CoolSculpting® is Now FDA-Cleared for Fat Reduction in Bra Strap, Back, and Other Areas

Posted: Aug | 11


CoolSculpting® has quickly become one of the most popular non-surgical procedures available at Dermatology & Laser Surgery Center to help patients recontour their bodies and feel great about their appearance. This innovative technique has helped both men and women significantly reduce excess fat that has accumulated in areas such as the abdomen, love handles, and thighs. The CoolMini™ component has also proven effective at reducing the appearance of a “double chin.”

Recently, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration cleared CoolSculpting® to reduce fat bulges affecting areas around the bra straps, the back, and under the buttocks. These particular areas often present problems for individuals who may otherwise be in tip-top physical shape and follow strict diet and exercise routines. CoolSculpting® offers a way to diminish excess fat in these regions without the need for surgical procedures such as liposuction. The CoolSculpting® technique utilizes advanced cooling technology to cool fat cells in targeted areas of the body. This causes the fat cells to break down and subsequently filter out of the body through natural processes. CoolSculpting® involves no needles or incisions, and typically requires no downtime after treatment. The entire procedure can be performed as an outpatient, and most patients are able to resume work or other daily activities immediately after the procedure.
