What is CoolSculpting?
Sometimes called “fat freezing,” CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared non-surgical fat reduction procedure that uses cooling technology to remove excess stubborn body fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise. CoolSculpting taps into the power of Cryolipolysis, the same amazing science that causes people who eat popsicles to shed small pockets of fat as they enjoy a treat. This cutting-edge procedure helps crystallize fat cells, which are then processed and eliminated by the body. The result? A slimmer, sculpted, trimmer you.
Developed by researchers from Harvard, CoolSculpting delivers noticeable results without surgery or downtime. CoolSculpting targets fat in the following areas: abdomen, flank/side, back, inner and outer thighs, distal thigh area, upper arms and double chins. By flushing out the crystallized fat cells over the course of several weeks, your body helps eliminate those fat pockets in a little as a single office visit.
At Janiga MDs, we will develop a customized treatment plan based on your specific areas of concerns and your goals. This non-invasive treatment is performed at our Reno offices, overseen by our board certified doctors, Dr. Timothy and Dr. Jennifer Janiga. With dual CoolSculpting, and the newest applicator technology, your treatment times will be shorter, more effective, and more comfortable. Also, we will be able to treat different parts of your body at the same time. You will be a sculpted, new you in half the time.
To start your CoolSculpting treatment, the body is examined and treatment zones are mapped out. A gel pad is then applied to your targeted area and a vacuum applicator is applied drawing the targeted area into the applicator cup. Applicators are secured to the treatment area, delivering controlled cooling to the targeted area for 35-45 minutes. It’s not unusual to feel pressure combined with a cold sensation on your skin. You may experience a pulling feeling accompanied by a tugging or pinching sensation. Many CoolSculpting patients choose to read, check email or take a nap during the customized treatment.
