CoolSculpt is now available at Skinny Me.  We are so excited to announce our new non-surgical fat reducing treatment. We now offer CoolSculpt at our Skinny Me location at 850 Cherry Road Rock Hill, SC, minutes from Charlotte NC. CoolSculpt is safe and effective for both men and women. CoolSculpt is not a substitute for weight loss. Instead, the results are a reduction in fat cells. Specifically designed to treat subcutaneous fat, which is the fat you can pinch, pull or grab. CoolSculpt can treat areas that display this type of fat.*

CoolSculpt works by a process called cryolipolysis, also known as freezing the fat cells. As the fat cells freeze, they go through a process called apoptosis, or cell death, and then are naturally eliminated from the body over a period of a few months. When you gain weight the fat cells in your body get larger, and when you lose weight, the fat cells shrink. Instead of shrinking the fat cells, CoolSculpt is effective at removing the fat cells from the body altogether, resulting in up to a 20%-25% fat reduction in the treated area.*

Once a patient has been assessed, marking the peak areas of fat and applying a protective pad to the skin, the device is applied to the marked areas for treatment. After the cooling device is applied, the patient experiences a gentle suction to the skin, almost like a vacuum. Initially the skin becomes cold, but after a few minutes, the treatment area becomes completely numb. During the procedure you may experience sensations of pulling, tugging, mild pinching, intense cold, tingling, stinging, aching, and cramping at the treatment site. These sensations subside as the area becomes numb. The CoolSculpting device does not affect the skin because the device is designed to target and freeze fat cells only. After the CoolSculpt procedure, a massage is performed on the treated area to break up the cold subcutaneous fat. The massage is an extremely important part of the procedure to initiate the breakdown of the fat cells. Skinny Me has seen more than a 65% improvement in patient results after the addition of the massage to the treatment.*

Areas of treatment are upper arms, bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks, abdomen, flanks, and thighs.*
