Unlike most other methods of fat reduction, our Loveland CoolSculpting procedure involves no needles, surgery, or downtime. Patients often spend procedure time reading, working on their laptops, or simply relaxing. CoolSculpting® is an innovative fat elimination technique that harnesses the power of cooling to destroy unwanted and stubborn fatty deposits around the abdomen, waist, thighs, and buttocks that have proven resistant to healthy lifestyle changes. CoolSculpting literally freezes the fat cells in the target area, causing them to die and be naturally and be reabsorbed by the body’s natural metabolic processes.
Are you a good candidate for Coolsculpting? The ideal candidate for CoolSculpting will be at or near their ideal weight and already maintain an excellent diet and exercise routine. CoolSculpting is intended to be a weight loss procedure, but can target stubborn fatty deposits that are resistant to elimination through diet and exercise alone. It is ideal for individuals with unwanted fat and unsightly bulges around the abdomen, waist, and/or thighs.
Is Coolsculpting painful or uncomfortable? No. During the procedure, you may feel intense cold and/or pressure at the targeted area for a few minutes, but this should not be painful or uncomfortable. Patients undergoing CoolSculpting do not require sedation or anesthesia, and most patients find the treatment relaxing, as they can simply watch TV, read, listen to music, or even rest.
