You work hard at your exercise routine, you eat right, and you are happy with your weight, but are still plagued by stubborn problem areas. Whether it’s love handles, or back fat that simply won’t go away, we understand your frustration. For patients in Chicago, IL who are looking for a little “extra assistance,” we offer CoolSculpting, an FDA- approved body sculpting treatment that can help patients eliminate stubborn fat for good.
What is CoolSculpting?
It’s an alternative to liposuction that is ideal for patients with a small amount of hard to remove fat. It’s a non-invasive, in-office procedure that can be completed in about an hour. CoolSculpting requires no anesthesia and no downtime, so you are free to go on with your day after treatment.
How does it work?
CoolSculpting utilizes a freezing method called Cryolipolysis. It selectively targets and freezes fat cells through a cooling device that is placed on the desired area.
Patients will notice some pressure and tightness initially, but the area will soon become numb and patients will experience minimal to no discomfort. Many patients work on their computer, read, or even take a nap during their procedure.
As the CoolSculpting system freezes the fat cells, they are destroyed and eliminated through the body’s natural metabolic system.
Am I candidate for CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is not a weight loss method. Ideal candidates are close to their ideal weight with small “problem” areas that are resistant to nutrition and exercise.
How soon will I see results?
Most patients notice a reduction in fat in the area in as few as three weeks. The most dramatic results are noticed after about three months. Patients will continue to see a decline in fat in for about six months as the body eliminates those cells. To learn more, call 855-400-3818.
