What is the CoolSculpting Procedure?CoolSculpting™ by Zeltiq is an FDA-approved non-invasive procedure that uses cooling technology to reduce fat in stubborn areas. The treatment is short and does not require invasive procedures such as liposuction. CoolSculpting was recently featured on Rachael Ray and Dr. Oz CoolSculpting is often used for abdominal skin tightening, fat reduction, and cellulite improvement on other parts of the body. The Cryolypolitic technology allows for a 20% reduction in fat with each treatment around the love handles, and results can be seen as soon as three weeks after treatment. Coolsculpting does not carry the potential risks or downtime of lipolytic surgery, and does not affect surface skin tissue. Dr. Berg is one of the first doctors in the U.S. to offer this newly developed and FDA-approved technology to help reduce stubborn or troublesome pockets of fat and improve your self-image.
What Happens During CoolSculpting Treatment?During your CoolSculpting treatment session, Dr. Berg attaches a specially designed applicator cup to the desired treatment area. When the procedure begins, you may feel a cooling sensation in the treated area, but little to no discomfort. During the procedure you can read, listen to music, work on a laptop, or simply relax. After treatment, you can typically return to work or leisure activities. The treated area may have some soreness and show mild redness for a few days following the procedure.
How effective are the results?
A single procedure can reduce up to 22% of the fat layer in your treated area. Two months after your procedure, we can meet to assess your cosmetic improvement and consider additional procedures to achieve even greater fat layer reduction.
The FDA-Approved CoolSculpting™ by ZELTIQ™ procedure can reduce the fat layer by 20 to 40%. Scientific testing has found an average reduction of 20%. If the patient's treatment plan calls for an additional procedure to get rid of love handles or back fat, this will be done after two to four months, depending on the doctor's advice. An additional 20% reduction can be experienced, resulting in a total fat loss of 40%. Final losses may be more or less, depending on the case.
How long is the recovery time?The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-invasive, so the patient can return to normal activities immediately. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, or numbness in the treated area, but this is temporary.
CoolSculpting takes very little time and and can fit into your daily life. After your CoolSculpting treatment you can typically get right back to your busy day. Additional FAQs about CoolSculpting.
