Can CoolSculpting® Help You Get Rid of a Muffin Top?
CoolSculpting® Elite is FDA-cleared to treat nine areas of the body, including frustrating spots like your muffin top. You can have CoolSculpting® Elite in these areas:
- Inner and outer thighs
- Back fat
- Bra fat
- Upper arms
- Under the chin or jaw
- Under the buttocks (banana roll)
Each muffin top is different so treatment may involve the abdomen, flanks, or both. These are among the most popular CoolSculpting® Elite treatment locations, and this advanced system allows your New York Skin & Vein provider to treat two areas simultaneously.
How Does CoolSculpting® Elite Work?
CoolSculpting® Elite works because fat cells freeze to death at a different temperature than skin cells. This treatment uses external cold technology to freeze the fat cells till they break down. The skin remains unaffected, making CoolSculpting® Elite a non-invasive, no-downtime option for fat reduction. Your lymphatic system will filter away the dead fat cells over time.
Is There Any Downtime After CoolSculpting® Elite?
CoolSculpting® Elite requires no downtime. The skin is not damaged during treatment, so it requires no special care. You may experience redness, sensitivity, or numbness in the treated area that typically fades within a few days. The lack of downtime contributes to the popularity of CoolSculpting® Elite as a body sculpting treatment.
