CoolSculpting® in Birmingham, AL

Two Harvard researchers accidently discovered that freezing can be used to eliminate fat cells in the skin. Their discovery has evolved into the development of the CoolSculpting® system, available at Dermatologists of Birmingham for men and women in Birmingham, Alabaster, Shelby and Chilton Counties and surrounding areas in Alabama.

What is CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive treatment for unwanted fat. People who have CoolSculpting® treatments typically see a 20 to 25 percent reduction in fat without surgery. The procedure is recommended for almost any area of the body, including the abdomen, love handles, hips, inner and outer thighs, arms, bra fat and chin.

Benefits of CoolSculpting®

If you want to eliminate excess fat, you should first try changing your diet and increasing your activity level, including the amount or intensity of your exercising. But as most of us know, this does not always work for stubborn areas of the body, however. CoolSculpting® gives you an option when diet and exercise fail. The procedure requires no surgery, so you will not have scars or a lengthy recovery. Treatment times are 30 to 60 minutes.

How Does CoolSculpting® Work?

CoolSculpting® uses a process of freezing to destroy unwanted fat cells in the skin. The mechanism was discovered by researchers at Harvard University while working on a project unrelated to body sculpting. As the fat cells die, the body eliminates them through natural processes. With continued commitment to eating right and exercising, you can enjoy many years of a more contoured body.

What to Expect from CoolSculpting®

We perform CoolSculpting® in treatment rooms that are designed to enhance your experience. You relax during the entire procedure. The freezing technology is applied to the treatment area with a device that is connected to the CoolSculpting® system. The device gently pulls the skin inside and applies the freezing energy. The procedure takes 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.

You may see a change in the fat bulges a month after the treatment, but full results take three to four months. We may recommend several treatments to reach your transformation goal.
