What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is the technique in which fat deposits are removed from the body through cryolipolysis. Cryolipolysis is a method of applying intensely cold temperatures to unwanted fat cells, essentially “freezing” them into stasis. Don’t worry, the surrounding skin and soft tissue is kept comfortable throughout a CoolSculpting procedure. The treatment only targets unwanted fat cells. For instance: the bulky deposits around the knees.
After the CoolSculpting process sufficiently cools your knee fat, your body takes over. The lymphatic system processes frozen cells naturally, recognizing the cells as waste. Your body eliminates the frozen cells over the course of 3 to 4 months

Complementary and Alternative Procedures
Your knees are not the only area of the body that can be slimmed and sculpted through the science of cryolipolysis. If you have other “problem areas” you want to address, consider the following options available at Bridgetown Aesthetics.
Is CoolSculpting painful?
Bridgetown Aesthetics monitors your comfort throughout every CoolSculpting session. You may experience a brief stinging or tingling sensation as your skin adjusts to the intense cold. These feelings will subside after 5-10 minutes.
How much fat does CoolSculpting remove?
Each patient is unique and individual results will vary. Depending on your anatomy, you may experience up to 25% fat reduction in the target area (in this case, the knees) after each CoolSculpting session.
How is CoolSculpting different from liposuction?
Vaser liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure and CoolSculpting is non-invasive. During Vaser lipo, the surgeon targets and liquefies unwanted fat deposits. The fat cells are bathed with a tumescent liquid to loosen them, then they are gently vacuumed from the body. CoolSculpting, on the other hand, requires no incisions or anesthesia. To discuss which approach is right for your cosmetic needs, contact Bridgetown Aesthetics.
