CoolSculpting© by Zeltiq is a revolutionary new approach to non-surgical fat-loss procedures. FDA approved and developed by Harvard scientists, CoolSculpting is a painless alternative to liposuction and other invasive surgeries that disrupt your schedule with recovery and healing time. If you’re careful about your diet and spend hours at the gym, but it never seems to look like you do, then CoolSculpting may be your solution. With visible results after the first treatment, you’ll be well on your way to the slimmer, trimmer, new you.
Love handles, muffin tops, and belly pooches are all prime targets for CoolSculpting. The procedure non-invasively eliminates stubborn fat deposits, with visible results after your very first treatment. Over time, you’ll watch your fat slowly disappear as your new body starts to show.
CoolSculpting is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese, or a substitute for surgical methods such as liposuction. Ideal candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. Dr. Fiorillo will determine if treatment is right for you during a one-on-one consultation.
The CoolSculpting procedure is very straightforward and quick, lasting around 45 minutes per treatment. The device will be placed on the target area, which will then draw up the bulge between two cooling panels. The sensation is likened to a firm pulling sensation. The area is then cooled to a point where the underlying fat freezes, and the fat cells die.
There is absolutely no downtime after a CoolSculpting session. On rare occasions, some patients will experience pain or discomfort. You can go right back to your busy schedule immediately after completion. This makes it easy to fit in a session during lunch breaks or any time that is convenient for you. Over the next few weeks, the dead fat cells will be eliminated from your body through natural processes.
CoolSculpting is FDA approved for use on the abdomen and love handles (flanks) and has been proven to be a safe and effective procedure. Side effects can include redness, bruising, swelling, tenderness to the touch, cramping, itching, tingling, and numbness. If numbness occurs it can persist up to several weeks after a procedure. Dr. Fiorillo will explain the potential risks before you make the decision to undergo CoolSculpting.
