What is CoolSculpting procedure?
CoolSculpting uses a non-invasive handpiece, which suctions on to the area of the body being treated. This handpiece remains in place throughout the entire one hour treatment. During this time, the temperature of the treated area is reduced to a level at which fat cells begin to bebroken down; this process is referred to as cryolipolysis. As fat cells are broken down, the body’s own immune system flushes them away from the site. The result is a significant decrease in the fat cells at the treated area, which can smooth out fat bulges and improve the appearance of your body by fat reduction. The results are not seen immediately, but 2-4 months following a single treatment, the maximum result can be appreciated. Coolsculpt mini for that unwanted chin fat is now available!
