Freeze Stubborn Fat with CoolSculpting® in Rancho Mirage & Palm Springs
Dr. Sofonio is dedicated to bringing innovative body contouring procedures to his patients in the Rancho Mirage and Palm Springs area. One such procedure is CoolSculpting®, which involves freezing stubborn fat cells from beneath your skin using a precisely controlled cooling technology. Recommended to treat areas of fat in your abdomen, thighs, flanks, and arms, this non-invasive procedure has been cleared by the FDA and requires no anesthesia, surgery, or downtime afterward. It’s suitable for men and women of all body contour types and ages.
How the Innovative, Non-Invasive CoolSculpting® Procedure Works
CoolSculpting® safely freezes and eliminates stubborn fat cells using precisely controlled cooling technology. Once your fat cells have been frozen, they’ll begin to die off in the weeks that follow as your body naturally eliminates dead cells. Over time, this results in a more sculpted you. CoolSculpting® results are generally long-term because the treated fat cells are eliminated. This procedure typically reduces the number of fat cells in each treated area by about 20-25%, though individual results may vary. It should be noted that CoolSculpting® does not actually help patients lose weight. It helps them lose unwanted fat cells, which can make them look slimmer.
Post-Treatment Care and Expected Results from CoolSculpting®
CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive procedure with little to no downtime required after the procedure. Most patients report feeling cold during the first 5-10 minutes of the procedure until the area of the body being treated becomes numb. Because the device also draws fatty tissue into its applicator cup, you may also experience minor pulling, tugging, and/or mild pinching. Following your treatment, you may experience temporary redness, swelling, blanching, bruising, tingling, tenderness, cramping, itching, or skin sensitivity. The number of CoolSculpting® treatments needed will be dependent on your specific body contouring goals and which body areas require treatment.
