Robert Langdon, MD, Board-Certified Cosmetic Surgeon and Dermatologist and Medical Director at The Langdon Center for Laser & Cosmetic Surgery has announced that CoolSculpting®, an innovative technology that freezes away unwanted fat, is now available at the Langdon Center, making it the first medical practice in the Connecticut Shoreline region to offer this breakthrough in non-invasive fat reduction.
“I am thrilled to introduce CoolSculpting to Connecticut patients. This breakthrough technology allows me to help refine the areas of patients’ bodies that have resisted diet and exercise,” said Dr. Langdon. “CoolSculpting is an exciting new approach that is non-invasive and has shown significant results in clinical studies for removing fat without the potential risks and downtime of invasive surgical procedures. The procedure is extremely effective, especially on resistant localized areas such as back fat, love handles and isolated belly fat.”
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.
CoolSculpting patients have been very impressed with the results—particularly because this is a non-invasive treatment. Within several weeks of the first treatment, most patients notice that the fat around the treated area has lessened considerably and that clothes fit much better. “It’s reviews such as these that led the Langdon Center to select CoolSculpting technology,” says Dr. Langdon.
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 typically take between one to two hours to complete. Patients can have additional procedures to increase the amount of fat reduction 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.
