No Anesthesia or Pain Medication is Required
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 swelling and rarely bruising, which will disappear within a week. Some patients have also reported a temporary dulling of sensation in the treated area. Additional CoolSculpting treatments in the same or multiple areas may enhance your desired aesthetic effect*.
*Results and patient experience may vary.
What Is CoolSculpting?
Coolsculpting by Zeltiq works by freezing fat cells; a process scientifically called Cryolipolysis®*. This sounds impossible we know. Patients have reported losing up to 2 inches in a single treatment*
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
Cryolipolysis is the result of a groundbreaking discovery by researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital of Boston, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School. They discovered that subcutaneous fat cells are
naturally more susceptible to the effects of cold than other surrounding tissue*. These Harvard studies confirmed that you can freeze fat away*. When exposed to precisely controlled cooling for a sustained period of time, fat cells die and the amount of fat you have is reduced permanently*. Once these fat cells die, they cannot come back*. This is why CoolSculpting is like a non-surgical lipo (liposuction)*.
Depending upon the amount of fat reduction you desire, and amount of fat excess you are starting with, the treatment may be repeated more than one time to reach your CoolSculpting results goal*. After you freeze the fat, it takes a few months for the full result to become apparent*.
Dr. Mark Blake describes the evolution of CoolSculpting at the Clinic of Cosmetic Surgery.
