There are numerous people who struggle with body issues because of excess fat. Some areas just do not respond to exercise and diet, and this can cause a lot of disappointment and self-esteem issues

The way you perceive yourself is very important. If you have a good perception of yourself, then that will come across in the way you carry yourself and talk to people. If you have a bad perception of yourself, you’ll be less confident when you introduce yourself and interact with the people around you. This can lead to misunderstandings and miscommunications.

Some people who are dealing with excess stubborn fat seek medical help. While liposuction is effective, it is an invasive procedure that requires downtime and comes with various risks. For those looking for an alternative non-invasive option, we offer CoolSculpting to patients in the Santa Fe and Albuquerque area. This device can melt fat by freezing it.


The CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-approved and has been clinically proven to be safe and effective. With CoolSculpting, you can achieve a firmer, fitter, and more toned body within a few hours. The procedure can be used on anyone seeking to get rid of unwanted fat in a controlled and non-surgical way.

CoolSculpting uses a device that can sculpt and tone your problem areas by freezing the excess fat in those areas. It can be used to target fat cells in parts of your body where exercise alone has failed to do the trick. The treatment can be used in areas such as your hips, abdomen, back, buttocks, and thighs.

The device utilizes a process known as selective cryolipolysis. What makes it selective is that it is able to specifically target only the fat cells and leave the muscles and skin around your chosen area unharmed.

The CoolScuplting Process

To begin the CoolSculpting process, a warming gel pad is placed on the area of the patient’s body that is undergoing treatment. This pad protects the external skin from the cooling energy.

Paddles are then placed around the targeted area, and medical suction is applied to keep the fat in place. Cooling energy reduces the temperature of the region, causing the lipids in the targeted fat cells to crystallize.

During the procedure, the patient will feel no pain, so no anesthesia or sedation will be needed. Because the treatment is so comfortable, patients can read, use handheld mobile devices, or even sleep during it.

Once the treatment is complete, the patient’s body will eliminate the targeted fat cells within couple of months using natural processes. This leaves them with a fitter, firmer, physique.

After Treatment

CoolSculpting requires no downtime, making it extremely convenient. Patients can come in for an appointment during one of their extended lunch breaks and go back to work right afterwards.

As long as the patient keeps to a proper diet and exercise on a daily basis, the results of the treatment can be quite long-lasting.
