If you know anything about body contouring, you’ve probably heard about CoolSculpting. That’s because it’s a highly effective and innovative alternative to invasive, surgical procedures. With many different practices offering this new treatment and so many patients flocking to undergo it, it’s normal to wonder what all the hype is about. If you’ve wondered why CoolSculpting is so popular with patients looking for the best solution to their stubborn pockets of fat, here are some reasons.
Unlike Liposuction or body lift procedures, CoolSculpting doesn’t require any incisions or surgical steps. This means it’s desirable for those who want the finishing touches on their weight loss journey. There’s no hassle with downtime or recovery, no scars, and little risk. You can get right back to your busy, active schedule without having to worry about sutures or taking it easy.
CoolSculpting is also well-known for producing results through its state-of-the-art technique. It uses a freezing technique to crystalize fat cells which renders them nonfunctional, and they are absorbed by the body as waste. Once they’re removed by this process, they’re unable to expand with weight gain or remain in place, meaning the results are long-term.
Although surgical procedures can be safe and effective when performed by a skilled, board-certified plastic surgeon, surgery always carries a degree of risk. Because CoolSculpting is non-invasive, it carries little risk of infection or complication, and the cryotherapeutic handpiece contains materials to ensure no skin damage results from the freezing sensation. You can resume normal activities as soon as you leave the office, including going to the gym.
Results After One Session
Although it can take a few months to see drastic results because of the rate at which the body disposes of the crystalized cells, most patients need only one appointment before they begin to see progress towards their aesthetic goals. More than one session can augment these results, and CoolSculpting can be highly effective after 2-3 treatments for stubborn fat that can be impossible to get rid of through diet and exercise.
CoolSculpting can be a used effectively on commonly-fatty areas like the abdomen, hips, thighs, back, and upper arm.
