The Basics of CoolSculpting®
- Posted on: Jul 19 2023
Many people want to obtain a more sculpted look, removing stubborn fat pockets that look bad underneath their favorite clothes. However, not everyone wants to commit to surgery to obtain those results, so they begin to look for alternative ways to remove that unwanted fat. CoolSculpting® is one of those ways.
But how does CoolSculpting® work, and what results should you expect? Let’s find out the answers to these questions and more by exploring the world of CoolSculpting®.
What Is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive treatment that can remove fat from nine different areas of your body. This includes under the chin and jawline areas, thighs, abdomen, flanks, bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks, and the upper arms.
CoolSculpting® uses a technology called cryolipolysis, which means that it freezes fat. A handheld device will be used on your skin to freeze the fat, destroying cells without breaking your skin, and in time, your immune system will eliminate the dead fat cells, creating a more sculpted physique.
The Perfect Candidate for CoolSculpting®
CoolSculpting® is not a replacement for conventional weight loss. However, it can be a good option if you are close to your ideal weight, but you cannot get rid of the excess fat pockets. You are a candidate if you are not overweight but have pinchable fat that you want to eliminate.
CoolSculpting® is also great for those who don’t want to spend too much time in the office. Since it uses two handpieces, it can do the job in half the time, allowing you to target two areas at the same time.
Benefits of CoolSculpting®
At Azul® Cosmetic Surgery & Medical Spa, you can enjoy the following benefits of CoolSculpting®:
1. Fewer Complications
CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive treatment that brings fewer risks when compared to invasive surgery. In general, CoolSculpting® is not uncomfortable; however, everyone responds to treatment differently. At most, you will notice some redness or numbness after the procedure, but it should go away shortly.
2. Long-Term Results
CoolSculpting® offers long-term results. The fat cells destroyed during the freezing process are gone for good, and once eliminated, they cannot be restored. However, keep in mind that this applies to those specific fat cells. To prevent new fat cells from forming, you must ensure you follow a healthy lifestyle.
3. Short Treatment Sessions
CoolSculpting® treatment sessions can vary between 35 and 75 minutes, depending on the area you want to be treated. Most patients bring a book, an iPad, or something else to help pass the time during their visit.
What to Expect From CoolSculpting® Results?
CoolSculpting® will kill the stubborn fat cells immediately, but they will not be removed right away. The frozen cells will stay in your body until they are naturally eliminated. As a result, you will begin to see the first results in the next few weeks after the procedure. Final results will not become apparent until a few months after your CoolSculpting® treatment session.
One thing to note is that the fat will be gone for good. That being said, while those particular fat cells cannot return, this doesn’t mean fat will not gather back the natural way. An incorrect diet or a sedentary life can cause new fat cells to form, which is why following a healthy diet and exercise routine is crucial if you wish to maintain your new contour.
