Lose the handles!

by Dr. Hope Mitchell, FLT Columnist

Say goodbye to muffin tops and love handles with Coolsculpting. Coolsculpting is the most innovative, non-surgical way to lose those annoying bumps and bulges of stubborn fat. This revolutionary technology targets and cools unwanted fat cells in the selected area to induce a noticeable, natural-looking reduction in fat bulges.

Unlike most other methods of fat reduction, Coolsculpting involves no needles, surgery or downtime. Patients that visit our Perrysburg office often spend procedure time reading, working on their laptops or simply relaxing.

It’s safe, FDA-cleared and effective. Results look natural and can be seen as early as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results after one to three months. Your body is still flushing fat cells and will continue doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.

What happens during the treatment?

To initiate the treatment we will position the device on your body. The device will then draw the bulge up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm pull and pressure, enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be cooled most efficiently. An hour or so later, depending on your needs, you’re done.

Is Coolsculpting safe?

Coolsculpting is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, numbness or discomfort in the treated area, but this is temporary.

Are the results permanent from Coolsculpting?

During Coolsculpting, the treated fat cells are eliminated. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, long-term results should remain stable.
