Coolsculpting® – Non-Invasive Fat Reduction
Body contouring just got easier. If you’ve already improved your figure with diet and exercise, the pockets of fat you want to target are quite small, and you’re just not interested in a surgical procedure, we have good news for you. There is a new way to accomplish your fat reduction goals without surgery: CoolSculpting®. This revolutionary new treatment is available at Iconique Plastic Surgery throughout Tampa, Clearwater and St. Petersburg.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting® employs Cryolipolysis™, a patented method that uses carefully controlled cooling to reduce fat. This process does not harm the skin or other tissue and acts strictly on fat cells. Once the fat cells are treated, they are gradually eliminated through your body’s own metabolic processes, reducing the thickness of the fat layer.
The procedure is non-surgical, non-invasive, and comfortable. No anesthesia or pain medication is required. Patients can return immediately to their normal routine, even if that means engaging in strenuous exercise. There may be some redness in the treated area, though this will clear within a few hours, and some bruising, which will disappear within a few weeks. Some patients have also reported a temporary dulling of sensation in the treated area.
CoolSculpting® Compared to Liposuction
Although liposuction certainly has its benefits and can give many people the look they want, there are a few reasons why it might not be right for every body contouring patient. Liposuction is a surgical procedure that requires anesthesia, incisions, and recovery time. CoolSculpting® does not involve any of these drawbacks. A major benefit of liposuction, however, is that it can address larger areas of fat for more dramatic results. The areas that are suitable for treatment with CoolSculpting® are smaller.
“Coolsculpting is the best noninvasive way to contour your body. It is an in-office procedure that will reduce your fat cells at the site of a bulge. There is no downtime, no anesthesia, and no incision, which means reduced cost and no risk of infection. You may return to all activities right after your treatment, and over the next 1 to 3 months your body shape improves as the fat cells disappear. Coolsculpting truly works!”
