CoolSculpting™ in Portland, Oregon
You exercise regularly, from thigh-thinning leg raises to tummy-trimming crunches. You even deny yourself your favorite treats (donuts are high on your "don't" list). Despite your most rigorous routine, those frustrating fat deposits in areas such as your "love handles" and "muffin top" remain. The reason: you can change designer jeans – but you can't alter your genes. And heredity can predispose you to storing excess fat in precisely those areas. Meet an innovative new technique for body contouring: CoolSculpting™, now available in Portland, Oregon at the Key Laser Institute for Aesthetic Medicine®. Designed by Harvard, Coolsculpting™ is the only FDA-approved device to non-surgically remove fat – permanently.

Freeze Away Fat – Permanently
CoolSculpting does more than just temporarily eliminate a few fat cells. This technology reduces your fat safely, gradually, and permanently, providing you with toned, slimmer results in less than 2 months. This non-surgical procedure is FDA approved for non-invasive fat layer reduction of the flanks and love handles. It requires no incisions, anesthesia, pain medication, or downtime.
Your body's natural cleansing processes remove the damaged fat cells, resulting in safe, gradual fat reduction. You will enjoy the toned, slimmer results 3 weeks to 2 months following your treatment as the cleansing process gently eases the fat from your body.
Your CoolSculpting Procedure
During the CoolSculpting procedure, a technology called Cryolipolysis™ is used to gently and effectively reduce your fat cells. No incisions are involved: the cooling device is pressed against the area you want to treat, targeting those fat cells that you want to dissolve while avoiding damage to the surrounding skin. After the tissue has been cooled, the targeted fat cells begin to break down.
The amount of time needed depends on the areas that you and Dr. Key decide to target. Most of Dr. Key's patients experience no discomfort, and you can bring your laptop, a book, or MP3 player to keep you entertained during your procedure.
Concerned about downtime? Eliminate those worries just as easily, because no recovery period is required. In 3 days, as your fat cells begin to respond, some patients experience mild soreness. However, you can return to and enjoy your regular routine soon directly after the procedure, even if that means engaging in strenuous exercise. Any mild redness or minimal bruising should be gone within a few days.
As with liposuction, CoolSculpting is not a substitute for a healthy diet and sensible fitness plan. It provides a way to remove undesirable fat deposits in the love handles, tummy, and even inner thighs that even endless dieting can't target.
