Coolsculpting. It has a cool name and is an equally as cool process. Literally. For those who haven’t heard of it, Coolsculpting is a non-invasive method of fat reduction that kills fat cells by freezing them. Unlike other surgical procedures, it is a quick and easy option for those who already live a healthy lifestyle. Using targeted technology, a technician is able to precisely pinpoint the area for the desired fat reduction.
Stubborn Fat Removal
While it kills fat cells, it isn’t a way of weight loss; it is a way to remove stubborn fat from areas of the body that need some sculpting. Partnered with a healthy diet and regular exercise, it is a way to sculpt the body without the risk of infection or side effects associated with surgical procedures. Think of it as a final touch to give your body the sculpted look you desire, giving you lasting and permanent results.
Surprisingly, the technology really isn’t as high tech as one would think. The origin came from the concept that children sucking on a popsicle for an extended period of time would end up with dimples on their cheeks. Using the same idea, scientists were able to create a method that targets fat cells, without damaging any of the surrounding cells. And once a fat cell dies, that’s the end of it. Once the cells are gone, the area that was targeted is left smooth and trim.
While it sounds like a chilly procedure, it is really quite simple, and virtually painless. It is a non-invasive procedure, requiring no harsh medication in advance of a treatment. Patients can choose to stay awake during the procedure, while others use it as an excuse for a nap. During the treatment, fat cells are crystallized with a precise tool which causes them to die, without harming any surrounding tissue. Dead fat cells are then naturally processed by the body and flushed away. Once the fat cells are gone, they don’t return.
It typically takes about three weeks before the results are visible, because that is the time it takes for the cells to be flushed out of your system. Depending on the area needed, you will have follow-up appointments to target any remaining areas in need of sculpting.
The procedure is truly a state of the art application of a very simple concept. The fact that it can target specific areas of fat, without damaging the surrounding tissues, makes it unlike any other fat reducing technique. Those who are struggling with stubborn areas of fat no matter how hard they diet or exercise will find that Coolsculpting is just what they needed.
