CoolSculpting® freezes unwanted fat cells until they gradually disappear, without causing damage to the skin and other tissues. Dr. Joseph C. Galitzin uses CoolSculpting® at his Peachtree City, GA, office as a safe, non-invasive way to target trouble spots that remain despite a healthy diet and regular exercise. This advanced technology offers the benefits of fat-reducing surgeries such as liposuction or a tummy tuck, without the lengthy recovery periods and risks associated with surgery.
CoolSculpting® uses cooling technology known as cryolipolysis to target and freeze stubborn fat cells until they die off. Over the course of several weeks following treatment, your body’s natural processes will eliminate the dead cells, resulting in permanent fat loss. The procedure actually reduces the number of fat cells in treated areas by about 20% to 25%. Because your body naturally processes and eliminates these fat cells, they will not migrate to another area of your body. CoolSculpting® is the only FDA-approved non-surgical treatment to reduce fat.
CoolSculpting® eliminates excess fat tissue without any incisions or downtime, and provides beautiful, lasting results.
CoolSculpting® is appropriate for both men and women. If you have stubborn deposits of fat in your abdomen, flanks (love handles), inner or outer thighs, or under your chin and around your neck, you may be a candidate.
CoolSculpting® is not an appropriate treatment for patients who are severely overweight or obese. It is recommended that patients be within 30 pounds of their ideal weight. Additionally, this treatment is not appropriate for patients with cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. Be sure to inform Dr. Galitzin of any medical or health conditions during your consultation so that he can recommend an appropriate treatment plan tailored to your individual needs.
CoolSculpting® offers the benefits of fat-reducing surgeries such as liposuction or a tummy tuck, without the lengthy recovery periods and risks associated with surgery.
Prior to treatment, you will meet with Dr. Galitzin for your consultation to determine your candidacy for CoolSculpting®. Dr. Galitzin utilizes a holistic approach, viewing your whole figure from various angles to determine which specific areas will benefit most from treatment. With this information, he will create a personalized plan tailored to meet your individual needs. This may involve a combination of different treatments, or multiple CoolSculpting® sessions.
To begin your treatment, we will place a gel pad and applicator on the specific treatment area(s). We use dual-sculpt to treat multiple treatment areas at once, reducing your total treatment time. This applicator will then deliver controlled, cool temperatures through the gel pad, targeting and freezing only the fat cells in that area. You may feel some pressure and intense cold at the start of your treatment; however, this will subside shortly after. During your treatment, you can read, use your laptop computer to watch a movie or browse online, or just relax.
Because CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical treatment, there is no recovery or downtime. You are able to return to work or your normal activities immediately following each treatment session. Over the next several weeks, the frozen fat cells will die, and your body will eventually eliminate them. It can take one to three months before you begin to see results.
Traditional fat-reduction surgeries such as liposuction and tummy tucks require lengthy recovery periods and often result in scarring. CoolSculpting®, on the other hand, is non-invasive and non-surgical. There is no downtime involved and there is no risk, no pain, and no scars. The right patients are able to achieve surgical-like results without surgery, resulting in significant body contouring. With continued proper diet and regular exercise, most patients are able to achieve long-lasting results with CoolSculpting®.
Stubborn fat deposits can detract from your overall appearance. If you are interested in a permanent, non-invasive fat elimination solution, please contact our office to schedule a CoolSculpting® consultation.
