How to freeze your fat away – Ogden Clinic provided source, BrandView 3/6/2015

(KSL BrandView) OGDEN – By Dr. Chad Tingey, Dermatologist and Mohs Surgeon

March is here and that means swimsuit season is right around the corner. If you are like many who have spent the cold winter months in hibernation, you probably have packed on a few unwanted pounds.

While diet and exercise are truly the best ways to look and feel your best, you may still notice some bulges in problem areas that just won't go away (think love handles or outer thighs).

So how do you get swimsuit ready when eating healthy and hitting the gym just don't seem to cut it? You could go the traditional route of liposuction, but what if you can get the same results without all of the down time? CoolSculpting may be your answer.

CoolSculpting is a FDA cleared, non-invasive fat removal system available on the market today. The innovative procedure eliminates stubborn fat by using a cooling vacuum technology to freeze and eliminate fat cells. When the procedure is complete, about 30 percent of the fat cells die off. Those are pretty great results without having to go under the knife!

Still wondering if CoolSculpting is right for you? Here are answers to some of the top questions we get at Ogden Clinic :

Who qualifies for the procedure?

The best CoolSculpting patient is the one who has a pocket of fat on the abdomen, thighs or love handles that just won't go away with exercise and diet. CoolSculpting isn't a weight loss approach, but can definitely help define those stubborn problem areas that we all have.

How much does CoolSculpting cost?

CoolSculpting is a cosmetic procedure and the cost varies depending on your goals and how large the problem areas are. The best way to determine how much your procedure will cost is to set up a consultation to tailor a treatment plan just for you.

Is the procedure painful?

The great thing about CoolSculpting is that there is very little pain during the procedure. There may be some minimal discomfort from the cold sensation, but it is very well tolerated by most. CoolSculpting is completely non-surgical, and most patients read, check email and even sleep right through the procedure.

When will I see results and how long will it take to recover?

It doesn't happen overnight, but after about three weeks you will likely begin to see results after your CoolSculpting procedure. After six weeks the fat cells will die off and you will definitely notice a smoother, more contoured shape that you've been hoping for.

Are the results permanent?

Once you undergo the CoolSculpting procedure, the fat cells in the treated area are dead. With proper diet and exercise, you can ensure that your CoolSculpting results are long lasting.

More than 1 million CoolSculpting procedures have been completed around the world to-date. The procedure is safe and effective, and most of all…it can help you get the body of your dreams without going under the knife.
