CoolSculpting is an F.D.A. approved non-invasive fat contouring procedure that freezes fat beneath your skin. This selective freezing process targets only fat and does not harm the skin or other soft tissue .The fat cells are fractured by the freezing process and are gradually eliminated through your body’s own lymphatic processes.The fat is ultimately expelled and the layer of fat is reduced about 20 to 25%. The clinical safety of this procedure has been studied extensively and published in many medical journals.
The procedure is non-invasive and therefore there are no incisions or anesthesia required. There is no downtime so patients can return immediately to their normal daily activities. Immediatletly following treatment there will be some redness and swelling in the treated area. In most cases,this will clear within a few hours.In some patients some bruising and numbness to the treated area is possible that may last a few weeks.The Cool Advantage applicators that Dr. Kopelman and his staff now utilizes has reduced the treatment time in half (approx. 35 minutes per application) and greatly reduced the incidence of redness and swelling so that you can get back in the action that much faster with fewer side-effects.
