CoolSculpting by Zeltiq™ (a.k.a Cryolipolysis)
....the cool way to reduce fat
CoolSculpting Before and After Pictures
The CoolSculpting by Zeltiq™ is a new, non-invasive way to gently and effectively reduce fat in targeted areas of the body that results in a noticeable, natural-looking fat reduction in the treated areas. What makes the Cool Scultping procedure different is that it uses advanced cooling technology to selectively target fat bulges and eliminate fat cells through a gradual process that does not harm the surrounding tissues. This procedure can reduce unwanted abdominal fat, love handles (flanks), and back fat.
CoolSculpting Before and After Pictures
Unlike traditional invasive surgical procedures, the CoolSculpting procedure is non-invasive with no needles and no need for surgical incisions. During the procedure, a non-invasive applicator is applied to the skin surface to deliver precisely controlled cooling to target and eliminate fat cells in specific areas of the body. As they are exposed to cooling, the fat cells begin a process of natural cell removal. The fat cells in the treated area are gradually eliminated through the body's normal metabolic processes, similar to how fat from food is eliminated. The result is a reduction in fat bulges that is visible in most patients in about two to four months.
Frequently Asked Questions
During the procedure, a non-invasive applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling to target and eliminate fat cells in specific areas of your body.
The exposure to cooling causes the fat cells to begin a process of natural removal, which gradually reduces the thickness of the fat layer. The fat cells in the treated area are gently eliminated through the body’s normal metabolic processes, similar to how fat from food is eliminated.
The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-invasive, which allows immediate return to normal activities such as work or exercise. Redness may appear in the treated area, and may last from a few minutes to a few hours. Some localized bruising may occur, which clears within a few weeks. Many patients experience a temporary dulling of sensation in the treated area lasting one to eight weeks.
The procedure is comfortable for most patients. No anesthesia and/or pain medication was needed during treatment in any patients in clinical trials. Typically patients are comfortable enough to read, work on their laptop computers, listen to music on headphones, or simply relax during the procedure.
Procedure time can be two hours or more depending on the size of the area to be treated. During your consultation, Dr. Rapaport will discuss how long your procedure will take and how much time you should allow for your office visit.
There is no recovery time after the procedure. You may resume your normal activities on the same day as your procedure, including work and exercise.
In properly selected patients, the Cool Sclpting procedure results in a noticeable, measurable reduction in fat bulges in two to four months. At that time, you and your doctor can meet to assess your cosmetic improvement and consider additional CoolSculpting procedures to achieve greater fat reduction.
Two to four months after your initial procedure, you and your doctor can meet to assess your cosmetic improvement and consider additional CoolSculpting to achieve greater fat reduction.
Patients experiencing fat layer reduction show persistent results at least six months after the CoolSculpting procedure. Longer-term studies have not been completed. The elimination of fat cells as a result of the procedure is expected to last about as long as fat cells removed by invasive procedures such as liposuction.
The controlled cooling of the procedure targets and eliminates only fat cells. Other treatment modalities such as lasers, radiofrequency, and focused ultrasound affect fat cells and may affect other adjacent tissue in a way that is not comparable to the CoolSculpting method of cryolipolysis.
With this non-invasive procedure, there are no needles, no incisions, no need for anesthesia or pain medications, and no recovery time. The CoolSculpting procedure is comfortable for most patients; they can read, work on their laptop computer, listen to music or just relax. Most patients typically resume their routine activities, including returning to work and exercise regimens on the same day as the procedure.
