CoolSculpting® is the only non-surgical, non-invasive procedure for freezing fat cleared by the FDA. Stubborn fat is eliminated through the use of controlled cooling. In most cases, the targeted fat has not responded to diet and exercise. The results are noticeable, proven, and last for a long time. The treatment is fast, and many individuals have the procedure performed during their lunch hour. The targeted areas of fat on the body are frozen. The body then absorbs and eliminates the dead fat cells during the next few weeks. The treatment is extremely effective if you maintain your weight after the procedure.
As your fatty tissues are cooled, approximately 25 percent of your fat cells in the targeted areas are destroyed. Once your fat cells have been frozen, they will die. The process is called cryoliposis. The procedure begins when the machine is used on the targeted area. Strong suction is applied, and the fat cells beneath your skin are frozen. For the first few weeks after treatment, your fat cells will break down. The lymphatic system of your body can then eliminate the dead cells as waste. CoolSculpting® is extremely effective for areas where diet and exercise have been ineffective such as a double chin, arm fat and love handles.
The procedure is often used for small areas. There is also a special applicator for the larger areas. In most cases, more than one treatment is necessary to achieve the desired results. It is important to keep your expectations realistic. The actual time necessary for your treatment depends on how many areas you are having treated and the size of these areas.
The Results of CoolSculpting®
For the next couple of months, you will see a continued improvement in the appearance of bulges. The CoolSculpting® treatment is safe. The machine has been cleared by the FDA for all licensed practitioners. Some of the most commonly treated areas include the neck, double chin, love handles, abdomen, arms, and thighs. This procedure is an excellent alternative to liposuction.
It is important to note a healthy weight must be kept to establish permanent results. The treatments are usually given a few months apart. This provides your body with the time necessary to organically dispose of the dead fat cells. The recommendation is to allow a minimum of thirty days between treatments.
