If you haven’t heard of CoolSculpting yet, it’s because this groundbreaking technology has become a trusted secret on the red carpet, in boardrooms, and just about everywhere in between. CoolSculpting has changed what it means to medically sculpt the body and get rid of stubborn fat–without ever needing to undergo surgery.
Though exercise and a healthy diet go a long way in terms of maintaining a fit figure, the body sometimes has a mind of its own. Especially if you have a high genetic likelihood of retaining fat cells, as you get older (even if you’re perfectly healthy), you can end up with pockets of fat you wish you could flush away in an instant. Now you can.
Dr. Parkins, a board-certified plastic surgeon, is incredibly excited to offer Madison & Milwaukee area residents access to this advanced body sculpting technology. Unlike more invasive options, such as liposuction, which are best suited to helping remove considerable fat deposits, CoolSculpting poses even lower risks of complications while efficiently reducing fat volume by up to 25 percent per treatment.
At Parkins Plastic Surgery, our entire expert team is here to help you feel and look your very best. We’re up to date on the latest in aesthetic medicine and pride ourselves on providing our patients the highest possible level of care.
Keep reading to learn how CoolSculpting works and the top reasons our patients love it.
How CoolSculpting Works
CoolSculpting is particularly useful for removing fat in stubborn areas of the body thanks to a process known as cryolipolysis. The basic premise is that when frozen, fat cells die. However, the surrounding tissue, muscle, and skin have a much higher tolerance to temperature shifts and remain unharmed.
Using a special patented tool, your CoolSculpting technician will literally freeze away fat cells in your chosen treatment area–and once the fat’s gone, it’s gone for good. All you’ll need to do is maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Results take time to appear and will continue to refine over a three month period after your treatment. During this time, your body is breaking down and eliminating dead fat cells, gradually and naturally flushing them out.
As mentioned above, CoolSculpting reduces the total fat volume in a treatment area by 20 to 25 percent with each session. Most people see results in as few as three weeks, though final results may take up to three months.
It’s important to note that this procedure is not a weight-loss treatment or an effective means of dealing with obesity. CoolSculpting works best on patients who are close to their goal weights and hoping to get rid of surface-level fat for a sleeker, slimmer physique.
3 Reasons Our Patients Love CoolSculpting
Since its official entrance onto US markets in 2010, CoolSculpting has seen a meteoric rise in annual procedures. Today, more than seven million procedures have been completed worldwide.
What makes it so unique? Here are the three top reasons our patients site:
1. A True Lunchbreak Makeover: Comfortable, Easy, and Fast
A CoolSculpting treatment requires less than an hour in total, often just about 30 minutes. From there, you won’t need to set aside any downtime. You’ll be free to head right back into your daily routine.
What’s more, the entire treatment process is comfortable, and we’re often told, relaxing. You’ll be free to spend the time reading, catching up on work, or just taking some time to yourself. You won’t need to do anything in preparation other than show up to our comfortable Oconomowoc, WI office.
2. Scar and Anesthesia Free
Thanks to the comfort and ease of CoolSculpting, there’s no need for any anesthesia, and thus no time spent monitored or in recovery. You also won’t have to worry about any scarring whatsoever. Though liposuction only requires a very minimal incision, this is a deal-breaker for some patients.
CoolSculpting provides an alternative, non-invasive route to a figure you’ll love.
3. Incredible Versatility
CoolSculpting can be applied to countless areas of the body. Some of the most popular treatments sites include:
- Upper arms
- Flanks (or “love handles”)
- Inner and outer thighs
- Back and bra fat
- Double chin
We can also target multiple areas in a single treatment session as we have two Coolsculpting machines to maximize efficiency. If you want to refine your results further, each subsequent CoolSculpting treatment another 20 to 25 percent of fat volume reduction.
