Coolsculpting is a noninvasive procedure that can reduce the size of fat cells by freezing them away. The science behind the process is the therapy initiates the fat cell death process. This process begins when the fat cells are cooled to a temperature of approximately -5 degrees Fahrenheit. In the following weeks and months after the treatment, the body excretes the cells that were killed during the process. Furthermore, the procedure stimulates the production of elastin and collagen so that the treated area is left tighter and with a more youthful appearance.
What is Coolsculpting?
Developed by scientists at Harvard University, Coolsculpting is the only FDA-approved treatment that literally freezes fat away permanently without extensive surgery or downtime. Coolsculpting gently targets fat cells underneath the skin while keeping surrounding tissues intact. During a typical treatment, a handheld device is placed on treated areas and the controlled cooling is administered, freezing underlying fat. These cells are then permanently disabled, and are gradually removed by the body through natural processes.
Is Coolsculpting Safe?
Coolsculpting is specially designed for safety and comfort, allowing patients to relax, read, check mobile devices, or even nap during the procedure. With over one million treatments worldwide, Coolsculpting is now a widely popular treatment to create better contours in the abdomen and “love handles”.
Am I a Good Candidate for Coolsculpting?
Men and women who have areas of stubborn excess body fat that they cannot effectively treat with other methods may be candidates for Coolsculpting. Although the procedure is ideal for reducing the volume of fat in certain areas of the body, it is not a weight loss solution or a substitute for diet and exercise.
Patients who undergo this procedure should be prepared to adopt a lifestyle of healthy eating and physical exercise in order to maintain their results, as weight gain can potentially reverse the acquired results.
When Will I See Results?
As the process of naturally removing fat cells from the body is one that takes place over time, patients may not experience the full results for several weeks or a few months after treatment takes place. Once the fat cells are removed, they are gone for good, but multiple sessions may be necessary in order to achieve desired results.
Based on your individual treatment plan, you will be advised on how many sessions you can expect as well as any potential risks and side effects that may apply to you.
