What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting, known also as cryolipolysis, is a non-surgical treatment for body contouring that can target and eliminate stubborn body fat that you have been unable to lose through other means. CoolSculpting works by targeting fat cells, giving a slim and contoured appearance; it is a non-invasive treatment that carries lower risks than other, more invasive alternatives and is considered to be a very safe procedure with few known or reported side effects.
CoolSculpting works by making use of freezing temperatures to break down and kill fat cells. The cold temperatures used in the treatment do not damage surrounding cells and tissues, and there is no damage to the skin or any of the underlying tissue. CoolSculpting vacuums the skin above the targeted treatment area, drawing the tissue into an applicator that cools the fat cells, which then proceed to die and are naturally eliminated by the body’s waste disposal processes.
In general a CoolSculpting appointment will last approximately an hour, although the length of your treatment will be determined by several factors, including the location that you are having treated. With there being no damage to the surrounding skin or the underlying tissue, there is no downtime after treatment, which results in an effective and safe alternative to a more invasive method of fat loss and removal.
Am I candidate for CoolSculpting?
The best candidates for CoolSculpting are those who are at or near their ideal weight, but still have stubborn pockets of fat that have proven resistant to healthy diet and regular exercise. It is important to know that CoolSculpting should not be considered a solution for weight loss; it is a method in which stubborn, resistant fat can be eliminated and the body contoured through the treatment.
How many sessions will it take?
There are several factors which will impact the number of sessions needed to achieve desired results with CoolSculpting; these factors include the size of the treated area, the amount of at, and several other factors you will discuss with your practitioner. However, on average, the majority of patients will need two to three treatment sessions for each targeted treatment area.
How does CoolSculpting work?
By using a process known as cryolipolysis, it works by placing a roll of fat into two panels that cool the fat to a freezing temperature. Once frozen, the fat cells die and are then excreted out of the body through the liver within several weeks following initial treatments, with the results reveal usually coming within three months of completing treatment. Additionally, CoolSculpting can also help with the reduction of the appearance of cellulite, particularly on the legs, buttocks, and arms – with some using it to reduce the fat underneath their chin.
Typically, CoolSculpting treatments take an hour for each targeted treatment area. Larger treatment areas may require more treatments than smaller treatment areas, and also may require more CoolSculpting treatments to see full results.
What is the difference between liposuction and CoolSculpting?
Liposuction is a far more aggressive treatment than CoolSculpting, allowing for more fat to be removed in a single session. Additionally, liposuction can also be used to harvest fat to be used in a fat transfer. CoolSculpting, as well, is intended for stubborn body fat and for those who are already close to or have mostly achieved their ideal body weight and fat distribution.
