If you’ve stuck to a sensible diet and a regular exercise routine but still can’t seem to lose stubborn pounds in certain areas, you’re not alone. Sometimes diet and exercise simply aren’t enough to reach your goals. Fortunately, there are options that go beyond the traditional methods. One of these is CoolSculpting®. This is a cosmetic procedure that eliminates fat cells without the need for surgery. It’s safe, convenient and requires no downtime. CoolSculpting® is approved by the FDA. It works through the use of a specialized cooling technology that is able to destroy fat cells and purge them from your body naturally.
CoolSculpting® uses the scientific principle that fat freezes at higher temperatures than other types of tissue. Therefore, the technology in this innovative treatment is used to precisely target just the fat cells in order to effectively freeze and destroy them without harming the surrounding tissue. This patented process of crystallizing and killing the fat cells is called Cryolipolysis®.
The death of these targeted fat cells doesn’t happen right away. It occurs gradually over time. They are then metabolized and naturally eliminated from your body. An added bonus is that these fat cells will not return once they are eliminated, as long as you stick to a healthy lifestyle. A CoolSculpting® session decreases the total amount of fat in the targeted area by approximately 20 percent. This is quite significant and can be repeated over several sessions.
Benefits of CoolSculpting®
First and foremost, CoolSculpting® is the only cosmetic treatment approved by the FDA that uses any kind of fat freezing technology. This approval should give you peace of mind that the method is safe and effective. Other advantages are that it is convenient and comfortable. Your CoolSculpting® session should only take about an hour, and you can lay down, relax, read, do work or even sleep during this time. The sensation you’re likely to feel is an initial blast of cold air on the skin and then a dull sort of pressure. The results offered by CoolSculpting® are completely natural-looking and actually improve over time as more and more fat cells begin to die off and exit your body.
What to Expect
Some patients see results as soon as four weeks after their first session. The most significant results are experienced around the two-month mark, and you could see continued fat loss for up to a total of six months after receiving treatment.
Depending on your goals, one treatment may be sufficient, but patients often opt for at least a few sessions to obtain the best results. Our team of professionals will help you determine your ideal plan.
