CoolSculpting is a non-surgical procedure that eliminates stubborn areas of fat that simply won’t go away — no matter how much diet and exercise you do. The only procedure of its kind that has been cleared by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA), CoolSculpting is completed right at your doctor’s office, making it convenient. Below are some other benefits of this groundbreaking medical treatment.
1. It’s Effective
Many people who have a goal of getting a better body know that they’ll reach a plateau at some point. In most cases, there is the expectation that you’ll break through this plateau and achieve your ideal body. It can be discouraging to put in a great deal of work and effort without being able to get rid of those stubborn areas on your love handles, abdomen, chin, thighs and more.
With CoolSculpting, you could start seeing results in just a few weeks. Within one to three months, you’ll notice the best results. You’ll notice that your clothes fit better and that you’ve lost those extra fat deposits that used to pads your problem areas. Studies have shown that CoolSculpting can reduce the fat cells in an area by as much as 25 percent.
2. It’s Safe
CoolSculpting is performed by a plastic surgeon or another medical professional who has been trained to use its special tool. During the procedure, the tool is used to cool a particular part of your body. This freezes the fat cells and kills them. Eventually — usually within a few weeks — the dead fat cells are broken down by your body and flushed out of your system via your liver.
3. It’s an Office Procedure
CoolSculpting is a convenient method of fat reduction that takes place right in your medical provider’s office. There are no needles involved and it’s not surgery. The procedure is also non-invasive so there’s no chance of infection. There is also only a minimal time commitment required in order to see results. Typically, each CoolSculpting session lasts between one and two hours. Perhaps, best of all there is zero recovery time meaning you can immediately go back to work or home and carry on with your regular duties.
4. There are minimal side effects
Compared to traditional plastic surgery, CoolSculpting has only minimal side effects. Of course, not everyone will experience these side effects but they could include the following:
- tugging at the treatment site due to your skin being manipulated between the cooling panels.
- stinging or achiness at the site that is likely due to the intensely cold temperatures that are used. This went away on its own after a few days.
- Redness or swelling at the site. These temporary side effects occur because of the cold temperatures that the skin is exposed to. Along with skin sensitivity and bruising, these side effects typically go away on their own after a few weeks.
CoolSculpting is a gentle and noninvasive method of fat reduction that allows you to get the body you’ve always wanted. It’s a viable alternative to plastic surgery for many people.
