Dr. Carol Wray offers CoolSculpting® to patients in the Roanoke Valley and surrounding areas including Salem, Blacksburg, Lynchburg and West Virginia, looking for a non-surgical option at removing excess fat.

What is CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive procedure that works through controlled cooling to target fat cells underneath the skin.  CoolSculpting® treats stubborn fat that diet and exercise alone can’t seem to touch.  It treats superficial fat cells around the waist, stomach, thighs, back, arms, and underneath the chin without harming surrounding skin or tissue.  The treated fat cells are then metabolized naturally from your body, and can leave the treated area sculpted and smooth.

The procedure is FDA-cleared, safe and effective. CoolSculpting® has been used to treat over one million people.

Trained clinicians place the CoolSculpting® device on the targeted areas.  Those areas are pulled between cooling panels by suction.  The device then cools the fat cells to just above freezing causing destructive crystals to form on the fat cells.  The destroyed tissues are naturally eliminated from the body.   It is important to know that the surrounding tissues are not affected by this process. Approximately 22% of the fat that has been treated is eliminated.

What areas can CoolSculpting ® treat?

CoolSculpting® is FDA cleared to treat superficial fat cells in the waist, stomach, back, “love handles”, flanks, inner & outer thighs, chest, knees, and underneath the chin without harming surrounding tissue or skin.

CoolSculpting® Recovery

Because CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive procedure, there is no recovery time necessary.  You can return to your normal activities immediately following your procedure.  Afterwards, you may experience numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, and stinging.  These are temporary and will resolve with time. Results are long-lasting as long as there is no substantial weight gain.  It’s important to remember that to maintain your CoolSculpting® results, we suggest you follow a healthy diet and exercise plan.
