Slim and contour your body with CoolSculpting non-surgical fat reduction
Do you have stubborn bulges that don’t seem to go away no matter how much you exercise and watch what you eat? If so, you are not alone. Most people have at least one problem area on their bodies but are hesitant to undergo invasive liposuction surgery due to its risk for complications and extended downtime. At Braun Dermatology and Skin Cancer Center, patients in the Alexandria, Virginia area have a non-surgical option available that safely and effectively targets unwanted fat: CoolSculpting.
Freeze away unwanted fat
CoolSculpting is the number one non-surgical fat reduction treatment used by doctors. Using revolutionary technology, CoolSculpting works through a process called cryolipolysis that causes fat cells to freeze, die, and then be flushed away through your body’s natural elimination pathways. The CoolSculpting device uses controlled cooling to freeze the fat cells in the treatment area. It does not involve incisions, sutures, or anesthetic, making it a great option for patients seeking a non-invasive alternative for targeted fat loss.
Does it work?
Yes! CoolSculpting is very effective at removing unwanted fat without the side effects and risks of surgery. In fact, in a 2015 review of cryolipolysis studies, researchers found that patients lost an average of 14.7% to 28.5% fat in the treated areas. Additionally, no major health risks were found to be associated with the treatment.
Areas CoolSculpting can treat
Every person’s body is unique, which is why CoolSculpting is designed to be versatile and treat many common trouble areas, including:
- Upper arms
- Love handles
- …and more!
Treatment with CoolSculpting is comfortable and can be performed while you are catching up on emails, reading, or watching a movie. We will talk with you about what to expect during and after your treatment so you are well-informed and confident. The overall procedure typically takes about two to four hours, depending on the treatment area(s), and you can get right back to your daily activities afterward. Most patients begin to see results starting about three weeks after treatment, which continue to improve over the course of about six months.
