CoolSculpting by ZELTIQ is a procedure to freeze fat, requiring less time and money than traditional invasive treatments. Coolsculpting is an FDA-approved, non-invasive, clinically-proven, safe procedure that removes unwanted fat cells without harming the surrounding tissue for those tough-to-tackle love handles, muffin tops and other unwanted bulges. South Miami Dermatology provides professional treatment in a safe environment and you may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks, but the body is still flushing fat cells, and will continue doing so for up to four months.
Using a process called Cryolipolysis, this non-surgical fat reduction technology applies targeted cold to small areas of unwanted fat. This procedure uses a precisely controlled cooling method to target, cool, and eliminate fat cells without damage to neighboring tissue. The applicator is applied using a vacuum and once the applicator is secure the cooling begins. Your body turns on systems that break down and kill the fat cells. After a one hour procedure your body goes to work.
The cold temperature damages fat cells causing fat to be expelled through the body’s lymphatic system. It’s the solution to getting rid of small pockets of unwanted fat without knives, sutures, lasers, needles or even recovery time. Safe and effective, CoolSculpting® is FDA-cleared to eliminate pockets of unwanted fat on the flanks and abdomen, “double chin,” and more.
Due to the lymphatic system’s process of expelling fat, the results begin appearing about three weeks following treatment, with noticeable results in two months. Full results will be present in four to six months. While one treatment will produce noticeable results, many patients undergo a secondary treatment to achieve desired results.
You will meet with one of our CoolSculpting technicians in a complementary consultation who will take the time to discuss a holistic approach to your goals for reshaping your body. Together, you’ll look at your whole body from different angles—and then focus on specific areas where you want to eliminate fat.
