In the past, liposuction was the only way for patients to remove stubborn fat bulges that are resistant to diet and exercise. Today, however, there is an effective, non-surgical solution to unwanted fat that you are sure to appreciate.
It’s called CoolSculpting and can reduce fat layers in stubborn areas using cutting-edge, patented technology. It can be used to treat fat in the inner or outer thighs, lower abdomen, flanks, arms, or underneath the chin. Let’s dive deeper into what CoolSculpting is and how you may benefit from it.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting uses a cutting-edge technique known as selective cryolipolysis to target and reduce excess fat cells safely and efficiently without affecting other tissues. It freezes stubborn fat and reduces it from the body.
During a CoolSculpting treatment, an applicator delivers cooling to the treatment area to specifically target underlying fat. When fat cells are exposed to cold, they die and you enjoy a visible reduction in fat bulges.
CoolSculpting is completely non-invasive and does not involve any needles, surgery, or downtime. If you undergo a CoolSculpting treatment, you can resume your day to day activities immediately afterwards.
If you are at or near your target weight but bothered by stubborn fat deposits that won’t seem to go away, CoolSculpting may be right for you. It’s also an ideal option if you lead a busy life and don’t have the time to commit to a surgery like liposuction and the associated recovery process that comes with it.
It is vital to understand that, because liposuction is considered a more aggressive treatment, it enables more fat to be removed in a single session. CoolSculpting removes less fat per treatment and often requires multiple sessions to deliver optimal results.
Because CoolSculpting and liposuction are two very different treatments, it’s important to consult a cosmetic surgeon to determine which one is the best option for your particular needs and preferences.
