Is Cool Sculpting Right for Me?

Many of us have stubborn areas of fat that are not easily eliminated through diet and exercise. If you are frustrated with unwanted fat around the abdominal area or elsewhere, Cool Sculpting could be right for you. In Tulsa, OK, Cool Sculpting is available at Midtown Dermatology, where Dr. Lynn Anderson and Dr. Kristen Rice can help you safely sculpt your body without surgery. 

What is Cool Sculpting? 

Cool Sculpting is a painless non-surgical method for safely and effectively sculpting the body by removing stubborn fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. Cool Sculpting is an excellent alternative to liposuction for individuals who wish to eliminate stubborn fat without undergoing surgery. At our dermatology practice in Tulsa, OK, Cool Sculpting can be used to treat several areas of the body, including: 

  • Stomach
  • Back
  • Sides 
  • Thighs 
  • Underarms 

How Cool Sculpting Works

Cool Sculpting is an FDA-approved procedure for permanently eliminating unwanted fat by freezing the fat cells in the treatment area, such as the belly or thighs. The body perceives frozen fat cells as dead tissue and naturally responds by working to remove those cells. The frozen fat cells are flushed out of the body gradually over time. It usually takes between one to two months for the body to completely remove the destroyed fat cells.  

The Cool Sculpting procedure takes about one hour. During the treatment session, a special device targets and freezes fat cells in the treatment area. Fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than other types of cells so Cool Sculpting can be performed without affecting other cells in the body. The procedure is painless and many patients read, listen to the music, nap, or simply relax during their treatment session. Our experienced dermatologists can help you decide if Cool Sculpting is right for you. 

If you are looking for a non-invasive and painless way to remove stubborn fat cells that are unaffected by diet and exercise, Cool Sculpting could be right for you.
