Overview

CoolSculpting is the latest in non-surgical body contouring. The revolutionary treatment uses cryolipolysis or controlled freezing to destroy fat cells so they can be eliminated through natural body processes. CoolSculpting is one effective solution for isolated pockets of fat that will not respond to your diet and exercise efforts. The procedure is available at Aesthetic Specialty Centre, serving Atlanta and the metro areas including Roswell, Alpharetta and Johns Creek.

CoolSculpting is an effective way to reduce fat deposits and create a sleeker body contour without anesthesia, incisions or downtime. Whether you are battling post-pregnancy weight or just want to look your best, our board-certified physicians proudly recommend the CoolSculpting procedure to freeze the fat cells in stubborn areas. Our medical aestheticians are highly trained to determine whether you are an ideal candidate for the CoolSculpting procedure. If so, we will design a unique treatment plan for your specific needs and desired results.

 

 

THE COOLSCULPTING PROCEDURE

Your CoolSculpting treatment will take place in a private, spa-like room overlooking a peaceful lake and equipped with a flat screen tv and complimentary Wi-Fi. After you and your provider select the area to be treated, the device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied. You may feel an uncomfortable cooling sensation right at the beginning of the treatment, but this will subside quickly. During your procedure, you should be comfortable enough to read, check email or even take a nap.

CoolSculpting treatments take about one hour to complete. During the treatment, the cooling causes the fat cells in the treatment area to crystallize and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.

 

CoolSculpting Recovery

The CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is completely non-surgical, so you can typically return to normal activities immediately. The treated area may look slightly red after your procedure, but this side effect will subside in the hours following treatment. Most patients experience little or no discomfort after their CoolSculpting procedure.

In the weeks and months to follow, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead fat cells. Instead of walking out of our office looking like you had a cosmetic procedure done, your results will develop gradually. People may think you are spending more hours sweating at the gym, rather than heading to your cosmetic surgeon’s office! Most patients will need a series of CoolSculpting treatments to achieve full results. However, once the fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.

The CoolSculpting procedure is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise. The results are proven, noticeable, and lasting, so you’ll look great from every angle. To find out if this revolutionary treatment is the right body contouring solution for you, contact Aesthetic Specialty Centre at (770) 393-9000 for our Roswell location or (706) 467-6500 for our Greensboro location.

Many patients feel more motivated to take care of themselves after their CoolSculpting treatment. It is as if they get a second lease on their body and want to start anew again by taking even better care of themselves.
ANSWER: Many people, after seeing the results from their CoolSculpting procedure, take even better care of themselves. However, if you do gain weight, you may gain it evenly all over your body, not just in the treated areas.11. Data on file. ZELTIQ Aesthetics, Inc.
