How Does CoolSculpting Work?
If you’re looking for an effective fat reduction procedure, CoolSculpting is the answer! It is a non-invasive and non-surgical medical procedure that removes unwanted fat cells from the body.
The process involves cooling fat to a freezing temperature because frozen fat cells that are dead will be eliminated from the patient’s body through the body’s lymphatic system within a few weeks of the treatment. It can take up to 8 -12 weeks to see the full results. Patients may require another round of treatment to get the best result. CoolSculpting can be used to treat different parts of the body including inner and outer thighs, flank, bra fat, belly, upper arms and male breast. This procedure can also be used to reduce excess fat underneath the chin.
During the procedure an applicator that contains a vacuum is applied to the treatment area, this will feel like a a gentle pull or tug. Gentle cooling will then be applied, for about 35 minutes to an hour depending on the area that is being treated. This procedure is very comfortable. At the end of the treatment a 2 minute massage of the treatment area is given for optimal result.
There are a number of benefits associated with coolsculpting. It is a non invasive , non surgical treatment with minimal downtime and the results are long lasting .The fat cells that are treated are destroyed for good. However, if you do gain significant amount of weight after your treatment, you can gain fat again in the treated areas. For these reasons, coolsculpting is often preferred to liposuction.
As with any other procedure, there is the possibility of side effects and risks, so it is important that you speak to your doctor before the treatment so that together you can determine whether or not this is a suitable procedure for you. CoolSculpting is not for everyone and is not a solution for obesity, nor is it a substitute for exercise or a healthy diet. This procedure is meant to help remove small amounts of stubborn fat that you cannot eliminate through diet and exercise.
