We know you’ve worked hard to achieve your ideal body weight. A healthy diet, exercise, and maintaining healthy habits can go a long way to help you look and feel your best. However, sometimes unwanted fat sticks around and seems impossible to remove. Thankfully, CoolSculpting® can help you remove even the most stubborn of fat and achieve your ideal body shape.
CoolSculpting® is an in-office, non-invasive body contouring procedure to treat stubborn, diet, and exercise-resistant fat. It’s FDA-approved and clinically proven to deliver results, with little to no downtime or surgery.* Developed by scientists at Harvard University, CoolSculpting® is one of our most popular procedures, and it has revolutionized non-invasive body contouring. It was the first clinically-proven, non-surgical alternative to lipo, and it reduces fat and sculpts the body without any needles, incisions, anesthetic or cannulas.* Dr. Schwartz was one of the first doctors in the Kansas City metro area to offer CoolSculpting®, and Premier Vein & Body by Schwartz is also a CoolSculpting® Certified Practice.
Benefits of CoolSculpting® include:
CoolSculpting® is an ideal procedure for patients who exercise and maintain a healthy diet but need help getting rid of stubborn, pinchable, localized areas of fat. CoolSculpting can be used on the love handles and tummy fat, but can also be used for the inner thighs, flanks, hips, saddlebags, chin or neck, upper back, and bra rolls. Good skin elasticity is also important, and just like the other Precision Body Contouring procedures, CoolSculpting® does not provide a total weight loss solution. You must be committed to a healthy lifestyle to maintain long-term results. With CoolSculpting®it’s not what you lose – it’s what you gain.
CoolSculpting® combines the science of cryolipolysis with advanced proprietary engineering, to “freeze fat.” Its advanced cooling technology selectively targets fat and aids the body’s ability to metabolize fat cells gently and gradually, while sparing all surrounding tissue.*
When the device is first placed on the area being treated, you may feel some pressure and a localized cold sensation. This feeling typically diminishes quickly though. In fact, many patients read, listen to music, or watch a movie on their laptop!
Unlike some other technologies where the fat cells merely shrink down but, over time, return to their pre-treatment size, CoolSculpting® provides a long-term body contouring results by destroying and reducing the number of fat cells in the treated area – not merely shrinking them.*
CoolSculpting® treatments typically take up to 1 hour per treatment area. Dr. Schwartz will help you create a CoolSculpting® plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your session will depend on the number of areas being treated, and the number of treatments required will depend on your body contouring goals.
During your CoolSculpting® treatment, you may feel some intense cold when the applicator is first applied. This feeling usually subsides within 5-10 minutes, after which you can relax for the rest of your treatment. Patients may experience pulling, tugging, and/or mild pinching, as the applicator uses a vacuum to target the treatment area.
You should see a noticeable reduction in the treated area with each cycle or application. Results usually begin to appear approximately six to eight weeks after treatment, with the most noticeable results typically appearing after two to three months; however, your body will continue to metabolize fat cells for up to six months after treatment.*
The CoolSculpting® treatment is followed by a two-minute massage of the area to help mobilize the crystallized fat cells. There is typically some swelling, tenderness and redness in the area, and, occasionally, some mild numbness or sensitivity. These symptoms generally resolve themselves within a matter of days to weeks, and patients return to work and normal activities immediately or by the following day.*
