If you have a healthy exercise and diet plan in place, but continue to struggle with areas of stubborn deposits of fat, perhaps you should consider one of the most popular new trends in cosmetic procedures, CoolSculpting – a safe, FDA approved, non-surgical, quick and simple way to eliminate stubborn fat.
CoolSculpting uses a unique, non-surgical technology which cools and freezes unwanted fat cells. No hospital stay, anesthesia or incisions are required; there is no risk of infection and absolutely no downtime following the procedure. Read on to learn more.
During your CoolSculpting procedure, a gel pad protects your skin while the targeted area is placed between metal plates. Your fat cells shrink and are frozen, making it possible for your body to eliminate them on your own. Patients describe the sensation as cold with a bit of pressure. Within a few minutes, the cold sensation goes away. You can read, sleep, meditate, or listen to music during your CoolSculpting procedure.
CoolSculpting is used to target stubborn fat on the back, belly and thighs. It can also improve the appearance of the knees, neck and the area between the breasts and the underarm.
You can return to your regular activities immediately following the procedure because it is not invasive. There may be some redness or discomfort in the targeted area, but they subside quickly. Results are gradual because CoolSculpting helps your body eliminate your fat on its own, naturally. You should see results in approximately three weeks; your body will continue to eliminate your fat cells for four to six months. The good news is, if you maintain a healthy weight through diet and exercise, your CoolSculpting results can be permanent.
If you want instant results or need to lose a substantial amount of weight, CoolSculpting would not be a good option for you. CoolSculpting works best for healthy patients who are close to their ideal weight, but who want to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat.
