What is CoolSculpting®?

Everyone has pockets of fat on their body that don’t respond to exercise or changes in diet. CoolSculpting® is a revolutionary non-surgical contouring treatment that freezes this stubborn fat, which the body then eliminates naturally. Amazingly, CoolSculpting® does this without the use of needles or surgery, and without any downtime. The procedure is safe, FDA-approved, and truly effective. Dr. Saltz and his team in Park City and Salt Lake City, UT are proud to offer patients CoolSculpting®

Candidates for CoolSculpting®

CoolSculpting® was the first non-invasive fat reduction procedure and it is still the most popular. It has reduced unwanted fat for millions of people around the world. As for candidacy, just about everyone, no matter what kind of shape they are in, has unwanted pockets of stubborn fat that are virtually impossible to target with changes in diet and exercise. CoolSculpting® is the way to reduce the fat in these areas by 20 to 25 percent, without a single incision or minute of recovery time.

Coolsculpting Salt Lake City, UTDr. Saltz does want his patients to understand that CoolSculpting® is not a weight-loss procedure; it is a body-contouring procedure. Patients generally should be at or near their ideal body weight before having CoolSculpting® done. This will then remove the stubborn pockets of fat and further slim your contour.

One important aspect to candidacy is the elasticity of your skin. The skin on the area you are having treated needs to be able to tighten down once the excess fat has been frozen and is then removed from your body. If your skin has been stretched due to long-term weight gain or pregnancy, sometimes it has lost its full elasticity and it cannot tighten back down fully. If this is the case, a tummy tuck with Dr. Saltz is a better option, as it will remove excess skin and bring separated abdominal muscles back into the center of the stomach.

How Does CoolSculpting® Work?

Coolsculpting Salt Lake City, UT

CoolSculpting® is a unique process that destroys fat cells beneath the skin with targeted freezing. It doesn’t use lasers, sonic waves, or surgery to remove the fat cells. Unlike those procedures, CoolSculpting® does not destroy or damage surrounding tissue; it targets and kills only fat cells.

In a CoolSculpting® session, the device is attached to the area to be targeted where it applies light suction to the skin and underlying tissue. Once activated, it delivers controlled cooling into the tissue below. But this is the unique aspect of CoolSculpting® — the temperature involved only freezes fat cells, not surrounding non-fat cells. Once the fat cells are crystallized they then gradually die. Your body, as with any non-essential by-product, then eliminates the dead fat cells naturally. With those fat cells gone, the remaining fat cells condense into a thinner fat layer.

A CoolSculpting® session with Dr. Saltz and his team takes from one to three hours. The procedure is pain-free and patients can read a book or even browse the web on their laptops while receiving the treatment. There is no recovery time; patients can return to normal activities immediately following their session.

CoolSculpting® complements body contouring surgeries such as the “Mommy Makeover” by targeting excess fat on your love handles, thighs, back, or any area on the body.

As your body continues to flush away the fat, you will actually notice your results improving over time. Most patients realize the final results of CoolSculpting® after about four months, and according to manufacturer data, nine out of 10 people had an undeniable reduction of fat after just one treatment.

CoolSculpting® FAQs

What Type Of Results Can I Expect From Coolsculpting®?

You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your session at Saltz. But expect your most dramatic results to show after about two months. Your body will continue to flush out fat cells for up to 4-6 months after treatment. This fat is gone for good.

How Many Coolsculpting® Treatments Will I Need?

Subsequent treatments on the same area will not remove the same amount of fat as the first treatment. Most patients have a single treatment on an area. Once they see the changes, they often return to have another area treated. Some patients do opt to have a second treatment on the same area, but that is not necessary for most patients.

How Soon After My Coolsculpting® Treatment Can I Return To My Normal Activities?

CoolSculpting® is completely non-invasive. Immediately following your session, we massage your treatment area for a couple of minutes to get the blood circulating back into the area after the cooling, but then you’re done and you can immediately go back to work or your other typical activities.

What’s The Difference Between Coolsculpting® And Liposuction?

Premier Level LogoCoolSculpting® and liposuction have the same target — to remove or lessen stubborn pockets of fat that don’t respond to diet or exercise. But that’s where the two procedures diverge.

Liposuction uses a cannula to suction out fat from these stubborn pockets. But to gain access, surgical incisions are made. Liposuction permanently removes the fat, but can sometimes create dents or lumpy areas where the fat has been removed. After the procedure, some recovery time is required.

CoolSculpting® doesn’t require any incisions. And its results tend to be smoother because the fat cells that have been frozen are across an area, not simply where the cannula has suctioned (in liposuction) them away. There is no recovery time.
