CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical type of body contouring in Little Rock that takes advantage of the fact that fat cells have a higher freezing point than do other types of cells. The body then expels the frozen fat cells over the following months. With this procedure, it is possible to freeze and destroy fat cells without harming neighboring tissues. In addition, the fat cells are gone for good; the body won’t repair or replace them. The results are permanent, providing the patient maintains good health habits.
CoolSculpting® in Little Rock involves an outpatient treatment, and we can treat multiple areas during a single session. The FDA has approved CoolSculpting® on the following parts of the body:
What Does CoolSculpting® Involve?
During the treatment, we will put the applicator on the treatment site and leave it in place. The applicator will suction the skin as it attaches itself to the patient’s body. The patient will not need any anesthetic, and they can relax, read, surf the internet, or nap during the treatment.
While the patient will feel intense cold at first, the treated area will eventually become numb. After that, the patient will feel only a mild suction from the applicator. There is no set recovery time, so the patient may resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment. Most patients start to see results just weeks after the treatment as their bodies gradually expel the frozen fat cells.
