Body contouring reshapes your body using noninvasive procedures to permanently eliminate localized areas of fat. These treatments target stubborn pockets of fat that stick around despite diet and exercise.
Noninvasive body contouring is highly effective, but it’s not meant for weight loss. For this reason, the best candidates are close to their healthy body weight but plagued by love handles, tummy fat, and other trouble spots.
Dr. Mest and the team at Pier Medical Aesthetics use the innovative CoolSculpting fat-freezing procedure to eliminate problem fat from anywhere on your body without surgery.
CoolSculpting is an innovative, non-surgical and natural way to lose some of your stubborn fat.
CoolSculpting, developed by Harvard scientists, is a patented and clinically proven procedure that involves freezing fat cells without damage to the skin. There’s no knife, needles or lasers. After your treatment, you can get on with your busy day.
After your provider places the CoolSculpting applicator against your skin, suction gently pulls the targeted area of fat up between two cooling panels. Fat cells are more sensitive to cold than your skin, so the controlled temperature freezes fat without harming your skin.
After the frozen fat cells die, your body gradually eliminates the waste. As a result, the treated fat is permanently eliminated.
Your provider places a gel pad and the CoolSculpting applicator against your skin right above the targeted area of fat. After the device is turned on, you’ll feel intense cold and pressure created by the suction. These sensations only last about five to 10 minutes. After that, the area becomes numb.
Treating one area takes about 35 minutes, so the length of your procedure depends on the number of areas treated. When your treatment is over, your provider massages the area for a few minutes, and then you’re ready to get back to your daily routine.
Following your procedure, you may develop redness, swelling, bruising, blanching, or firmness in the treated area. Some patients experience slight numbness, stinging, tingling, or tenderness. However, these side effects are only temporary.
It takes time for all the treated fat cells to be cleared out of your body. You’ll start to see results in about three weeks, but optimal results are visible after two months. Your body continues to flush out fat cells up to six months after treatment.
