When you have stubborn pockets of fat on your body that don’t seem to be influenced by dieting or exercise, CoolSculpting® may be right for you. This cosmetic fat-freezing procedure can reduce those unwanted fat deposits. CoolSculpting® can provide numerous benefits for eligible patients.
Unlike dieting and exercise, which create generalized fat reduction throughout the body, CoolSculpting® is a spot treatment. This means that it is used to target fat deposits in specific areas of the body.
Some of the most commonly treated problem areas are the chin, arms, abdomen, love handles, inner thighs, and knees. Each treatment is expected to remove around 25% of the fat cells in that area of the body.
CoolSculpting® provides a non-invasive alternative for those looking to get rid of excess fat. Unlike other cosmetic procedures, like liposuction, CoolSculpting® involves no scalpels or needles. There’s no surgical cutting or any of the associated risks to deal with.
Because of this, you can freeze away those unwanted fat cells without the need for any recovery time or downtime. You can return back to your normal activities right after your procedure is completed.
It seems like everyone has a jam-packed schedule these days. Fortunately, CoolSculpting® can be performed within one short hour. It can be very easy to stop in on your lunch break and receive treatment for one of your problem areas. The best part is that you can spend that time reading, working, listening to music, or even playing games on your phone while the fat-freezing technology targets your problem area.
One of the biggest concerns that patients have about fat-reduction procedures is how their body is going to look after the treatment. With CoolSculpting®, you can avoid lumpy or uneven results. Because this procedure works to remove fat cells through the body’s natural processes, it creates a smooth and natural look in the treated areas.
Exercise can shrink fat cells, but it does not destroy them. This means that it’s possible for them to swell in size again. CoolSculpting®, on the other hand, destroys fat cells to provide permanent results. Since the adult body can no longer produce fat cells, you don’t have to worry about more growing back.
It’s important to note that the remaining fat cells in the area can potentially increase in size due to lifestyle habits. Patients will need to maintain a healthy eating plan and a proper exercise regimen to ensure high-quality results.
It’s not uncommon to feel self-conscious about trouble areas around the body. It can be quite discouraging when you diet and exercise regularly without any noticeable results. CoolSculpting® provides a quick and effective way to get rid of those stubborn fat deposits—within four to 12 short weeks, treated fat disappears.
