Introducing Coolsculpting: A Revolutionary Body Sculpting Technology
Dr. Light and his team are proud to introduce their patients to the revolutionary body sculpting treatment – CoolSculpting!
Imagine having the opportunity to eliminate unwanted fat cells from your abdominal, thigh, or back without incisions or downtime. You can come in for treatment at lunch, go back to work immediately after, and three weeks later start to notice a leaner, sleeker contour in previous areas of stubborn fat bulges.
Patients particularly love seeing improvement with these same areas over the ensuing months, getting leaner and trimmer consistently. With advancements in aesthetic medicine, CoolSculpting isn’t a pipe dream – it’s the only FDA-approved non-surgical fat-reducing treatment which uses controlled cooling to eradicate stubborn fat which resists diet and exercise routines.

WHAT IS COOLSCULPTING?
This treatment is a non-invasive, clinically proven procedure to reduce fat in selected areas using the patented cooling technology, cryolipolysis. It cools fat cells, thereby inducing natural, controlled destruction. Based on science developed by the Wellman Center for Photomedicine, at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, this breakthrough comes from a vast body of research which demonstrates fat cells are more susceptible to cold, after which they are selective, painlessly, and permanently destroyed by the body’s lymphatic system.
Several weeks after the procedure, affected fat cells experience a process called apoptosis and begin to shrink and disappear. The body proceeds to eliminate the dead fat cells, reducing fat deposits naturally.
COOLSCULPTING in DECATUR, AL: WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE PROCEDURE?
Unlike other fat reduction techniques, CoolSculpting involves no needles, surgery, or downtime. During the procedure, we apply a gel pad and applicator to deliver controlled cooling to the treatment area to target unwanted fat. The treatment creates little to no discomfort with some tingling and coldness in the treatment area. CoolSculpting is so tolerable, many patients read, stream videos, work on tablets, or take a nap.
Treatments last approximately one hour and can easily fit into a busy schedule. Patients can have additional procedures for more pronounced effects if they desire. On average, each Decatur CoolSculpting procedure removes up to 25% of fat in the treated areas, and patients see results as soon as three weeks following treatment, with improvements continuing for up to four months.

Before CoolSculpting, liposuction was the preferred treatment for fat reduction. Liposuction is highly effective as a body contouring procedure; however, it is surgery and includes incisions, anesthesia, and associated downtime. Many patients prefer CoolSculpting because of its comfort and convenience. However, patients may be better served by liposuction when higher amounts of fat need to be removed to create the ideal body contours.

AM I A GOOD COOLSCULPTING CANDIDATE?
CoolSculpting fat-reduction is designed for patients who have unwanted fat in one or more areas. It is not a weight-loss plan for those who are overweight or obese. Suitable candidates are close to their targeted weight, have noticeable bulges in certain areas, and want to improve their body contours. Many patients seek treatment for a non-surgical alternative to liposuction.
HOW MUCH DOES COOLSCULPTING COST?
Costs can vary. We provide each patient with a personalized cost estimate at their consultation. Schedule a visit to meet with a member of our team to learn more about this transformative procedure.
CAN I HAVE THE PROCEDURE DONE ON ANY PART OF MY BODY?
CoolSculpting is FDA-approved for the treatment of visible fat pads in the flank, abdomen, thigh, buttocks, and upper arm areas. Also, treatment is suitable in the chin and neck areas and can help with that muffin top and back fat.
WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE?
Initially, as the applicators are applied, patients experience a cooling sensation which dissipates quickly. Also, you may feel some pulling as suction is applied to draw the target area to the applicator. After about five minutes, the treatment area will numb and be quite comfortable. Many patients bring their tablet or laptop to work, read, watch videos or explore social media. Some take a nap.
There may be some tingling after treatment during the post-procedure massage. You should be able to return to your normal routine right after treatment.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I GAIN WEIGHT AFTER COOLSCULPTING?
Although most patients find inspiration with their results and lead a healthy lifestyle to maintain optimal weight, some do put on extra pounds after the treatment. When this happens, the contour of the treatment areas will remain the same; body changes are experienced proportionally.
WHAT IS RECOVERY LIKE? WILL I NEED TO MISS WORK?
CoolSculpting is ideal for busy men and women, largely due to its easy recovery. Most patients will not need to miss work and can return to their daily activities immediately. You may feel tender or sore in the treated areas. Some patients experience mild redness or temporary bruising. Mild cramping or tingling is also normal.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COOLSCULPTING AND BODYTITE?
Patients seeking non-surgical body contouring may be curious about the differences between CoolSculpting and BodyTite. Both treatments offer powerful body shaping with limited downtime. CoolSculpting uses intense cold to destroy fat cells while BodyTite uses radiofrequency energy.
Coolsculpting focuses on fat loss. BodyTite eliminates fat and tightens the skin.
