CoolSculpting is taking the nation by (ice) storm. This procedure is a non-invasive alternative to liposuction. In 2010, CoolSculpting became FDA-cleared for the treatment of fat in the thigh, abdomen, and chin. The procedure is quick and patients can expect to resume their daily activities immediately. Learn why the nation is obsessed with this treatment.
How does CoolSculpting work?
CoolSculpting works by suctioning your skin and freezing fat cells through the application of cooling panels. With the most advanced technology on the market, some areas are treated in as little as 35 minutes and discomfort is minimal. Most patients are able to complete work during the procedure or take a nap. CoolSculpting is not meant to replace liposuction, however, it can be used for someone looking for minor body improvements.
When will I see results?
CoolSculpting patients need to exhibit patience while waiting for results. It takes a few treatments to achieve the best result. You’ll start to notice some changes in your body within 3 weeks after your treatment, but major changes can be seen after 2 months.
How long will the results last?
The treatment is not meant to be a massive weight-loss procedure. CoolSculpting is useful for patients who lead a healthy lifestyle and have some areas on their body that don’t change with healthy eating and exercise. To experience the best results, it is suggested that you receive at least two treatments. CoolSculpting can be permanent if you maintain a healthy diet and exercise regime. If you do not change anything related to diet and exercise, you will gain the weight back.
