A lot of people want to look better, but don’t want to undergo invasive surgical procedures. If this describes you, then you should consider CoolSculpting®. It’s a non-invasive procedure for fat reduction that has been cleared by the FDA. It was developed by well-known Harvard University scientists. CoolSculpting® eliminates fat cells and uses special cooling technology to get the job done.
There is no downtime, and it doesn’t involve invasive surgery. You can use CoolSculpting® to reduce the number of fat cells in a targeted area, and the treatment can give you lasting results.
How the Treatment Works
A lot of people work out extremely hard and maintain a strict diet, and despite the effort, they’re unable to eliminate fat in certain areas. As you can imagine, this can be very frustrating. Everyone has trouble areas, which is where the stubborn fat is stored.
CoolSculpting® can be used to target these stubborn pockets of fat. Diet and exercise are always recommended, but many of our patients don’t have enough time and would like to get faster results. CoolSculpting® is powerful technology, and it’s used to freeze away your fat.
The science behind the technology is what makes it very effective. The fat cells within your body will freeze at a higher temperature than the cells surrounding them. CoolSculpting® is used to target the fat cells that sit beneath your skin, and it uses a cooling effect to cause the fat cells to naturally die.
Unlike exercise, the treatment is able to precisely target stubborn fat cells. The process is known as Cryolipolysis, and it occurs when treated fat cells get crystalized and die.
Since fat cells freeze faster than the regular cells within your body, you don’t have to worry about damage to the surrounding tissue, nerves or skin. It takes time, but eventually, the fat cells will shrink and die. Your body will metabolize the dead cells naturally, which gets rid of them.
The end result is a body that looks trimmed and sculpted. Dieting and exercise can be effective, but they only reduce the size of the fat cells. CoolSculpting® actually kills the cells, so once you’ve undergone the treatment, the cells will be dead and gone forever. A standard treatment session can reduce the number of fat cells in a given area by about 20 percent.
Benefits of CoolSculpting®
If you’re considering this procedure, you should understand the benefits that it has to offer. One of the top benefits is results that look natural. After a single session, the target area will feel smoother and toned. However, the full results can take up to six months to become visible. Most of the dead fat cells will get metabolized by your body within the first two months, but you should be able to see noticeable results within four weeks.
Unlike some of the alternatives, CoolSculpting® is comfortable and convenient. Each treatment sessions requires only about 60 minutes of your time. You can even read or get some work done while receiving treatment.
