Watching what you eat and getting regular workouts is great for your health. Staying svelte takes work, but it’s worth it when you see the results in the mirror.

But, sometimes your body has other plans—storing a few extra ounces of fat around your belly or a couple of pounds at your hips despite your best efforts to get in shape. It isn’t you, it’s genetics; no amount of exercise and dieting can re-sculpt your body if it wants to hang onto stubborn belly fat.

CoolSculpting®, a proprietary technology from ZELTIQ™, gives you an effective, non-surgical solution. AlluraDerm MD Med Spa is proud to offer this revolutionary new treatment that destroys fat cells without harming your skin.

If you’ve done everything you can think of to lose your love handles, banish back fat or shed that muffin top, CoolSculpting® may be just the thing to help you win the battle of the bulge.

How CoolSculpting® Works

Your skin has a rich supply of blood vessels compared to the fat layer beneath it. Subcutaneous fat, the scientific name for fat below the skin, is therefore more susceptible to cold than the healthy skin above it. CoolSculpting® zaps fat cells with cold through the skin, breaking fat cells apart so your body can flush them away over the next few weeks after treatment.

During the CoolSculpting® process, the device will be applied to the target area where it isolates subcutaneous fat and subjects it to a carefully controlled cold that blasts fat cells from outside your skin. The FDA-approved treatment typically takes about an hour to complete.

The Benefits of CoolSculpting®

Because CoolSculpting® requires no surgery, no anesthesia and no needles, you can schedule it during your lunch since the procedure is fast and you’ll need no recovery time; the most discomfort you may feel during the process is a little chill.

Unlike surgical procedures that remove clumps of fat all at once, leaving uneven skin, CoolSculpting® works on a cell-by-cell basis. It shrinks the subcutaneous fat zone evenly so the skin above the problem area remains smooth.

Additionally, with CoolSculpting® you run no risk of scarring. The cold treatment may briefly redden your skin, but this temporary effect typically fades within a few hours.

CoolSculpting® sessions take a few weeks to reach their full efficacy. Measure yourself with a tape measure before the procedure so you can watch your problem areas melt away week by week.
