What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is an innovative method of body sculpting developed to address pockets of stubborn fat that will not respond to diet or exercise. This FDA-cleared, patented procedure is designed to target subcutaneous fat without the risk of damaging surrounding skin or tissue.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

Systems which use heat to kill fat cells can pose a risk. CoolSculpting is different. This new way to reshape your body was discovered by Harvard scientists, resulting in a new technology called Cryolipolysis. This is the process of targeting and freezing fat cells to reshape the body. Once the fat cells are frozen, the body naturally flushes away the dead cells, leaving you with a more attractive, trim figure.

What is Cryolipolysis?

Fat freezes at a higher temperature than your body’s other cells. With CoolSculpting’s state-of-the-art technology, fat cells are broken down, and then carried away by your body’s natural processes. Our Tucson CoolSculpting accomplishes all of this without pain, downtime, or invasive surgery.

What Can I Expect During My CoolSculpting Session?

CoolSculpting is performed in the comfort of our private Tucson clinic, where we provide a luxurious, comfortable, and private environment. During the procedure, the CoolSculpting gel pad applicator is applied to the area that needs to be slimmed. You may initially feel an intense cold sensation or slight tugging, pulling or pinching. These sensations subside within a few minutes. Now, simply sit back and relax as the CoolSculpting works to kill your fat cells. Many patients read, rest, or work on a digital device during a 60-minute CoolSculpting session.

What Should I Expect Following My CoolSculpting Session?

This treatment has few side effects to worry about. You may experience mild redness, bruising or swelling at the treatment site. This is temporary and should subside within a few days. Since there is no downtime associated with CoolSculpting, you are free to resume you day as usual. Each CoolSculpting session lasts for approximately one hour with flexible appointment times for your convenience.

When Will I See Results?

Over the course of the next few weeks, you will begin to notice a slimmer, more streamlined silhouette. The frozen fat cells are carried away by your body’s natural processes, and the results begin to appear in the weeks ahead. Each CoolSculpting session can lead to a reduction of 20 percent of fat in the area treated. Once your body has swept the fat cells away they are gone for good. There are some patients who report seeing results as early as three weeks after an initial procedure, however, you can expect to see the maximum results after approximately three months.

Will I Need More than One Session?

It may be necessary to schedule more than one CoolSculpting session to achieve the fat reduction level you want. Dr. Larson can advise you if multiple sessions will be needed to achieve your vision for your body shape.
