Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia only offers safe and proven procedures. When you ask, “Does CoolSculpting work?” the staff can enthusiastically answer, “Yes!” While this noninvasive approach to body contouring has helped more than 3.5 million patients worldwide finally shrink those stubborn pockets, as with all treatments, it’s critical to partner with medical professionals who are skilled and experienced with CoolSculpting.
Based on real science
The foundation of the CoolSculpting technique is a process known as selective cryolipolysis. Dermatologists at Massachusetts General Hospital discovered subcutaneous fat cells had more vulnerability to cold than other tissues do. In a controlled environment, fat cells could be precisely targeted and destroyed in localized areas, a finding that led to the development of CoolSculpting.
The power of cool
DANV professionals are trained to properly use CoolSculpting technologies. They deliver controlled cool temperatures to areas such as “bra” fat, back fat, thighs, butt, tummy, sides, or neck with FDA-cleared applicators designed to isolate specific treatment sites. You’ll know the powerful cooling is going to work when you feel the sensation of cold and pulling in the first 5 to 10 minutes of the procedure. Any lingering effects, which may also include blanching and bruising, are minor and resolve in the days or weeks following treatment.
This non-invasive cooling sets off the lipolysis process limited to the treatment area. Since this breakdown of targeted fat cells is a process, you should see a visibly more contoured shape in the two to four months after treatment as the cells are removed from the body safely, much like fat from food is processed.
The makers of CoolSculpting, Zeltiq Aesthetics, point to more than 60 peer-reviewed scientific studies that support the technique’s safety and effectiveness. Is it right for you? Call (866) 808-3140 today to schedule a consultation in Centreville.
