When some people first hear about CoolSculpting®, the idea of being able to freeze away fat may sound like it is just too good to be true. We are here to tell you that it is a reality. And it is a reality that could help you get rid of stubborn pockets of fat on your body.
How CoolSculpting® Works
The amazing thing about getting rid of unwanted fat is that the fat cells can be brought down to just the right temperature where they are negatively affected by the intense cold, but everything else is left unharmed. If the fat cells are exposed to the intense cold for a set period of time, they will freeze. When they freeze, they die. The body naturally flushes out the dead fat cells in the weeks that follow the treatment.
CoolSculpting® treatment is able to be performed without making any incisions. It is completely non-invasive. You will feel an intense cool sensation when the treatment begins. However, just minutes after the device is turned on, your skin will become numb. This means that you can comfortably sit through the session without experiencing any uncomfortable symptoms.
Since this is a non-invasive treatment, there is no downtime associated with it. You can visit us and have a CoolSculpting® treatment performed and then get back to your normal routine. You do not need to take any time off afterward. We may give you instructions on how you can do simple things following the treatment in order to get better results, like up your exercise game and drink more water. However, there is usually no major aftercare involved.
It is going to take time for your body to flush away the cells that have been frozen. This means that you are not going to walk away any slimmer than when you first came through our door. It is good for people to have a realistic idea of what the treatment will do for them.
Is CoolSculpting® Right for You?
There are certain requirements that individuals will need to meet in order to have this treatment performed. The person will need to have enough fat to be treated while also being at or very close to their ideal weight.
