How Does Coolsculpting Work?

Surgical fat reduction has been around for quite some time, and procedures like liposuction continue to be extremely popular options for men and women looking to get rid of unwanted fat. However, there are those who are uncomfortable with surgery, or not yet ready to commit to an invasive procedure with the necessary recovery time. Still, they have that stubborn layer of fat that will not go away, no matter how many hours they spend on the treadmill, or how many burgers they turn down for a healthier salad.

For patients who have a couple of inches of unwanted fat, but don’t feel they are right for liposuction, CoolSculpting may be their ideal option. Be sure to call 845.565.7040 and schedule an appointment with Dr. Jonathan R. Fugo to learn more about CoolSculpting!

Freezing Fat with the Non-Surgical Method of Cryolipolysis

CoolSculpting is a cosmetic fat reduction treatment, performed by Dr. Fugo, which gradually decreases a patient’s fat without any surgery. How is that possible? It’s called cryolipolysis. Cryolipolysis is the process of cooling the fat to a specific temperature, causing the fat cells to crystallize and naturally be eliminated from the body. The fat is literally frozen to death.

With CoolSculpting, this process is accomplished by applying the cooling temperature to the desired treatment area using a specially designed, proprietary cooling applicator. The skin is kept completely safe while the underlying fat is brought down to the temperature at which the fat cells begin to crystallize. Over the course of 3 weeks to 3 months, your body naturally eliminates the dead fat cells, leaving you with a slim, well-toned shape.

The CoolSmooth applicator is a newer CoolSculpting device that is intended for the treatment of the thighs. The same cryolipolysis process helps to achieve sexy, sleek legs following your treatment.

Is CoolSculpting right for you?

If you want to get rid of excess fat, but are not ready for surgery, ask Dr. Fugo about your options with CoolSculpting. You can schedule a consultation with Dr. Fugo to go over any questions you may have about the CoolSculpting treatment. Depending upon your anatomy and aesthetic goals, Dr. Fugo may recommend a series of multiple treatments to achieve your desired results.

CoolSculpting is not intended for obese men and women with large amounts of excess fat who are looking for a quick shortcut to losing weight. Rather, it is for those who are living a healthy lifestyle, but are struggling to lose a couple inches of stubborn fat from the abdomen, hips, or thighs.
