CoolSculpting

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a body contouring treatment that helps eliminate pesky fat cells that resist diet and exercise. The treatment is nonsurgical and requires little or no recovery time once you’re finished. 

Even though CoolSculpting gets rid of fat, it isn’t a treatment for weight loss. Instead, it’s intention is to reshape your body to be more aesthetically appealing with smooth, refined curves. The results look natural so friends, family, and coworkers won’t know you’ve had work done.

How does CoolSculpting work?

CoolSculpting uniquely uses cold sensations to freeze and kill your fat cells in a process called cryolipolysis. The device is able to target your fat cells without harming the skin cells on the surface or any other organs nearby. 

In an hour-long procedure, O. Jay uses the device to vacuum your skin and the underlying fat into the device, which emits a cooling effect. You might feel the cold sensation, but it quickly numbs the area so the procedure doesn’t hurt. In the four to six months following your procedure, your body slowly reabsorbs the dead fat cells to give you a slimmer and more toned body. 

What areas can I target with CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting can treat many areas of your body that tend to accumulate fat. You can talk to O. Jay about using the treatment to target these and other areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Love handles
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs 
  • Upper arms
  • Back
  • Double chin

Whatever your problem areas are, O. Jay can create a treatment plan to target and reduce them all to give you a body that you love. You may need to book multiple CoolSculpting appointments to meet your goals.

How long do the results of CoolSculpting last?

Once your fat cells are destroyed, they won’t come back. However, if you gain weight, fat cells left can expand. To maximize your results and keep your new look, you should eat a healthy diet and exercise frequently to avoid gaining weight.

No matter how healthy a lifestyle you live, some fatty areas linger and won’t go away without intervention. If you’re interested in CoolSculpting and want to know if you’re a good candidate, call Chico Dermatology or go online to book a consultation today.
