The 3 advantages to CoolAdvantage™ Coolsculpting®

Coolsculpting® key information

The CoolSculpting procedure eliminates stubborn fat safely and effectively, without surgery or downtime. This fat reduction treatment is the only FDA-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate diet- and exercise-resistant fat. CoolSculpting results are proven, noticeable, and lasting, so you’ll look and feel great from every angle.

Freeze away fat? It comes down to science. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.

Dual CoolAdvantage™ Coolsculpting®

Dr. Ferland is the first in Richmond VA to provide Dual CoolAdvantage™ Coolsculpting®. Dual sculpting provides more treatments in less time. You may not even get through a complete Netflix movie. Just sit back and relax.

 

Treatment Plan

You can reshape your body! We will develop a customized CoolSculpting treatment plan that addresses your problem areas. Additional sessions may further enhance your results. Your individualized treatment plan will be tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.

What to Expect

Sit back and relax. Once the treatments are on your body you will be able to

  • Take a nap
  • Do some work
  • Read a book
  • Or watch a Netflix movie.

The Coolsculpting procedure is completely non-surgical so there is no down time. You can return to work or go to the gym.

In a few weeks and the months following your procedure, your body will start to clean up the fat that has undergone apoptosis (a natural cell death) from the Coolsculpting treatment. These dead fat cells are safely and naturally eliminated by your body. Once these fat cells are gone, they are gone for good and your new shape will appear.

The ideal Coolsculpting candidate is someone who is close to their ideal body weight or BMI (body mass index of 18.5 to 25) but has a few fatty areas resistant to diet and exercise. If you have some trouble areas after all your hard work you are likely a very good candidate for Coolsculpting.

In the mirror, are you ready to love every view of you? The sooner you set up your consultation, the sooner you’ll see results in the mirror. Contact us today to find out if the CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is right for you. Call 804 346 8700 for your free Coolsculpting consultation.
