The Coolsculpting Procedure

There are many ways you can support your medical weight loss plan to lose weight even faster. Consider undergoing CoolSculpting near Mt. Kisco and the surrounding Westchester County. Since CoolSculpting destroys fat cells in problem areas such as the thighs, hips, and abdomen, it assists with both weight loss and body contouring.

How It Works

CoolSculpting uses a revolutionary type of fat freezing technology to eliminate fat cells from the body. The device was designed by Harvard scientists. It relies on Cryolipolysis, or controlled cooling, to target the fat cells while leaving skin cells and other tissues undamaged. Once crystallized, the fat cells die off. The body naturally processes these cells and eliminates them.

What Happens During Treatment Sessions

When you arrive at the weight loss clinic, you’ll discuss your medical history and your goals for your appearance to determine if CoolSculpting is right for you. CoolSculpting may be a good choice for you if you would like to resolve stubborn bulges of fat in certain areas, such as the abdomen and hips. If you decide to have this procedure, you’ll lie back on a comfortable exam table and the provider will position the device over the target area. While the device works, you can feel free to read, take a nap, or simply relax. It will feel a little chilly where the device is applied, but since CoolSculpting is non-invasive, you won’t feel any pain. CoolSculpting does not require a recovery period; you can return to your usual activities immediately.

How Many Treatments Are Needed

Patients often see remarkable results after just one treatment session. If you plan to address multiple target areas, you may wish to schedule more than one appointment. Depending on your goals, your provider may recommend additional sessions later on. It’s a good idea to wait to schedule additional treatments, since the full results of your first session won’t be immediately apparent.

When Patients See Results

In about three weeks after your first appointment, you’ll begin to notice improvements in the treated areas. The effect of CoolSculpting peaks in about two months after the treatment, with some continued improvements over the following two to four months.
