Looking for a way to reshape your curves? Want a fat-reducing, body-contouring treatment that doesn’t require surgery, needles, or a long recovery time? Consider CoolSculpting®. Michael J. Grossman, MD, Medical Director at OC Wellness in Irvine, California, understands your frustration regarding those stubborn pockets of fat on the hips, abdomen, and thighs that no amount of diet or exercise can budge. He recommends you schedule a visit at OC Wellness today to discover whether you’re a good candidate for body contouring with CoolSculpting. Call the office to book your appointment.
CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared, fat-reducing procedure that uses controlled cooling to crystallize (freeze) and destroy fat cells. The process only targets fat cells, leaving surrounding skin and other soft tissue structures unharmed. With CoolSculpting, there are no lasers, vacuum devices, needles, or surgery required to achieve the sculpted curves you desire.
CoolSculpting is not meant for overall weight loss. Rather, it targets those stubborn pockets of fat that defy the most rigid diets and strenuous exercise programs. As the fat cells break apart, they’re removed by your body as waste. Those bulges of fat at your waist, thighs, and other treatment areas fade away, and you’re left with a flatter, more toned appearance.
Unlike dieting, which shrinks fat cells but doesn’t remove them, CoolSculpting eliminates up to 25% of fat cells in a given region. So once the targeted fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.
Before scheduling your first session, you’ll need a consultation with Dr. Grossman who explains the process in detail, discusses your goals and expectations, and helps you choose which areas to target with CoolSculpting.
Generally, sessions last anywhere from 30-60 minutes, depending on the area(s) targeted for treatment. After the CoolSculpting devices are placed on the treatment areas, you’re free to relax as the system does its job. You can expect to feel a slight cooling sensation on your skin as the process begins but most of our patients report no true discomfort and spend the time texting, reading, or napping.
After the session, you can return to work or other routine activities when you leave the office. There’s no recovery time necessary.
It’s not an overnight process, but you can expect to see changes within three weeks. The most dramatic results typically occur after two months. However, your body will continue to flush fat cells from your body for four to six months.
If possible, we recommend you schedule your CoolSculpting treatment in advance of a vacation or other special event during which you want to show off your new curves. Otherwise, anytime is the right time for CoolSculpting.
