4 Benefits of CoolSculpting

Traditionally, liposuction has been the primary method to achieve this goal. However, there are now nonsurgical alternatives that are just as effective while significantly reducing your recovery and downtime. One of these solutions is CoolSculpting.

CoolSculpting uses a process called cryolipolysis to freeze fat cells in the treatment region so that they can be eliminated by your body’s natural processes. You’ll experience the following benefits when you choose CoolSculpting to achieve your body contouring goals.

Minimally Invasive Fat Removal Solution

If you prefer to avoid major surgery, CoolSculpting is an excellent option. There is no anesthesia or incisions necessary. Your treatment takes between 35 and 60 minutes. You can resume normal activities right away since there is no downtime associated with this minimally invasive procedure.

Versatile Treatment

CoolSculpting is able to eliminate unwanted fat in a variety of areas, including:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks (“love handles” and “muffin tops”)
  • Back
  • Chin
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Upper arms

Permanent Fat Removal

The fat cells frozen during your CoolSculpting procedure are destroyed and eliminated from your body. Once this occurs, they will never return. In this regard, CoolSculpting delivers permanent fat removal results.

However, it’s important to understand that it’s still possible to gain weight after CoolSculpting. If this happens, the weight will be distributed among your remaining fat cells. In order to maintain your new body contour, you’ll need to live a healthy lifestyle conducive to maintaining a stable weight.

Minimal Discomfort

Unlike surgical procedures, there is very little discomfort associated with CoolSculpting. Most patients experience a cold sensation during treatment and mild redness afterwards. However, you will most likely feel fine shortly after your procedure, and the redness should dissipate within a few days.
