Getting rid of stubborn fat, especially in light of an effective diet and workout routine, can be a huge hassle. No matter how hard you try, those few areas simply won’t go away. As such, many turn to liposuction to remove this fat once and for all. Liposuction is a surgical procedure that requires less downtime and is an alternative for those seeking a less-invasive, non-surgical alternative to eliminating stubborn and unwanted fat.
Introducing CoolSculpting. This new, revolutionary technology uses no needles or sharp instruments to reduce areas of fat to create a natural looking and smooth appearance. It is completely safe, FDA approved, and very effective, and has been performed over 1.5 million times worldwide.
CoolSculpting works by freezing the fat cells in the area you desire, though this is typically relegated to the thighs, abdomen, and “love handles.” The procedure begins by targeting the desired area and pulling it between two cooling panels. Once secure, the panels get to work by freezing the stubborn fat cells. Eventually, these frozen fat cells, now dead, will be eliminated from the body.
Since CoolSculpting is non-invasive and non-surgical, there is no cutting or injections necessary. The only discomfort you may feel is a firm pull with enough pressure to adequately target the fat cells you seek to eliminate. Despite some initial discomfort, it diminishes quickly, and most patients spend the time browsing their laptops, reading, or simply relaxing in the clean and sanitary MedSpa facility. Some people even find the procedure is so relaxing they can nap through it. The procedure is over quickly, typically within an hour, depending on the amount of fat and number of areas being targeted.
While it would be great to see results immediately, the nature of the procedure means you won’t see results until approximately three weeks after. Around this time your body will begin to flush out the fat cells, a process that occurs over the course of the next four to six months. Since these fat cells are being eliminated from the body for good, there’s no chance of them returning to the affected areas. If weight is gained after the procedure, it will typically be distributed more evenly. It is therefore important to maintain a healthy lifestyle to avoid additional weight gain in the future.
