CoolSculpting uses fat-freezing technology to remove stubborn fat and create a slimmer, more attractive figure. As the cooling triggers the natural shedding of fat cells by your body, the results of CoolSculpting mirror the look of natural weight loss.
It is the only FDA-approved non-invasive body contouring treatment available on the market! CoolSculpting can create a more sculpted look with results that are visible and long-lasting.
How does CoolSculpting work?
CoolSculpting was discovered by chance by Harvard Scientists when it was noticed that certain levels of cold, when applied to fat, had the side effect of reducing the number of fat cells in that area. With further research, the process of cryolipolysis was developed – the technology behind CoolSculpting. It has been clinically proven that fat cells can be crystalized and destroyed at a specific temperature, with no impact upon the surrounding cells.
When CoolSculpting is used to contour your figure, the treatment device pulls the fatty area into it with suction, then cools the area to a temperature that is specifically calculated to affect only fat cells. Once the fat cells are frozen, your body sheds them naturally.
What is the treatment like?
When you arrive for your CoolSculpting treatment you will rest comfortably in an adjustable chair or treatment bed. The CoolSculpting treatment panel is placed on the fatty zone you want to trim, with gentle suction drawing the area to be treated into the device. The CoolSculpting controlled cooling then does its magic. No anesthesia is needed, as the cooling effect has the advantage of numbing the area being treated. Your treatment session may take from one to three hours, depending on size and number of fatty zones you want to trim away.
Once the fat cells are crystalized by the cold emitted from the CoolSculpting treatment device, your body starts the process of naturally flushing out the damaged fat cells.
Watch fat melt away with CoolSculpting.
CoolSculpting has been proven to lead to a reduction of up to 25% of the excess fat in a treated area. Imagine a quarter of the fat disappearing, without incisions, anesthesia, or a long recovery! This groundbreaking treatment is offered by Dr. Marc Malek at his private, luxury clinic in Scottdale, where you will be under the care of a plastic surgeon who is widely recognized as being among the finest aesthetic practitioners in the state of Arizona and beyond.
How safe is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a safe procedure! CoolSculpting is non-invasive and involves no incisions or a recovery time. The controlled cooling harms only the unwanted fat cells, leaving the healthy skin and other body tissues unharmed. When CoolSculpting was approved by the FDA in 2010, it was originally cleared for use on the flanks (love handles), but now it has been approved to treat a wider range of areas, including treating unsightly double chin fat. CoolSculpting has been demonstrating its safety for almost a decade and has been used on millions of people successfully – why not you?
How long-lasting are the results?
The results of CoolSculpting are long-lasting, as the fat cells that are crystalized and destroyed never to return. Not all of the fat cells are destroyed, so if you gain weight, the remaining fat cells will enlarge, but far less fat will collect in the treated area. Maintaining the best results is achieved with a healthy diet and consistent exercise. While CoolSculpting is not a weight loss treatment, there is no question that your body will appear slimmer, more sculpted, and more attractive – from every angle.
Which areas can I have treated with CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting has been approved for use on many body areas where fatty deposits can be lodged, including:
- Upper arms
- Inner and outer thighs
Am I a candidate for CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting can be the ideal treatment if you:
- Are within a thirty-pound range of your ideal weight
- Your weight is stable
- You struggle with fatty deposits that diet and exercise can’t resolve
If you have fatty deposits on your body and have tried dietary changes and exercise to no avail, you are likely a perfect candidate for this procedure. Although the best way to determine if CoolSculpting is right for you is to schedule a private consultation with us at our private Scottdale clinic. We can help you achieve the slimmer, trimmer, more attractive figure you want in a fast, easy, non-surgical treatment.
How long will it take to see results?
Results take place over time, with the first signs appearing at about three weeks after your treatment. The slimming effect will continue to develop, with maximum sculpting achieved in approximately two months, with continued minor slimming for up to six months. Your body needs time to flush away the dead fat cells, so you will need some patience to see the results, which are well worth the wait. It is a very rewarding experience watch your body becoming slimmer, day by day. Our patients love the results, and often choose to undergo another CoolSculpting treatment once they see what this groundbreaking treatment can achieve.
How many treatments will I need?
Some people achieve the slimming effect they envisioned with a single treatment, where others choose to undergo multiple treatments. Once you see the exciting slimming effect, you may choose to treat another body area, or trim away more fat from hips, thighs, buttocks, or love handles. You will need to wait for your initial treatment to achieve the final results prior to undergoing another treatment. Your body must flush out the majority of the dead fat cells, after which another CoolSculpting treatment can be performed. A slimmer, trimmer body? It’s a beautiful thing and can be yours.
