Non-surgical Fat Reduction In Stockton
Many adults have trouble spots or problem areas they wish they could fix. A lower abdomen pooch, love handles, saddle bags – no matter what fun name you give them, those areas can cause a person to feel self-conscious or hide their body under loose fitting clothing. Unfortunately, exercise and diet don’t always lead to the desired results. In the past, the only way to address these trouble spots was through surgical procedures. However, even with the best and least invasive procedure, the patient was required to rest and recover for several days.
Now, patients in Stockton, CA, have another option. At the California Skin & Laser Center, Dr. Gerald Bock provides CoolSculpting, a non-surgical fat removal procedure, to help them achieve the results they want without incisions or downtime.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared device that removes unwanted fat cells from the body. The process is effective on many areas of the body including the stomach, thighs, obliques, and back. These areas are especially hard to target with exercise, yet perfect for the CoolSculpting procedure. With the procedure your jeans may fit better, you may feel more confident at the beach, and you may feel more confident overall.
How does CoolSculpting work?
The CoolSculpting device uses two cooling panels. Dr. Bock will position the device on the problem area. The device then pulls the area of the body up between the two panels. Patients will feel a tugging and pulling sensation and a moment of intense cold. The cold sensation soon diminishes and as the device works, the patient can sit back and relax, read, or listen to music. The entire process will take approximately one to two hours.
How long do the results last?
Patients will begin to see results several weeks after treatment, as the fat cells are flushed from the body. While results vary from person to person, most patients see complete results within two to four months. As long as patients maintain a healthy diet and don’t gain additional weight, the CoolSculpting results should remain consistent.
