Dermatological team in the Loudon area explains the CoolSculpting procedure
There is an innovative body contouring procedure that has men and women worldwide flocking to board certified dermatologists – CoolSculpting. Created by two Harvard doctors, the treatment can deliver results such as a reduction in waist size and renewed confidence. CoolSculpting has gained popularity because there are no needles or incisions. Unlike liposuction, tummy tucks, or other surgical procedures, patients can return to work or resume other activities after a treatment session.
Many patients in the Loudon area ask Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, Inc. about the length of a treatment session. It typically lasts about an hour. During an extended lunch break, patients can read a book, watch a movie, or take a nap while we utilize innovative technology to freeze fat cells.
The FDA has approved CoolSculpting for treating the abdomen, thighs, and “love handles.” The treatment is ideal for treating stubborn fat deposits when exercise and dieting have proven unsuccessful. During the procedure, we place cold applicators onto the treatment area. Patients have likened the cold sensation to a thin sheet of ice placed on the localized area. While they sit back and relax, fat cells are damaged and then they are naturally eliminated by the body.
Some patients may embrace results after one treatment. However, in other cases, we recommend up to four treatment sessions. In about three months, patients can count on optimal results, which may include achieving the bodies of their dreams. Results can include losing up to an inch in the waistline, clothes that fit better, increased self-esteem, and a rejuvenated appearance.
