What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is the latest technology of non-surgical and needleless procedure done to achieve your goals in fat reduction. If you’re targeting a more sculpted body, then this is an effective procedure. And if you are the right candidate for the treatment, you will go through a personalized treatment plan with each session being just 35-60 minutes.
Although CoolSculpting fat-reduction procedure is designed specifically for those who would like to get rid of unwanted fat in the targeted areas, it is not a weight-loss solution for people who are obese – the process is tailored for the ones who have noticeable bulges in certain areas they would like to eliminate out from their body. Basically, to get the treatment, you have to be at or near your ideal weight.
How does it actually work?
CoolSculpting mainly focuses on stubborn fat that still exist in the body despite diet and exercise. The technology controls the cooling process that targets and kills only the specific fat cells determined. After few weeks of treatment, the body continues to process and eliminate the dead fat cells naturally, and this process results in a long-term effect, as the treated fat cells are gone for good.
Restrictions, side effects, post-care and results
The CoolSculpting procedure is not for everyone. People who suffer from cryoglobulinemia, cold agglutinin disease as well as paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria are strictly not allowed to try coolsculpting treatment.
Every treatment has its own common as well as rare side effects. As for CoolSculpting treatment, typical temporary side effects include temporary redness, swelling, blanching, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, tenderness, cramping, aching, itching, or skin sensitivity, but these side effects can be resolved within days or weeks.
If you are more concerned about your activities after the treatment, like whether there is a need to take leave from work or avoid any activities that can affect the healing process, you can eliminate your worries. CoolSculpting is regarded as a non-surgical procedure with minimal downtime, which means that anyone who has undergone this treatment can return to normal activities as well as to work on the same day.
The obvious changes done by CoolSculpting can be observed as quickly as within 3 weeks time, but the most dramatic results that you can expect from the treatment is 2 months after that. Nonetheless, your body would continue to flush out fat cells for up to 4-6 months after the treatment, optimizing the results as much as possible.
