No matter how much we diet and exercise, we may still struggle with small pockets of stubborn fat. “Love handles,” “tummy pooch” and “muffin top” can leave us feeling discouraged after our exhaustive efforts. However, with the latest fat-eliminating procedure, CoolSculpting, the results we’re looking for could be more attainable than we think. In his latest SlideShare presentation, Joel Schlessinger, MD answers frequently asked questions about CoolSculpting, the noninvasive, fat-freezing treatment designed to amplify and expedite gym results.

CoolSculpting uses patented technology to safely freeze fat cells in the body, says Joel Schlessinger, MD.

CoolSculpting is a noninvasive, FDA-approved treatment that uses patented technology to safely freeze fat cells in the body while healthy skin and muscle remain intact. Once the crystallized fat cells die off, they are eliminated gradually over the next 60-90 days through the body’s natural metabolic processes. The procedure involves no incisions and no anesthesia. No fat cells are burned, shattered or extracted. Instead, an applicator is applied directly to the skin’s surface to deliver controlled cooling to targeted fat cells.

Recently, ZELTIQ Aesthetics launched the brand new CoolFit applicator designed to treat a wider range of areas on the body.

Joel Schlessinger, MD recommends CoolSculpting to those with a busy, active lifestyle.

One CoolSculpting treatment lasts for just an hour, and there is virtually no recovery time. It can be done during one’s lunch break, and all activities can immediately resume directly following the procedure. Aside from a little redness or tenderness, there are no side effects.

Since CoolSculpting does not eliminate large areas of fat, the ideal candidate is someone who already maintains a healthy diet and regular exercise regimen, but who would like a leg up when it comes to losing the last 10-15 pounds. It’s also a wonderful option for those with little to no downtime for procedures that require an extended recovery period.
