Treasure Valley Dermatology is excited to now offer CoolSculpting® as a non-surgical, fat-reduction treatment solution for patients in the Boise area who are looking to eliminate stubborn fat pockets on the body and tighten skin on the sub-mental area under the chin!
We wanted to take a moment to answer questions you may have about what CoolSculpting is and how it works.
CoolSculpting is a fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise. Utilizing the CoolSculpting device, this process is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical treatment to reduce and eliminate this type of stubborn fat.
You might be wondering what the catch is. What do we mean when we say CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared? Fortunately, with CoolSculpting there is no catch, and we can proudly stand behind the quality and integrity of the CoolSculpting procedure.
Here is exactly what we mean when we say CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared:
“The CoolSculpting® procedure is FDA-cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges in the sub-mental (under the chin) and submandibular (under the jawline) areas, thigh, abdomen and flank, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (also known as banana roll) and upper arm. It is also FDA-cleared to affect the appearance of lax tissue with sub-mental area treatments. The CoolSculpting® procedure is not a treatment for weight loss.”
During your treatment, a gel pad and applicator will be applied to the targeted area. The CoolSculpting applicator delivers controlled cooling to the targeted fat. The CoolSculpting procedure safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. Treated fat cells are crystalized (frozen), then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
Fat cells that are frozen during the CoolSculpting procedure gradually die off and leave the body through the body’s natural elimination process. That’s why the results are long-term.
