There’s no better way to prepare for summer than scheduling an appointment for Coolsculpting treatment. This non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure may help remove excess fat cells from underneath your skin with long-lasting results. In addition to ‘freezing away the fat’, Coolsculpting can also reduce the appearance of fine lines and cellulite on affected areas of the body.
A treatment that freezes fat cells away may seem too good to be true but don’t worry– there is plenty of research to back its effects and it was approved by the FDA over a decade ago. Since then, the popularity of this procedure has increased exponentially, with millions of satisfied patients everywhere.
We’ll discuss a few things you should consider before beginning Coolsculpting treatments.
How Does It Work?
During a Coolsculpting procedure, a roll of fat is placed between two freezing panels. The applicator panels then draw fat cells to the surface, freezing them, and then discarding them in the form of waste through the body’s lymphatic system.
This only takes about 30 minutes and has short-term side effects that diminish over a couple of days. Serious side effects or complications from Coolsculpting procedures are very rare.
The treatment is not considered painful, but some clients experience slight discomfort, so you should keep that in mind.
Who Is the Ideal Candidate?
This treatment is perfect for anyone who is looking to reduce small amounts of extra fat around their bodies that have been stubborn against diet and exercise in the past. Coolsculpting is not a replacement for weight loss treatments, and in fact, works best for people who use this in conjunction with a healthy diet and regime.
If you are obese or suffer from body-temperature-related illnesses, you may want to consult a doctor before undergoing Coolsculpting treatment.
