Stubborn fat likes to hang out in certain areas of the body, such as the belly, back, and arms. Sometimes, exercise or dieting seems to have little impact on these places. That is where seeking out CoolSculpting® can be beneficial. What makes this treatment so great is it goes after the actual fat cells, eliminating them so that you get long-lasting and impressive results. Due to the way the treatment works, your results are gradual, and you can expect that no one will be able to tell how you did it.
What Is CoolSculpting®?
So how does this amazing treatment work? CoolSculpting® is the process of freezing fat cells. Afterward, they will crystallize and die, and your body will naturally flush them out. The number of fat cells in your body stopped changing sometime in your teenage years, so you do not have to worry about them coming back. It will take your body a few months to fully flush out the cells and the fat they were storing, which is why you get gradual, natural-looking results.
There are several areas that the FDA has approved this treatment on. They are:
- Upper Arms
- “Bra Fat”
- Underneath the Buttocks
- Double Chin
- Submental Area (Top of the Neck)
The first step in the process is to have a personalized treatment plan made. This will determine exactly which fat cells should be targeted to get the results you are after. This initial plan will also let you know how many treatment sessions you will need. The number of sessions depends on the size of the area being treated and whether you are targeting more than one.
CoolSculpting® is often described as very relaxing. You can watch a movie or use your phone as a cooling gel pad is placed on the predetermined areas you are targeting. This will cool the fat cells down to the point where they crystallize. After your treatment is over, you are free to resume your normal daily activities.
What Makes Someone a Candidate for CoolSculpting®?
If you have tried diet and exercise and its just not enough to achieve your body shaping goals, CoolSculpting® may be perfect for you. This is a great option for anyone who needs mild improvement and would like to avoid surgery. While it is not intended to treat obesity, it can help provide dramatic results when you continue to eat right and workout.
