Looking for a way to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat for good without resorting to surgery? CoolSculpting® may be the perfect choice for you. This very safe, FDA-approved treatment allows you to target those areas of fat that have proven to be resistant to diet and exercise. It is a great way to finally get to your body goals.
How Does CoolSculpting® Work?
CoolSculpting® causes the fat cells in the targeted area to crystallize and die. This is accomplished by lowering the temperature of the cells down to a temperature they cannot survive. This is done in a controlled, safe way that does not harm your skin. Once the fat cells are dead, they are unable to store fat. Not only does this mean they release the fat they are currently storing, but it also means they will be unable to store fat in the future. Since your body stopped making new fat cells when you were a teenager, your results with CoolSculpting® can be permanent. Just be sure to maintain a healthy lifestyle so that new problem areas do not crop up.
What to Expect with CoolSculpting® Treatments
When you decide to have this treatment, you will have a consultation where a treatment plan can be created. A session of CoolSculpting® requires a simple office visit. During your treatment, you will be able to relax. Depending on the area being treated, you will either lay back or sit down. After the initial coldness felt, most people find this treatment quite relaxing. You can read, listen to music, play on your phone, or even take a little nap.
Results develop over time after CoolSculpting® because it takes your body time to flush out the fat. This is a perk for many people who do not want anyone to know they had any help reaching their goals. Typically speaking, you will see improvements after three weeks. Peak results are usually seen two months after treatment, but your body may be busy flushing fat for up to six months.
