Diet and exercise are very important when it comes to your body goals. That being said, many people are frustrated or disappointed when they cannot quite reach those goals on their own. This is where CoolSculpting®, a revolutionary way of freezing fat and getting rid of it for good, can come in.
How Does CoolSculpting® Work?
In order to help you contour the body of your dreams, CoolSculpting® targets and eliminates fat in various problem areas. Common target areas of this treatment include:
- Upper Arms
- Banana Rolls (Underneath the Buttocks)
- Double Chin
- Love Handles
- Inner and/or Outer Thighs
The device used for CoolSculpting® is placed on the target area, where it cools down the fat cells underneath. It is able to safely lower the temperature of these fat cells to the point that they crystallize and die. This is done in a way that does no damage to your skin. After these fat cells are dead, your body can flush out their contents through natural processes. This takes some time. As a result, you get gradual, very natural looking results. Since your body no longer creates new fat cells, your results can be permanent with CoolSculpting®.
What to Expect at Your CoolSculpting® Treatment
The first step is to come in and have a consultation where we can discuss your goals and create a personalized treatment plan. When it is time for the actual treatment, you will be able to either sit or lie back and relax, depending on which area is being targeted. While you may experience a few minutes of intense cold, this quickly fades and you will be able to relax. Many people use this time to respond to emails, listen to music, read, or even take a quick nap.
There is no downtime after your treatment. You will be able to immediately go back to your normal routine. You can expect results to begin appearing a few weeks after treatment. The fat flushing will continue in the following months, with peak results being seen after about 3-4. Although you may not be able to regain fat in the treated areas, it is still important to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Otherwise, you may find yourself with new problem areas.
