When you first heard of CoolSculpting®, the idea of being able to freeze away unwanted fat may have sounded like something that was too good to be true. The truth is that this fat freezing method has been able to help thousands of individuals to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat and really enjoy the shape of their body.
How Does the Treatment Work?
Many are surprised when they hear about how CoolSculpting® came to be. The idea came from doctors who worked in a children’s hospital. They noticed that children who ate frozen treats every day on the same side of their mouth started to develop dimples. What they discovered was that exposure to intense cold can actually kill fat cells. But the amazing thing is that at the right temperature, fat cells are killed but other body tissues are left unharmed.
When a person has a fat freezing treatment performed, the area where they have unwanted fat is suctioned into a special applicator. A person will feel an intense cold sensation during the first couple of minutes of the treatment. As the fat is massaged and brought to a lower temperature, the area becomes numb. This means that a person can easily relax while the treatment is performed. Many of our clients read a book, take a nap, or watch a movie on their electronic device.
It is good for a person to have realistic expectations when they use this fat freezing method. A person will not lose any weight in the moment the treatment is performed. And they are not likely to see results until at least a couple of weeks later. It takes time for the fat cells that had been damaged to be removed naturally from the body.
