CoolSculpting® is a unique body contouring procedure that targets and freezes fat cells by means of cryolipolysis, an advanced cooling technology. Once treated, these fat cells are then naturally eliminated through the body’s normal elimination processes, so the procedure produces completely natural-looking, gradual results that eliminate fat cells permanently from the treatment area.
At Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, we strive to ensure every patient is as comfortable as possible before, during, and after treatment.
During your session, our trained medical aesthetician will prep your skin and apply a CoolSculpting applicator to the treatment area. You can sit back and read a book, watch your favorite shows, play on your phone, or just relax. Treatment sessions typically last 35-45 minutes per area treated.
After your treatment, your provider will massage the area with our revolutionary shockwave, ensuring the best results to break up the frozen fat cells and enhance the fat reduction. There is little to no downtime after treatment with results as early as 3 weeks after treatment. The final results are usually visible at one to three months after treatment.
Confidence comes from how you feel. Decide what makes you feel beautiful, and feel your best!
Everything You Need To Know About CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is a unique body contouring procedure that targets and freezes fat cells by means of cryolipolysis, an advanced cooling technology. Once treated, these fat cells are then naturally eliminated through the body's normal elimination processes, so the procedure produces completely natural-looking, gradual results that eliminate fat cells permanently from the treatment area.
CoolSculpting works by delivering extreme cold temperature to specific body areas to destroy fat cells. Your body then eliminated these cells over several weeks.
CoolSculpting applicators can be applied to almost any body area where excess fat exists. Most common areas for CoolSculpting treatment are abdomen, flanks, inner and outer thighs, upper and lower back, upper arms and double chin.
CoolSculpting targets stubborn and hard to treat fat deposits and destroys those cells permanently. With a single treatment patients can expect about 20% improvement in contour. Additionally, CoolSculpting does target and helps to improve some skin laxity.
Pay as little as $96 per month for 12 month for under chin area.
