Accumulation of stubborn fat tissue in certain areas of the body can occur due to genetics, sedentary lifestyles, disease, aging, and other factors. Liposuction is an effective plastic surgery solution to this problem, but many patients want non-surgical alternatives to reduce fat deposits. CoolSculpting is one of the most effective and proven treatments for fat reduction and restoring of more shapely body contours.
CoolSculpting is commonly used to reduce or remove unwanted fat tissue in areas such as buttocks, thighs, abdomen, flanks, back, upper arms, neck, calves, and knees. Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center (MBody), led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin, provides CoolSculpting to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, and surrounding communities.
Difference from Other Procedures
CoolSculpting has revolutionized the field of aesthetic fat reduction with its highly unique and innovative cooling technology. While most non-surgical fat removal procedures involve heating of the fat cells through lasers, ultrasound, RF or other forms of energy, CoolSculpting adopts a reverse technique. It exposes the targeted fat cells to a cold temperature in order to freeze them to their death.
CoolSculpting cooling process was developed by Harvard scientists and the device has been cleared by the FDA. This process called cryolipolysis address specific fat deposits to freeze them. The frozen fat cells eventually break down and get removed from the body through its natural metabolic process. Unlike plastic surgery, the procedure does not involve any cuts, incisions or needles.
