You may have started to notice that you have certain areas of your body that hold on to fat more than others. For you this may be a double chin, love handles, or arm fat. Trying to lose weight by dieting and exercising may be effective in seeing the number on the scale go down, but it’s less effective in seeing these problem spots shrink. If you’re looking for a way to target a specific area (or areas) on your body, then CoolSculpting® at Miller Aesthetic Medicine in Tavernier, FL may be the best option for you.

How Does CoolSculpting® Work?
We’ve seen countless patients come in who are frustrated with the stubborn deposits of fat that are sticking to their bodies. CoolSculpting® is a revolutionary treatment that is FDA-cleared to effectively eliminate fat cells in the target area. The treatment uses cryolipolysis to destroy the fat cells, resulting in a contoured body you can be proud of.
The device is attached to the area you are looking to slim down, meaning it is a completely non-invasive and non-surgical procedure. Once the device has been hooked up, the applicator goes to work freezing the fat cells beneath the surface of your skin. Our providers will apply a clear gel pad first in order to protect your skin and other tissues from the intense cold.
Fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than other cells, so CoolSculpting® is able to safely eliminate the localized fat deposits without harming the rest of your body. You can relax, read a book, or play on your phone as the applicator does its job. Once the fat cells have been lowered to a specific temperature, the cells gradually diminish until they are naturally flushed out through the body’s lymphatic system.
Many of our patients wonder if the results from their treatment are permanent. The short answer is yes. The number of fat cells in your body is steady after you have passed through adolescence, meaning destroyed fat cells will not regenerate or come back after your treatment. Of course, if you do not maintain a healthy lifestyle you could see the weight come back in other areas, so it is important to keep up with your exercise and diet routine.
