Still have those lumps and bumps left over from weight gain despite diet and exercise? In the past, you might have had to resort to invasive liposuction or frequency devices to achieve that smooth look you really want. Today, CoolSculpting® offers a noninvasive, nonsurgical solution that offers very impressive results.
How It Works
CoolSculpting® uses a revolutionary new technology known as cryolipolysis. During the procedure, the fat cells are cooled to a temperature that will cause them to be completely eliminated from the body. The temperature used is much higher than anything that would harm skin, nerves, or muscle, making the entire process very safe to use.
During this noninvasive procedure, a skin-protecting gel is first applied to the skin. The CoolSculpting® applicator is then positioned over that area, quickly cooling the fat cells until they are destroyed with very little discomfort. While the fat cells would be suctioned out of the body during liposuction, this procedure allows for the destroyed cells to be eliminated from the body naturally, dissipating slowly over a period of a few months. The entire process takes about an hour to complete.
The majority of patients who undergo this procedure will notice a difference in bulges after just a few weeks. This will continue to improve as the body eliminates the destroyed fat cells over the following couple of months. The skin over the treated areas will retract on its own since its elasticity was not tampered with during the procedure.
Typically, there is no need to begin a new diet or exercise program following CoolSculpting®. If you are already participating in a regular exercise regime and eating healthy, continuing to do so can only help your body heal faster and keep the fat deposits from reappearing. The majority of patients will only need to undergo one treatment per targeted area, and if a repeat is needed, it can be done within three months of the original treatment.
