Freeze Away Unwanted Fat with CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting Westchester

Are you struggling with stubborn fat that resists diet and exercise? CoolSculpting might be the solution you’ve been searching for. Developed through scientific research and cleared by the FDA, CoolSculpting offers a non-invasive alternative to liposuction for reducing fat in specific areas of the body. Let’s explore how this innovative treatment, as explained by Dr. Greenwald, can help you achieve your body contouring goals.

Understanding CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting utilizes a process known as cryolipolysis, where fat cells are targeted and frozen, leading to their natural elimination from the body. This method is designed for reducing visible fat bulges in various areas such as the thighs, abdomen, and even under the chin. It is important for patients to understand that CoolSculpting is not a solution for weight loss. Instead, it is a reduction technique for those close to their ideal body weight who want to eliminate localized fat deposits that do not respond to traditional weight loss methods.

The Procedure

A typical CoolSculpting session can last between 35 minutes and an hour per area treated, with some patients requiring multiple sessions to achieve optimal results. The procedure is generally comfortable; initial sensations of intense cold dissipate quickly, allowing many to read or relax during the treatment. Importantly, there is minimal to no downtime required post-treatment, making it a convenient option for those with busy schedules.

Safety and Efficacy

CoolSculpting has been extensively studied and is FDA-cleared for safety and effectiveness in fat reduction. Side effects are generally mild and temporary; they include redness, swelling, and sensitivity at the treatment site. These typically resolve on their own without further intervention.

Long-Term Results

Patients can expect to see changes as soon as three weeks after treatment, with the most dramatic results apparent after two months. The body continues to flush out fat cells for up to four to six months after treatment. Since the fat cells that have been treated are permanently removed, the results are long-lasting, provided you maintain a stable weight and healthy lifestyle.
