FDA-cleared for the non-invasive reduction of fat
Why Use CoolSculpting®
If you eat healthy and exercise on a normal basis, but just can't seem to get rid of excess fat, then CoolSculpting can help. The procedure is great for shrinking fat in the abdomen, love handles, fat above the knees, in the neck area and even the chest area. Both men and women are eligible for the procedure and Dr. Riordan can help determine if CoolSculpting is right for you.
How CoolSculpting® Works
Dr. Riordan performs the CoolSculpting procedure in her office and no anesthesia or recovery time is needed. The device is simply pressed against the area that is being treated, such as abdomen or love handles, and the cold targets the fat cells in that area. At first, the patient may feel a slight tingling sensation, but with little to no discomfort. The cooling causes an inflammatory reaction from the body, which breaks up targeted fat cells. The procedure lasts about an hour and afterwards, patients can return to everyday activities.
Results from CoolSculpting®
After a couple of days following the CoolSculpting procedure, the cooled fat cells will begin to shrink. Over the course of several months, these fat cells are digested by the body and removed through the liver, though many patients start to notice results in as little as a month. CoolSculpting is proven to melt away 25% of fat from one to two treatments.
