Best Body Sculpting Treatments
More people are becoming health conscious each year, relying on diet and exercise to achieve the youthful appearance they desire. But what about those stubborn areas where the fat just won’t disappear?
Many are turning to non-invasive fat reduction options, such as Coolsculpting.
What is Coolsculpting?
Coolsculpting is a form of cryolipolysis, which is a nonsurgical fat reduction process that uses extremely cool temperatures to freeze away fat cells in selected areas of the body. This process kills fat cells, which will then be swept away by the body’s lymphatic system, resulting in less overall fat cells in the targeted area. This method can be used for a variety of problem areas such as:
- Love handles and flanks
- Upper and lower abdomen
- Inner and outer arms
- Under the chin
- Back of thighs
Who is Coolsculpting best for?
Coolsculpting is not a replacement for a healthy diet or exercise, and should not be looked to for extreme weight loss. Instead, it is best used for areas of subcutaneous fat that you can easily pinch or grab. Coolsculpting is ideal for people with a normal body mass index (18.5-24.9), who want to focus on sculpting and contouring, not total weight loss. Our medical staff at Skintegrity can help you assess areas of concern and figure out the best plan to eliminate the curves you do not want, and keep the ones you do!
How the Coolsculpting process works
The Coolsculpting procedure is quick, non-invasive, and does not require any local anesthesia. The cool temperatures are used to help numb the area being treated, most people report signs of minor discomfort but no serious pain.
The entire procedure usually takes thirty minutes to an hour, depending on how many areas you are targeting. A vacuum like tool is used to pull the skin into an applicator that slowly cools cells, resulting in the death of fat cells. Fat cells crystallize at a much faster rate than normal cells, therefore surrounding tissue, nerves, and skin are not affected or damaged. After the session, some people have reported minor muscle soreness or feeling like they just got done at the gym, with less than 1% of patients having any extended pain or complications; tenderness, tingling, numbness, etc.
What results to expect from Coolsculpting
On average, Coolsculpting reduces the fat cells in the focus area by 15-20%. Depending on what you are hoping to achieve, it may take more than one session to reach your desired goal, with each session continuing to reduce your fat cell count. Our professionals will help you customize a plan specific to you before any treatment is done.
This process does not offer instant results and can take anywhere from four weeks to six months for you to notice and fully benefit from the procedure. Coolsculpting is highly effective in permanently getting rid of fat cells in targeted areas, however, there is a chance that new fat cells will later form in the same area, especially in people with metabolic conditions or diabetes. In most cases, the new formation of fat cells can be prevented with diet, exercise, and an overall healthy lifestyle.
