straight to work. When done by a trained Chicago
dermatologist, CoolSculpting can help you achieve your cosmetic goals in just weeks.
Targeted Body Sculpting
Prior to undergoing CoolSculpting treatments, patients and their dermatologists
must first decide the regions to target. Individuals interested in
should keep in mind that this procedure is not ideal for those with significant
weight loss needs. Rather, this treatment is meant to eliminate pockets
of stubborn fat that has not responded to diet and exercise. In many cases,
despite consistent healthy living efforts, fat around the abdominal area
can persist, and those with this type of fat can make attractive CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting treatments take approximately 60 minutes to complete depending
on the targeted region, and individuals who undergo this procedure often
find it a very comfortable process. Dermatologists provide CoolSculpting
treatment with the use of special equipment that emits extreme cold. This
device is placed on the skin under which the fat resides. The cold moves
through the skin to the underlying fat cells and freezes them. Once the
in-office procedure is complete, the CoolSculpting process continues,
as the body gradually absorbs the frozen fat cells over the next month or two.
The CoolSculpting procedure typically produces few to no side effects.
Some individuals may notice redness at the treatment site or minimal bruising
that alleviates in a few days. However, the cosmetic impact of their CoolSculpting
treatments will continue to grow. In the weeks and months following a
CoolSculpting session, fat cells disappear from the targeted regions,
making them more toned and taut. In some cases, people who choose this
cosmetic procedure may see a reduction of up to a half-inch of fat after
a single CoolSculpting treatment. In addition, it is encouraged that patients
can have follow-up sessions on the same regions for the maximal improvement.
These treatments are usually spaced a month apart.
