It may seem like science fiction, but you can freeze away fat to reveal a slimmer physique. CoolSculpting® is a method specifically designed to lessen stubborn pockets of fat. You may be all too familiar with areas that don’t seem to shrink no matter how hard you exercise or how well you eat. Pockets that seem to be resistant to diet and exercise include:
- “Love handles” around the waist
- Excess fat under and around the knees
- “Bat wings” on the arms
- “Saddle bags” behind the thighs
- Abdominal fat
- Back fat
While certain areas of fat produce bulges that are hard to shrink with traditional diet and exercise, fat cells respond differently to outside stimuli than other types of cells. Due to this, many treatment opportunities have been presented. A technician trained and supervised by Franklin Skin & Laser’s onsite physician, Dr. Stephen Bengelsdorf, will apply cool temperatures precisely to the treatment area. Temperatures are controlled via the applicator, which assures patient comfort.
As the procedure has evolved, different applicators have been introduced. The applicators are designed to isolate specific areas of fat. As new applicators have appeared this has opened opportunities for more areas of stubborn fat to be treated.
What to expect post-treatment
CoolSculpting® works as the cooling reduce treated fat cells gradually. Within approximately 8 to 12 weeks, the body will naturally lessen treated fat. What is left behind is a more lean and toned body. This treatment is particularly attractive because once the fat cells are reduced in the targeted area new fat cells do not form.
It is important to maintain healthy habits and a healthy weight, because fat cells can still grow in other parts of the body that were not treated by the CoolSculpting® technique. It is also important to keep in mind that CoolSculpting® is not a substitute for weight loss. You may be an ideal candidate if you remain within a healthy weight range, yet have a few annoying spots that don’t budge with diet or exercise.
Franklin Skin & Laser also offers other non-invasive approaches to trim and tighten, including Exilis™. This treatment uses radio frequency energy to lessen fat and tighten skin on the body and face, including the jawline and neck.
