For whatever reason, there are certain areas of the body that tend to hold on to pockets of fat more than others. These stubborn areas tend to resist diet and exercise. That is where CoolSculpting® can come in to save the day. It is a treatment specifically designed for treating those “problem areas” so that you can have the body you have been working so hard to achieve.
How Does CoolSculpting® Work?
The device used for CoolSculpting® is placed on the area being targeted. It lowers the temperature of the fat cells underneath the skin to the point that they cannot survive. CoolSculpting® is a safe and precise treatment. Once a fat cell has been cooled to the point that it crystallizes and dies, it will release its contents. Your body will then begin to flush out this fat very naturally. Once a fat cell is destroyed, it stays that way forever. Your body will not attempt to heal it or replace it.
What to Expect
The first step in the process is to come in for a consultation. This is where your specific wants and needs can be discussed and a treatment plan can be created. While some people see their optimal results with just one treatment, others will benefit from more. It all depends on the unique case.
When you come in for your treatment, you are encouraged to relax. Some people choose to read, while others play on their phones. You may feel an intense cold in the beginning, but this goes away within a matter of minutes as the area becomes numb.
Since this is a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment, there is no set “recovery” period afterward. You are free to resume your normal daily activities. In fact, many people choose to have CoolSculpting® done over a break from their other errands.
Results with CoolSculpting®
Results develop over time as your body goes through the process of flushing out the fat. Generally speaking, you will notice improvements in the weeks and months after your treatment. For most people, the peak results are seen after multiple months. Although the treated fat cells do not come back, it is important to have a healthy lifestyle in order to maintain your results.
