What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical way to freeze away that fat. People no longer need to resort to invasive surgeries with long recovery times to get the look they desire because this incredible technology crystallizes fat cells which are then flushed away over time by the body’s own metabolic processes. With Coolsculpting, a typical treatment lasts about one hour per treatment area. There is even better news because many physicians offer Dual-Sculpting which is the use of two CoolSculpting devices at once. This allows for two areas to be treated at the same time in one session. The use of Dual-Sculpting cuts the patients’ individual treatment time in half. Additionally, because there is no downtime with these treatments, patients can schedule their visit and immediately go about their daily routines. Some patients have reported redness, slight tenderness, and swelling at the treatment site, but this is completely normal and disappears after about two weeks.
How Does CoolSculpting Reduce Fat?
During a typical treatment, a technician places a gel pad over the area to be treated to act as a barrier between your body and the CoolSculpting device. Next, the device is cooled to its appropriate temperature and placed on the gel pad. The fat underneath the pad freezes, but not any of the surrounding organs, nerves or tissue since they freeze at a much lower temperature than the fat cells. The CoolSculpting procedure is closely monitored during the entire treatment making it both safe and effective. Once the fat cells have been frozen, they will die and be consumed by regular cells. Through the body’s natural processes, the dead cells are eliminated from the body.
