CoolSculpting Specialists in Fort Lauderdale, FL
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is the #1 non-invasive, non-surgical, FDA-cleared fat reduction treatment with no
downtime. Many patients find that no matter how much they sweat at the gym, or count calories, they
just can’t get rid of their pooch. At SkinCenter we work with each of our patients to help them
permanently eliminate fat cells with CoolSculpting and achieve their ideal image through our complete
portfolio of body contouring procedures.
How does CoolSculpting work?
CoolSculpting was developed by Harvard scientist Rox Anderson and is a patented, and clinically proven
procedure that involves freezing fat cells without damaging the skin. There is no knife, no suction hoses,
no needles, and no lasers.
During CoolSculpting an applicator is suctioned to the skin and fat, like a vacuum. The cooling panels
within the applicator cool the fat to a freezing temperature in a process called cryolipolysis. Skin cells
freeze at a lower temperature than fat cells so the only effect to the skin is numbness in the area. After
treatment with CoolSculpting, patients can resume their day without complications or downtime. With
CoolSculpting, a patient’s fat cells are naturally eliminated from their body over the following few
months. The fat cells and their contents are cleared naturally by a process called apoptosis, which
means the macrophages—the Pac-men of the body—take them away without ever dumping fat into the
circulation, unlike liposuction and other techniques of fat removal. Typically, patients require at least 2
treatments 3 months apart however, this varies by patient and desired outcome. As long as a patient
maintains their weight with normal diet and exercise, the long-term results should remain stable.
