It’s that time again. Spring is in the air, summer is on the way and it’s time to start thinking about skimpy summer clothing, summer six packs and being bikini ready. I know it can be daunting. Diet and exercise don’t always get the job done no matter how hard we try. I have the same problem. Luckily, these days you have a lot of options to help you shed that stubborn fat. CoolSculpting is one of those options that can help you reduce up to 25 percent of fat in a treatment area without going under the knife.
I know it sounds odd to think about freezing as a way to heat up this summer but CoolSculpting is the ideal, non-invasive alternative to liposuction that can help you shed those unwanted pounds in these treatment areas without any surgery:
- Inner Thigh
- Outer Thigh
This revolutionary in office procedure, which freezes fat, allows you to lose what’s spilling over the top of your bra or pants in a non-surgical way so that you can get back to your busy schedule within a few hours. No down time at all. And during your treatment, you can read, check Facebook, or simply take a nap. That’s why CoolSculpting has become the world’s #1 non-invasive fat-reduction procedure.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
This FDA approved procedure uses different sized rounded paddles to suction your trouble areas and fat cells like a vacuum. The CoolSculpting technology freezes or crystallizes fat cells, which kills those cells. Over time, these dead cells are eliminated from your body through natural processes, showcasing a more sculpted you. This is a great treatment for people in search of better proportions at their current weight, or to drop one or two sizes in clothing.
What Happens During the Procedure?
CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin while leaving the skin itself unaffected. During the procedure, a gel pad is applied to your skin and the CoolSculpting applicator will deliver cooling to the targeted fat. Then a vacuum is used to draw out all of the heat from any treated areas, freezing the fat cells and killing them. You will feel a mild discomfort that people seem to tolerate pretty well. You will experience suction and cooling sensations that eventually go numb.
When Will I See the Results?
Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good. Noticeable results can be seen immediately after one session, but on the average it takes about two to four months before patients will see the full effects of the procedure. Some areas may take more than one treatment to achieve your goals so it is best to start your treatment plan now to be summer ready.
Liposuction or CoolSculpting; which is best for you?
This really depends on what kind of results you are looking for and how much down time you have available. CoolSculpting is for someone who is looking for mild improvements. It’s not designed for one-stop-shop major fat removal like liposuction.
Regardless of which procedure is best for you, make sure you choose a professional who can help you develop a customized treatment plan to help you reshape your body to get the results you want. Your individualized treatment plan should be tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget. Most importantly, enjoy your summer!
