What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is a technique which involves freezing of fat cells. Cool energy is applied to the skin, which induces a process called cryolipolysis of the underlying fat cells. In cryolipolysis fat is degraded and naturally resorbed by the body. Ideal patients are those with mild adiposity, in “stubborn areas,” that does not resolve with diet and exercise alone. Standard treatment areas include under the chin, the upper arms, abdomen, “love handles,” “bra fat,” back, and underneath the buttocks and thighs. In most cases 2-3 treatments are recommended for the most desirable results.
