The massive popularity of liposuction procedures has led to other innovations in the form of non-invasive treatments to help correct unwanted extra fat. The best of these treatments is known as CoolSculpting®.
What is CoolSculpting®?
The procedure came into being in an interesting way. A few years ago, two Harvard doctors, R. Rox Anderson and Dieter Manstein, noticed that children eating popsicles would form dimples where they never had them before. The doctors quickly realized that the extreme cold from the frozen treats helped to freeze and eliminate small fatty pockets while leaving surrounding tissue intact. This discovery led to the development of CoolSculpting®.
Just as with the children’s popsicles, the treatment has been found to be most effective for small, localized areas like a double chin that is notoriously unresponsive to changes in diet and exercise. The treatment utilizes paddles that are available in various sizes. These paddles create a suction effect on the skin. As the temperature grows lower, fat cells under these pads are frozen and destroyed while surrounding skin tissue remains unaffected.
CoolSculpting® is in high demand because it is an effective treatment that is totally non-invasive. The treatment setting is extremely relaxing, with many patients read a book or simply relax while being treated. In the weeks after the treatment, your own body will remove and dispose of the fat cells destroyed by the treatment. Once the fat cells are destroyed, they are gone forever.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
The treatment utilizes a special device to treat the fat found between the cooling paddles. This means that the procedure is appropriate for stubborn fat pockets including:
* Double chin
* Abdominal and back fat
* Baby bulges
* Hips and inner and outer thighs
When Will I Notice Results?
It will take multiple weeks for your results to become completely evident. It may take as little as a few weeks for some patients, while others take multiple months. After these months have passed, most patients observe a reduction in fat within the treatment area after just one session. Additional treatments may be required in some cases. It all depends on the unique situation.
