If you have stubborn fat that just won’t go away no matter how much you diet or exercise, it’s time to look into other treatments that can help you get rid of it. Getting rid of unwanted fat will boost your confidence, help you look and feel better, and make you healthier. If you have unwanted fat that you want to get rid of, consider CoolSculpting.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting (also known as cryolipolysis) is a noninvasive procedure that involves killing fat cells. It is an FDA-approved treatment for fat removal through cryotherapy. The freezing process kills the fat cells which are then excreted from the body over several weeks following the procedure. CoolSculpting is a popular treatment method to get rid of unwanted fat because it is a noninvasive procedure that can be applied to a variety of body parts. It is most commonly used on the thighs, lower back, and belly but can also be used on the arms, lower legs, chin, and more.
What Happens in a CoolSculpting Session?
During a CoolSculpting session, a doctor will place your desired treatment area in panels that will emit freezing temperatures to the area. The session will last between half an hour to an hour, depending on the area being treated. During the session, you may feel freezing, aching, or stinging sensations in the area being treated. After the session is over, your skin may be red, swollen and a bit painful. These symptoms will subside on their own after the procedure. CoolSculpting may require multiple sessions, depending on the area you are treating and the results you desire.
You will see the results 2 to 3 months after the treatment. By this time, the dead fat cells will have exited your body, and you will notice a significant difference in the area. The results you get from CoolSculpting will last indefinitely. The fat cells killed using CoolSculpting will exit your body in the weeks following the procedure and new fat cells will not replace the old ones unless you gain more weight later on. The results from the CoolSculpting session are permanent.
The perfect candidate for treatment with CoolSculpting is someone who has a stable weight with a few stubborn pockets of fat that seem impossible to shake off regardless of diet and exercise. This is not an ideal treatment for someone with significant weight to lose. CoolSculpting targets specific areas of fat that are not going away through regular exercise and dieting. Other forms of fat reduction are better for a person who has significant weight to lose.
