Many of the patients at OC Dermatology are learning about CoolSculpting. In Orange County, the non-surgical alternative to liposuction is becoming increasingly popular as people see for themselves the results that are possible without the downtime or potential complications that are part of any surgical procedure.
If you’ve never heard of CoolSculpting, it’s an FDA-cleared procedure designed to tone areas such as the abdomen, flanks, and thighs by freezing fat cells through a process called cryolipolysis. These stubborn bulges resist exercise and the healthy eating habits. Just a few years ago, people who wanted to get rid of them had to turn to liposuction. Now, CoolSculpting can achieve similar results with treatments that can be performed during a lunch hour with no recovery time needed.
CoolSculpting works by cooling fat cells, which are more vulnerable to cold temperatures than other cells. The procedure kills fat cells without damaging skin or surrounding tissue. The fat cells gradually break apart and are naturally absorbed by the body. That process takes time, however, so the results aren’t immediately noticed. If you’re interested in having a slimmer, toned body by summer, I suggest you schedule a CoolSculpting procedure this month.
What’s really cool is that at OC Dermatology, we are one of the few offices in Orange County to offer DualSculptingÃ¢€ž¢, using 2 of the fat-freezing machines simultaneously on different areas of the body to provide more efficient treatments. But it’s also important to keep in mind that CoolSculpting isn’t a weight-loss program. Because the procedure kills fat cells, the results are permanent if you have a healthy lifestyle that includes regular exercise and good dietary habits.
