Fatty tissue on the inner and outer thighs is notoriously difficult to get rid of. Even with an intensive workout program, it might take years of hard work to sculpt slim and toned legs. CoolSculpting® is a revolutionary cosmetic treatment that allows patients to quickly and safely melt body fat with absolutely no incisions or scars. In addition to eradicating fatty tissue along your thighs, this popular procedure can also be used to trim your abdomen, flanks, back and buttocks.
The History of CoolSculpting®
Many years ago, researchers at Harvard discovered that children who regularly ate popsicles would actually form dimples on their cheeks. This takes place because our fat cells respond to temperature changes in a much different manner than all other forms of soft tissue. When fatty tissue reaches a certain temperature, the walls begin to weaken and fall apart. Once the patient’s immune system recognizes that the cells are damaged, it expels them naturally. CoolSculpting® takes advantage of this phenomenon by cooling fatty tissue down for a short period of time.
The Benefits of CoolSculpting®
When compared to invasive procedures such as liposuction, the CoolSculpting® system has a number of enticing benefits. Patients do not need to worry about incisions, anesthesia or a lengthy recovery period after their treatment. As soon as your treatment is over, you can head right back to work or your other daily errands. A number of long-term studies have also revealed that CoolSculpting® can destroy up to 25 percent of the fat cells at the treatment site per appointment.
The Ideal Candidate
CoolSculpting® is not an alternative to a healthy diet and exercise. Instead, patients should view it as a non-invasive treatment that will help them deal with localized body fat. Our patients generally enjoy the best results when they make healthy lifestyle changes well before their first appointment. In between each of your treatments, you should plan on exercising as much as possible, staying hydrated and eating a clean diet. These few habits will help you expel the fat as quickly as possible and keep it off.
Following Your CoolSculpting® Appointment
Each treatment session takes around one hour to complete, and most patients need a series of appointments. Only a few inches can be treated at a time, so patients who have a larger treatment site might need to have multiple sessions carried out on the same day. It all depends on your unique situation.
Some patients start to see changes to their thighs after three or four weeks, but the full results will not become apparent until two or three months after your first treatment. If you would like to enjoy further improvements, you can schedule additional appointments.
