Are you tired of stubborn fat that just won’t budge, no matter how hard you work out or diet? The Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads is thrilled to offer CoolSculpting in Newport News and Williamsburg, a non-invasive, FDA-approved treatment that freezes away unwanted fat cells to help you achieve a slimmer physique without love handles and muffin tops.

Freeze Away & Eliminate Stubborn Fat

CoolSculpting is a cutting-edge, non-surgical body contouring technique that targets and eliminates stubborn fat pockets. Using controlled cooling technology freezes fat cells, causing them to crystallize and naturally flush out of your body over time. This process, known as cryolipolysis, is safe and effective and involves little to no downtime. CoolSculpting can sculpt various areas like the abdomen, thighs, love handles, and more, helping you achieve a slimmer, more defined appearance without surgery or extensive recovery.

How CoolSculpting Works

CoolSculpting operates on the principle of cryolipolysis, which exploits the vulnerability of fat cells to cold temperatures. When a CoolSculpting applicator is placed on the targeted area, it administers controlled cooling, around 30 to 40 degrees Fahrenheit. This induces a process where fat cells exposed to extreme cold freeze and undergo apoptosis, or cell death.

Over several weeks, the body’s natural metabolic processes recognize the damaged fat cells as waste and remove them from the body. Because other tissues, such as skin and muscles, have higher resistance to cold, they remain unharmed. This results of your CoolSculpting in Newport News and Williamsburg in a noticeable reduction in fat volume in the treated area, revealing a slimmer, more contoured physique.

CoolSculpting Treatment in Hampton Roads

Your CoolSculpting treatment begins with a consultation where our skilled professionals assess your specific goals and problem areas. Once you’re determined to be a suitable candidate, you’ll be prepared for the procedure.

During treatment, you’ll be comfortably seated or lying down. A gel pad and the CoolSculpting applicator will be placed on the designated area to protect your skin and ensure a snug fit. As the treatment begins, you’ll initially feel a chill and some pressure, but this sensation quickly fades as the area becomes numb due to the cold. This process usually takes around 35-60 minutes per area, allowing you to relax, read, or even catch up on work during the treatment.

You may experience mild numbness, tenderness, or swelling in the treatment areas, but these side effects diminish within a few hours or days. You can return to your daily activities immediately after the procedure, as there’s no downtime. CoolSculpting utilizes controlled cooling to freeze fat cells beneath your skin’s surface. These fat cells crystallize and eventually die off. Over the following weeks, your body’s natural processes eliminate these damaged fat cells. Optimal results usually appear after three months.

CoolSculpting Recovery Guidelines:

  • Take it easy for the first few days post-treatment.
  • Drink plenty of water to support your body’s natural processes.
  • Steer clear of strenuous workouts for a few days to allow your body to recover.
  • Gentle massaging can help with circulation and fat cell elimination.
  • If you experience any discomfort, over-the-counter pain relievers can be helpful.
  • Maintain a balanced diet to support your body’s recovery and fat loss.
  • Protect the treated area from excessive sun exposure to prevent any adverse reactions.
  • If recommended, use compression garments to aid in healing and reduce swelling.
  • Keep your scheduled follow-up appointments to monitor your progress.
