This innovative treatment allows men and women to destroy excess fat cells and get the trimmer, more desirable contours they want without the downsides of cosmetic surgery – like anesthesia, surgical risks, and a lengthy recovery period. Not only that, but the results of CoolSculpting can be long-lasting with a consistent weight and healthy lifestyle. In this week’s blog from the expert providers at Clear Lake Dermatology in Webster and League City, TX, you’ll find answers to frequently asked questions about CoolSculpting nonsurgical body contouring to help you better understand whether this may be the fat reduction treatment you’ve been searching for.
A nonsurgical alternative to liposuction
Liposuction remains a popular choice for reducing excess fat, but many patients do not qualify for – or are not interested in – invasive cosmetic surgery. For those men and women who prefer a more convenient body sculpting treatment that can still produce lasting results, CoolSculpting may be an appropriate treatment. CoolSculpting for fat reduction is completely noninvasive and does not require anesthesia, numbing, incisions, scarring, or downtime.
How does CoolSculpting help you slim down?
CoolSculpting is designed to destroy up to 20 – 25% of fat cells in each treatment area through a controlled cooling process known as cryolipolysis. During a CoolSculpting treatment session, the gel pad and applicator are placed directly on the target treatment area(s). A gentle suction energy pulls fat cells near the skin’s surface, allowing them to be more efficient and completely destroyed. Then, advanced cooling technology reduces the temperature of the fat cells to a specific point at which they are no longer viable. Over the course of the next few weeks and months, the body naturally expels the fat cells, and patients will begin to notice a newly slimmer shape.
Where can CoolSculpting be used?
CoolSculpting can be used almost anywhere on the body where a person is struggling with diet- and exercise-resistant fat, with some of the most popular CoolSculpting treatment areas being:
- Love handles (flanks)
- Upper back
- Bra line back fat
- Upper arms
- Inner thighs
- Outer thighs
- Upper thighs, beneath the buttocks
- Double chin (submental area)
How many CoolSculpting treatments will I need?
The ideal number of CoolSculpting sessions will vary based on the patient’s response to treatment, how much excess fat is present, their diet and lifestyle choices, and other unique factors. On average, most men and women are able to attain their desired level of fat reduction after a series of 1 – 3 CoolSculpting treatments. With a healthy diet and regular exercise thereafter, the long-lasting results of CoolSculpting can truly be life changing.
