on everyone’s lips these days. But just what is CoolSculpting and how does it work – not to mention, how well will it work for you? Below, we detail the ins and outs of this innovative fat-freezing, body-boosting procedure; be sure to read to the very end to find out how the expert technicians at 8 West Cosmetic Surgery can double the power of your next CoolSculpting treatment!
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical procedure to reduce fat and contour specific areas of the body via a fat-freezing process called cryolipolysis. Proven to be extremely effective at reducing fat in areas resistant to diet and exercise – so-called “problem areas” like the upper thighs, abdomen and upper arms – CoolSculpting has gained a reputation for being both safe and successful. A popular non-invasive alternative to liposuction, the procedure has been performed millions of times around the world and has even received endorsements from celebrities like Molly Sims, whose two treatments yielded wonderful results.
Cryolipolysis is a type of cold technology that targets fat cells. Also known as “fat freezing,” cryolipolysis injures fat cells without any impact on the surrounding skin. After the cold is delivered via the treatment, fat cells immediately begin to die. Over a period of time (usually a few weeks), these fat cells are processed and eliminated through the body’s natural channels. Unlike dieting and exercise, which can reduce the size of fat cells but not their number, CoolSculpting actually reduces the number of fat cells lastingly. The result is a significant reduction in the overall amount of body fat, and a naturally enhanced contour.
CoolSculpting is performed with a flat, paddle-like device that, after being applied to the “trouble area,” is secured and remains in place for the duration of the treatment – usually 30 minutes to one hour. The procedure is performed by our expert medical estheticians, with board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Buonassisi on site at the clinic at all times. There is no anesthesia involved and no down time. You can resume regular activities the very same day, making the procedure an incredibly attractive option for those who do not want to go under or deal with a recovery period.
DualSculpting, offered exclusively at 8 West Cosmetic Surgery, doubles the power of each and every CoolSculpting treatment by allowing the fat-freezing process described above to be performed on different sides of your body at the same time – in other words, two machines are better than one! With DualSculpting your treatment time is literally reduced by half, enabling you to quickly get back to life.
