The popularity of CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is an increasingly popular
non-invasive method to reduce body fat in multiple different parts of the body.
This is in large part due to it being a relatively quick (usually lasting
between 35 and 60 minutes in total) and comfortable procedure, with little
downtime. In fact, after undergoing
CoolSculpting, most people have found that they were able to continue with
their regular day to day activities such as working or shopping etc. If you’re
currently wondering about the ‘CoolSculpting options near me’ then here is
some useful food for thought to help you make a decision about whether
CoolSculpting is right for you.
The safety of CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting has been rigorously tested
to ensure that it is a safe and gentle treatment. In fact, it is currently the
only FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved non-surgical fat reduction
treatment. This has been the case since 2010 for the treatment of flanks
(sides), since 2012 for the treatment of stomach fat and since 2014 for the
treatment of thighs. Furthermore in 2015, the FDA approved the usage of the
CoolMini, a special applicator for treating smaller pockets of fat.
Clinical trials of CoolSculpting also
demonstrated its safety, as those who were tested demonstrated no abnormalities
How does CoolSculpting work?
The process of CoolSculpting is also
sometimes known as cryolipolysis or ‘fat freezing’. The cryolipolysis process
works by cooling the fat cells in a certain area of the body. These cells that
have been cooled will then crystallise and die over the following weeks,
allowing your body to metabolise and thus dispose of the dead fat cells
naturally. For this reason, CoolSculpting shows noticeable results quickly,
within the first few weeks of treatment. In particular, CoolSculpting works
best at reducing the size of visible bulges of fat on the body which are
resistant to regular methods of healthy eating and exercise.
Be aware though, CoolSculpting is a procedure designed to help you lose fat, not to lose weight. Losing weight entails that the fat cells in your body decrease in size, whilst CoolSculpting is designed to decrease the number of fat cells. Therefore, you will probably weigh a similar amount both before and after your CoolSculpting treatment. However, you will still look thinner and your body will become more contoured and shapely.
After the procedure
After receiving CoolSculpting treatment,
your CoolSculpting practitioner will round off the treatment by giving the
affected area a massage. This massage helps to accelerate the treatment because
it is designed to break down fat cells manually. This massage will last for at
least two minutes, and it will involve both a kneading motion performed on the
skin, as well as a circular massage. These techniques have been reported to
improve the rate at which fat is lost by approximately 60%.
How many procedures should I have done?
There is no set number of CoolSculpting
treatments that you should or should not have, it all depends on the amount of
fat in your targeted areas, as well as your personal goals. To better assess
how much CoolSculpting you would like to have done, it is advisable to have a
consultation before treatment, that way a practitioner can discuss your
questions with you, and answer them all in detail.
