How CoolSculpting Works in Destroying Your Body Fat

 

Developed by scientists at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard University, the FDA-approved treatment, CoolSculpting, uses high-end patented cooling technology to eliminate fat cells. You don't need to undergo surgery or significant downtime.

Keep in mind that the reduction of pesky fat cells in the treated area offers noticeable, and long-lasting results!

Orange County CoolSculpting or fat freezing is a simple, 30-minute in-office fat elimination procedure, which can successfully help you achieve fat removal without undergoing surgery. With cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting can achieve outstanding and lasting fat reduction.

CoolSculpting in Orange County safely delivers accurately controlled cooling in order to gently and successfully target fat cells under your skin. Note that the treated fat cells slowly crystallize (frozen), and then die. With the passage of time, your body will naturally process the fat and eliminate these dead cells, resulting in a more sculpted and toned body.

During a standard CoolSculpting treatment, our CoolSculpting Specialist will place an applicator on your targeted area(s) and it will "suck" up a bulge of your skin, and work to freeze fat underneath the surface. Also known as cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting, is FDA-approved for various areas of your body, including thighs, abdomen, underneath the chin, bra and back areas, upper arms, and underneath the buttocks. 

During the treatment, you may feel an initial coldness and suction. However, it will quickly fade to numbness. Note that after the application, a lymphatic massage works to break up your frozen fat cells, which eventually die. Over time, your body eliminates these dead cells naturally.

It is worth noting that CoolSculpting isn’t an alternative to weight loss. Ask your trusted Orange County plastic surgeon for more information.
