RALEIGH, N.C., Dec. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CoolSculpting®, an innovative technology that freezes away unwanted fat, is now available at Diehl Plastic Surgery, making it one of the first medical practices in the Triangle to offer two machines for this breakthrough in non-invasive fat reduction.

"Here at Diehl Plastic Surgery we are thrilled with the ease, comfort, and results of this innovative non-surgical fat reduction technique. Patients can lose stubborn fat areas without the downtime or risk usually associated with invasive procedures. There are no garments and patients can immediately return to their normal routine - they LOVE that. We have two CoolSculpting machines, allowing for faster treatments in some areas. Predictable results with minimal risk, that is what patients are looking for today." Cynthia Diehl, MD

Cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), CoolSculpting gently cools unwanted fat cells in the body thereby inducing a natural, controlled elimination of fat cells. Based on science developed by the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Mass., in the United States, this breakthrough is based on a vast body of research that demonstrates that fat cells are more susceptible to cold and are selectively, painlessly and permanently destroyed. Starting several weeks after the procedure, cooled fat cells begin a process called "apoptosis" and begin to shrink and disappear. The body proceeds to naturally and gradually eliminate the cooled fat cells, reducing the thickness of the fat layer.

"I actually enjoyed my CoolSculpting experience. I was comfortable the entire time and am already seeing results in my flanks at 3 weeks. I would have this procedure again without question." Sharon C.

Unlike many other methods of fat reduction, CoolSculpting involves no needles, surgery or downtime. During the procedure, a non-invasive applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling to the treatment area thereby specifically targeting fat. Treatments last between one to two hours. Patients can have additional procedures for more pronounced effects if they desire. On average, each CoolSculpting procedure results in an undeniable reduction of fat in the treated area, and patients can start to see results as soon as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results occurring over a period of two to four months in most patients.
