Achieving the body you want takes a lot of work. You must consistently eat a healthy diet and exercise on a regular basis. However, sometimes, this is not enough. Even if you are at your ideal weight, achieving the sculpted look you want can be out of reach. You may have a bulging abdomen or stubborn fat pockets that just won’t budge. If this applies to you, CoolSculpting can help.
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical procedure that involves destroying fat cells using freezing temperatures. It is a highly versatile treatment that can be applied anywhere on the body. If you have love handles, a muffin top, double chin, or heavy hips, CoolSculpting can help get rid of them.
How It’s Performed
To perform the treatment, a doctor will use a gel pad and applicator to freeze the fat in specific areas of your body. CoolSculpting can be performed on multiple parts of your body at the same time. You simply need to apply the gel pad and applicator wherever you want treatment.
The device uses a vacuum to grab onto the bulge of your skin that needs treatment. Then, controlled cooling is applied to the area. This can be uncomfortable for the first few minutes, but very soon, the area will go numb, and you can relax for the remainder of the 1-hour treatment.
How Does It Work?
So, how does it work? CoolSculpting freezes fat cells. In order to survive, fat cells need a warm temperature. When this isn’t available, and the cells are exposed to freezing cold temperatures, they die. The cooling technology in CoolSculpting targets fat cells without damaging other types of cells in the area. This results in a targeted treatment that is effective in getting rid of fat cells in areas you want. Once the fat cells freeze, they die. The dead fat cells are excreted out of the body through the liver in the weeks following the treatment. You will not notice any other side effects in your body. Even though fat cells are dying, the rest of your cells are safe.
The best thing about CoolSculpting is that you get results within a few weeks after treatment and will notice improvements continually for about 6 months. This means, the dead cells will continually be excreted for months following the treatment. You will notice improvements day by day.
Recovery from CoolSculpting treatment is very short and easy. You will notice redness, soreness, and minor bruising immediately following your treatment. This is completely normal and will subside within the first few hours following CoolSculpting treatment. Immediately following your CoolSculpting treatment, you can resume your activities as normal. You do not have to adjust your routine at all, since this is a non-invasive and virtually painless treatment.
