Completing a diet and exercise program is a huge accomplishment. And you should be able to enjoy all of the weight that you’ve lost and show off your new body. Unfortunately, even with the best diet and exercise programs, some of us still carry excess and stubborn pockets of fat.
Enter the CoolSculpting® procedure, an effective way to contour your body and target stubborn bulges that just don’t go away. Unlike more invasive plastic surgical procedures, CoolSculpting is noninvasive, quick, painless, and performed in a convenient outpatient procedure.
At Providence Plastic Surgery, Dr. Andrew Gear and his skilled staff are dedicated to providing you with innovative and effective services that provide you with the body you’ve always dreamed of having.
How the CoolSculpting procedure works
The CoolSculpting machine works by delivering specialized freezing technology through an applicator to areas of your body from which you want to eliminate fat and essentially contour any area that you’d like to target.
Our technicians apply a clear gel pad to your skin that will act as a barrier between the applicator and your skin, so you can rest assured in the safety of the procedure.
Each session generally takes around 35 minutes per area of your body, depending on what you’re having treated.
The CoolSculpting machine uses freezing temperatures to break down fat cells safely. Your body then naturally discards the fat on its own.
Though you could feel a pulling or tugging feeling from the applicator, the procedure is painless, and any discomfort you may experience is generally minimal. It’s also quick, with most appointments taking around an hour to complete.
Recovery time isn’t required. There’s no risk of damage to your skin cells or any underlying tissue. You can walk right out of your appointment and carry on with your day.
With CoolSculpting, you can expect to see full results within four to six months, at the most, with a 20% average reduction in fat.
The procedure is officially branded and FDA-cleared. Since its clearance in 2010, CoolSculpting has seen an uptick in popularity as well. Treatments have increased by a staggering 823%.
