Elk Grove patients ask, “Does CoolSculpting treatment work?”

Dr. Gerald Bock offers CoolSculpting treatment to help patients get rid of stubborn fat.

A healthy diet and exercise program is often recommended for patients who want to lose weight and regain a shapely figure. However, for some patients, diet and exercise are not enough, and the unwanted pouch or love handles may still be there. With locations in Stockton, Lodi, and Elk Grove, Dr. Gerald Bock offers CoolSculpting treatment to help patients get rid of stubborn fat.

CoolSculpting treatments for targeted fat reduction

CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared, non-surgical, non-invasive fat reduction treatment. It precisely targets and destroys unwanted fat. A gel pad and applicator are placed on the treatment site. This freezes fat cells. The frozen fat cells die off and are eliminated by the body over a period of a few months. The destroyed fat cells are gone forever and will not grow again in that same area.

CoolSculpting procedures are not limited to a single area of the body. With different treatment applicators available, targeted areas may include:

  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Arms

Treatments are customized for each patient’s needs. CoolSculpting treatments are non-invasive and are performed in the office without anesthesia. There is no scarring, nor is there a lengthy recovery period. Side effects are mild and should subside within a couple days of the treatment.

Does CoolSculpting work?

CoolSculpting is one of the top non-surgical treatments because it is an effective treatment. The procedure treats targeted areas of stubborn fat. With over 5 million procedures performed worldwide, patients achieve noticeable, lasting results. After a single treatment, fat cells in the treated areas are reduced by 20-25%.

CoolSculpting has proven to be successful at targeting unwanted pockets of fat. It is a safe treatment that leaves the surrounding tissue unharmed. The procedure helps patients achieve their desired body shapes. Clothes fit better and patients get a self-esteem boost. With a number of safety features, patients enjoy the benefits of an effective fat reduction treatment without the risks of liposuction surgery.
