Warmer weather will be here before we know it, and with warmer weather comes bikini season! If you are unhappy with excess fat pockets and would like to be slimmer in time for summer, CoolSculpting may be able to help! Read on to learn more about this treatment and expected results.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a cutting-edge body sculpting treatment that uses cooling technology to freeze away stubborn pockets of fat. This treatment can address almost any area of the body, including the chin, upper arms, abdomen, flanks, and inner and outer thighs.
During treatment, an applicator will be placed onto the treatment area and slight suction will occur. Then, the cooling technology will numb the treatment area, making treatment virtually painless. The cooling will then work to freeze and destroy stubborn fat cells, while leaving surrounding tissues unharmed. During treatment, many patients read, check their email, or even nap.
What to Expect After Treatment
Because CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical body sculpting procedure, there is no downtime required after treatment. Patients may begin to see changes after three weeks, but will experience the most dramatic results after two months. Fat cells will continue to be flushed out for up to 4-6 months after treatment.
Who Can Benefit from CoolSculpting?
Both men and women who are living with stubborn fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise can often benefit from CoolSculpting. Many patients also choose CoolSculpting over surgical alternatives because there are no incisions, stitches, or downtime required.
