Despite changes in lifestyle, including diet and exercise, certain areas of the body can remain unflattering, storing fatty deposits. There is a new solution for this, and it is not liposuction. CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive treatment to help reduce those fatty deposits and give you the toned, sculpted body you desire. Located in Phoenix and serving Chandler, Gilbert, Ahwatukee and surrounding areas, Dr. Leverett of Body By Leverett performs CoolSculpting® on patients who want a slimmer figure without the need for surgery.
What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is a safe, non-invasive procedure that works by freezing fat cells underneath the skin, which leaves the surrounding skin, muscle and tissue unharmed while effectively destroying fat cells. The fat cells are then metabolized by the body, which creates the slimmer figure that patients seek.
How Much Does CoolSculpting® Cost?
The cost for CoolSculpting® will vary from patient to patient depending on the size and number of areas being treated. To help make CoolSculpting® more affordable and accessible to our patients, Dr. Leverett offers financing through CareCredit® and Prosper Healthcare Lending. Our office also accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, cash and cashier’s checks.
What are the Benefits of CoolSculpting®?
The main benefit of CoolSculpting® is that it produces a thinner, more attractive appearance while offering a safer treatment than other fat-reduction procedures. In addition, CoolSculpting® offers the following benefits:
- Reduces stubborn fatty deposits
- No needles, cuts or incisions
- Fast treatment
- No downtime, quick recovery
How Does the CoolSculpting® Procedure Work?
Our patients describe CoolSculpting® as a comfortable procedure. CoolSculpting® requires no anesthetic or preparation. During the procedure, a special cooling applicator is placed on the area being treated. The applicator will apply some suction and cool temperatures, so you may feel a pinch or coldness. However, the initial cooling feeling dissipates within a few minutes, and you can expect to sit comfortably for the duration of the treatment. The treatment lasts for approximately 30 minutes but varies based on the target area being treated.
CoolSculpting® Recovery and Results
Since CoolSculpting® is non-invasive, most patients find that they are able to return to work and other normal activities immediately following their appointment. It is normal to have some bruising, swelling or redness afterward, but these side effects generally resolve within a few days or weeks.
CoolSculpting® is designed to improve the treated area over time. You may begin to see results as quickly as a few weeks but will notice more dramatic results about two months after treatment. The body continues to change for about six months following treatment.
Am I a Candidate for CoolSculpting®?
If you have unwanted fat in specific areas of your body that are proving to be resistant to diet and exercise, you may be a good candidate for CoolSculpting®. The team at Body by Leverett can treat most areas of the body including the chin, bra bulges, fatty pockets underneath the buttocks, as well as unwanted fat in the abdomen, flanks, upper arms, and inner and outer thighs.
So, if you are close to your ideal weight, in good health and want a more toned appearance, CoolSculpting® may be right for you.
