As we continue into summer, it is now a question of whether your beach body will fit in your swimsuit. Whether you stayed in shape or lost weight, you still might have stubborn fatty spots that refuse to disappear. These lumpy, fatty deposits can be extremely difficult to remove even with exercise and diet.
Until recently, the only way to achieve taut, smooth skin was by surgery, which requires downtime and can be costly. Today, treatments like CoolSculpting offer a non-invasive way to remove fat deposits from the body. Learn more about CoolSculpting, how it works and if this treatment is right for you.
CoolSculpting: What Is It?
CoolSculpting has quickly become a more popular and less expensive alternative to liposuction. The procedure is an FDA-approved revolutionary fat removal process that can turn your body into the one you have always wanted.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
In the course of your treatment, your provider will apply a gel pad and applicator to the problem area/s. The application generates a vacuum that draws fatty tissue into the device and cools it. The fat cells are frozen near the targeted area while the surrounding healthy tissues remain unscathed.
The body then naturally metabolizes the dead cells over several weeks. In addition to permanently eliminating excess fat from your body, you can expect long-term results. The procedure does not require any surgery. Treatment time is dependent on the area/s being treated.
Is CoolSculpting Safe?
Studies show that CoolSculpting is safe and effective. The risks are few and rare. The procedures do not harm your liver. As for side effects, they are mild and disappear after a short time. Depending on the targeted area, it reduces fat by 10% to 25%.
What are the Benefits of CoolSculpting?
No matter which kind of bikini or bathing suit you wear, CoolSculpting can make you look your best! The CoolSculpting procedure can reduce fat in problem areas such as the midsection, love handles, bra bulge, muffin top, back fat, upper thigh or arm fat. It offers many benefits over liposuction and other methods of fat reduction. Keep in mind that the number of treatments you’ll need depends on the number of fat areas being addressed.
Who is the Ideal Candidate for CoolScupting?
CoolSculpting is not for everyone. The best candidates for CoolSculpting are those within ten to fifteen pounds of their ideal weight and who have moderate fat levels. People with cryoglobulinemia or other medical conditions that require medication should not use CoolSculpting.
Since CoolSculpting is non-invasive and non-surgical, it is ideal for those who cannot take leave from work to recover from major surgery. The procedure does not require anesthesia or pain medication, so you can resume your regular routine right away. You should consult your doctor about this procedure if you have any underlying medical conditions.
Does CoolSculpting Have a Permanent Effect?
Yes. CoolSculpting destroys fat cells by safely targeting them with precisely controlled cooling. Fat cells that are frozen will gradually die and disappear permanently due to a natural metabolic process, providing you with that beach body you have always wanted.
