CoolSculpting® Nonsurgical Fat Reduction

CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical, FDA-cleared fat-freezing procedure. This fat-reduction method utilizes controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts of diet and exercise. CoolSculpting® is an excellent alternative to liposuction as it safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively freeze fat cells underneath the skin. Over a short period of time, your body will naturally process the fat and eliminate these dead fat cells for good. It is specially designed for those who have noticeable fat bulges underneath the chin, in the thighs, in the abdomen, and flank, as well as those who have bra fat, back fat, and fat underneath the butt. CoolSculpting® results are proven, noticeable, and lasting.

What to Expect From CoolSculpting in Fargo, ND

At Altaire Clinic, you will meet with one of our medical professionals with specialized training in the CoolSculpting® cosmetic procedure. Together, we can focus on specific areas where you want to eliminate fat. From there, the two of you will create a customized treatment plan to achieve your desired goals and ideal body weight. It may even take as little as one office visit to attain your goals. With each CoolSculpting® application, you should expect a 20-24% reduction in fat cells. If you desire more reduction, additional applications can be safely done at follow-up appointments.

During your cosmetic treatment, a gel pad and applicator will be applied to the targeted area. The CoolSculpting® applicator delivers controlled cooling to the targeted fat. You should expect minimal to no pain throughout the CoolSculpting® process. During your procedure, feel free to read, check email, watch TV, or even take a nap. At the consultation, your provider will help you create a plan to ensure the allotment of time with respect to your busy schedule.

How CoolSculpting Works

Many of us have stubborn areas of adipose tissue (fat) despite diet and exercise. The CoolSculpting® procedure is a weight loss treatment that safely delivers controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. Treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), then die. With this weight reduction method, over time, your body will naturally process and eliminate the dead fat cells. This leaves a more sculpted you.

Fat cells that are frozen during the CoolSculpting® procedure gradually die off and leave the body through the body’s natural elimination process. That’s why the results are long-term. Untreated areas will have no change in fat cell distribution. Once you destroy a fat cell, it is permanently gone. If a person gains weight in the future, their body can stretch the remaining fat cells, thus causing potential weight gain in previously treated areas.

The CoolSculpting fat-reduction procedure is specially designed for those who have unwanted fatty tissue in targeted areas that are resistant to a healthy diet and exercise. Good candidates for the CoolSculpting procedure have noticeable bulges of body fat in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. It is a great fat-reducing procedure for those wanting a non-invasive procedure and a non-surgical alternative for fat reduction. This is a fat reduction treatment and not a weight loss regimen or invasive surgical procedure. Some individuals may notice weight reduction after the procedure, however, toning and de-bulking is the optimal goal.

CoolSculpting® Frequently Asked Questions

How Much Does the CoolSculpting Procedure Cost?

The CoolSculpting cost varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of treatments needed, and your ultimate goals. Most patients opt to receive treatments in multiple body areas in order to achieve their desired goals. Create a personalized treatment plan in person with one of our CoolSculpting providers that will be tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.

Can CoolSculpting Reduce Fat From Anywhere on My Body?

The CoolSculpting fat-freezing method is FDA-cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges in the submental area, thigh, abdomen, and flank, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (also known as banana roll), and upper arm. Treatment can target diet and exercise-resistant fat, resulting in a leaner, smoother physique.

How Long Is Each CoolSculpting Treatment? How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Our CoolSculpting experienced practitioner will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your CoolSculpting treatment will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. At Altaire, we have the latest CoolSculpting technology which can treat a patient in 35-60 minutes. Most patients utilize more than one application during the same office visit. You and your provider may also schedule additional office visits in order to meet your desired goals.

I Don't Like My Double Chin, Can the CoolSculpting Procedure Help Me Lose It?

Yes! This non-invasive fat reduction method can treat visible fat bulges under the chin (submental) and jawline (submandibular). Freezing away fat from a double chin is as easy and tolerable as using the CoolSculpting procedure in other parts of the body (e.g., abdomen, flank/side, thighs). It is also FDA-cleared to affect the appearance of lax tissue with submental area treatments. With CoolSculpting treatment for a double chin, patients see results after just 1 to 2 visits. And unlike with plastic surgery, there is little to no downtime.

Where Does the Fat Go? Are the CoolSculpting Results Permanent?

Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), they die and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body.
