Expanded FDA clearance for CoolSculpting by Zeltiq Aesthetics, available in the Cleveland area
Do you struggle with areas of stubborn fat? If so, you are not alone. According to research from ZELTIQ Aesthetics, the makers of CoolSculpting, 88 percent of adults are concerned about excess body fat, with 69 percent identifying the problem as very disturbing. Often, this fat is accumulated in specific areas, creating noticeable bulges that seem to resist diet and exercise. CoolSculpting noninvasive fat removal targets these problem areas, destroying fat cells for effective body contouring without surgery.
excess body fat CoolSculpting was introduced five years ago, and quickly became one of the most popular nonsurgical body shaping procedures available. Early on, it received FDA clearance for treatment areas including submental fat (double chin), thighs, abdomen, and flanks (love handles). Dermatologists have been using this technology to treat many other areas of the body for some time, with excellent results. Recently, CoolSculpting’s FDA clearance was expanded to include several other treatment areas, such as the back, beneath the buttocks, and bra-area fat.
The CoolSculpting procedure
Convenience is one of the greatest advantages of CoolSculpting. You want curves that fit in your favorite skinny jeans, but you need a solution that fits in your busy schedule. The process is entirely noninvasive with no downtime. You will be able to return to normal daily activities immediately after treatment, and then watch bothersome bulges gradually shrink over the next few months.
The process can be completed in as little as 35 minutes, and it is comfortable enough that some patients sleep through treatment. The number of sessions will depend on your treatment goals. Many people are able to achieve optimal improvement in a single visit, thanks to the revolutionary DualSculpting technique. By using two separate CoolSculpting devices, our providers can treat two areas of the body simultaneously. Seriously Skin is the only dermatology practice in the Cleveland area to offer DualSculpting.
