Learn more here about the benefits of nonsurgical fat reduction with CoolSculpting, including which age groups may qualify for treatment.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a completely nonsurgical, noninvasive treatment for reducing stubborn fat and reshaping a patient’s body. During a CoolSculpting treatment session, which can typically be completed in less than an hour, hands-free applicators are placed on the target treatment area(s). The CoolSculpting system then gently pulls fat cells toward the skin’s surface and cools them to a precise temperature, using an advanced process called cryolipolysis. This process destroys the fat cells, and they are ultimately expelled from the body through natural functions.
Where can CoolSculpting be used?
Common treatment areas for CoolSculpting fat reduction include:
- Under the chin
Who is a candidate for CoolSculpting?
Patients considering CoolSculpting should be in good health, at or near their goal weight, and have realistic expectations for their results. It is important to understand that while CoolSculpting can reduce fat by up to 20 – 25% in problem areas, it is not considered a weight loss tool. Furthermore, patients should be committed to maintaining a stable weight after treatment. Although fat cells are destroyed during CoolSculpting, gaining weight after CoolSculpting can cause the remaining fat cells to swell and ultimately reverse your cosmetic outcome. During your initial consultation for CoolSculpting in the Temecula/Murrieta area, Dr. Phillips will discuss your concerns, goals, and expectations to determine whether CoolSculpting may be right for you.
Is there an age limit for CoolSculpting?
One of the most exciting benefits of CoolSculpting is that it’s safe and effective for patients of virtually all ages. In some cases, even patients younger than 18 may qualify for CoolSculpting with the consent of a parent or guardian. Generally speaking, patients who are healthy, active, and have a mild to moderate amount of stubborn fat that does not respond to diet and exercise are ideal candidates for CoolSculpting, regardless of their age. However, younger patients may seek quicker or more dramatic results after CoolSculpting compared with older patients. At any age, patients should keep in mind that CoolSculpting does not stop the aging process, nor does it prevent fat cells from becoming enlarged with future weight gain. Should patients develop additional areas of stubborn fat due to aging or weight gain after CoolSculpting, a repeat treatment session may help to restore their original results.
