If you are considering non-surgical fat reduction, you’ve probably heard about CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting is a safe and effective body contouring procedure that can help you achieve your body sculpting goals.
What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a fat reduction procedure that uses cold temperature to freeze away unwanted fat. It is a non-invasive technique that requires no anesthesia, incisions, or needles.
CoolSculpting addresses stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. It is a fat loss treatment and is not intended for weight loss. Therefore, ideal candidates for the procedure should be at or near their ideal weight.
The technique is FDA approved for treating fat bulges in the abdomen, flanks, inner and outer thighs, upper arms, submental area (under the chin). It can also be used to reduce back fat, bra fat, and fat under the buttocks (banana roll).
How CoolSculpting Works
The CoolSculpting system works based on proven science known as cryolipolysis or fat-freezing. The applicator is placed on the treatment area and delivers cold temperature that freezes and kills the fat cells, without harming the surrounding skin, nerves, and tissue. The frozen fat cells are naturally processed and removed from the treatment site in the following weeks, resulting in a slimmer, smoother physique.
Patients may start to see improvements as early as three weeks after treatment, but the final effects can take up to 3 months.
CoolSculpting reduces fat in the targeted area by 20-25% in a single treatment.
How Long Do The Results Last?
The results of CoolSculpting are long-lasting because the fat cells that are removed from the body are gone for good. However, patients are encouraged to engage in a healthy, active lifestyle after treatment to maintain the results.
If you are struggling to get rid of stubborn areas of fat, CoolSculpting is a convenient way to contour your body without surgery or downtime.
