Summer is almost here! Is your body ready to soak up the sun on the beautiful beaches in South Florida? The first thing people think about is getting into shape so they can show off their body. Eating healthy, exercising and drinking plenty of water are always at the top of the list to achieve a fit body. While this technique works for most people, others still have stubborn fat that just won’t budge no matter how many exercises they do. If you have a difficult time losing stubborn fat you should consider CoolSculpting™.

What is CoolSculpting™?

CoolSculpting™ by Zeltiq is an FDA-cleared procedure that does not involve needles. This innovative non-invasive, non-surgical treatment contours your body. The procedure freezes that stubborn fat you have been trying to get rid of and eliminates it from your body naturally.

How long is the downtime?

You will be happy to know there is no downtime involved. You simply get the procedure done and go forward with your busy day. It’s easy and painless. Best of all, you can schedule your appointment to fit in with your routine.

How does CoolSculpting™ work?

This non-invasive procedure targets underlying fat while at the same time leaving the surface of the skin unaffected. A standard procedure lasts about two hours. You can choose additional procedures if necessary. Long-term results are achievable by maintaining your weight with a healthy diet and regular exercise.

When will I see results?

Results vary per person. But keep in mind that several weeks after the CoolSculpting™ procedure is performed the fat cells that were targeted and cooled during the process begins a process referred to as apoptosis. This is the natural process of dying cells. Once they reach this stage they begin to shrink and disappear. The dead cells naturally flush out of your body.

Is CoolSculpting™ safe?

The procedure is FDA approved. There have been numerous clinical studies submitted to the FDA, all of them are validated. Based on microscopic and ultrasound assessment the studies revealed the CoolSculpting™ procedure kills fat cells in the targeted areas.

Since the procedure takes several weeks to start showing results, now is the best time to get started. This will get you prepared for those hot summer days on the beach. The procedure is FDA approved, requires no downtime and helps get rid of stubborn fat. Don’t hesitate! Get started now by making an appointment today with us!
