Coolsculpting is a patented, nonsurgical procedure that reduces fat in certain areas without the use of heat; it helps patients win the battle of the bulge without hurting the surrounding tissues. Below, you will learn more about this new procedure and how it can benefit you.
How does Non-Surgical Coolsculpting Work?
During a procedure, an applicator delivers targeted cooling to the desired area, targeting the underlying fat while leaving skin tissues untouched. The extreme cold triggers the body’s natural fat-removal process, gradually slenderizing the treatment area. The concept beyond coolsculpting is cryolipolysis, which holds that fat cells are more susceptible to cold than muscle and other cells. With a two- to four-month treatment period, fat layers are gradually reduced.
No surgery, needles or recovery time is necessary. The procedure is completely noninvasive, and you can resume your normal activities right after treatment.
It’s safe. During a procedure, patients can read, work on the computer or even take a nap. The coolsculpting procedure can is done in-office, under the supervision of a highly-trained staff member.
It’s convenient. A procedure can last an hour or two, making it an ideal choice for an ‘early lunch break’ appointment. You can get it done and go on with your day.
The results are quickly visible. You can expect a readily apparent fat reduction as soon as three weeks after the first treatment.
Coolsculpting in Fairfax County VA County at Tamjidi Skin Institute is safe for most people, but after the procedure some may experience bruising, tingling, numbness and redness in the treatment area. The side effects are very minor compared to those of liposuction, which can require several days of recovery and the wearing of compression garments.
Does it Work Better than Other Procedures?
Other treatments such as RF, lasers and ultrasound affect the surrounding tissues, while CoolSculpting only eliminates fat cells. Coolsculpting’s results aren’t as dramatic or as fast as those of a tummy tuck or liposuction and it cannot tighten the skin. However, if you want to avoid the risk, recovery time and cost associated with surgery, it may be a good choice.

The most appropriate candidates are those with only ten to 15 pounds to lose, and who already exercise and eat healthily.
