What is CoolSculpting?
There are many options available to you when you want to get rid of stubborn fat. If you have tried to lose weight through dieting and exercise but have been unsuccessful at shedding that extra fat around your middle using those measures alone, you might want to consider another option. CoolSculpting is a safe and effective treatment that focuses on eliminating love handles. It was cleared by the FDA and is a non-invasive type of cosmetic procedure that comes courtesy of a company called ZELTIQ. As a non-invasive procedure that has been proven effective, it is something you can rely on for finally losing that stubborn belly fat more commonly known as love handles or flank.
CoolSculpting vs Liposuction
Technologies in cosmetic procedures have changed over the years. While many of the traditional treatments for removing stubborn fat are invasive, such as liposuction and laser liposuction, CoolSculpting is different. The liposuction procedures are invasive and require actual surgeries before which patients must receive anesthesia. These fat reduction procedures typically result in pain and discomfort after they are completed as well as downtime for recovery. With CoolSculpting, however, the individual does not have to miss any time from their normal everyday activities and do not undergo surgery due to it being a non-invasive treatment. There is also the benefit of CoolSculpting being a procedure that produces long-lasting results without any risks.
The United States is a country where it is normal to put beauty and health side by side. As a result, more and more people are beginning to get serious about how they both look and feel. CoolSculpting is a great option for anyone who has tried to lose weight and shed those pesky fat deposits through the traditional means of dieting and exercise but has been unsuccessful at it. It can finally eliminate the excess weight around the midsection that results in a pooch and hanging excess skin, aka love handles. CoolSculpting uses cooling technology directly on the areas to be concentrated on by freezing the fat cells. On average, the procedure can reduce around 20 percent of the fat in the area that is treated. Patients also see results as quickly as a mere few weeks after their treatment. The most dramatic of those results can start to show within two to four months in the majority of CoolSculpting patients.
Ease and Convenience with CoolSculpting
Because CoolSculpting is non-invasive, there are absolutely no needles, surgery or lengthy downtime required when it’s used as a fat reduction treatment. That also means patients do not have to worry about long healing times or unsightly scars. The treatment is simple and merely requires the use of an applicator that applies coolness directly to the target area. The procedure targets the fat while not affecting the skin. The treatment was extensively tested at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital, located in Boston. The research showed that when fat cells are exposed to extremely cold temperatures, they can be eliminated permanently, a procedure known as cold lipolysis or cryolipolysis. After the treatment is administered, within three weeks, the fat cells die, resulting in the elimination of the fat and the patient having a slimmer figure.
CoolSculpting takes only around one to two hours during a treatment session. If the patient wants even more noticeable results, they are urged to get additional treatments. The best way to request this type of treatment is to ask for it by name as there are no competitors similar to it. More than 7,000 people worldwide have already undergone the procedure, resulting in more facilities in the United States offering CoolSculpting.
