Most people are aware that there are effective fat reduction treatments available that do not require you to go through surgery. They are perfect for helping people to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat that have been resistant to diet and exercise. We would like to tell you why CoolSculpting® is a great option.
How the Treatment Works
CoolSculpting® does not require incisions to be made in the body. The treatment is done by placing an applicator directly on top of an area where unwanted fat exists. The fat is slowly sucked up into the applicator where it is massaged and brought down to a cold temperature. The reason why this treatment is so good at fat reduction is because the fat is negatively affected at a warmer temperature than the rest of the body, including the skin.
When fat cells are frozen, they die. The body naturally removes these dead fat cells. During the CoolSculpting® treatment, no fat cells are physically removed from the body. The goal is to damage the fat cells through intense cold and then allow the body to do the rest. This is why the treatment can be done in a completely non-surgical way.
What to Expect
In most cases, an individual will sit with the CoolSculpting® applicator on an area where they have unwanted fat for a certain amount of time. Multiple areas can be treated at one time. The treatment session can be done as soon as the initial consultation is over.
You are not going to walk away slimmer after the treatment is performed. It takes time for your body to naturally get rid of the fat cells that have been frozen. Most individuals start to see results from their CoolSculpting® treatment about six to eight weeks after the time it is done. Some people need to have multiple treatments on one area in order to get the best results.
You are going to be more resistant to weight gain after your treatments. However, this does not mean that you cannot gain weight in the area where the treatment was performed. This means that you need to live a healthy lifestyle in order to maintain the results.
