Lets face it. Most of us have areas of fat that that we’d like to get rid off. We try dieting, exercise, supplements, and a variety of weight-loss gimmicks. Yet despite our best efforts, some areas of fat just will not go away. Common trouble spots are the abdomen, thighs, love handles, chin, and arms.

Many people decide to undergo surgical procedures such as liposucution to treat these stubborn areas. While liposuction is definitely effective, it also has some disadvantages. Liposcution is a surgical procedure that requires incisions, anesthesia, post-surgical garments, and a recovery period ranging from a few days to several weeks.

The great news is that we now have ways to eliminate fat without surgery!

Coolsculpting is an FDA approved, non-invasive procedure that gets rid of fat with no incisions, anesthesia or downtime. Since 2014, millions of patients have been treated world-wide making this one of the most popular and effective methods for non-surgical fat reduction. It is great for treating pockets of fat located on the abdomen, back, love handles, chin, inner and outer thighs and the back of the arms. Coolsculpting can also treat the small “banana roll” that sometimes develops under the buttocks.

At Acqua Medspa, Coolsculpting is one of our main specialties. We pride ourselves on being true experts and leaders in the field. Our Coolsculpting technicians are highly-trained and certified through a special program designed to ensure our patients optimal results. We also have the latest Coolsculpting technology including state-of-the art equipment and applicators designed specifically for each treatment area.

Freeze Away Fat for Good

Unlike other procedures that try to melt away fat using heat, CoolSculpting uses cooling technology. The cooling process, known as cryolipolysis, destroys fat cells by freezing them to a point where they are no longer viable. Once frozen, the body begins to metabolize each cell and remove fat from the body, creating a slimmer body contour. Studies have repeatedly demonstrated 20 to 25 % percent reduction of fat after treatment and the fat cells that are removed are gone for good (those fat cells do not come back). The procedure involves no incisions, surgery, or anesthesia.

What Happens During Treatment?

During your consultation, our CoolSculpting specialists will describe the process, examine the areas you would like to treat, and determine if you are a good candidate for Coolsculpting. A good candidate has “pinch-able” areas of localized fat in one or more of the following areas: the abdomen, arms, thighs, flanks and chin. We will assess your body, design a customized treatment plan, and choose the best applicator for the specific treatment area. Photos are taken to track your progress.

Coolsculpting sessions are performed in the comfort of ACQUA’s luxurious treatment room. After marking the treatment area, a gel sheet is applied to protect your skin. The vacuum applicator (like a suction cup) is placed directly over the targeted region and gently pulls the skin and fat up between two cooling panels. The cooling process then begins freezing the fat cells. Most patients describe this sensation as “interesting” and “cold” but not uncomfortable.

The very rare patient will experience pain or discomfort.

The average time to treat a single area is 35-45 minutes. Many patients choose to treat several areas the same day. This works greats and is our recommended approach for maximal results in the shortest amount of time. During your sessions you can read a book, scroll through your phone, watch a movie, or simply relax and enjoy your treatment. Our friendly technichians will be there to keep you entertained and well cared for. Following your treatments you can resume your normal daily activities. Unlike surgery, there is no recovery period, bruising, or downtime required for healing.

While the fat freezing and elimination begins immediately during your session, further fat loss continues over time. Because the body must metabolize the fat in order to produce results, it may take several weeks before you notice a difference in your figure. Most Coolsculpting patients begin to see results after 3 weeks and it usually takes 3 to 4 months to see the complete effect.

Many patients require only one treatment session per area with CoolSculpting to achieve their desired result. However, more dramatic improvements can be obtained by re-treating an area a few months later if desired. If you decide that you would like further enhancement after your initial procedure, you can discuss your options with our CoolSculpting specialist at your follow-up visit.

Your results will look completely natural and produce permanent improvement in your body contour as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle and diet.

Are There Any Side Effects?

CoolSculpting is a safe and effective non-invasive procedure, with minimal chance for side effects. The most common minor side effects are related to the cold sensation and suction application to the skin. The treatment area will feel slightly numb immediately afterward along with a tingling sensation. This may take several days to resolve. Redness and slight bruising may also occur but should subside quickly. Overall, theses effects are very mild and you will be able to return to work or your daily routine immediately following your treatment. On very rare occasions (less than 1%) patients experience significant pain that lasts for days and requires medication to treat. It is unclear why some patients experience pain and in all cases it completely resolves. There have been no cases of long-term pain reported.

Is CoolSculpting Right for You?

The best way to determine if you are a candidate for CoolSculpting is by visitng with our CoolSculpting specialists at Acqua MedSpa. After evaluating the localized fat on your body and discussing your cosmetic goals, you will learn whether or not CoolSculpting is right for you.

Patients best suited for CoolSculpting are those who exhibit one or more regions of localized fat on their bodies that will not respond to consistent diet and exercise. Although CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss tool, it can help trim down particular areas and improve the contours of your body. You should be close to your ideal weight and have realistic expectations for your results. It should also be noted that Coolsculpting specifically treats fat. It is not designed to tighten skin. Therefore, best results occur in patients with reasonably good skin tone. Skin laxity that was present before treatment should be expected to be there afterwards.
