Even the healthiest people deal with “problem areas.” These certain areas are found to resist diet and exercise. These areas are often coined the names; love handles, guts, thunder thighs or muffin tops. Thanks to ever-growing progress and technology, solutions have become available to fight these problem areas. Coolsculpting® has become a popular, safe and effective tool for many people. Here is what you need to know.
What is Coolsculpting?
It is the latest, non-invasive, non-surgical breakthrough for fat reduction. Many are familiar with burning fat but have you heard of freezing fat away? That is exactly what Coolsculpting does. A professional will use this tool to precisely target fat cells. These fat cells are crystallized from under the skin and ultimately cause them to die naturally. The body will then metabolize and reduce the fat. This procedure takes away the stubborn fat deposits and leaves you with a more sculpted body.
Is it painful?
Each session lasts about 35 minutes and since it is non-invasive, non-surgical procedure, there is little to no pain. Fat cells crystallize (freeze) much faster than surrounding areas. This means that the surrounding normal cells, the skin, nerves, and tissue in the area are unaffected. Additionally, gel pads are used to protect the skin. A vast majority of patients say they felt comfortable during the procedure. Some patients even read books or sleep during the sessions.
When will I see results?
Patients will typically start seeing results as quickly as 3 weeks after treatment. After the 2 month mark, patients will see the most dramatic results. The body will still continue to flush out dead fat cells for up to 4 to 6 months.
Will I need supplements
after the treatment?
After using Coolsculping, no supplements are required. Since it is not a diet or exercise program, your lifestyle habits and routines will not be affected. After the procedure and seeing the results, many people find more motivation to maintain their body’s care. When they see that they look better, they feel better and want to preserve their new contoured body.
