CoolSculpting® is an FDA approved procedure that uses fat freezing patented technology known as cryolipolysis to safely and effectively remove unwanted fat without surgery or downtime. It targets stubborn fat areas, i.e. pockets of fat underneath the skin that are resistant to diet and exercise. The ideal candidate for Coolsculpting® is someone who is near ideal body weight, follows a healthy diet and exercises regularly but is unable to reduce fat in one or more of the 9 FDA approved treatment areas: fat bulges under the chin, jawline, thighs, flanks, (love handles), stomach, bra fat, upper arms, areas beneath buttocks (banana rolls). Please be advised that CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss treatment.
How does CoolSculpting® Work?
Fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than skin and muscle. CoolSculpting® safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin.
Fat can be selectively frozen without injuring other tissues such as skin. Over 6-12 weeks, your body naturally processes and eliminates the dead fat cells, leaving a more lean and sculpted you.
You Can Reshape Your Body!
Dr. Wong will develop a customized CoolSculpting® plan that specifically targets your problem areas. The number of freezing treatments needed for a desired result depends on the amount of fat present and the area of body involved. Our patients find the treatments comfortable. No anesthesia or pain medication is needed. Many patients read, watch a movie on their laptop, chat on the phone or even sleep during CoolSculpting®.
Dr. Wong pairs Zimmer Wave® treatments with Coolsculpting® as part of the overall treatment protocol for freezing fat. This combination increases the amount of fat destroyed and tightens skin. An applicator is applied to the skin, pulsing mechanical pressure waves into the skin layers; this increases tissue blood flow, lymphatic drainage, and stimulates collagen regeneration As a result, the collagen network is tightened, and the tissue structure of the skin becomes firmer. The Zimmer Wave® treatment is performed immediately after the Coolsculpting® treatment is completed, while fat is still frozen.
The CoolSculpting® is non-invasive, so you can typically return to work and normal activities immediately.
Over the next 1-3 months after your procedure, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. The fat is permanently gone as long as your weight remains stable. If you gain weight, you will make new fat.
The sooner you set up your consultation, the sooner you'll see results in the mirror—long-term results in those areas that have resisted all efforts through diet and exercise.
