For many years, liposuction was the most well-known way to remove unwanted fat in localized areas on the body. Liposuction is an invasive procedure that can have a long recovery time. Today, however, there are many alternatives to liposuction. The CoolSculpting® procedure is gaining in popularity, and for good reason. It makes a great alternative to liposuction. Despite its great success, there are still many people asking if it works.
What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is a state-of-the-art fat reduction system which is non-invasive. This means that during a procedure, you will not endure any surgery or incisions at all. Because this is a non-invasive procedure, there is no set recovery time.
The process is also known as cyolipolysis. Cryolipolysis is a system of using very cold temperatures to destroy fat cells. The lovely part about CoolSculpting® is that although the procedure will remove fat cells, it does not damage any other cells around it. This results in results that look natural.
What Happens During the Treatment?
During a CoolSculpting® procedure, the fatty tissue is placed within the applicator. Then, the machine will begin cooling the fat cells. You will not experience any major discomfort during this part of the procedure. Most patients simply report that the tissues become numb at this point. The instruments will feel cool on your skin.
Since you will experience no incisions or other damage to your tissues, you can expect no recovery time. It should be noted that some patients report soreness in the area of the treatment. This soreness can be comparable to a sore muscle you might experience after physical activity.
Does It Work?
CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive fat removal system that does work. However, because of its non-invasive nature and since every patient is different, results vary based on a number of factors. This procedure is recommended for individuals who do not have huge amounts of fat for removal. The ideal candidate for this procedure is someone who has reached most of their fat loss goals through diet and exercise but needs a little help with that last stubborn bit of fat that clings to specific areas.
