Most individuals who research methods of getting rid of excess fat are familiar with the heat treatments that can melt away fat cells. However, many are wary of this type of cosmetic procedure because of the risk of heat damage to the adjacent cells.
An alternative is the fat freeze procedure. The revolutionary new CoolSculpting® fat removal method is becoming more and more popular because it is effective, does not involve surgery, and can be repeated at regular intervals. We offer this type of fat freezing treatment for our clients who wish to shed fat in the belly, buttocks, and thighs.
How CoolSculpting® Works
When fat cells are subjected to low temperatures, they begin to crystallize. The targeted cooling effect destroys the fat cells, and the body eliminates them naturally. Known as Cryolipolysis®, this is a scientifically proven method for getting rid of unwanted fat without damaging the adjacent muscles and skin tissues.
The instrument used is a large machine monitor and a handheld device that delivers cool bursts. The device has numerous temperature and burst duration settings. The actual temperature of the device surface is calibrated according to the amount and depth of the excess fat material.
What You Can Expect
Treatment time may vary. The client is made comfortable on a medical bed. The instrument is passed over a section of skin and the cooling effect slowly permeates inward. The fat cells located underneath the skin are subjected to ultra-cold, but the sensation is actually quite pleasant.
After a few weeks, we may recommend a second treatment. As the fat cells are crystallized, they begin to lose their cohesion. The fat itself is no longer recognized by the body as a necessary nutrient storage container, so it is flushed from the system. The result is tighter skin without folds or creases.
Some Things to Remember
The CoolSculpting® procedure works best on individuals who have a localized buildup of fat in the torso or belly area. It is not intended as a cure-all for those who have a huge amount of fat buildup.
Because this is an outpatient procedure, no downtime is experienced by the client. Normal activities can be resumed at once. However, we may recommend combining this treatment with other weight loss techniques such as changes to the diet.
