CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure by which fat tissue is cooled, causing the fat cells to break down and be eliminated naturally by the body without damaging the surrounding tissue.
CoolSculpting® is a clinically proven procedure that can reduce smaller fat accumulations in problem areas using a patented state-of-the-art cooling technology.
Approved by the FDA in 2010, CoolSculpting® is a safe procedure that cools unwanted fat cells, causing them to break down and then be gradually removed by the body’s natural biological processes. CoolSculpting® reduces bulges and pockets of fat in the targeted areas of the body without harming the surrounding tissue.
CoolSculpting® typically reduces the fat cells in the treated area by 25%. Retreating the same area (normally done six weeks after the first procedure) can result in a 40 – 50% decrease in fat. The skin is not tightened by CoolSculpting®. In your consultation, Dr. Kerner will give you her honest opinion whether CoolSculpting® can achieve the result you desire or if you are a better candidate for surgical liposuction.
Recovery time after CoolSculpting® is typically minimal. Most patients are able to return to their daily routine immediately after the CoolSculpting® procedure.
Immediately after the CoolSculpting® procedure, the targeted area may by a little firm and temporarily bruised for a few hours to days. This is an expected effect of CoolSculpting®. Swelling, bruising and tenderness can occur at the targeted area. These effects usually resolve within a week or two.
