CoolSculpting® in Tucson, AZ
Target Stubborn Fat Deposits for a Sculpted Silhouette
Fat deposits in the abdomen, thighs, flanks, and back where the bra line is.
While exercise and diet can achieve a great deal for an individual's health and overall appearance, many patients struggle with unwanted fat deposits in the abdomen, thighs, flanks, and back where the bra line is. These common problem areas often fail to respond to dieting and exercise, causing insecurity and frustration. CoolSculpting® in Tucson offers patients a nonsurgical alternative to liposuction, targeting specific problem areas while allowing patients to resume their normal routine immediately afterward.
Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting® in Arizona?
Ideal CoolSculpting® candidates are women and men in good overall shape who nonetheless struggle with bulges in specific areas, typically the stomach, flanks, and thighs. It is important that patients recognize that this is not a weight loss procedure intended to eliminate a large volume of fat, but rather a treatment tool to target specific areas in an otherwise healthy patient. Patients who believe that CoolSculpting® might be the solution to their struggle with specific problem areas should schedule a consultation to discuss their needs, concerns, and goals with a licensed dermatologist.
What Can I Expect During a CoolSculpting® Treatment in Tucson, AZ?
The length of a CoolSculpting® session varies depending on the size and number of treatment areas, as many patients choose to address multiple problem areas in a single session. Depending on the number of areas being addressed, the dermatologist may recommend breaking the session into multiple appointments. Prior to the procedure, patients should avoid sunburns, which might cause discomfort in the treatment area, as well as supplements and medications that can thin the blood, as this might increase the likelihood of bruising following the appointment.
CoolSculpting® is sufficiently mild, and patients do not require sedation or anesthetics. Many patients choose to read, watch a movie, or work on a computer or phone during the procedure. During the appointment, an applicator delivers controlled cooling to the targeted areas to freeze fat cells via a gel pad and applicator placed on the targeted areas. Initially, the sensation is cold, but the intensity of the cold subsides as the session continues. Some patients experience a mild tugging or pinching sensation, as well as mild bruising, swelling, redness, and tingling in the hours and days following a CoolSculpting® appointment.

One of the most significant advantages of CoolSculpting® is that it permanently destroys fat cells, reducing the number of them in the targeted area by 20 to 25 percent. After the session, the patient's body processes and eliminates the fat cells, with positive results visible in as little as three weeks following treatment, and the most positive impact visible about two months after treatment.
Following treatment, patients can resume their normal routine, including work, errands, and socializing.
