With age, pregnancy, weight gain or loss and other factors, our bodies can accumulate cellulite, lumps and bumps in places we can’t seem to shed even with proper diet and exercise. You may be thinking you’d like to treat these issues in a way that does not involve surgical measures, but aren’t sure what options are available.
Fortunately, there is CoolSculpting®. This is a non-surgical and effective procedure for toning the body and ridding it of stubborn fat.
This body contouring procedure uses extremely cold temperatures to target and rid the body of fat cells. You don’t have to worry about damage to the surrounding cells, as only the targeted area is affected.
CoolSculpting® is a safe treatment that metabolizes the dead fat cells in a natural process over a period of a few weeks. The procedure is effective in the removal of excess fat in numerous areas of the body. Commonly treated regions include the abdomen, upper back, lower back, flanks and double chin, as well as the male breast area.
Candidates for CoolSculpting® are in generally good health and near their ideal weight. This treatment may not be effective for those who are quite a bit overweight, as it is not meant for weight loss.
It’s also important that you understand how the procedure works and are realistic in your expectations of the extent to which your body shape can be improved. The practitioner will discuss anticipated results in a consultation with you.
If you have bulging areas of fat that have not responded to healthy eating and exercise, you are likely suited for CoolSculpting®.
What to Expect
On the day of your procedure, the provider may place a CoolSculpting® paddle on each side of the targeted treatment area and begin the chilling process. They may remain in place for approximately an hour.
You’ll feel a cooling sensation, along with a slight tugging, at the beginning of the session. Soon, the area will numb. During the treatment, you’re free to relax in a way that is convenient for you.
You can return to your everyday activities immediately following your treatment. You may experience some common side effects such as swelling, redness or bruising. These should be mild, and will subside.
Your body will reabsorb the targeted fat tissue over a period two to four months. Thus, results will not be seen right away. A healthy diet, along with regular exercise, will ensure your results will last.
