With so many body contouring options available today, knowing which is best for you can feel confusing and overwhelming. Before you schedule liposuction or other surgical contouring procedures, you may want to find out if you’re a good candidate for nonsurgical body contouring with CoolSculpting®, a safe, effective treatment that can deliver impressive results in as little as one treatment.
How CoolSculpting® Works
During your CoolSculpting® session, Dr. Green will use a special handheld device that delivers cold energy to the deeper layers of the skin where fat is stored using a process called cryolipolysis. This revolutionary technology specifically targets and crystallizes fat cells, leaving surrounding tissues untouched. Your body will recognize these frozen cells as waste and naturally eliminate them from the body, leaving the treatment area slimmer and smoother.
While liposuction is very effective and can significantly slim and shape the figure, lipo is still surgery and therefore carries the potential for risks and complications, as well as the inconvenience of a lengthy recovery. The fact that cryolipolysis is completely non-invasive and requires zero downtime are just two of the reasons so many patients feel CoolSculpting® is better than lipo when it comes to fat reduction and body contouring. Plus, Dr. Green has the new Coolfit adaptor to treat the inner thighs and arms and the Coolsmooth adaptor to treat the outer thighs.
The Impact of One Treatment
Most patients report a 20 percent reduction in fat after only one CoolSculpting® treatment session, a level of improvement that’s typically enough to deliver very satisfactory results. While some men and women may opt for a second treatment in the hopes of further contouring, the majority of patients find that one appointment is more than enough to meet their expectations.
