Freezing Fat Reduces Bulk in Targeted Areas for Slimmer Contours in New Jersey

Anyone who wishes a specific part of their body were slimmer likely understands the frustration that dieting and exercise can cause. Even the most committed person can eat nothing but healthy foods and work out every day, but still see bulging pockets of fat that remain untouched. With CoolSculpting®, New Jersey’s The Peer Group can make a noticeable change—even if morning sit-ups and lunchtime carrot sticks have failed.

The problem is not that dieting and exercising don’t work to reduce fat. As healthy lifestyle choices go, nothing beats eating well and remaining physically active. Both strategies can keep a heart healthy and result in overall weight loss. Targeted or spot reduction of stubborn fat pockets, however, simply isn’t possible without some outside help. That’s where the nonsurgical treatment known as CoolSculpting® comes in.

What Is CoolSculpting®?

Genetics play a large part in how and where people gain and lose fat on their bodies, which is why some people slim down all over, while others struggle to lose a double chin or obvious gut. You can’t pick and choose which areas respond to traditional fat-reduction efforts—and even if you could, the fat cells in questions are not going away. Successful dieting simply causes fat cells to shrink, not disappear altogether.

CoolSculpting® takes a different approach. The device actually removes fat cells from targeted areas by freezing them, which prompts the cells to break down so that the body can remove the cellular components. This results in true and lasting volume reduction focused on a particular area.

The technology powering CoolSculpting® works because fat cells freeze at a temperature that is low enough to crystalize them, but not low enough to damage skin, muscle, or other types of cells.

Patients should understand that CoolSculpting® is a fat-reduction treatment—not a weight-loss program. The results are intended to be cosmetic and not for improving overall health.

CoolSculpting® Treatment Details

After a consultation to go over which areas of stubborn fat should be reduced, one of The Peer Group’s estheticians will handle the CoolSculpting® treatment itself, which involves no incisions or invasive techniques. No anesthesia is required, because the device merely sits on the surface of the skin or uses gentle suction to pull the targeted tissue between its cooling panels.

Patients may feel a cold or pinching sensation at the start of a treatment session, but these sensations typically “fade to the background” after a few minutes. Reading, watching a show on a handheld device, listening to music, or simply relaxing are common ways to pass the time as the CoolSculpting® device works.

A treatment session can take about an hour to complete, but the exact amount of time varies depending on which area or areas a patient wants to treat. Fat freezing can be used virtually anywhere on the body, with many patients choosing CoolSculpting® for the stomach area (abdomen), neck (double chin), and upper arms. It can also slim down the inner and outer thighs, flanks (love handles), and other areas where fat pockets develop.

CoolSculpting® pricing depends on specific treatment details and will be discussed during the consultation.

CoolSculpting® Recovery and Results

Post-treatment side effects include redness, minor swelling, and possible tingling in the treated area as it warms up again. Any such effects should clear up within a few hours of finishing the CoolSculpting® session.

Fat cells that are crystallized by freezing die due to the cold. The body removes these dead cells from the area in the following weeks and months, so the visible reduction happens gradually.

CoolSculpting at The Peer Group

A typical reduction from a single session involves breaking down around 20 to 25 percent of the fat cells in the area, so patients who want a more dramatic effect often find that two to three sessions, spaced a month apart, yield optimal results.

Other Options for Fat Reduction

SculpSure® works with heat as opposed to cold, sending laser energy into targeted areas to disrupt fat cells.

Patients seeking a more dramatic volume reduction or results that are visible faster can benefit from liposuction, which is a surgical technique.
