Even with diet and exercise, many patients in Utah have residual fat areas that never seem to go away. CoolSculpting, also known as cryolipolysis, is a fat-reduction procedure where targeted cooling is used to eradicate stubborn fat cells, which are eventually expelled by the body. CoolSculpting, unlike weight loss surgery, is used to reduce fat when a patient is already at or close to their target weight. CoolSculpting is not a weight loss plan for obese people. The procedure is non-surgical and non-invasive with virtually no downtime. CoolSculpting at Ogden Clinic may be the right option for patients who are looking to eliminate bulges of fat in the thigh, flank, abdomen, back, and submental area. CoolSculpting has become the most popular, non-surgical alternative to liposuction.
When you come into Ogden Clinic for your initial consultation, your provider will help you determine the problems areas to target with CoolSculpting. The doctor will then tailor a treatment plan to meet your body’s needs, as well as your schedule. Each patient’s experience with their Utah CoolSculpting appointment is different, as the treatment time varies depending on how many different areas you have treated. Most patients finish their treatment within 35-60 minutes. Since CoolSculpting is a non-invasive and non-surgical procedure, patients are able to nap, work on their tablet or laptop, or read during their treatment.
During your CoolSculpting procedure at Ogden Clinic, you will experience some intense cold as the cooling is delivered through an applicator to your targeted treatment sites. After a few minutes, the cooling sensation will go away as the area goes numb. The applicator does use a vacuum to draw out the fatty tissues, so the only other thing you may notice during treatment is some minor tugging or pinching. Since the procedure is non-surgical, there is no downtime and most patients can return to all their normal activities following its conclusion. Patients can see results as early as 3 weeks, but the most noticeable results are visible after 2 months. Following your CoolSculpting procedure, it’s recommended that you continue to lead a healthy lifestyle to maintain the results of the procedure.
