Do you lose pounds, but still carry too many inches around your waist and thighs? CoolSculpting can help. It is the cutting edge method for removing stubborn pockets of fat. In effect, it freezes the fat away.
Here is a look at how CoolSculpting works and what it can do for you, your body and your confidence.
What Is CoolSculpting?
Many women exercise daily, watch what they eat and still have stubborn fat that clings to parts of their body. If that describes you, CoolSculpting could be your answer. It is more affordable and less invasive than earlier fat removal methods, and delivers permanent results.
During a CoolSculpting procedure, air that is cooled to about 14 degrees is used to freeze fat cells. The frozen cells gradually die off over a six-week period and get reabsorbed into your body and dispelled via the lymphatic system. Over a period of a month or so, you will notice how much better your clothes fit.
Each session takes an hour. One area of the body can be treated at each appointment. Some people need just one treatment, while others need a series of them to get the effects they are after.
What Does It Feel Like?
With CoolSculpting, pain is not an issue. Patients say it feels like pinching. After the cooling effect starts, your skin doesn’t feel anything at all.
CoolSculpting can’t damage your skin because a patch is placed on the area before the applicator is used, acting as a protective barrier.
Not a Weight Loss Procedure
CoolScuplting is not a weight loss method. In fact, it works best on people who eat right and exercise regularly. The procedure can remove stubborn pockets of fat that simply don’t respond to diet and exercise.
Possible Side Effects
Like any surgical procedure, non-invasive or invasive, CoolSculpting can result in certain side effects. The most common are minor swelling, soreness and bruising around the area treated. Some people experience numbness, which is temporary.
The Many Benefits of CoolSculpting
Recovery time is minimal with this procedure. It is non-invasive so it requires very little downtime. That’s a big plus for people with a busy lifestyle.
It is more affordable than invasive surgical techniques because it takes less treatment time. The patient doesn’t have to worry about hospital expenses and being off work for an extended period.
When crunches and sit-ups aren’t working, CoolSculpting can remove pockets of fat that just won’t go away. Your clothes will fit better and your confidence will soar.
