When diet and exercise just aren’t working for you, maybe it’s time to try something else. Belly fat, love handles, back fat, and more can all be successfully removed with nonsurgical body sculpting.
Body sculpting – sometimes called body contouring or body shaping – is a breakthrough technology that involves removing stubborn fat, without surgery.
At Elite SkinMD, dermatologist Dr. Rebecca Lu offers her patients the ability to use this state-of-the-art equipment to melt fat and achieve firmer, toned skin – especially in those notoriously difficult to target areas of the body – with CoolSculpting® technology.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting uses the application of cold to freeze and destroy targeted fat cells. It is cleared by the FDA to treat a number of body areas where fat tends to accumulate and can be unresponsive to the usual fat-reduction efforts such as diet and exercise.
It is a completely noninvasive method in which a handheld device with an attached nozzle is placed over the target area. Your skin is pulled up slightly into the device, where it is subjected to cooling technology that destroys subcutaneous fat, leaving surrounding tissue, nerves, and muscles unaffected. The fat cells are absorbed by the body and transported to the lymphatic system to be filtered out as waste – a process that can take a few months after treatment.
Not only does CoolSculpting kill fat cells, which are naturally expelled from the body over time, but it also tightens and tones your skin in the treated area. This way, you experience fat loss without any telltale saggy skin afterward. It’s a win-win for the new you!
What Does Body Sculpting Treat?
The most common areas we target with CoolSculpting body contouring include:
- Abdomen (upper & lower)
- Back fat
- Below the buttocks
- Double chin
- Thighs (inner & outer)
- Upper arms
Most patients experience up to a 25% fat reduction in the target area after a single CoolSculpting session. It may take repeated body sculpting sessions to achieve the results you desire.
No anesthesia is required during this in-office procedure, although there may be some minor discomfort when the treated area is massaged to help the destroyed fat cells be absorbed by your body. There is absolutely no downtime afterward – you are free to go about your day as normal after your CoolSculpting treatment!
