Zeltiq CoolSculpting: Non-invasive fat removal in Algonquin and Woodstock
Millions of Americans are at or near a healthy weight. Yet they have zones of stubborn fat that resist sensible eating and exercise. In the past, the only effective treatment for spot reduction was liposuction – extraction of fat through small incisions, with a substantial recovery time. Dr. Khanna offers a non-invasive fat reduction treatment from Zeltiq called CoolSculpting. Patients are enjoying sculpted contours from this fat freezing technology.
How CoolSculpting works
CoolSculpting is based on the principle that fat freezes at a higher temperature than surrounding body tissues. Flesh in targeted areas is pulled into the device, where controlled cooling is applied. Fat cells crystallize and die. The body harmlessly eliminates these cells through natural lymphatic processes.
Treatment and results
You simply relax in a comfortable chair, while we administer treatment. Initially you feel a tug and an intense cold sensation, but it passes quickly. You may doze or read while our team monitors your progress. Treatment time depends on the location and number of areas you want to address, but plan on at least an hour. Tissue is massaged to soften the frozen fat, and you may go back to work or other activities. There is no downtime.
Change begins to occur in as little as three weeks, with obvious improvement in about two months. Slimming continues for up to six months, as the body flushes destroyed fat cells. The adult body does not generate new fat cells so treated fat does not return. For most patients, results of CoolSculpting inspire them to maintain their toned body contours with healthy diet and exercise. However, if you add pounds after treatment, it will be more evenly distributed.
CoolSculpting is not a weight loss program or a cure for obesity, but if you have obstinate pockets of fat, it could be an ideal solution. To learn more about Zeltiq CoolSculpting, call Dermatology Specialists of Illinois at (844) 307-7546.
