What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is the brand name for a fat-freezing technology that non-surgically destroys pockets of fat. It is most often performed on areas of the body where fat is stubborn and hard to get rid of, like the abdomen, flanks, and under the chin.
It works by cooling your body fat to a temperature that kills the fat cells while leaving the surrounding skin completely unharmed. Scientifically known as cryolipolysis, this innovative yet safe method was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration back in 2010.
What Are The Benefits Of CoolSculpting?
Compared to traditional fat removal surgery, CoolSculpting is a much safer and more efficient option for many patients. Here are seven impressive benefits of CoolSculpting:
- It’s Non-Invasive
During this outpatient procedure, the skin above the area of fatty tissue is vacuumed into an applicator. Absolutely no anesthesia, needles, or incisions are necessary. And as an added bonus? No scarring!
- It’s Relatively Pain-Free
Although it is possible to feel pain from the numbness caused by the freezing applicator, most patients only experienced a mild tingling, pinching, or pulling sensation during the procedure.
- Results Come Fast
Full results from this treatment can be seen after just a few weeks! As a point of comparison, liposuction results are typically not noticeable for several months. Moreover, CoolSculpting is documented to yield up to a 30 percent fat loss in the treated area, so it’s possible for some patients to notice a visible reduction in fat even after their first session.
- There Is Virtually No Downtime
With invasive procedures like liposuction, patients have lengthy (and painful) recovery times. Since CoolSculpting is non-invasive, you can return to your everyday activities right after treatment.
- It’s Incredibly Efficient
CoolSculpting has the power to treat multiple areas of the body at once, so you can see fat reduction faster than ever before.
- Fewer Side Effects
Health risks following surgery can include things like internal puncture and infection, which tends to make most patients apprehensive. Due to the non-surgical nature of CoolSculpting, side effects are much fewer and far-between, and much less severe in nature.
