You’ve been spending the last several months making some big changes in your life.
You’ve finally taken control of your eating habits, you’ve started making more time for working out or walking outside and you’re really starting to see some changes in your energy levels and your body.
But what about the times your weight loss slows right down and you feel like you’re making no more progress? Perhaps you’ve reached your goal but you still have a few problem areas you’d like to tackle and slim down even further.
Or maybe you have always been in shape but you still have those few little spots where the fat just doesn’t seem to want to leave.
These are the times you just need a little extra helping hand. No, don’t worry, we aren’t talking about liposuction or major surgery to help enhance your appearance. We are talking about CoolSculpting®.
CoolSculpting® is the gold standard non-surgical fat reduction treatment worldwide. CoolSculpting® is a walk-in, walk-out non-surgical fat reduction procedure by a treatment called Cryolipolysis, or simply freezing the fat.
This procedure is done in a clinic, by a healthcare professional to help reduce fat in unwanted areas.
It is not meant as an overall weight loss remedy to replace a healthy diet and exercise, but rather a solution for those few spots with stubborn fat you just can’t seem to shed.
All About CoolSculpting®
The whole idea and concept for CoolSculpting® actually came from children and popsicles.
Harvard University Scientists had observed that children who frequently ate popsicles began developing dimples in their cheeks.
The reason? They discovered that ice can actually damage pockets of fat cells without causing any damage to the surrounding tissue and skin. This is what led to the method and science behind CoolSculpting®.
Who Can Receive This Treatment?
The CoolSculpting® procedure is meant to target areas of unwanted fat in men and women. It is not a procedure like gastric bypass that will aid you in losing a large amount of weight.
The clinic will work with you to determine your problem areas and create a proper treatment plan specific to your body and your needs.
This procedure is safe for most people, but it’s extremely important to disclose all your medical conditions to the clinic. Those suffering with cryoglobulinemia, cold agglutinin disease, or paroxysmal cold haemoglobinuria should not undergo the treatment.
Is The Procedure Safe? Is It Painful?
The procedure delivers controlled cooling to targeted areas of the body where stubborn fat cells are not wanted. The cooling treatment only affects the fat cells under the skin and doesn’t harm the skin itself.
The advanced technology even has built in safety features that will trigger the machine to shut down if it senses the skin getting too cold.
CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure. There are no needles involved and the “down time” is very minimal (pretty much non-existent). Infact, most patients return to their regular day and routine immediately following the procedure.
While undergoing the treatment, you may experience mild pinching, tugging, intense cold, tingling, stinging, sensations of pulling or mild cramping at the treatment site. These are all normal and should be expected during your treatment.
After your appointment, you may experience some minor side effects such as swelling, redness, tenderness, stinging, firmness, bruising, cramping, aching, itching or skin sensitivity. Again, these are all normal side effects and should diminish on their own in a few days or weeks.
If you’re at all concerned with the side effects however, it’s important to call your doctor or the clinic where the procedure was done.
What Is The Cost Of CoolSculpting® And How Long Does It Take To See Results?
As with any other type of treatment, the results and cost will vary from person to person. Booking in your initial consultation will allow your clinic to determine how many applications you’ll need to treat all your problem areas and this will obviously determine the cost.
Typically you will begin to see results in anywhere from 2-6 months. Again, everyone’s body is different so the timeline will vary from patient to patient. During the procedure, the fat cells are frozen (crystallized), destroyed and then over time your body will naturally process the fat and eliminate the dead cells. Therefore, there is a waiting time to see your results, but we promise…they do come. All great things take time.
Once the treatment is completed, the results last forever. It is possible to still gain weight after the procedure, but you’ll likely experience less gain in the treated areas because there are overall fewer fat cells in those spots.
