Non-Invasive Fat Reduction Procedure
What is Coolsculpting?
Coolsculpting is a cutting-edge, non-invasive body shaping treatment that effectively reduces fat in areas of the body. The completely no-downtime fat reduction procedure is accomplished by the scientific principle of "Cryolipolysis".
This method makes use of cold to diminish fat cells in the body, thus improving the body's contour. Coolsculpting is a great alternative to liposuction and can be combined with other non-invasive fat reduction modalities such as Ultrashape for enhanced results.
What is Coolsculpting PLUS & Why is Coolsculpting at The Sloane Clinic different?
Coolsculpting is done using the FDA-approved, gold standard Zeltiq technology and not a generic platform. This explains why our patient results are consistently superior and predictably safe. In addition, at The Sloane Clinic, we go the extra mile to ensure that your results are further enhanced by supplementing each Coolsculpting session with skin regenerating and lymphatic drainage therapy. With Coolsculpting PLUS, we enhance the positive effects that you have been getting from your Coolsculpting sessions even further by ensuring that the lymphatic drainage of the surrounding tissues is optimal, thereby speeding up the clearance of the broken down fat cells. This will ensure faster visible results and a quicker recovery time. We also go the extra mile to treat the overlying skin with TLC by ensuring immediate and optimal delivery of skin strengthening vitamins to the dermal layers to stimulate skin collagen, improving overall skin elasticity and tone. This is why we call the entire therapy session Coolsculpting Plus.
How does Coolsculpting PLUS work?
Coolsculpting uses a non-invasive applicator to target and remove fat cells in localized areas on the body. The device is applied to the target area and then its starts reducing the temperature to attain the right coldness to selectively target the fat cells in that area.
The body responds with an inflammatory reaction that causes the body to dispose of the broken down fat cells. The result is a reduction of the treated fat buldge ("love handles" or "muffin top") that appears 2-4 months after treatment. The whole procedure takes 1-2 hours on average.
After the Coolsculpting treatment, we will immediately optimize the lymphatic drainage of the treated area. Simultaneously, we will deliver vital skin vitamins and nutrients to the treated area to rejuvenate he overlying skin.
What will I experience during the procedure?
When the applicator is applied to your skin, you will feel a sensation of skin suction. You may also feel a slight tingling or numbness as the cold is applied to the treated area. After about 5-10 minutes, you will settle into the procedure; most patients report that they are most comfortable from this point onwards. Patients can then enjoy other spa therapies such as massages and pedicures at this point.
Are there any possible side effects with Coolsculpting PLUS?
Most patients experience minimal side effects with Coolsculpting. Skin may appear red several minutes to several hours after the procedure. Occasionally, patients may experience mild bruising which will resolve in a few days to a week. As there is no recovery time for this procedure, patients can resume normal activities immediately after the procedure.
Am I a good candidate for Coolsculpting PLUS?
The best candidates for CoolSculpting are already in relatively good shape, but have some fat bulges present that are resistant to exercise and dieting. Coolsculpting is a perfect procedure for patient looking for fat removal and fat reduction without wanting to undergo a surgical procedure like liposuction.
How many treatments are needed with Coolsculpting PLUS?
The majority of patients undergo just one Coolsculpting fat removal procedure. For enhanced results, some patients undergo 2-3 total procedures for continued fat reduction.
What kind of results can I expect with Coolsculpting PLUS?
CoolSculpting has been shown to reduce the fat in the treated area by 20%. Additional treatments can reduce fat by another 20%.
