CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved treatment for getting rid of unwanted pockets of fat on different parts of the body. Until recently, liposuction was the main option for getting rid of stubborn pockets of fat on body but CoolSculpting now provides a non-invasive and very effective alternative form of treatment.
CoolSculpting works by targeting and cooling fat cells, which causes them to die over a period of weeks and months. Because of the refined technology that’s used for CoolSculpting, it’s possible to target and freeze the fat cells without damaging the surrounding skin and cells.
There are several key benefits to CoolSculpting. These benefits include –
- Non-invasive – One of the biggest benefits of CoolSculpting is that it’s a completely non-invasive type of treatment. This means there are no incisions, needles or anaesthetic required. This is a huge plus for many people, especially those would like to get liposuction but don’t like the idea of needles, incisions and scarring.
- Effective results – Most importantly, CoolSculpting is very effective and the results are long-term. Once the fat cells are killed, they are gone forever. That is not to say you cannot gain fat again in this area but with the right lifestyle, you’ll be free of stubborn pockets of fat in problem areas that cannot be treated through diet and exercise alone.
- Fast treatment – A CoolSculpting session typically takes around 1 hour to complete. The number of sessions required will depend on the number of areas you want to treat and the results you’re looking to achieve.
What CoolSculpting is not
Although CoolSculpting is a very safe and effective way to treat unwanted areas of fat on the body, it’s important to know that it is not supposed to be used as an alternative to weight loss. The only viable way to lose weight all over your body is through a sensible diet and regular exercise.
Like liposuction, CoolSculpting is way for those who are at or close to their ideal weight, to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat on the body. Common areas that are treated include the thighs, abdomen and the area below the chin (submental fat).
