CoolSculpting in Reno is a revolutionary technology that uses a precisely controlled cooling method called Cryolipolysis which targets, cools and eliminates fat cells. After a CoolSculpting procedure the body continues to break down the treated fat cells, now in a crystallized or frozen state, leading to fat cell death. Over the next two to four months they are naturally flushed from the body.
CoolSculpting procedure is designed to target and destroy 20%-25% of the fat cells in the treated area. Diet, exercise and other procedures may shrink fat cells, leaving an open opportunity to increase the size of those same fat cells from a lifestyle shift. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. Cool Sculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. Over the course of the following weeks after your treatment, your body processes the fat and eliminates it from the body naturally. While dieting and exercise makes the fat cells smaller, this fat freezing procedure gets rid of them completely, allowing you to enjoy positive and long-lasting results of CoolSculpting!
Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting in Reno?One benefit of CoolSculpting is that, unlike with diet and exercise, fat cells are actually destroyed and removed from the body. This means the same fat cells cannot return or enlarge with weight gain.
There are several other benefits of CoolSculpting:
It is a low-risk procedure for most people.
The skin barrier is not broken or compromised, removing most of the risk of complications, such as infection and scarring.
There are few reported adverse reactions or outcomes.
There is no need to take time off from work or everyday activities afterward.
The results look natural, as they develop gradually in the weeks following the surgery.
It can help people who have lost weight or at a healthy weight but still have excess fat in particular areas.
There is less risk of regaining weight and results are long-lasting because fat cells are actually destroyed and removed from the body.
The risk of skin dimpling or bumps is low because fat cells are destroyed evenly across a patch of skin.
Overall, the procedure can help boost self-confidence, especially when combined with weight loss achieved through a healthful diet and exercise.
Most people do not feel anything during the procedure, aside from a tugging sensation where the skin is between the device's two cooling panels.
As the procedure does not involve any cutting, tissue manipulation, or anesthesia, most people do not need any recovery time and can immediately resume normal activities.
The only noticeable side effects of the procedure tend to be minor and occur only around the area of treatment. Most minor side effects reduce or go away within a few days to weeks after the procedure.
It is normal, however, to experience numbness or loss of sensation in the treatment area for around a month.

Non Surgical Body Contouring, Which Method Works Best?
In the past, if diet and exercise couldn't get rid of stubborn fat bulges, many patients opted for liposuction, an invasive surgical procedure. Or, they turned to radio frequency devices or infrared technology, but these devices provided limited improvement. With advancements in technology, patients can now reduce unwanted fat bulges and enjoy permanent reduction in fat cells during a non-invasive, non-surgical method called CoolSculpting that provides dramatic results.
Developed by ZELTIQ Aesthetics, Inc., CoolSculpting can reduce areas that are difficult to reach with diet and exercise: love handles, lower belly fat rolls, upper belly fat, muffin top, under bra fat and back fat. It's an incredibly effective technique that improves the contour of the body.
How is this possible? The FDA-cleared CoolSculpting works through a revolutionary technology called cryolipolysis. During cryolipolysis, literally meaning "cold induced fat destruction," fat cells are cooled to a temperature that causes them to be eliminated. The procedure is very safe: the temperature required to destroy fat cells is higher than what would cause damage to skin, muscle and nerves. With CoolSculpting, there is no damage to the surrounding structures.
In most cases, the skin is elastic enough to contract after the treatment. However, it's important to know that if loose skin is the cause of the bulge, then CoolSculpting alone will not treat the condition - a surgical procedure such as a tummy tuck may be needed.
Many patients ask if there is a need to start a new diet or exercise program after CoolSculpting. There is not. It's recommended that patients maintain the same program they did prior to the procedure to maintain their weight.
Most patients need only one CoolSculpting treatment; however, repeat treatments can be performed after three months if additional reduction of the fat bulges is desired. Coolsculpting Before and After Photos show that the results of coolsculpting are impressive and undeniable.
While most people are candidates for CoolSculpting, it's important to consult with a highly qualified physician.
