Why Is CoolSculpting So Popular?

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive non-surgical fat reduction procedure that has swept the nation. What makes it so popular? It’s an effective treatment that targets fat deposits that have been resistant to diet and exercise, offering patients an effective, non-invasive treatment for unwanted fat deposits.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

CoolSculpting targets fatty deposits with fat-freezing technology. Fat cells freeze and die at much higher temperatures than the surrounding skin, muscle, and nerve tissues. Since fat cells are affected by temperatures that leave other cells untouched, they can be safely and effectively removed. The destroyed cells are then reabsorbed naturally into the body, leaving behind a smoother, slimmer profile.

What Should I Expect?

When you meet with Dr. O’Neill for your Coolsculpting consultation, we’ll discuss your concerns, goals, and options. Coolsculpting is a popular and effective procedure, but it is not a miracle in a wand. It can’t make you significantly slimmer. It addresses stubborn pockets of fat, creating a more pleasing profile. We will take a look at your problem areas and discuss all of your options.

Are the Results Permanent?

One of the reasons Coolsculpting is so popular is that the results are permanent, as long as you stick to your diet and exercise routine. No weight loss technique can prevent you from regaining lost weight, but it is not a weight-loss tool- it’s a technique that helps eliminate pockets of unwanted fat from specific places on the body. It’s possible that you could gain the pockets back if you gain significant weight, but as long as you follow your fitness routine, the results are permanent.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

The number of treatments depends upon your specific goals and body shape. You may wish to reduce and eliminate fat pockets under your arms, reduce a muffin top, or smooth and slim your thighs by removing unwanted fat pockets with Coolsculpting. When you contact Dr. O’Neill for your consultation, we’ll discuss your areas of concern and help you decide if Coolsculpting is right for you.
