Sometimes, no matter how hard you work out or how dedicated you are to eating well, those annoying pockets of fat around your tummy, thighs or flanks just won’t seem to budge. Some fat is resistant to exercise. However, there is hope. CoolSculpting® is a cosmetic treatment that is growing in popularity. There are lots of reasons why this fat-freezing treatment is so in-demand.
When deciding to undergo an optional procedure of any kind, safety is usually at the forefront of patients’ minds. You can rest assured that CoolSculpting® is safe because it’s the only fat-freezing technology that’s been approved by the FDA. In addition, this treatment is based on science. Researchers from Massachusetts General Hospital discovered that fat freezes at a lower temperature than the cells and tissues surrounding it. This means the targeted fat cells can be destroyed without harm to any of the materials around it. Better yet, there are no chemicals or incisions involved. The dead fat cells are flushed from your body through a natural process.
There’s No Need for Surgery
Many other forms of fat reduction, like liposuction, are surgical or invasive in nature. CoolSculpting® requires no incisions or insertions of any kind. Many patients rest, read a book or play games on their phone during the procedure. Sessions are performed in the comfort of our office without the need for any downtime.
Results Look and Feel Natural
Since the destroyed fat cells are removed from your body through a natural elimination process, your fat reduction will occur gradually over time, usually over the span of months. That means your results will look natural. You won’t have to worry about scarring or results that look “overdone.” Your sleek, new body contour will give you a boost of confidence without having to explain to nosy acquaintances what you had done. Your results will improve gradually as time passes after your procedure. As patients begin to see noticeable fat reduction, they are often motivated to continue on a path of healthy eating and exercise in order to maintain their improved shape.
A major advantage to CoolSculpting® is that fat cells are permanently removed from your body. That means, unlike dieting, they won’t return to the area, so long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle. If you do happen to gain weight, it would most likely be evenly distributed throughout the body instead of reappearing as a pocket of noticeable fat.
