Looking for a way to discreetly shed those last stubborn pounds? CoolSculpting® is a way to gradually and naturally reduce the amount of fat in a targeted area. It is completely non-surgical, yet it is highly effective at eliminating those stubborn pockets of fat that have not responded to exercising or dieting. If you have been looking for a way to get your body swim-suit ready, below is more information about this fat reduction treatment and all it can do for you.
How Does Fat Reduction with CoolSculpting® Work?
Unlike other treatments, which simply reduce the size of fat cells or temporarily empty their contents, CoolSculpting® actually kills them off. This happens when the temperature of the cells is reduced to a point where they crystallize. Lucky for us, fat cells are more sensitive to the cold than other tissues and the skin. This means we can “freeze fat” without harming the surrounding area.
Once a fat cell is frozen, it dies off and releases the stubborn fat it has been holding on to. When this happens, your body will simply flush out the fat over time. Rather than dramatic, overnight results, CoolSculpting® gives you gradual, beautiful fat reduction that makes others think your efforts are finally paying off.
Why Is CoolSculpting® so Popular?
This treatment is widely popular with both men and women. There are many reasons to consider this option if you would like to sculpt your body, including:
- Treatments are comfortable, so comfortable that people sometimes doze off!
- There is no downtime afterward – you can immediately resume normal activities
- Results develop in the weeks and months following treatment
- It is well-researched, very safe, and FDA-approved
- Results are permanent – destroyed fat cells do not come back!
How Long Does It Take to See Results with CoolSculpting®?
In most cases, you will begin to notice a reduction in fat two to three weeks after your treatment. Peak results are typically reached after three months, but your body may flush out fat for a full six months. In many cases, a single session of this treatment is enough. If you have multiple treatment areas, however, more than one session may be required. Once you have reached your results, they can be permanent with a healthy lifestyle. While your body will not make new fat cells, the remaining ones will be capable of expanding.
