Why CoolSculpting Can Be Ideal for Fat Removal

Dr. Neeraja C. Mattay at Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, Inc explain why CoolSculpting can be ideal for fat removal

At Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, now a part of U.S. Dermatology Partners,  we are dedicated to helping individuals achieve the results they desire and offer a variety of treatments including CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting can be a great choice for treating mild to moderate areas of fat on the body.

Model showing why CoolSculpting can be ideal for fat removalWith CoolSculpting, we can freeze fat cells. After the cells die, the body naturally processes the fat and eliminates the dead cells. For treatment, a handheld device targets the fat cells underneath the skin. Patients can count on about 20 percent fat reduction in the treatment area. CoolSculpting only targets the fat cells so it has no effect on the skin. The procedure is generally comfortable, allowing patients to relax or read a book. There is typically no downtime, allowing patients to return to work after treatment.

Patients enjoy many benefits from treatment including:

  • No lengthy downtime or recovery periods that are often required after surgery
  • Improved body contours
  • The ability to fit into their clothes
  • Renewed confidence
  • Improved self-esteem
  • More motivation to keep their bodies fit and healthy

Do you want to explore your candidacy for this innovative fat removal treatment? If you do, we recommend scheduling a consultation appointment with one of our dermatologists. The doctor will examine areas of the body you want treated and you will be asked about your goals. Together, you will tailor a treatment plan that meets your needs. The number of treatments will be highlighted in your plan. CoolSculpting can be ideal because the body continues to eliminate fat cells for up to four to six months after treatment.
