Even with all of your dedication to diet, exercise and a healthy lifestyle, you may have noticed a few stubborn areas that have not responded to your efforts. You may have heard about Coolsculpting® as a way to eliminate excess fat. You may be wondering who can benefit from the Coolsculpting® treatment.
The Only FDA Approved Fat Removal System
Coolsculpting® is the only fat removal system, which uses cooling technology, that is approved by the Food and Drug Administration. This non-invasive treatment option is safe and effective. Coolsculpting® will remove stubborn fat cells from your problem areas without surgery.
What is Coolsculpting®?
The technical name for Coolsculpting® is cryolipolysis. The Coolsculpting® treatment uses a device that freezes fat without damaging your skin, nerves or blood vessels.
Fat freezes at a higher temperature than your skin. The sculpting machine freezes the fat cells beneath the skin surface. The machine will shut down if it senses that your skin is getting too cold. You cannot get frostbite from Coolsculpting®.
The Coolsculpting® Treatment
You have a set number of fat cells in your body. Your fat cells get bigger or smaller if you lose or gain weight. Coolsculpting® will eliminate up to 25 percent of the fat cells in your treatment areas.
The Coolsculpting® machine is applied to your target area over a protective gel pad. The Coolsculpting® vacuum is turned on, and skin and fat in the target area are drawn into the vacuum. You may feel a brief tugging sensation, but that will soon subside.
Who Can Benefit From Coolsculpting®?
Since Coolsculpting® is non-invasive, it is often a preferred treatment for those wanting to shed unwanted fat. With Coolsculpting®, there is no need for anesthesia, no downtime, no bandages and no need to wear tight compression garments after the treatment. Coolsculpting® is for nearly any adult who wants to trim problem areas and:
• Reduce your double chin
• Flatten your abdomen
• Reduce love handles
• Sculpt your thighs
• Trim your upper arms
• Trim back fat
• Sculpt away bra fat
Coolsculpting® is safe and effective, but it is not a weight loss tool. For the best results, you may need more than one session. You will not see the effects of your session immediately. It takes time for your body to eliminate the dead fat cells. Within a month or two, you will be rewarded with the results of your efforts.
