As we get closer to summer, the pressure to achieve an ideal “beach body” can be overwhelming. For some, despite following a consistent exercise routine and healthy diet, certain pockets of fat can seem to stay stuck. These stubborn areas can leave even the most determined dieters feeling distraught and discouraged. Luckily, there’s CoolSculpting.
Hard-to-target areas don’t stand a chance against this innovative procedure. While you may have heard of this chilly fix before, here’s what you need to know about it
CoolSculpting freezes and kills fat cells
In basic terms? Trust the science. CoolSculpting works by freezing your fat cells. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes and expels these dead fat cells. Since fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than the surrounding tissue, the CoolSculpting device can safely target fat cells underneath the skin. The Cfat-freezing procedure actually reduces the number of fat cells in treated areas by about 20% to 25%
Targets multiple areas
CoolSculpting is one of the only non-surgical ways to target specific problem areas. The device works on a number of different areas:
- Upper or lower abdomen
- Anterior or posterior flanks
- Bra back (back fat)
- Inner or outer thighs
No matter which area is causing frustration, CoolSculpting can likely address your needs. The result will be the sculpted shape you want.
CoolSculpting is safe and easy
The procedure itself is quick and simple. During your treatment, a gel pad and applicator will be applied to the targeted area. The CoolSculpting applicator delivers controlled cooling to the targeted fat. While the applicator may feel a bit chilly, there is no other discomfort associated with the procedure. Feel free to read, check emails, catch up with friends on social media or even take a quick nap while the applicator works its magic! The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, which makes returning to normal activities an easy process. Often times, patients even return to work after their treatment is over
CoolSculpting results take time
While most CoolSculpting treatments take only 30 minutes, you’ll have to be more patient for your results. Some patients may see results as early as three weeks after their first treatment, but the most dramatic results are usually seen between one and three months following treatment. The results will be worth the wait
