Even here in the beautiful, laidback Northwest, appearance matters and we’re all trying hard to look our absolute best, but even the most effective efforts may need a finishing touch. That’s why Seattle CoolSculpting at Northwest Vein & Aesthetic Center is growing in popularity throughout Washington State.

After all, if you’re spending hours in the gym, eating a thoroughly healthy diet, and still finding that fat in certain areas just won’t go away, you have every reason to take that last big step to remove that double chin, that stubborn “pooch” on your tummy, or those annoying love handles. If you are looking for a way to do that without plastic surgery, CoolSculpting just may be the perfect solution for you.

What is CoolSculpting?

A nonsurgical alternative to liposuction, CoolSculpting — medically known as cryolipolysisis – literally freezes away fat. This FDA approved treatment works by cooling fat beneath the surface of the skin. After the cells are frozen, they are naturally eliminated from the body over a period of time. Since fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than cells in skin, muscle, and other tissue, the procedure is effective but also completely safe and without any significant side effects.

CoolSculpting is typically performed in one or more treatments that last for roughly one hour. The first results of the treatment should be apparent as early as a month from the time of treatment.  While patients will definitely feel a cooling sensation, there is no significant discomfort involved. Side effects are typically limited to some temporary redness, a possible numbing sensation, and sometimes very mild bruising. At present, no serious issues have been associated with CoolSculpting.

CoolSculpting is not intended to be a substitute for weight loss. It is intended strictly for removing fat from specific parts of the body.
