CoolSculpting, a nonsurgical alternative to traditional liposuction, is a breakthrough technology that uses technology called cryolipolysis to eliminate fat cells in a patient's problem areas. This technology is useful for those that have fat cells that are resistant to exercise and diet. The fat cells undergo a precise form of cooling to target and kill only the stubborn subcutaneous fat and not the surrounding tissue. The fat cells are eliminated from the body naturally in the weeks following treatment. Dr. Matthew Barrows and his team of medical professionals at Dermatology and Skin Cancer Surgery Center offer the Zeltiq CoolSculpting method. This method is highly effective and FDA-cleared for removing fat cells on the abdomen, under the chin, on the back, in the bra area, under the buttocks and on the thighs.
It is important to note that CoolSculpting is not a viable solution for weight loss. It is a fat-reduction and body contouring procedure recommended for those at an average and healthy weight who have isolated pockets or bulges of fat that have proven to be resistant in the past. Patients should have relatively healthy skin tone without sagging skin.

HOW IT WORKS
There have been numerous studies regarding the results behind cryolipolysis. These studies have proven that after just one treatment, patients can expect up to 20% reduction in fat in as few as 3 weeks after the procedure. CoolSculpting freezes and kill fat cells, so in the weeks and months following the procedure, the body will naturally process and eliminate these targeted cells leaving the patient with a slimmer, more sculpted appearance. Once the body rids itself of these cells, they are permanently gone. It is important to note that after CoolSculpting, a patient should practice a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet and regular exercise for optimal results.
What to Expect
During a CoolSculpting procedure, a patient can expect to experience intense cold and pressure in the targeted area, but this dissipates quickly. The CoolSculpting device is placed on the area of fat where it will draw up the unwanted bulge in between the device’s two cooling panels. The sensation is comparable to a firm pull, but there should be no pain. In fact, during the procedure, patients are usually comfortable enough to watch videos or work on laptops or tablets, read or even take a nap. The length of the treatment depends on an individual’s particular needs but usually takes around an hour. There is no downtime associated with CoolSculpting.
