As a result of advancements in medical technology, surgery is no longer necessary for effective body sculpting. This means that patients can avoid incisions and long recovery periods while reshaping their bodies.
There are many who are insecure about the way their bodies look. For those who are looking for a change but want to avoid surgery, an effective non-surgical method has been developed. This method is known as CoolSculpting, a form of cryolipolysis (fat reduction through freezing).
CoolSculpting uses extreme low temperature to destroy fat cells, thus reducing trouble areas of the body in volume. The method can help patients achieve an appealing, slimmer, toned body, which can boost self-confidence. It can also help patients to achieve the look they want while wearing tight-fitting clothes and swimsuits.
The CoolSculpting Treatment Process
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive technology that is different from the traditional surgical methods of losing body fat. This method does not use scalpels or needles; instead, it uses extreme cold to reduce fat pockets, giving the patient a slimmer and fitter body.
During this procedure, the surgeon first places a warming gel pack on the treatment area. This ensures that the superficial skin is protected from the cooling energy. After this, they place a cupped device on the area that is to be treated.
The device first applies medical suction to the region. It then brings down the temperature in the area in order to freeze the lipids in the fat cells. The temperature at which lipids freeze is higher than that of other cells, so the process is safe and does not harm any other tissues in the area.
The procedure usually does not take too long to perform, typically around an hour per treatment area. After the procedure, one may experience common side effects such as mild temporary soreness, redness, and tingling. Time off of work will not be required, and the patient will be able to return to their daily schedule.
The final results of your CoolSculpting may be noticed after two to three months, as the body needs this time to filter out the affected fat cells from the system. Up to 25% volume reduction is typical.
