CoolSculpting® is an FDA-approved, non-invasive method for freezing body fat away. It is a popular alternative to procedures like liposuction due to its ease and long-term results. T
What is CoolSculpting®?
In a CoolSculpting® session, the patient undergoes treatment via a cryolipolysis machine that cools specific areas of their body to freezing points. This freezing treatment destroys the integrity of the fat cells, causing the body to metabolize them naturally, literally freezing fat away. Unlike exercise, which shrinks the size of existing fat cells but rarely destroys them, freezing fat away completely breaks these cells down and causes them to be shed by the body. This process begins immediately; however, patients will continue to see results over a period of months as the body completes the process of ridding itself of those cells.
Why is Freezing Fat Away So Popular?
One of the reasons that cryolipolysis is so popular is that patients can get visible results in as much time as it takes them to go to the gym regularly. CoolSculpting® sessions are convenient and, unlike the gym, the effects are permanent. Not only that, but there is no downtime needed for recovery after sessions. Liposuction and other surgeries can involve invasive procedures and extensive recovery time. Most patients can go to a CoolSculpting® session in the morning and return to work that afternoon.
Freezing fat away also tends to look more natural and leave no scarring or lasting evidence of the procedure. Many past users report that after the treatments, their body fat redistributed more normally as opposed to returning to those problem areas.
Cryolipolysis is most effective when it is used as a way to destroy specific, targeted areas of fat. Generally, these are deposits that the user may have difficulty getting rid of. Patients should still be in generally good health, but another one of the appeals to freezing fat away is that it can be effective for a wide range of people.
