No matter how much you diet and exercise, there are simply some bulges of fat that just won’t go away. It used to be that surgery was your only choice when it came to dealing with these persistent fatty areas. Fortunately, with today’s innovations in cosmetic procedures, you have less invasive options. CoolSculpting® is a fat reduction procedure that is different from most others. It uses a patented deep cooling process to destroy the cells of a target area, resulting in a sleeker, more toned body contour. Read on for more information on what CoolSculpting® is and how it can help you achieve your goals.
CoolSculpting® not only reduces fat in a targeted area, but it permanently destroys targeted fat cells. Using carefully controlled cooling technology, these fat cells are destroyed and naturally flushed out by the body over time. The result is a slimmer body without your most stubborn pockets of fat.
How It Works
The method of applying precise cooling to an area in order to reduce fat cells and tighten skin is unique. Its concept is scientifically based on the fact that fat freezes at a lower temperature than other tissues in the body. Therefore, only the targeted fat is affected, while no harm comes to the cells surrounding it. The dead cells are gradually metabolized and eliminated from your body, resulting in a noticeable fat reduction with taut, firm skin.
What to Expect
Just as no two people are exactly alike, the exact CoolSculpting® procedure will differ from patient to patient depending on their needs. In general, however, the treatment consists of placing paddles on either side of the treatment area. The cooling process begins, along with a suctioning from the paddles. Your skin will soon begin to numb from the intense cold, leaving you with a comfortable and relaxing treatment. Most people find the process so comfortable that they spend their treatment time reading, scrolling through their phone or simply relaxing. There is absolutely no downtime with CoolSculpting®. You can return to your regular routine immediately.
Good candidates for CoolSculpting® include those who are at or near a healthy, stable weight but have consistently had trouble getting rid of stubborn pockets of fat. Common treatment areas include the stomach, thighs, upper arms and much more. You should be in relatively good health and be sure you understand the CoolSculpting® method, along with what kinds of results you can reasonably expect. Both men and women can benefit from the procedure, and individuals of any skin tone or texture are appropriate candidates. A consultation prior to treatment can determine your suitability for this treatment after a discussion of your medical history and aesthetic goals.
