Freeze Away the Fat with CoolSculpting®

What’s the coolest new addition to our practice? CoolSculpting®! This revolutionary body-sculpting technology literally freezes fat away—without surgery and with no downtime. It may sound too good to be true, but Dr. Movassaghi has carefully reviewed the technology behind the claims—it truly is safe and effective. Here is a review of the reasons we like CoolSculpting® and feel proud to offer this new option to our patients.

Cool New Technology

CoolSculpting® is FDA-cleared and clinically proven to be effective. How does it work? Developed by scientists from Harvard, CoolSculpting® targets spot deposits of fat and freezes them; after the cells die, they are naturally metabolized by the body. It’s perfect for those areas of the body that stubbornly refuse to respond to diet and exercise, such as the love handles. Hate your muffin top? CoolSculpting® can target the abdomen, too.

No Downtime!

And here’s more good news about CoolSculpting®—it has absolutely no downtime! This is what a treatment is like: the target area is placed between two cooling panels. The sessions are comfortable and last about an hour; you can read, relax, or use your laptop or tablet while you wait. There are little to no side effects from the treatment; some patients experience temporary redness or tingling in the treatment area, while some report mild bruising. You can return to all your normal activities—even exercise— immediately after a CoolSculpting® session.

Lasting Results

This is what has impressed us the most—CoolSculpting® works! The changes appear gradually, generally beginning about three weeks after treatment. The most dramatic results become apparent after one to three months. Depending on the goals you have, one treatment per area might be sufficient, but a series of treatments can be planned to enhance the sculpting effects of the technology. CoolSculpting® is not a temporary fix, either—the fat cells targeted during the treatment are metabolized by the body. The results should be stable as long as a healthy weight is maintained after treatment. A sensible diet and an exercise program are recommended to preserve your results.

Is CoolSculpting® for Me?

The ideal candidate for CoolSculpting® is close to a goal weight, because it is not a weight-loss treatment. It is best for moderate fat deposits on the abdomen and flanks, though it can be used effectively in other areas of the body. It is not used on the face or neck, however.

    Do you think it would work better than the liposuction did on me? If so what is the price for my tummy?
