CoolSculpting® in Sarasota is an FDA-approved fat reduction treatment. What makes it unique is that it involves no downtime, provides permanent results, and is backed by extensive clinical studies supporting its safety and effectiveness. We offer this to patients who don’t want to experience recovery and individuals who are not eligible for surgery. CoolSculpting® in Sarasota uses cooling panels that bring the fat cells to a temperature that is low enough to kill them without causing injury to the skin and other surrounding tissue. Learn about some of the factors that determine if you’re a good candidate for CoolSculpting®.
You are Near Your Ideal Weight
A good rule of thumb is to be at or close to your ideal weight. This means that slightly overweight individuals could enjoy this treatment as well; however, it all depends. The treatment targets the superficial fat, which sits close to the skin. Unlike the deeper visceral fat that is linked to obesity and poor lifestyle, this type of fat—particularly its number and distribution—is primarily determined by your genes. For this reason, some people who are on the thin side have fat pockets that will not respond to diet and exercise.
You are Bothered by Your Fat Bulges
Due to the resistant nature of superficial fat, it is hard or even impossible to get rid of it with exercise and diet alone. Fortunately, CoolSculpting® has been FDA-approved to treat excess fat in various areas of the body. Basically, CoolSculpting® is ideal for people with smaller pockets of fat that are resistant to exercise and diet.
You Have a Double Chin
CoolSculpting® has been cleared by the FDA for the treatment of a double chin, which is caused by excess submental fat.
You Have Realistic Goals and Expectations
Clinical studies have shown that patients can expect 20-25 percent fat reduction after one treatment. Hence, the right candidate should understand what the treatment can realistically accomplish.
You Don’t Want Surgery
Liposuction and other surgery-based body contouring procedures entail a recovery. CoolSculpting®, meanwhile, does not require downtime. Due to the safety of CoolSculpting® in Sarasota, patients who are not eligible for liposuction and other surgical body contouring techniques may consider it.
You’re Committed to a Healthy Lifestyle
The long-term success of CoolSculpting® or any type of body contouring procedure depends on your ability to keep a stable weight through an active lifestyle and well-balanced diet.
