If you’ve heard about the concept of “freezing fat,” you’ve heard of CoolSculpting technology. It’s one of those treatments that sounds almost too good to be true, but it’s an easy, effective non-invasive alternative to liposuction for healthy, active patients who need help getting rid of stubborn pockets of fat (love handles, tummy, thighs, back).
How do we know it works? Before we bring a new technology into our office, we make sure that it delivers results. It’s our reputation on the line, and we like happy patients! CoolSculpting was no exception to the rule. So earlier this year, several office staff tried the device out for ourselves, and we experienced remarkable results. In two months, our esthetician Diane (pictured) had considerable slimming and reshaping of the inner and outer thighs. CoolSculpting works by targeting and freezing fat cells under the skin to eliminate stubborn fat without damaging the skin. These cells die and the result is a visible reduction of fat in the treatment area . Notably, by combining Venus Legacy (the technology discussed in the next section) with CoolSculpting, you can tighten the skin and minimize the appearance of cellulite.
As with many nonsurgical cosmetic treatments, CoolSculpting delivers the best results to patients who have pinchable fat and are at an ideal body weight. Too much fat — or too little — may not deliver the results you’re looking for.
