Like most people, you probably have a trouble spot on your body where you just can’t seem to get rid of a small pocket of stubborn fat. The team at All Island Dermatology in Garden City and Glen Cove, New York, knows how frustrating stubborn fat can be, especially when you’ve been working hard to lose weight and tone your body. That’s why we offer CoolSculpting® body contouring treatments. Call or make an appointment online today to find out how CoolSculpting can help you get rid of your unwanted fat at the Garden City location.
CoolSculpting is an innovative, FDA-cleared fat reduction procedure. It’s wholly noninvasive and uses carefully controlled cold temperatures to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise. The results are long-term as the treatment permanently removes fat from your body.
The CoolSculpting equipment delivers controlled freezing temperatures to your subdermal fat cells. As the fat cells freeze, their cellular structure is damaged, effectively killing the cells. Over the following weeks, your body flushes the damaged cells and other waste products through your lymphatic system.
You will talk to your provider about the parts of your body you want to treat and have an exam to ensure that CoolSculpting is the best treatment to help get rid of your unwanted fat. Your provider creates a customized treatment plan to help you achieve your goals.
When you have your CoolSculpting treatment, your provider applies a gel pad to your treatment area and attaches the CoolSculpting applicator.
During the first 5-10 minutes of your procedure, you will notice that your body gets colder. You may also feel slight pressure or a vacuum sensation during your treatment. However, you soon become numb and can sit back and relax for the rest of your treatment. Some patients read, nap, or even catch up on their emails during their treatment.
CoolSculpting doesn’t require any downtime to recover. You can get right back to your regular activities when your treatment is complete.
You may start to notice a change in your figure in as little as three weeks, although your results will be most noticeable within three months.* Your body needs a little time to process and eliminate your damaged fat cells to reveal your new slim and toned figure.
CoolSculpting is most effective if you’re already close to your ideal body weight, but struggling to tone up a trouble spot such as your abdomen or thighs. You can also use CoolSculpting to target fat on your arms, back, and buttocks.
