A relatively new body contouring procedure, CoolSculpting® is helping thousands of people look sleeker and feel more comfortable about their bodies. CoolSculpting® uses unique technology to freeze fat cells without harming the skin or tissue. The nonsurgical body contouring delivers results that are similar to liposuction, but without incisions, anesthesia or downtime. For people who are close to their target weight, here are some trouble spots CoolSculpting® can help treat.
For many people, the stomach can be a perennial problem. A small amount of extra fat on your tummy can quickly disguise the hard work you’ve done to build muscles or lose weight. CoolSculpting® can whisking away that fat, making your abdomen look sleeker and improving your silhouette.
2. Bra Strap Bulge
Many women are fighting the battle of the bulge with the band of their bras. The thick elastic band can cut into the fat of your back, turning even an otherwise slender back into rolling hills. This stubborn fat may not respond well to diet and exercise, but CoolSculpting® can effectively remove it.
3. A Double Chin
You may be able to cover up or hide other fatty deposits, but excess fat in the chin area can be immediately noticeable and may take a toll on your self-confidence. Depending on the technique, CoolSculpting® may be a more discreet way to treat a double chin than liposuction.
The thighs and the area just underneath the buttocks can be prone to harboring extra fat. CoolSculpting® can improve the skin tone and contours of your thighs, leaving you feeling more confident about wearing a swimsuit or shorts.
Wherever your problem spot may be, a board-certified plastic surgeon who offers CoolSculpting® may be able to help contour your trouble spots for a sleeker, smoother look.
