Getting rid of excess fat can be difficult. Even with a rigorous diet and exercise regimen, some pockets of fat can be stubborn and unresponsive to a healthy lifestyle. Many people think of liposuction as an option to get rid of excess fat and tissue; however, it can be intimidating thinking about the surgery and recovery time. Thanks to the innovation of CoolSculpting®, you can get rid of excess fat non-surgically, with no downtime, and with minimal discomfort. CoolSculpting® is a fat-freezing procedure that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat.
- Minimal pain
- Safe and effective
- No downtime
- Permanent results
Men and women who have excess that is fat resistant to diet and exercise may be good candidates for CoolSculpting®. It is best that CoolSculpting® patients are at or near their ideal weight, are in good health, and have realistic expectations.
The CoolSculpting® system consists of a gel pad and applicator that delivers controlled cooling to the targeted fat. The vacuum applicator gently draws the tissue into the applicator cup and safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to the fat cells under the skin. The fat cells will crystallize as they freeze and then die. The body will naturally process the fat over time, and the dead cells will be eliminated for good.
For most people, the area will go numb within five to ten minutes into the treatment. During the procedure, patients can relax and read a book or check their e-mail. They may feel some slight tugging on their skin and tingling as the CoolSculpting® device gently massages the area.
Recovery and Results
Immediately following the CoolSculpting® procedure, patients can return to normal activities. Most people feel fine after the procedure and go back to the work the same day.
Some patients may experience minimal side effects, such as:
These side effects are temporary and may persist for up to two weeks. Some patients will see results within three weeks of their treatment, and most will experience the most dramatic results after two months. Typically, it will take about four to six months for the fat to completely flush out of the body, and patients will notice a reduction of fat as well as a better-sculpted body.
CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive procedure that can provide patients with a significant reduction of fat and smoother, more toned body contours. With minimal side effects and pain, CoolSculpting® is an excellent option for those who are apprehensive about surgery and want to avoid invasive procedures such as liposuction.
