Piedmont Plastic Surgery & Dermatology is excited to offer a new approach that is non-invasive and has shown significant results in clinical studies for removing fat without the potential risks and downtime of invasive procedures. We have found the procedure to be extremely effective, especially on resistant localized areas such as back fat, love handles and the isolated belly fat. CoolSculpting is extremely comfortable and patients are highly satisfied.
Cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), CoolSculpting gently cools unwanted fat cells in the body thereby inducing a natural, controlled elimination of fat cells. Based on science developed by the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Mass., in the United States, this breakthrough is based on a vast body of research that demonstrates that fat cells are more susceptible to cold and are selectively, painlessly and permanently destroyed. Starting several weeks after the procedure, cooled fat cells begin a process called “apoptosis” and begin to shrink and disappear. The body proceeds to naturally and gradually eliminate the cooled fat cells, reducing the thickness of the fat layer.
