At TWC, we now have a cool new option for stubborn fat loss. Reclaim your figure and get rid of those stubborn “love handles” that won’t go away with diet and exercise alone.
Unlike surgery and other non-invasive methods of fat reduction, Coolsculpting uses cooling technology to destroy fat cells and restore your shape.
Coolsculpting treatments can be done in a couple of hours or less, with no recovery time, and no restrictions to your activity. The results of Coolsculpting are gradual, so your new body will take shape over the course of 3 to 8 weeks. It’s a simple procedure with dramatic results.
Ideal Coolsculpting Candidates
The best candidate for Coolsculpting is someone who is in relatively good shape, but has modest areas of fat bulges that they’d like removed. Some of the most common areas of stubborn fat that can be helped by Coolsculpting include the upper and lower abdomen (spare tires), the flank areas (love-handles), the upper arms (bat-wings), and inner thighs.
How CoolSculpting Works
The cells in our body react to heat or cold at different temperatures levels. The device presses against the area to be treated and then becomes cold enough to affect only the fat cells in that area. The fat cells are reduced through a process called “Cryolipolysis” and the body reacts with a response which causes the body to naturally dispose of the damaged fat cells. Since fat cells don’t regenerate, we see a significant improvement in the shape of the body that lasts a lifetime.
The CoolSculpting Technique
During the CoolSculpting procedure, your tissue is drawn into a small chamber with mild vacuum pressure. As the procedure begins, patients may experience a slight discomfort from the contact of the cold, which usually goes away after the first 10 minutes or so. After the treatment is completed, patients may immediately return to their normal activities including work and exercise. There is no pain and no downtime.
Possible Side Effects of Coolsculpting
Side effects of Coolsculpting are usually mild and related to the cold of the device which subside within 10 minutes. Skin may be red for several minutes to several hours, but usually resolves shortly after the procedure. All of these side effects are considered mild and generally well tolerated.
