If you’ve been asking yourself – Should I try CoolSculpting? – continue reading to learn all about the treatment and if it’s right for you.
Should I Try CoolSculpting?
Should I try CoolSculpting? This is a common question among women and men who have unwanted areas of fat and wish to avoid liposuction.
In order to properly answer this question, it’s important to assess your goals.
For patients that hope to get rid of targeted fat pockets, CoolSculpting is an excellent option.
It’s also well-suited to healthy adults who are at or near their ideal weight and wish to sculpt certain trouble spots like the abdomen, flanks, hips, thighs, upper arms, and under the buttocks.
That being said, CoolSculpting is not a weight loss treatment, nor is it recommended for individuals that want to eliminate a large volume of fat, from multiple parts of the body.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
In addition to asking – Should I try CoolSculpting? – many patients are curious about how nonsurgical fat freezing works.
CoolSculpting uses controlled cooling in order to selectively target and freeze subcutaneous fat cells.
In doing so, it causes fat cells to undergo apoptosis (cell death), without damaging skin or surrounding structures. This occurs without any incisions, cuts in the skin, or anesthesia.
Following a CoolSculpting treatment, destroyed fat cells are gradually eliminated from the body to reveal a slim, sculpted physique, free from scarring.
Patients can begin to note visible fat reduction in four-to-six weeks, but it can take eight-to-12 weeks for full effects.
