Many people work very hard to become healthier and get back into, or stay in, shape. The problem is that though exercise and a good diet is important to lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle, there are often pockets of stubborn fat that just won’t budge. This is true for everyone, particularly those that have lost an extreme amount of weight or those that have had children.

If you find that you cannot get rid of stubborn fat, but do not feel comfortable with certain cosmetic surgeries, such as liposuction, we have a solution for you! CoolSculpting is a great procedure that eliminates the stubborn fat without the need to go under the knife! Here at the Center for Cosmetic and Laser Surgery, our medical spa is able to offer this new procedure for our patients!

How does CoolSculpting work?

Typically, the procedure lasts for about an hour. It is so minimally stressful that you could actually go back to work after a procedure, or simply continue with your to-do list for the day. The reason for this is that the procedure is not surgical; it relies on freezing of fat cells. During the procedure, patients should not experience any discomfort and will be able to sit comfortably in a chair while a trained technician applies the treatment.

With a non-invasive treatment such as this, there is no recovery time required. CoolSculpting is also an FDA approved method of fat freezing, so you can be assured that the procedure is safe. It was originally pioneered by scientists at a hospital in Massachusetts and is now used by many centers that are staffed by trained medical professionals, such as The Center for Laser and Cosmetic Surgery.

There are many benefits of CoolSculpting, including better confidence and the little to no recovery time. Those that get the procedure are often extremely satisfied with their results, and are happy to see that the pockets of fat they had worked to get rid of are now gone. Obviously, it is important to still maintain a healthy lifestyle after the procedure, but you will no longer need to worry about those extra sit-ups added to your workout!

If you are at a relatively healthy weight, but want to eliminate stubborn fat, CoolSculpting may be the perfect option! Contact our offices today to schedule your consultation.

Veronica is the best!!! She is so sweet, very knowledgeable, and helped me feel comfortable throughout the entire Botox and filler process. My results are everything I was looking for! Thanks for my confidence boost! I’ll definitely be back.

First time here & I will definitely be back! Allison did my Botox. She was honest when I asked her what areas she thought botox would be best for me & explained the whole process. I have received botox at other cosmetic centers & this was by far the best experience!
