An invasive surgery isn’t the only way to lose weight and achieve your cosmetic goals. CoolSculpting® is an exciting, new treatment that has helped thousands of people just like you eradicate stubborn body fat. With a non-invasive procedure that can usually be completed in just one hour, many patients are losing up to 20 percent of their fat cells at the treatment site. For those who would like to avoid liposuction, this is an excellent alternative.
Getting Results Without Cosmetic Surgery
Millions of cosmetic surgeries are carried out every single year, but not every patient is ready for one of these procedures. Not only are they more expensive, but patients often have to take weeks off of work as they recover. Even after all of this work, the results are not permanent. Those who are not careful could see the fat come back in as little as a few months.
The other option is diet and exercise. We can never overstate the importance of healthy lifestyle choices, but it is called stubborn body fat for a reason. Research has shown us that spot treating specific areas of the body is impossible. As we burn more calories than we consume, our bodies will break down soft tissue in random areas.
In order to get rid of subcutaneous fat around the midsection, you might have to maintain a strict diet and exercise program for multiple years. If you have recently started down the path of eating healthy and exercising, then CoolSculpting® might be just what you need to finally shed those extra pounds.
The idea of using extremely cold temperatures to affect fat cells goes all the way back to the 1970s. It was around this period that researchers started taking a closer look at exactly how temperatures affect soft tissue cells. As time went on, they found that fat cells can be weakened by colder temperatures while the other cells remain unaffected.
Instead of physically removing the fat, CoolSculpting® works by weakening the walls of the fat cells. After the initial treatment, the patient’s body will begin to metabolize those cells and eventually expel them.
The CoolSculpting® Process
After the patient has had their initial consultation, they will then be able to schedule their first CoolSculpting® appointment. From start to finish, these appointments typically last for around an hour and have no downtime. A small gel pad is placed over the treatment site before the CoolSculpting® paddle is attached to the pad. The patient will then remain in place for the next hour.
Once the hour is up, the specialist will massage the area for a few moments to restore normal blood flow. Over the next two months, the fat cells will be attacked by the patient’s immune system and eventually die off. With the proper diet and exercise, the results of CoolSculpting® can be permanent.
