You may know CoolSculpting® as a system designed to freeze fat around the middle of the body and in other stubborn areas resistant to diet and exercise. Some dermatologists in Franklin TN may offer the procedure as a non-invasive alternative to liposuction and other fat reduction procedures. The Franklin Center for Skin & Laser has invested in a multitude of technologies, so you get the most convenient and comfortable experience possible.
CoolSculpting® as most practices may do it
Generally, dermatologists like Dr. Bengelsdorf will first determine your suitability for CoolSculpting®. Patients who can benefit from CoolSculpting® treatment should be within or around their ideal weight range. They may have localized pockets of fat.
If it is determined that you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting®, areas to be treated will be marked. Areas will be lifted and isolated using the CoolSculpting® device. This applicator delivers the cooling temperatures that ultimately crystallize or freeze fat cells.
Once these fat cells crystallize, they die and are gradually lessened from the body.
Different applicators are designed to treat different parts of the body.
CoolSculpting® The Franklin Center way
Dr. Bengelsdorf and his team are equipped to offer DualSculpting. This approach to CoolSculpting® allows two systems to treat two different areas at the same time. For instance, love handles and back fat may be treated in a single session. These treatments do not require long sessions at the office, because the applicators can be used simultaneously.
A highly personalized treatment such as CoolSculpting® requires an evaluation. Other characteristics such as the size of the patient help the doctor determine the type of applicator to be used as well, because these devices differ in size.
Since each applicator is designed to target a specific part of the body, you get the most precise and effective treatment possible. The use of DualSculpting may minimize the number of return trips to The Franklin Center for Skin & Laser office for follow-up sessions. While treatment plans vary from patient to patient, you should see changes in as little as three weeks.
The freezing and elimination of fat cells from the body is a process, so the most visible and dramatic results are noticeable within around 6 months following treatment.
