This non-invasive cooling technology can blast away unwanted fat from the body.

Getting rid of a little unwanted body fat here and there can often be more challenging than simply eating right and exercising. While we wish that we could kickbox away fat around the abdomen or love handles, for some people these healthy habits simply aren’t enough. For those who have tried everything and still can’t get rid of stubborn, unwanted fat, our Dayton, OH, doctor Dr. Christopher Sesslar may recommend CoolSculpting.

What is CoolSculpting?

This non-invasive, nonsurgical system uses cooling technology (also known as Cryolipolysis®) that breaks down fat cells in certain areas of our body without affecting the healthy tissue around it. Over the course of a few months, you will notice a permanent fat reduction in commonly treated areas including:

  • Back
  • Flank (“love handles”)
  • Abdomen
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Bra line
  • Upper arms

Virtually, any part of the body can be treated with CoolSculpting.

What should I expect from my CoolSculpting treatment?

When you come into our Dayton, OH, med spa for your first CoolSculpting treatment, we will first place an applicator onto the area of the body that you wish to treat. This applicator is controlled by our CoolSculpting monitoring system, which will transmit energy waves to destroy fat cells permanently. The procedure is painless and can be performed in under 35 minutes.

Are there any side effects of treatment?

Since this is a non-invasive technique you will be allowed to return to your daily activities without restrictions. You may notice some redness in the treated areas, but this shouldn’t last more than a few hours. You may also experience bruising or swelling, which will subside after a few weeks.

What will my results look like? How long will my results last?

About two to four months after CoolSculpting, the patient will notice a considerable fat reduction in the targeted areas. After the first two to four months, those who are looking to gain even more fat reduction may opt for additional CoolSculpting treatments. Of course, it’s important to know that it can take up to six months to see the full results. Since fat cells are destroyed, results are considered permanent.

Who should consider getting CoolSculpting?

This procedure is recommended for those who are healthy and fit but still experience pockets of fat in areas that diet and exercise just don’t seem to change. This is not considered an alternative to weight loss nor will it be helpful for someone who is obese. This is also not an alternative to liposuction.

Spa Medicca is one of the Top 250 cosmetic practices in the US and we’re ranked in the top 1 percent of the US for cosmetic procedures such as CoolSculpting.
