Dr. Dyson often sees patients who express their frustration with certain parts of their bodies that do not respond to diet or exercise, such as love handles, back, thighs and upper arms. Coolsculpting is an emerging technology that was approved by the FDA to specifically identify and kill fat cells by freezing them. Unlike other devices, Coolsculpting will not harm other cells and patients often see a reduction of 20 to 30 percent in the amount of fat in targeted areas. The best part – no downtime, no anesthesia, no recovery. Treatments take 60-90 minutes per area.
Coolsculpting is not as aggressive as surgical liposuction. If you are generally in shape and want to target specific areas, call Dyson Dermatology for a free consult to find out if Coolsculpting is a good choice to resculpt these areas without surgery. People who suffer from obesity, pregnant women, and those with weak immune system are usually not good candidates.
A hand piece will be placed to target fat cells in the body areas that were pre-defined. While your fat is being frozen, you can read, rest or watch a movie. Once the treatment is done, your body will begin a natural process of removing the dead fat cells that can take several weeks. The end result? losing 1-2 sizes in your pants, for example, once the process is completed.
Patients are often happy with the results of one coolsculpting session. Take into consideration that it may be a gradual change, as some women and men have slower metabolism and it will take longer for their body to remove the dead cells. If you want further reduction, we may advise to undergo a second session.
Since its approval by the FDA five years ago, Coolsculpting was used in the U.S. and abroad on hundreds of thousands of patients with no serious side effects. Dr. Dyson has seen great results with patients in Tucson and Green Valley offices.
