Dr. Lowney now offers CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting™ is a revolutionary non-invasive procedure for men and women, developed by Harvard scientists, that freezes fat cells while leaving the overlying skin undamaged. The procedure is FDA-cleared and clinically proven to reduce fat in the treated area up to 20% in just one visit. If you have stubborn, exercise resistant fat deposits and have been looking for a surgery free solution with no downtime than CoolSculpting™ may be the perfect procedure for you.
CoolSculpting™ utilizes cold temperatures to target and damage fat cells in the treatment area. These damaged cells are then naturally disposed of by the body, leaving a more contoured look. Dr. Lowney perform the procedure in their Fall River, MA office, and patients walk away from the procedure with little or no side effects.
Is recovery time necessary?
Since this is a non-surgical procedure, no immediate or long-term recovery time is required for patients who have undergone treatment. Patients can get right back to their normal activities like exercise and work without any problem. They may experience some stiffness and a dull feeling in the torso area after their procedure, but this feeling usually subsides in a matter of minutes.
How Long Do Coolsculpting Results Last?
Although Coolsculpting does destroy 20-30 percent of the treatment area’s fat cells, patients should continue to maintain their post-procedure body weight. The adult body will not produce new fat cells, but the old ones can still expand in size.
What’s the Difference between Liposuction and CoolSculpting?
One obvious difference between liposuction and CoolSculpting is that liposuction requires expensive surgery followed by a lengthy recovery, while CoolSculpting does not. While liposuction requires physically removing fat from the body, thus creating surgical risks, with CoolSculpting, patients are able to remove fat without surgery or scarring.
Who is a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting?
Good candidates for this advanced procedure include individuals who maintain a healthy overall lifestyle but are still unable to get rid of stubborn fat deposits. This procedure is not meant for individuals who are overweight or obese. Patients can sit down with Dr. Mark Lowey for a personal consultation to see if they are the right candidate for CoolSculpting.
