Standing in front of the mirror may leave many adults fretting before bathing suit season. After dieting and exercising have proven unsuccessful, they still battle unwanted fat deposits in areas of their bodies such as the abdomen, love handles, and inner and outer thighs. Fortunately, they do not have to live this way. An innovative treatment called CoolSculpting can freeze fat cells. After the fat cells die, the body naturally processes the fat and eliminates the dead cells. 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.
Bidding farewell to unwanted fat
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical treatment that typically requires no downtime. The procedure involves utilizing technology that delivers controlled cooling to the treatment areas. A handheld device targets the fat cells underneath the skin. The procedure is generally comfortable, allowing patients to sit back and relax or read a book. After a treatment session, you can often return to work or other daily activities.
The first step toward attaining the body of your dreams is scheduling a consultation with one of our dermatologists. The doctor will examine the areas you wish to have treated to determine if CoolSculpting is right for you. You will be asked about your goals and a treatment plan will be tailored to meet your needs. The plan will outline the number of treatment sessions recommended to achieve your goals.
Patients often rave about the results they notice from treatment. In weeks, they can begin to see improved body contours. Their bodies will continue to eliminate fat cells for up to four to six months after treatment, so the results are long-term. After treatment, patients typically have renewed confidence and more motivation to keep their bodies fit and healthy.
