CoolSculpting®

Non-Surgical Fat Reduction in Fayetteville, GA

Sometimes, no matter how much time you dedicate to your health and fitness goals, your genes won’t let your body lose those last few stubborn pockets of fat. This can result in frustrating bumps and bulges that can linger in places like the hips, flanks, abdomen, or buttocks. Even if you’re at or near your goal weight, a protruding love handle or belly pooch can keep you from feeling completely confident.

What Is CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting® is a type of non-invasive body contouring that freezes fat cells to get rid of them. There are no incisions or sutures, no anesthesia, and no recovery time required. Some refer to this treatment as a kind of non-surgical liposuction.

CoolSculpting® was one of the first non-surgical fat reduction methods developed, and it continues to be one of the most popular due to its proven effectiveness and simplicity.

What Areas Can Be Treated With CoolSculpting®?

Model

CoolSculpting® can treat various areas of the body to provide you with a more slender, toned appearance.

Common CoolSculpting® treatment areas include:

  • Upper and lower abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Back
  • Thighs
  • Below the buttocks (“banana roll”)

Many people experience stubborn fat below the chin, also known as submental fat or a “double chin.” CoolSculpting® can target this excess fat that seems otherwise impossible to eliminate with diet and exercise.

CoolSculpting® works to remove unwanted fat below the chin and jawline to provide patients with a more thin, contoured facial appearance.

CoolSculpting® Treatment Process

How Does CoolSculpting® Work?

How Does CoolSculpting® Work?

CoolSculpting® uses a handheld tool that is placed over the area of fat you want to treat. The device targets your fat cells with a technology called cryolipolysis, or fat-freezing, in which your fat cells are cooled to a point where they sustain damage and cease to function.

After treatment, your body recognizes the frozen fat cells as a waste product. The dead fat cells are then removed by your body’s natural waste disposal processes, thereby eliminating the treated fat.

When Will I See My CoolSculpting® Results?
