Many people suffer from unsightly fat bulges. Not only can excess fat make it difficult to find flattering clothing, it can also put you at risk for certain conditions like type 2 diabetes and heart disease. When diet and exercise alone are not cutting it, there’s another option – and fortunately, it’s not liposuction.
Coolsculpting is a fat freezing treatment that uses controlled cooling technology to eliminate stubborn fat under the skin. Coolsculpting was cleared by the US FDA in 2010. The physicians who created the treatment discovered that fat cells break down more effectively than regular cells when exposed to cold temperature. This non-surgical procedure has been proven effective in removing excess fat in the flanks, thigh, back, abdomen, buttock, and chin area.
How Coolsculpting Procedure Works
The Coolsculpting procedure involves the use of different applicators in various sizes to fit different areas of concerns. Among the different types of applicators include Coolmini, a small applicator for the chin and CoolMax, a bigger one for a large volume reduction in the belly area.
A safety gel will be placed in the area of concern followed by the applicator wherein it gently suctions the fat bulge. Once the procedure starts, the treated area will be exposed to controlled cooling which destroys the fat cells and begins a process of natural removal in the body which also reduces the thickness of the fat layer.
During the procedure, you will be asked to sit in a comfortable chair as the cooling panels work to crystalize your fat cells. The non-invasive fat reduction treatment is only mildly uncomfortable before the cooling sensations eventually cause the area to go numb. The procedure is fairly relaxed and most patients are able to nap, work on a laptop, or even watch a movie as they wait for the procedure to take effect.
Recovery and Results
Once your fat cells have been crystalized, they die and are naturally eliminated from the body for good. The treated fat cells do not return. Following the procedure, some mild side effects can occur, such as temporary swelling, redness, firmness, bruising, stinging, itching, tenderness, or skin sensitivity.
However, as Cool sculpting is non-surgical, you can return to your normal activities immediately. The results of the procedure are typically visible as soon as three weeks following the treatment. Within two months, you will start to see more dramatic results. The body will continue to flush fat cells for 4 to 6 months.
Beware of fake or imitation fat freezing machines that can cause burns due to incorrect temperature calibrations.
