What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses cooling technology to freeze away stubborn fat deposits. It is able to treat many areas of the body, including the double chin, upper arms, abdomen, flanks, and inner and outer thighs.
During treatment, a gel pad and applicator will be applied to the targeted area. The applicator delivers controlled cooling to the excess fat, specifically targeting fat cells and leaving surrounding tissues unharmed. Once fat cells are frozen, they die and are eliminated from the body for good. During treatment, many people read, check their emails, or even nap!
Who is a Candidate?
Men who have unwanted fat in targeted areas that is resistant to diet and exercise can often benefit from the CoolSculpting procedure. While CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss solution for those who are obese, it can help to eliminate noticeable bulges in certain areas. Many men who are looking for a nonsurgical alternative to liposuction choose CoolSculpting. Overall, a consultation with a CoolSculpting specialist is needed to determine if this procedure is right for you.
Since CoolSculpting requires no incisions, anesthesia, or pain medication, there is little to no downtime needed. Results are gradual, with many men noticing changes in their body after three weeks, and end results after two months.
