At Spectrum Plastic Surgery, clients have access to the latest, most effective, and safest non-surgical body contouring treatments such as CoolSculpting. Cryolipolysis is the removal of unwanted, excess adipocytes through freezing. When fat cells reach a certain freezing temperature, they “die” and become naturally absorbed and expelled by the body. This is the foundation for CoolSculpting, which works by targeting unwanted adipose tissue and subjecting it to its ideal “freezing” temperature.
The roots of CoolSculpting were discovered in the 1970s when researchers realized that children who ate significantly more popsicles than their peers had less fat in their cheeks. CoolSculpting science and technology has advanced over the decades, and freezing away fat can now be used virtually anywhere on the body. It is even used to address the submental fat that causes a double chin. The results from CoolSculpting aren’t immediate, but rather reveal themselves in the days and weeks following each treatment. This allows the skin time to readjust to a newly contoured body and minimizes the risk of skin laxity and sagging. Because individual results may vary, it’s important to schedule your consultation so a customized treatment plan can be built for you and your unique needs.
