Spot fat reduction is completely impossible with exercise alone. While you can eventually burn any problematic body fat, specific movements will not eradicate fat in a particular area. If you are ready to finally get rid of stubborn body fat as quickly and safely as possible, then it might be time for you to take a look at CoolSculpting®. This is an FDA-approved fat reduction procedure that can remove up to 25 percent of the fat cells at a treatment site during a single session.
The Technology Behind CoolSculpting®
CoolSculpting® is based on a form of technology known as Cryolipolysis®. The soft tissue within an individual’s body responds to temperature variations in different ways. Fat cells tend to become damaged much quicker than the surrounding soft tissue when exposed to cold temperatures. Over the years, researchers have developed a cosmetic procedure that allows specialists to cool down and weaken the fat cells so the body can metabolize them naturally.
A Look at the Results
Just as with all other cosmetic procedures, every patient’s experience is slightly different. On average, CoolSculpting® will destroy around 20 to 25 percent of the fat cells at the treatment site. Within a few weeks of the first session, the patient’s body will begin to slowly expel the fat cells. Unlike many other fat loss treatments, the results will be permanent as long as the patient is able to control their weight.
What Does CoolSculpting® Feel Like?
This treatment involves the use of one or more paddles that adhere to the patient’s skin through suction. Once in place, cold temperatures penetrate below the surface of the skin. Most patients claim it feels like nothing more than a blast of cold air on their skin. Within a few minutes, the area generally becomes numb and the patient feels nothing at all. Some of our patients even nap during their CoolSculpting® appointments.
The Ideal CoolSculpting® Patient
If you are a relatively healthy adult who would like to make subtle changes to your appearance by trimming and toning your body, then you are most likely a great candidate for CoolSculpting®. Before having this treatment carried out, our specialist will speak with you about what you can do to improve the results. Taking the time to begin making progress toward your ideal size will reduce your risk of gaining the weight back.
