A few weeks ago I was invited with a group of medical skin care patients to look at procedures and treatments that we may not have been aware of or had a few unanswered questions. Most of the therapies I had a knowledge of except CoolSculpting. No doubt this is a really cool piece of equipment and a cool treatment to receive.
Fortunately they had a client who was their mode,l so it was good to be in the treatment room and watch the therapy with direct feedback from the client. CoolSculpting is the only non-surgical body contouring treatment that freezes and eliminates fat from your body. There are no needles, no special diets, no supplements and no downtime. Developed by Harvard scientists, CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared, safe and proven effective.
During the CoolSculpting procedure, a non-invasive applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling to the treatment area to specifically target underlying fat, leaving surface skin and other surrounding tissue unaffected. When fat cells are exposed to extreme cold, a process of natural removal is triggered, which gradually reduces the thickness of the fat layer. The result is a noticeable and measurable reduction of fat in the treated area.
There was no discomfort at all, and the client spoke to us so easily ,while she having an area on her tummy treated when the non-invasive applicator was removed from her tummy , she asked if I wanted to feel the treatment area. It was just like touching an ice bag that you would put on an inflamed area. Freeze Detect™, it is the only cold-based, non-surgical body contouring treatment that is cleared by the FDA.
So with this procedure the patient can sit or lie comfortably and read, work on their laptop or even nap during the procedure. There are no needles, no special diets, no supplements and, most importantly, no downtime. It was amazing to see something so comfortable being given as a treatment. During the procedure, a non-invasive applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling to target and eliminate fat cells in specific areas of your body. When fat cells are exposed to cooling during the CoolSculpting® Procedure, it gradually reduces the thickness of the fat layer. The result is a reduction in fat bulges that is visible in the majority of patients in two to four months.
After the procedure you can return to normal activities on the same day as the procedure, such as work or exercise. The treatment area that we saw was had a slight redness with a small amount of localized bruising, the redness just disappeared after a few hours and the bruising cleared within a few weeks.
For the first time, patients who do not want the risk, cost and downtime associated with surgery or other invasive methods have a choice in CoolSculpting. So if you want to consider CoolSculpting for yourself an ideal candidate should naturally be relatively fit (within 11 to 22 lbs of their ideal weight) but have some modest-size fat bulges that are not easily reduced through diet and exercise.
If you have reach a point to consider a comfortable CoolSculpting® Procedure in New York book a consultation with Dr. Gervaise Gerstner 3 East 69th Street, NY, NY 10021 it’s a really cool treatment.
