About the CoolSculpting procedure
With the incredible advancements that have been made, we are able to administer CoolSculpting without general anesthetics or pain medication. You and your practitioner will discuss exactly where you’d like to focus the CoolSculpting treatment.
During your body contouring procedure, your doctor will use a special vacuum-like tool. This device is built to safely remove the unwanted fat tissue. It gently suctions the fat up between two cooling panels. The CoolSculpting procedure works by a method of controlled cooling which targets the fat cells. The fat cells then break down and deteriorate.
After this, your body naturally processes the dead fat cells, eliminating them from your body. You may experience a cold sensation in the area being treated during your body sculpting procedure. This is absolutely normal, and should only last a few minutes, while your body adjusts to the temperature. As your body acclimates to the temperature, this cold sensation will diminish. Most patients find that they are able to sit back and relax, or even read during their CoolSculpting treatments. A standard CoolSculpting treatment can be done in an hour.
