CoolSculpting in San Diego
Fat Freezng Technology
With proven science and real results, CoolSculpting’s fat-freezing technology gives long-term results that make trouble spots a lot less troublesome. From a scientific perspective, fat cells do not like the cold and at a specific temperature they will freeze. Once that happens, your body will naturally eliminate the dead cells in 1 to 3 months or more, resulting in up to 20%-25% reduction of fat in each treated area.
The CoolSculpting® procedure is FDA-cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges under the chin and jawline areas, thigh, abdomen and flank, along with bra fat, back fat, areas underneath the buttocks as well as the upper arm. It is also FDA-cleared to affect the appearance of lax tissue with submental area treatments.
For individuals with healthy eating habits and an active lifestyle, that are ready to take the next step, cryolipolysis is a safe and effective way to reduce excess fat.
However, CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss treatment. CoolSculpting® is for clients at or near their ideal body weight who are looking to reduce fat in one or more of the 9-FDA cleared treatment areas.
