Non-invasive body contouring has become a popular way to target stubborn fat. When discussing body contouring, the topic of CoolSculpting® always comes up. CoolSculpting® is the most effective way to target your most challenging body areas without surgery or invasive treatments.
What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive body contouring treatment. It uses controlled cooling to freeze and eliminate unwanted fat cells. This FDA-cleared procedure can treat various body areas, including the abdomen, thighs, flanks, back, and upper arms. CoolSculpting® has become popular as a fast, no-downtime way to shrink stubborn fat.
How Does CoolSculpting® Work?
During a CoolSculpting® treatment, a device is placed on the targeted body area. The applicator lowers the temperature until fat cells begin to freeze and crystallize. This temperature is not low enough to affect the skin or other tissues. The body’s lymphatic system will gradually remove the damaged fat cells for results that appear over a few weeks.
What Makes CoolSculpting® Better Than Other Body Contouring Devices?
CoolSculpting® has earned its reputation as the most popular non-invasive method of fat removal. Several advancements in body contouring technology make CoolSculpting® better than other systems:
Treats More Areas
Most other body contouring treatments are limited to just a few areas. While many can target the abdomen and flanks, only some can treat areas like the thighs and upper arms.CoolSculpting® is cleared to treat nine areas of stubborn fat.
Removes More Fat
Body contouring devices vary in how much fat they remove. CoolSculpting® removes up to 25% of fat from the targeted area with each treatment. A second or third treatment can remove even more fat, making CoolSculpting® the most efficient way to remove targeted fat without surgery.
Fewer Treatment Sessions
Many people see their desired results after just one CoolSculpting® session. Others will benefit from two, and some people may have three. Other body contouring devices typically require multiple sessions to achieve results.
Is There Any Downtime With CoolSculpting®?
People love CoolSculpting® because, among other reasons, it requires no downtime. Unlike surgery, which requires a significant recovery, you can resume your daily activities immediately after the treatment. Some people may experience mild discomfort, swelling, or bruising in the treated area, but these side effects usually resolve within a few days.
Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting®?
Good candidates for CoolSculpting® want to target areas of stubborn body fat. Ideal candidates have reasonable expectations about what a non-invasive treatment can achieve. CoolSculpting® does remove fat but should not be considered a weight loss treatment. The best candidates are close to their goal weight but would like to target a few areas that have not responded to their efforts.
