What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. Treated fat cells are crystalized (frozen), then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
It is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to target stubborn fat that is eventually eliminated through your body’s metabolic processes.
CoolSculpting will NOT help you lose weight. However, if you want to lose unwanted fat and look slimmer in your clothes, then CoolSculpting may be right for you.
How does CoolSculpting work?
CoolSculpting is offered at ReGenesis Plastic Surgery and Dermatology in Grand Junction, and coming soon to Montrose! CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical fat elimination method, utilizing the science of Cryolipolysis to ‘freeze’ away fat cells. The extreme cool temperatures damage targeted fat cells, while the surrounding healthy tissue remains unharmed. Once the fat cells are disrupted, the body will then safely metabolize and eliminate the unwanted tissue naturally. Some patients will start seeing results after just a few weeks. However, over the following one to three months, patients will see their final outcome – a 10 to 25% reduction of unwanted fat accumulation. The eliminated fat cells will not return, meaning the benefits of CoolSculpting are long-lasting. Many patients say they are even more committed to maintaining a healthy lifestyle through diet and exercise after having a CoolSculpting treatment.

What to expect for your appointment and procedure
The length of your procedure will depend on which areas you’re having treated. As a gauge, it usually takes about 1 hour to treat the abdomen and both flanks (love handles). You should see results after one treatment, although some patients choose to have a second treatment for final tweaks or to treat additional areas.
As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you typically feel intense cold. This soon dissipates. With some applicators, you’ll feel some pulling as suction is applied. The area generally goes numb within 5 to 10 minutes during treatment. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their CoolSculpting treatment.
After the treatment, you may feel some tingling as the area is massaged for 2 or 3 minutes. Patients are usually able to return to normal activities following their appointment.
