CoolSculpting is a noninvasive fat reduction procedure that Dr. Bushore does right in his office with no surgery or downtime. He freezes away unwanted fat that’s resistant to diet and exercise, leaving you with a more contoured shape.
With innovative equipment, Dr. Bushore uses controlled cooling that targets fat cells, damaging their integrity without hurting your skin or surrounding tissues.
Using the CoolSculpting machine, he can treat unwanted fat in a variety of areas, including:
Under your chin
Outer and inner thighs
Under your buttocks
Across your back
When you visit Dr. Bushore for body contouring, he develops a customized treatment plan to address your specific trouble areas. He then prepares the CoolSculpting equipment by choosing the appropriately sized applicator. He may place a gel pad on your skin for protection.
Using the applicator, Dr. Bushore vacuums your unwanted fat into the machine’s hollow chamber, where the temperature drops, numbing the area and freezing your fat cells. Depending on your needs, he may treat more than one area during your session — each area takes about 35 minutes.
Once done, the machine automatically turns off, and Dr. Bushore removes the applicator and massages the area. This breaks up the crystallized fat cells, making it easier for your body to remove them.
Because the cells become crystallized, their integrity is damaged, and they eventually die. Once this happens, the body naturally processes and eliminates these cells, reducing the number of fat cells in the targeted treatment area.
On average, it takes about three weeks to begin seeing the results from your CoolSculpting procedure. In two months, you reach the maximum benefit.
As long as you maintain your current weight, the results should last, since the fat cells destroyed during the procedure don’t grow back. If you do gain weight, you will typically gain less fat in the treated areas than in the areas of your body that haven’t been treated with CoolSculpting.
Depending on your needs, Dr. Bushore may recommend multiple treatment sessions to get the results you’re looking for.
