In recent years, there has been an influx to the market of non-invasive, non-surgical treatments and procedures that are used to reduce body fat.
This assortment of treatments is being referred to as “body contouring” for its ability to help shape the body through fat loss or muscle strengthening, depending on the procedure. One of these popular treatments is CoolSculpting – a form of cryolipolysis, which basically means freezing fat cells.
There are many benefits of CoolSculpting for patients looking to lose body fat in targeted areas where stubborn subcutaneous fat settles.
Not only is CoolSculpting non-invasive, it is a safe and effective method of body contouring that can be done quickly and easily at a certified practitioner’s office with little to no downtime.
Patients will experience natural-looking results from the treatment, which has been shown to motivate people to live a healthier life overall.
It also gives patients a boost to their confidence, making them more comfortable in their skin and not feeling self conscious about their body.
The results of CoolSculpting are long-lasting as the fat cells that are frozen are permanently killed off and eliminated from the body.
CoolSculpting is a quick and easy procedure that is performed in the office of a certified practitioner.
The CoolSculpting applicator is placed against the patient’s skin in the area being treated.
From there, the patient will experience a slight pull on the skin as the applicator adheres to their body and from there the treatment itself will begin.
During the treatment, patients may experience feeling of the skin being pulled or tugged, mild pinches, intense cold, stinging, aching, tingling and cramping where the applicator is working over the treatment area.
As the procedure continues, the skin will gradually become numb from the cold and these feelings will subside.
The CoolSculpting applicator freezes the fat cells inside of the treatment area, causing them to die off over time, when they will be broken down and absorbed back into the body to be eliminated through the body’s natural elimination process.
Patients can expect to see results in one to three months, with the final results being realized in about 6 months or more.
CoolSculpting is one of many body contouring treatments currently available on the market.
Body contouring treatments are intended for the purpose of helping patients to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat that collect in certain areas of the body.
These pockets are nearly impossible to get rid of, no matter how clean and healthy your diet is, or how much exercise you do.
CoolSculpting, and other body contouring treatments, are not treatments intended to help patients lose weight as they are simply working with the patient’s body and helping to enhance what is already there.
For people who are already fairly healthy and active, and are looking to just get rid of those couple extra inches of fat around the stomach, butt, thighs or upper arms, among other targeted areas, CoolSculpting can help lean out the area through the elimination of extra, stubborn fat cells.
The decision on when and where to have CoolSculpting treatments done is unique to each individual person.
CoolSculpting can rid the body of the extra pockets of stubborn fat that just won’t go away through conventional diet and exercise methods.
This is when patients may make the decision to have a CoolSculpting treatment done. It will not only eliminate the fat cells, but also make the patient feel more confident and comfortable in their skin.
