Do you ever feel frustrated about stubborn fat that refuses to budge despite consistent workouts and meal plans?
If the answer is yes, then it’s time to achieve your ideal beach body with the help of technology. Aesthetic medicine offers safe and effective procedures that can help you address different skin and body concerns.
This summer, body contouring treatments are particularly popular – especially CoolSculpting. If you’re interested in how this works and how it can help you, read on to know more.
What Is CoolSculpting?
A CoolSculpting procedure refers to an innovative and non-invasive fat freezing treatment that targets stubborn areas.
It uses cold temperature to get rid of fat cells located near the skin’s surface without any surgery. This patented cooling technology is also popular because it is capable of freezing and destroying fat cells without harming surrounding tissues in the treatment area.
Moreover, it is FDA-cleared to treat not just the abdomen but also the following:
Flanks (or love handles)
Bra and back fat
Buttock rolls (aka banana rolls)
Inner and outer thighs
What Are the Benefits of CoolSculpting?
If you want a beach body, CoolSculpting can help you. Compared to invasive body contouring treatments, this procedure provides:
Little to no downtime and recovery
Easy and painless procedure
Clinically proven fat loss
Noticeable results within 8 to 12 weeks
Ability to treat multiple areas
However, it’s important to note that CoolSculpting is not a weight loss treatment. This means that you can avail it when you’re already at or within your ideal weight and you just want a better shaped and contoured body.
What Happens During the Treatment Proper?
You won’t have to stay long in the clinic when availing the procedure. CoolSculpting only takes around 35 to 75 minutes depending on the size and number of treatment areas.
To help you prepare prior to your appointment, here’s a quick guide on what to expect during your CoolSculpting treatment in Sedalia, Marshall, or Jefferson City, MO:
Your provider will map out the areas that you want to target.
A protective gel pad will then be placed before applying the applicator.
Once settled into place, you will feel the applicator’s lowering of your tissue temperature as low as -10 degrees celsius. This should feel painless and at most, you will feel discomfort until the tissue in the treated area goes completely numb.
When the treatment is done, your provider will remove the applicator and massage the area and frozen fat to kickstart the elimination of the injured fat cells.
CoolSculpting Aftercare and Maintenance
Your treatment provider will give aftercare instructions which may include applying ice packs to reduce swelling and wearing loose and comfortable clothing.
It’s also recommended to avoid heavy lifting and taking a break from any strenuous activity for at least 3-4 days after the procedure.
As your body eliminates the frozen fat cells over the next months after the treatment, you will begin to notice a slimmer and more toned body.
