Finish Off Your Weight Loss Journey With CoolSculpting

It’s possible to reach your goal weight, but still have unwanted fat in areas like your belly, thighs, upper arms, and love handles. These stubborn areas are incredibly frustrating because, no matter how hard you work at the gym or follow a diet plan, the fat just won’t reduce. That’s because there’s more involved than diet and exercise when it comes to your figure and fat.

Your genes, hormones, and environment all play a significant role in how your body distributes fat cells. These factors also contribute to how your body responds to efforts to banish them.

Just about everyone has different areas of resistant fat. Warrenton Dermatology & Skin Therapy Center has a solution using revolutionary, noninvasive CoolSculpting® technology.

This FDA-cleared fat-freezing treatment eliminates diet and exercise-resistant fat to help fine-tune your figure without disruptive downtime or scars.

What should I know about CoolSculpting?

Most people have heard of liposuction, a popular surgical treatment that uses vacuum suction to suck fat from unwanted areas on your body. Liposuction removes fat cells forever, so they never can plump back up. CoolSculpting similarly permanently destroys cells, but without surgery.

CoolSculpting works by lowering the temperature of your fat cells. These low temps disrupt your fat cells – they literally shut down and crystallize. This might sound risky, but because fat freezes at a higher temperature than water, your organs, muscles, skin, and other tissues are unaffected by the CoolSculpting process.

Over the course of a few months, your body gets rid of the dead fat cells through your

natural waste-removal system – the lymphatic system. Your body cannot create more fat cells to replace them.

Where does CoolSculpting work?

When you come in for a CoolSculpting consultation, Dr. Caballero discusses your aesthetic goals with you. He then discusses how CoolSculpting can help contour specific areas, including:

In just one treatment, expect to reduce fat in a given treatment area by 20-25%. CoolSculpting isn’t designed for comprehensive weight loss, however. The technology works best when you reach your normal weight — or you get within about 25 pounds. CoolSculpting can help address those pockets of diet and exercise-resistant fat and help you cross the finish line with your fat-loss goals.

And, unlike liposuction and other fat-loss techniques, you won’t end up with loose, sagging skin following CoolSculpting. The patented cryolipolysis method of freezing fat away helps tighten up your skin as the volume of fat in the treatment area decreases.

Is CoolSculpting really as amazing as it sounds?

CoolSculpting is such a popular body-sculpting option because it’s painless and requires no downtime. You can pop in, have a 35-minute session done, and go right back to work, workouts, or daily chores.

Following treatment, you may have mild swelling and slightly reddened skin for a few hours or days, but these side effects are minimal and fade quickly.

The results of your CoolSculpting treatment appear over time. About six weeks after your first session, you’ll start to notice the effects of your treatment. Full results are noticeable after about 12 weeks.

That’s also when you should talk with our team about additional sessions. Depending on your fat-loss goals, we may recommend up to three CoolSculpting treatments. 

Remember though, CoolSculpting doesn’t remove all your fat cells. If you should gain excess weight, remaining fat cells in your body can still expand. Your results are best maintained with regular exercise and a healthy diet.
