Getting rid of stubborn body fat can be difficult. Even with a good diet and regular exercise routine, a lot of people still find that they have pockets of fat in certain areas that they just can’t get rid of. At Keller Aesthetic Specialists in Atlanta, GA, we can help you achieve your fat loss goals by using CoolSculpting® Elite to effectively target your problem areas.

How Does CoolSculpting® Elite Eliminate Fat?

CoolSculpting® Elite is a non-surgical body contouring treatment that uses advanced cooling technology to freeze and eliminate fat cells. CoolSculpting® Elite is an FDA-approved treatment that is capable of providing long-lasting results. 

CoolSculpting® works through a process called cryolipolysis. The fat cells in the body are much more susceptible to cold temperatures than the other cells in your body. Prolonged exposure to colder temperatures damages these fat cells which will then die and be naturally expelled from the body. Because the surrounding cells are more resilient to cold, CoolSculpting® Elite does not cause any damage to them.

How Is The Treatment Performed?

Your CoolSculpting® Elite treatment will be performed at Keller Aesthetic Specialists in Atlanta, GA. During the treatment process, special CoolSculpting® Elite applicators are placed on the areas of the body being treated. These applicators are curved to suit the contours of the body for more uniform coverage and results.

The applicators hold the targeted tissue in place using gentle suction throughout the fat freezing process. CoolSculpting® Elite is not painful. You may experience sensations of cold, tingling, and/or numbness during your procedure. Most treatments only take around 35 minutes to complete. 

What Is the Recovery Like?

CoolSculpting® Elite is a non-surgical and completely non-invasive treatment which means you will not have to worry about taking time off of work to let any incisions heal. You should be able to resume all of your normal activities right away. You may experience some redness and swelling around the treated areas, but these symptoms will subside over the next few days. 

How Long Will My Results Last?

The number of treatments needed will depend on your goals. Once the targeted fat cells have been destroyed, they will not come back. This means that your results should be permanent. However, the remaining fat cells in the area can still expand with weight gain. To maintain your results, it is recommended that you maintain an active lifestyle and follow a healthy and balanced diet. 

What Should I Know Before My Treatment?

While CoolSculpting® Elite is a safe and effective treatment for fat reduction, it is not FDA-approved to help tighten skin. CoolSculpting® Elite is best suited for patients with healthy skin elasticity in the targeted area(s). Keller Aesthetic Specialists does offer non-surgical skin tightening using Exilis Ultra to complement CoolSculpting® Elite or as a stand-alone treatment.
