CoolSculpting for Fat Reduction
CoolSculpting is the best non-surgical (liposuction is surgical) way that I have seen to remove unwanted fat bulges on the abdomen, flanks ("love handles"), and back.
It is FDA approved in the U.S. It’s results are very consistent, and the safety profile is high. Treated areas show a 20-30% loss of fat cells over a 2-4 month period. The company does NOT claim this, but a small amount of skin tightening is also often observed as a nice side effect of the treatment.
Currently about 300,000 cases have been done worldwide allowing for a lot of confidence in the data, and we’re seeing some nice results at my clinic in Seattle. The company is currently trying to develop adaptors that would fit the upper thighs, upper arms, and possible the under under the chin.
