What is CoolSculpting®?
Coolsculpting is a non-invasive procedure that helps eliminate stubborn fat safely and effectively, without surgery or downtime. This fat reduction treatment uses controlled cooling to safely target and eliminates diet- and exercise-resistant fat. We are able to treat you in half the time as we offer “dual sculpting”.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
What Can I Expect From CoolSculpting Treatment?
You can reshape your body! We will develop a customized CoolSculpting treatment plan that addresses your problem areas.Dr. Potozkin understands each individual is different. That is why you will receive an individualized treatment plan tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
It’s easy to sit back, relax and say goodbye to stubborn fat. After we select the area(s) to be treated, the device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied. During your procedure, you may choose to read, check email, or even take a nap.
Ideal Candidates For CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is a fat reducing procedure designed for anybody looking to lose stubborn fat with little to no pain and no surgery. Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas where diet and exercise have not been able to get rid of.
It is important to keep in mind that CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight loss solution for people who suffer from obesity. Request a consultation at our office for a one-on-one evaluation to determine if this is the right procedure for you.
After we select the area to be treated, the device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied, and during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates.
At Dr. Potozkin office we utilize two CoolSculpting machines so that we may treat two areas at the same time. Your treatment is followed by a ZWave radial pulse therapeutic massage (at NO additional cost). The length of your session will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit.
Since this procedure is completely non-surgical, patients typically return to normal activities immediately. Often times, patients return to work after their CoolSculpting session is over.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
Because every person is unique, during your one-on-one evaluation Dr. Potozkin will work with you to determine how many sessions may be needed to achieve your desired goal.
Is Coolsculpting Procedure Safe?
The procedure is FDA-cleared for the flank (love handles), abdomen, and thigh. With over one million CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide, it is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for non-surgical fat reduction.
CoolSculpting Before and After Results
In the weeks and months following your procedure, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Many patients start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after treatment and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. However, your body will still flush out fat cells and continue doing so for up to four to six months after treatment. Results and patient experience may vary.
Will I Need to Follow a Diet or Excercise Program?
No supplements or pills are required and you do not have to adopt new diet and exercise habits. Many patients tend to feel more motivated to take care of their bodies and follow a healthier lifestyle after treatment. If you gain weight down the road, you may gain it evenly all over your body, not just in the treated areas.
How much does CoolSculpting cost?
The price will vary depending on your areas of concern, the number of sessions needed, and your ultimate goals. At Dr. Potozkin office we will help create a customized treatment plan tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
