The market is flooded with innumerable fat-loss solutions that have found popularity among the masses. Fitness pills, teas, and creams have taken over the fitness industry. These short- term solutions tend to have several negative effects and result in the person gaining the fat back.
An Alternative to Surgery
A good diet and exercise regimen can help in getting rid of excess fat. Sometimes, however, it is near impossible to lose stubborn body fat. In these cases, many people consider liposuction surgery. This requires a period of downtime, which can be painful and uncomfortable.
For these patients, CoolSculpting may be the ideal solution. CoolSculpting is an innovative and useful way to lose excess stubborn fat without the need for pills or surgery.
What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is type of cryolipolysis, a form of fat reduction achieved through cold temperatures. The procedure targets the unwanted fat cells in the body with cooling energy and gets rid of them permanently.
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure and therefore does not involve any surgery, cuts, or injections. For this reason, many people have started to prefer it over traditional liposuction procedures. Because the procedure will not require surgery or anesthetics, it carries less risk and is a safer fat-loss option.
How Is CoolSculpting Performed?
First, warming gel pads will be placed on the area that needs sculpting in order to protect the superficial skin from the cold temperatures. Two paddles will be held around the area, and vacuum suction will be used to keep the region in place.
The CoolSculpting device will then project cooling energy. The cooling sensation targets fatty tissues and breaks them down. Cold temperatures do not have an effect on the surrounding cells and will not damage the skin or tissues surrounding the fat cells.
The process takes about an hour per treatment area. During this procedure, you will feel a mild cooling sensation.
After the Treatment
Afterward the CoolSculpting session, you may feel a slight soreness, which will disappear within a day’s time. You can resume your regular lifestyle immediately afterwards. Slight swelling or signs of skin sensitivity are side-effects that have been experienced only by a handful of patients.
The full effects of CoolSculpting can be seen about six months after the procedure. During this time, fat cells will be slowly processed and filtered out by the body, creating a significant decrease in excess fat in the area.
It is important to take care of one’s health with the right diet and an active lifestyle after CoolSculpting. This will help to maintain the treatment’s results.
Does CoolSculpting Work?
CoolSculpting has become quite the rage given its high rate of success. It is preferred by a majority of people seeking permanent fat-loss solutions. Patients have found up to 19 percent fat loss with CoolSculpting.
