The coolest, most innovative, non-invasive and natural way to quickly lose those annoying bumps and bulges of stubborn fat.
There’s a reason they call it “stubborn fat”. – Because regardless of how much time and energy you invest into eating healthy and exercise, it still sticks around. That muffin top and/or those love handles have been almost impossible to conquer and you’re forced to just live with them or think of some form of surgery. Enter CoolSculpting®.
FREEZE AWAY FAT?
The idea that cold can selectively affect fat led to the innovative cooling process developed by scientists at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School. CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
FREEZE STUBBORN FAT AWAY, SAY NO TO SURGERY
The CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is FDA-cleared and contours the body by safely and effectively freezing away unwanted fat for good without surgery or downtime.
SIT BACK, RELAX, AND SAY GOODBYE TO STUBBORN FAT
After you and your physician select the area(s) to be treated, the device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied. During your procedure, feel free to read, check email, or even take a nap.
RESHAPE YOUR BODY
You can reduce fat on multiple areas of your body with the CoolSculpting procedure, and additional sessions may further enhance your results. Your provider will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored just for you.
AN FDA-APPROVED SOLUTION FOR UPPER ARM FAT
At Lux, we also offer the newest state-of-the-art treatment option to reduce stubborn fat in the upper arm area – the CoolAdvantage Petite™. Recently approved by the FDA, the CoolAdvantage Petite™ is just one example of how CoolSculpting® technology continues to evolve and address multiple areas of the body unlike other nonsurgical body contouring systems.
AFTER YOUR COOLSCULPTING SESSION
The CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is completely non-surgical, so you can typically return to normal activities immediately.
GET USED TO LIKING WHAT YOU SEE
In the weeks and months to follow, your body naturally processes and eliminates the treated fat cells. Once the fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.
Here’s the skinny: developed by Harvard scientists, CoolSculpting® is a unique, patented, clinically proven procedure which involves freezing fat cells without damage to your skin. There’s no knife. No suction hoses. No needles. No lasers, even. After your treatment, you get on with your busy day. On average, you’ll see a 20% reduction of fat in the treated area after one visit. You can lose even more with additional appointments if you and your doctor deem necessary.
- AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE?
The CoolSculpting fat reduction procedure is specially designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. Unlike gastric bypass surgery, the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese. It is, however, a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas, including under the chin, they’d like to get rid of. Request a one-on-one consultation with a CoolSculpting physician who will determine if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.
- HOW MUCH DOES THE COOLSCULPTING PROCEDURE COST?
The price for CoolSculpting procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of sessions needed, and your ultimate goals. Create a customized treatment plan, in person, with your physician that’s tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
- HOW LONG IS EACH SESSION? HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED?
Your CoolSculpting physician will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your CoolSculpting session will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. You and your provider may schedule additional sessions in order to meet your goals. Many people read, check email, or even take a nap during their sessions.
- WHERE DOES THE FAT GO?
Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), they die and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.
- WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE?
As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their treatment.
- IS THE COOLSCULPTING PROCEDURE SAFE?
In the USA, the CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges in the submental area, thigh, abdomen, and flank. As the #1 non-invasive fat reduction procedure and with millions of CoolSculpting procedures performed worldwide, it is proven to be a safe and effective treatment.
- ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
During the procedure you may experience deep pulling, tugging, pinching, numbness or discomfort. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging and pain. Rare side effects may also occur. The CoolSculpting procedure is not for everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia, paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria, or cold agglutinin disease. The CoolSculpting procedure is not a treatment for obesity. As with any medical procedure, ask your physician if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.
- CAN I RETURN TO NORMAL ACTIVITIES AFTER MY TREATMENT?
Yes, you can. The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, numbness or discomfort in the treated area, but this is temporary and will resolve completely. Often times, patients return to work after their CoolSculpting session is over.
- WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. But your body will still flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.
- DO I NEED TO TAKE SPECIAL SUPPLEMENTS OR FOLLOW A STRICT DIET AND EXERCISE PROGRAM?
No supplements or pills are required and you do not have to adopt new diet and exercise habits. 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.
- WHAT HAPPENS IF I GAIN WEIGHT DOWN THE ROAD?
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.
