Stubborn fat is the worst because it hardly reacts to regular exercise. If you have a few unwanted pounds, and you’re not getting results from dieting and exercise, then consider CoolSculpting®. Most people have at least one major problem area that insists on holding on to excess fat.
Liposuction is very effective and delivers dramatic results, but it’s not the best choice for many people. Many of our patients want something less invasive. This makes CoolSculpting® a great alternative to surgery.
CoolSculpting® Freezes Away Unwanted Fat
Since it’s a non-invasive procedure, CoolSculpting® doesn’t require incisions. Instead, it targets your unwanted fat with carefully controlled freezing temperatures. By freezing the fat cells in your problem areas, the targeted fat cells die, and the natural metabolic processes within your body gradually remove the dead cells.
After a few scientists discovered the beneficial effects of extreme cold, technology was created to exploit the new discovery. CoolSculpting® is the result of this extensive research. It utilizes large devices that look like paddles to deliver the cooling technology.
To deliver the cold, a hose is attached to the panel. During the procedure, the panels are moved over the treatment area. With 3,000 sensors inside of each panel, the temperature of your skin is constantly monitored, and a special gel pad is used to protect your skin.
An applicator is used to pull your skin up, and you’ll begin to feel the extreme cold. However, as the treatment progresses, the target area will become numb, meaning you should feel little, if any, discomfort. In fact, most patients find the process so comfortable that they spend their treatment time reading, texting or simply relaxing.
What Happens to the Fat?
Most patients want to know what happens to the fat after the procedure is finished. This is a good question with a simple answer. The fat cells are automatically removed by your body.
CoolSculpting® works because it targets your stubborn fat cells with extreme cold, and the low temperatures cause the cells to crystalize. Over the span of two months, the fat cells targeted by the treatment begin to die.
Your body’s own immune system will send out enzymes to break apart and remove the crystallized cells. CoolSculpting® is unique because it prevents dead fat cells from coming back. Once the cells have been destroyed, you don’t have to worry about them coming back to haunt you. If you end up putting on additional weight in the future, your body won’t send the fat to the areas that have been treated with CoolSculpting®, which gives it a major advantage over other treatments.
What Are the Results Like?
You will get to enjoy the full results of your CoolSculpting® treatment over the course of a few months as your body flushes out the targeted fat cells. You should start noticing results a few weeks after the treatment, and over time, the results will continue to improve.
