Cool Body Sculpting with CoolSculpting® Fat Freezing
CoolSculpting is used to contour specific parts of the body plagued by exercise and diet resistant fat. The procedure works by delivering controlled cooling in order to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. This treatment is great for patients in need of a quick recovery time as it leave the skin itself unaffected. In contrast, the treated cells are crystallized (frozen), then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates the dead cells.
CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared, safe, and effective for targeting stubborn fat in the abdomen, thigh, flank (side), or under the chin.
FAQs about CoolSculpting
How much does CoolSculpting® cost?
The price for CoolSculpting procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of sessions needed, and your ultimate goals. Dr. Kang will create a customized treatment plan that is tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
What does it feel like?
During your treatment, a gel pad and applicator are applied to the targeted area. Applicators use a “vacuum” that draws the tissue into the applicator cup. You may feel pulling, tugging, and a mild pinching. Controlled cooling is then delivered to the targeted fat. During this time, you may feel an intense cold, but this sensation typically subsides within 10 minutes as the area becomes numb. Many people read, check email or even take a nap during their sessions! Afterwards, patients are usually able to return to normal activities.
Where does the fat go?
Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), the body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they are gone for good.
When will I see results?
While some patients may see results as early as three weeks after their session, more significant results are usually seen one to three months after treatment.
What happens if I gain weight down the road?
If you gain weight after your CoolSculpting procedure, remaining fat cells may enlarge as they absorb excess fat.
