At Charleston Dermatology, we are proud to be able to offer our Charleston community the opportunity to eliminate fat with the revolutionary CoolSculpting procedure. This fat reduction treatment is the only FDA-cleared procedure that uses controlled cooling to target and eliminate fat.

Not sure if CoolSculpting is right for you? Here are just some of the many benefits of this incredible procedure:

It’s non-invasive

One of the biggest benefits of CoolSculpting is that the procedure is completely non-invasive. There is no need for pre-surgical prep or anesthesia, there are no incisions or needles used, and there is little to no downtime after treatment. Whereas some fat-removal procedures will keep you on bed-rest for an extended amount of time, CoolSculpting allows you to return to life as usual immediately following your session.

It’s safe

CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared for your love handles, abdomen and thighs. How it works is that the CoolSculpting technology targets the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are then frozen and eventually die. Over time, your body will naturally process this fat and eliminate the dead cells, leaving behind the healthier, leaner cells in its place. No artificial substances are involved in the procedure.

However, you should not have the CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. It is also not a treatment for obesity. You should speak with your physician or dermatologist first before deciding if CoolSculpting is right for you.

The results look natural

While you can get back to normal life immediately after the procedure, it may take some time before you start noticing results. You can expect a fat reduction of about 25 percent with each treatment, which makes the results appear to be more natural than some other more invasive fat-reducing procedures.

The results last

Not only are the fat cells removed permanently, but your body will continue to flush out fat cells and continue to do so for up to four to six months after your treatment. If you do gain weight, you will see a more even distribution of fat throughout your body, rather than just in the treated areas.

If you’re ready to get rid of your troublesome fat, schedule an appointment with Charleston Dermatology today! We’ll talk you through the procedure and make sure that CoolSculpting is the right choice for you.
