CoolSculpting is a breakthrough, non-invasive procedure that uses cooling technology to noticeably eliminate fat without surgery. CoolSculpting® is FDA-cleared for the flanks (love handles) and abdomen and is proven to be a safe and effective treatment. First the area(s) to be treated are selected. The device is positioned on the body and then draws the bulge of unwanted fat up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm pull and pressure – enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be cooled most efficiently. As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, clients feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates. A typical treatment can last between one and three hours, depending on the area (s) that is being treatment. During the treatment, many people read, work on their laptop, or even take a nap. The procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically clients return to normal activities immediately. No supplements or pills are required and many of our clients feel even more motivated to actively maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle following their CoolSculpting treatment.
CoolSculpting is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese, or a substitute for surgical methods such as liposuction. Good candidates have noticeable bulges of stubborn fat in certain areas that have not responded to diet and exercise. There is minimal to no downtime after the treatment, although some clients may experience temporary discomfort, redness, bruising, swelling, tenderness to the touch, cramping, itching, tingling, and numbness. Side effects are temporary and last a few days to a week. Clients may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. During a CoolSculpting treatment, the affected fat cells are eliminated and as long as clients maintain their weight with normal diet and exercise, long-term results should remain stable. Typically, CoolSculpting treatments result in up to 50% reduction of fat in the treated area(s) and create a noticeably contoured difference. If you are interested in a non-surgical fat reduction option, schedule a consultation with Persona’s Beauty Consultant, who will address your area(s) of concern and design an individualized treatment plan to best suit your individual needs.
