For many people, no amount of eating right and exercise seems to be enough to help them get to their body goals. There are some areas of the body that like to stubbornly cling on to fat. This is where CoolSculpting can come in. With this revolutionary treatment, you can lay back and relax while the fat is destroyed forever.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
In order to help you shed pounds in those problem areas, CoolSculpting lowers the temperatures of target fat cells to the point that they cannot survive. The process is called crystallization, and it results in these cells never being able to store fat again. Since the number of fat cells in the body stops changing in the teenage years, this means you can have permanent results with this treatment.
When the fat cells are destroyed, they release their contents. Your body handles this by naturally flushing out the fat. This is a gradual process which takes a few months, meaning your results will appear quite naturally. Most people start to notice visible improvements weeks after treatment. Peak results are usually achieved a number of months after treatment. Although the fat cells targeted are permanently destroyed, your body will still be capable of gaining weight in other areas. As such, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle after treatment.
The CoolSculpting Treatment Process
The first step is to come in for a consultation. This is done to establish what your goals are and to create a treatment plan for you. When it is time for the CoolSculpting to begin, you will be able to lie or sit in a comfortable position. The CoolSculpting device is then placed on the target area and you are free to relax. Many people bring a book or play on their phones. Some people even fall asleep for a bit.
At first, you may experience extreme cold where the device is. This usually fades within 10 minutes. The device is designed to freeze the fat cells without doing any damage to your skin. Once the treatment is over, you can immediately go back to your normal routine. There is no recovery period after CoolSculpting.
