How Effective is Non-Invasive Fat Removal? Learn All About CoolSculpting®
For many people, stubborn body fat in specific areas is a source of insecurity and discomfort. Maybe you’ve tried losing weight in a particular part of your body through diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes without seeing improvement. Or perhaps you love the shape and size of your body but dislike how excess fat looks on your stomach, sides, chin, or thighs.
Whatever the case, a non-invasive treatment method is available that can tackle your excess body fat and restore your confidence–CoolSculpting®! This has been a go-to procedure for patients and professionals who have wanted to reduce fat for over a decade. Let’s dive into what makes this procedure so popular.
What is CoolSculpting®?
Essentially, CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive medical procedure designed to eliminate excess fat cells that lie under the skin. Since it is not a surgery, it is a desirable alternative to other methods requiring patients to go under anaesthesia or heal from painful incisions after undergoing fat removal. The non-invasive nature of this treatment makes it ideal for folks who are turned off by some of the side effects and recovery processes of traditional fat removal treatments.
If you have been looking into this treatment method, you have probably seen how popular it is among patients and fat removal professionals. After gaining official approval from the FDA in 2010, CoolSculpting® became all the rage. From 2010-2013, the number of treatments of this type performed by professionals skyrocketed by over 800%.
Although it is trendy, it is not a magic bullet. It has risks and benefits that every client has to weigh for themselves. Even though its efficacy has been proven over time, there may be better fit for each client that walks into our office. Moreover, it doesn’t consistently achieve the exact results that our clients would like. This is why we want to consult with our clients about the pros, cons, and potential outcomes for their unique situation before we begin this treatment.
Is CoolSculpting® Non-Invasive and Non-Surgical?
As we mentioned above, CoolSculpting® is non-invasive and non-surgical. This means that you won’t have to deal with unsightly scarring, painful extended recovery, or stay in the hospital after treatment. After receiving a CoolSculpting® treatment, you will quickly be able to resume your regular activities. This makes it so appealing to many clients across the United States.
What are the Benefits of CoolSculpting®?
For most of us, the less complicated a procedure is, the better it will be for our bodies and minds. From the mechanics of the treatment to the procedure itself, CoolSculpting® is an uncomplicated treatment that can be performed with relative efficiency. The simplicity of the procedure makes it easy for you to understand and easy for you to decide whether it is right for you. As your treatment professional explains the procedure’s simplicity, it might sound too good to be true. Don’t worry, though–it’s definitely not!
Unlike many other methods of fat removal or reduction, CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive treatment method. This means you will not have to go under the knife to get results from this treatment. For most people, going with the least invasive method possible for fat removal is the best way to go. After all, no one wants to go through a rougher recovery than necessary. The pain, costs, and discomfort associated with CoolSculpting® tend to be less intensive than fat removal surgery such as liposuction. This leads many people to explore CoolSculpting® as a fat removal option over other methods unless they have factors that prevent them from considering it.
When treatment is non-invasive, it generally poses fewer health and safety risks than a more invasive alternative. This is one of the main reasons professionals and patients prefer to go with CoolSculpting® over alternative fat removal methods if the patient is a good candidate for the procedure and has no barriers to it.
When you need fat removal in a specific area, such as the belly, arms, thighs, or even underneath the chin, you will want to use a fat reduction method that focuses on the problem area. Since CoolSculpting® is area-selective, you can target specific troublesome areas on your body and leave the other areas of the body alone. This makes the procedure go much faster than an all-over fat removal procedure and tends to make a recovery more comfortable for the patient. Additionally, it allows you to see results where you want them most.
If you have a specific area that has always made you feel self-conscious or less than your most beautiful self because of excess body fat, CoolSculpting® might be the right avenue to become the most confident version of yourself.
One of the main reasons why professionals and patients like to go with CoolSculpting® is its natural results. Sometimes, cosmetic procedures can leave signs that the patient has received them. Although this isn’t necessarily bad, it can make you feel uncomfortable or insecure about looking in the mirror and seeing a scar or other sign that cosmetic procedures gave you your new looks.
This procedure is the ideal fat removal treatment for a subtle change in appearance that looks completely natural. Friends, family members, and co-workers will compliment you on the wonderful results of the treatment, even if they can’t quite tell how you got to this great new look. Mostly, they’ll probably assume that you just lost the excess fat. If you want to share how this treatment has changed your life and looks, you can do that! However, if a discreet, natural fat loss look is vital to you, this might be the best treatment for you as long as you qualify.
We know how busy life can get and how precious time can be, so we don’t want you to spend more time in our office than necessary. While you should be able to enjoy your time here as self-care, we understand that you have a whole life outside these four walls that matter to you. That is the beauty of this procedure–it is relatively fast compared to other treatment options for fat removal. In fact, depending on how large or small the area is that you are treating, you may be able to get in and out of our office in a matter of minutes for your CoolSculpting® treatment.
Beyond the treatment time, the recovery time for this procedure is fast, too. You should be able to resume your regular activities right away since it is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment. As another perk, you will be able to see results as soon as the treatment is done. Although it can take multiple sessions to receive the exact results you want, you should notice a difference immediately, which will boost your confidence and make you feel better fast.
Helps Tighten the skin
One of the main complaints that those who go through fat loss procedures or weight loss have is the extra loose skin that comes with this process. Thankfully, CoolSculpting® helps tighten the skin while reducing the number of fat cells under the skin. Because of the gradual, moderate reduction of fat over time, CoolSculpting® should not cause the user to have saggy skin afterwards.
Usually, this problem is more likely to occur in patients who lose a lot of fat over a short period because the body does not have time to adjust to the new fat cells. For CoolSculpting® patients, loose skin is not a concern after treatment. Even if you are removing or reducing fat cells in large areas, you still will not have to worry about having loose skin afterwards since it is a gradual process that produces results over a period of time. Also, the non-invasive nature of the treatment means that you won’t lose skin elasticity as a result of scarring or other trauma to the body.
How Does CoolSculpting® Work?
This procedure, also called “cryolipolysis,” uses a simple method to work. All it takes is two panels that freeze the fat as the targeted area is sandwiched between them. The freezing aspect of the treatment is where it gets the name “CoolSculpting.”
As the treatment panels do their magic, the appearance and amount of fat cells shrink immediately. Although it can take multiple treatments to reach your goal, you should notice a difference in the formation of the area right away. Depending on the size of the site, the CoolSculpting® treatment can take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour to properly work.
In conclusion, CoolSculpting® is a great way to remove fat cells and reduce the appearance of fat in specific, targeted areas without relying on invasive or surgical treatment procedures. It is ideal for men and women who want to lose stubborn fat in a certain part of their body without going through painful processes that take a long time to perform and recover.
