CoolSculpting

The CoolSculpting procedure is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that is diet and exercise resistant. The results are proven, noticeable, and long lasting; you'll look great from every angle.

How does it work?

CoolSculpting employs Cryolipolysis, a patented technology that uses carefully controlled cooling to reduce fat volume. This process does not harm the skin or other tissue and acts strictly on fat cells. Once the fat cells are treated, they are gradually eliminated through your body’s own metabolic processes, resulting in a reduction of the fat layer.

The procedure is non-surgical, non-invasive, and is tolerated well by users. No anesthesia or pain medication is required. Patients can return immediately to their normal routine, even exercise if they like. There may be some redness and swelling in the treated area, and possibly some bruising, which will disappear within a few weeks.

Why would I choose CoolSculpting over Liposuction?

Although liposuction certainly has its benefits and can give many people the look they want, there are a few reasons why it might not be right for every patient. Liposuction is a surgical procedure that requires anesthesia, incisions, and recovery time. CoolSculpting is a non-surgical approach to reducing excess fat in target areas on the body. A major benefit of liposuction is that it can address very large areas of fat and provide dramatic results, however many people do not want to take the risks associated with it or go through the downtime that come with invasive surgery. CoolSculpting provides a non-invasive alternative people can feel safe with and enjoy a beautifully contoured smooth look.

CoolSculpting Results

Changes can be seen as quickly as one month after treatment, with full results expected 60- 90 days post treatment. Your body will continue to flush fat cells for up to four to six months after treatment. Though normally one treatment is all that is required, the staff at Skinworks will over the expected number of treatments during your Coolsculpting consultation.
