How Does CoolSculpting Work?

CoolScuplting Procedure in Washington DC

CoolSculpting is based on scientific evidence that cold temperatures freeze fat (cryolipolysis). The process is streamlined to achieve the best possible result in minimal time. During your treatment session, tissue is gently pulled into a cooling plate. Over the course of about an hour, fat cells will be cooled in a controlled manner. At the predetermined temperature, fat cells will be destroyed, without affecting the overlying skin.

Are You a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is designed for people who have unwanted fat in targeted areas. Good candidates for the procedure have noticeable bulges in certain areas they wish to have eliminated. If you can pinch it, we can freeze it off – for good. CoolSculpting is ideal because it is non-surgical and no general anesthesia or lengthy recovery is required.

The first step toward attaining the body you want is to schedule a consultation with our board-certified dermatologist, Dr. St. Surin-Lord. She is highly sought after for her expertise and gentle care.

At your appointment, Dr. St. Surin-Lord will examine the areas you want treated. She will review your medical history and want to know your goals for treatment. It will be important to tell her about any medications you currently take, including vitamins and herbal supplements. If you are a candidate for CoolSculpting, she will tailor a treatment plan to meet your individual needs.

CoolSculpting Treatment Process

We will apply a device over the treatment area that will cool fat cells in a controlled manner. Eventually, the fat cells are destroyed and eliminated from the body. The surrounding skin is kept intact and remains unaffected throughout the procedure. There is no downtime required, allowing you to return to work or resume normal activities immediately after your appointment.

Embracing the Results

Results from CoolSculpting include a reduction of fat deposits in the treatment areas, improved body contours, and a boost in self-esteem. The team at Visage Dermatology and Aesthetic Center would love to help you achieve your goals.
