Summer is here, and with it comes beach vacations, trips to the pool, shorts, and t-shirts.  Is your body ready for summer fashion?  Winter is often a time when people put on weight due to heavy foods and lack of exercise, then when summer comes around they’re not quite ready for it.  Not to worry, at MD Body Sculpting Center, we offer CoolSculpting, which is a great way to quickly and effectively reduce the appearance of unwanted fat bulges with minimal discomfort and no surgery.*

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that uses innovative cryolipolisis technology to freeze and kill unwanted fat cells.  The CoolSculpting freezing technology selectively targets and destroys fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissue, and is safe and effective with noticeable results.  CoolSculpting is one of the most popular body contouring procedures!

The CoolSculpting procedure takes one hour per side and is typically not painful. Patients usually report a feeling of intense cold, which quickly dissipates.  During a session, patients are free to do what they like, including reading a book or magazine, working on a laptop, listening to music, or even taking a nap.  The MD Body Sculpting Center is one of the few practices on the east coast to offer DualSculpting, which is where two machines are used at the same time in order to cut session time in half.  While normally two hours would be needed to treat both sides of the body, at MD Body Sculpting Center both sides can be done in just one hour!

Why Try CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting provides tangible results and can help men and women feel more comfortable with their bodies.  If you want to contour your body and get rid of small deposits of fat that haven’t responded to diet or exercise, CoolSculpting is a great option.  While the results aren’t as dramatic as those obtained through liposuction, CoolSculpting doesn’t require any downtime or anesthesia.  Patients are free to resume their everyday activities immediately following a treatment, and there is no need to take any time off work.  This type of non-invasive treatment is extremely popular among men and women who don’t have the time to spare for weeks of recovery time.

CoolSculpting is not a tool for weight loss and is most effective on patients who are at or near their ideal weight but who have deposits of fat that don’t respond to diet or exercise. These fat bulges are often genetic in nature and won’t disappear with the typical amount of exercise that the average person can commit to.  CoolSculpting can help to reduce these fat bulges and allow patients to achieve a better body contour.

If you are suffering from unwanted fat bulges, don’t hesitate to contact Maryland Laser Skin and Vein to learn more about CoolSculpting and if it can help you.
