No matter how diligently you adhere to a fitness regimen, stubborn fat deposits and bulges in the belly, flanks, thighs, and other areas can prevent you from achieving the sleek, athletic body shape you work so hard to achieve.

It is very frustrating when unwanted body fat often will not respond to diet and exercise. As the Atlanta CoolSculpting leader, we’ve helped thousands of patients sculpt the body of their dreams.

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a non-surgical fat reduction procedure that uses controlled cooling to target stubborn fat that is resistant to diet and exercise efforts. It is a safe, FDA-approved procedure with proven, long-lasting results.

CoolSculpting Candidates

  • Those who are between 15 to 20 pounds from an ideal weight.
  • Those with pockets of unwanted fat that are diet and exercise-resistant.
  • Those searching for a non-invasive solution.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

The idea for this state-of-the-art technology began years ago when Harvard University scientists noticed that some children who ate popsicles developed dimples in their cheeks. These scientists determined that the popsicles were freezing and removing small pockets of fat cells in the children’s cheeks. The insight was that cold can target and destroy fat cells without damaging skin and surrounding tissues.

In an Atlanta CoolSculpting procedure, precisely controlled cooling is safely delivered to targeted areas of stubborn fat beneath the skin. Fat cells are frozen (crystallized), and then they die. Over time, the body naturally processes and eliminates the destroyed fat cells, leaving the patient with a more sculpted physique.

The beauty of this treatment is that, once the fat cells are destroyed, they cannot grow back. For our Atlanta patients, fat loss results with CoolSculpting are long-lasting.

How Many Treatments are Needed?

You will need two or more treatment sessions in our Atlanta office to achieve desired results with the CoolSculpting technology. The number of sessions will depend on:

  • Areas to be treated
  • Number of areas treated in a single session
  • Your personal cosmetic goals

A typical Coolsculpting procedure takes approximately 30 to 60 minutes to perform. Some patients have more than one treatment in a single session.

What Areas Can be Treated?

The CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-approved in the U.S. for removing fat bulges in certain areas, including the following:

  • Submental area (beneath the chin)
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks (love handles)
  • Thighs and nner thighs
  • Back
  • Arms
  • Bra area
  • Beneath buttocks

How Does the Treatment Feel?

During the first few minutes of your CoolSculpting procedure in our Atlanta office, as the cooling is initiated, you will feel the sensation of intense cold. This sensation dissipates quickly. Many people read, work on laptops, watch movies, or take a nap during treatment.

With some CoolSculpting applicators, you may experience a mild pulling sensation as the applicator applies suction to a targeted area. The area being treated typically gets numb within 5 or 10 minutes into the procedure. You may experience some tingling as the targeted area is massaged 2 or 3 minutes after treatment.

Procedure Description

CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis technology to safely and effectively reduce the number of fat cells in the target zone. It is a non-invasive treatment that allows for no downtime and does not involve surgery, anesthesia, or incisions.

Fat is safely chilled to a point where the cells are damaged without harming surrounding skin or tissue. During the weeks following the procedure, the body will naturally eliminate the damaged fat cells through the body’s own metabolic processes, reducing the thickness of the fat layer in the treated area.

CoolSculpting can effectively remove 20% to 30% of fat in the treated area.

Benefits of CoolSculpting

Atlanta CoolSculpting patients enjoy dramatic improvements and a range of benefits from the procedure, including:

  • Long-lasting results without surgery
  • Confidence in a swimsuit at the pool or beach
  • No more uncomfortable shapewear
  • Enjoy shopping for skinny jeans and more revealing clothing and swimsuits
  • Terms such as “love handles” or “muffin top” no longer apply to you
  • No need to obsess over problem areas at the gym
  • No need to hide excess fat on flabby upper arms
  • Pleasure looking at a more sculpted, trim body contour in the mirror
  • No more fad diets

Aftercare & Recovery

CoolSculpting can be slightly uncomfortable immediately after the procedure. Tenderness, slight bruising, and swelling could occur for the first few days after treatment.

With arguably the best CoolSculpting Atlanta has to offer, patients may return to normal daily activities immediately, with no restrictions.

Each patient is unique; therefore, results of treatment may vary. A consultation with one of our Atlanta CoolSculpting specialists will help you understand the benefits and risks.
