CoolSculpting® is an innovative non-surgical procedure designed to eliminate stubborn fat without the need for an incision. CoolSculpting® technology targets unwanted fat cells in the treatment area and freezes them. Your body will naturally eliminate these frozen cells creating a noticeable reduction of fat in the treated area.
Good candidates for CoolSculpting® have distinct bulges of fat that can be pinched away from the body. You should also have healthy skin with minimal laxity (meaning it is still flexible and not too loose), and be 18+ years old.
You may not be a good candidate for CoolSculpting® if you:
- Are pregnant
- Have a hernia or a history of hernia in the area you want treated
- Have fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, or another auto-immune disorder that causes excessive weakness and discomfort
- Have lymphedema or another condition that affects the lymphatic system
Apart from these factors, anyone with stubborn pockets of fat on their body may potentially be a great candidate for CoolSculpting®.
