CoolSculpting: What Is Cryolipolysis?
Achieving the perfect body contours, curves, and shape isn’t an easy task, even when following a strict diet and exercising regularly. Some people are lucky and can attain a naturally perfect physique, but most of us need that little extra help to achieve the perfect body contours.
If you are unsure about getting plastic surgery, which can be quite invasive, there are non-invasive body-contouring options available that offer similar results. One such non-invasive technique for body contouring is CoolSculpting.
What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a type of body-contouring technique that freezes fat in trouble areas of the body like the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, and other regions prone to accumulation of fatty deposits.
CoolSculpting is the only non-surgical non-invasive treatment for fat reduction that has been approved and cleared by the FDA (the Food and Drug Administration of the United States). This controlled cooling technique freezes and damages fat cells in stubborn areas of the body that refuse to react or respond to normal dieting and exercising.
What Is Cryolipolysis?
CoolSculpting works using a scientific principle known as cryolipolysis. This is the term for targeting fat cells underneath the skin by freezing them at extremely low temperatures, making the cells die without causing any damage to the surrounding tissues.
Once the fat cells die, the body metabolizes them naturally and rids the body of them, resulting in a more sculpted and contoured appearance for the targeted area.
The best part about CoolSculpting is that once the fat cells are treated and killed, they never grow back. Dieting and exercising only help shrink fat cells but don’t eliminate them, meaning they can enlarge again in the future.
Why Should You Choose CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is very useful for people who have reached their weight-loss plateau and cannot lose any more weight. It provides spot contouring rather than major weight loss. CoolSculpting can give you results that are noticeable, effective, and long-lasting.
The treatment has received plenty of positive reviews and feedback from customers. It has been rated the number-one non-invasive and non-surgical fat treatment in the world.
Many patients have stated that the procedure itself is very comfortable. Patients can relax for the hour that the procedure takes. Typically, they use mobile devices, read, or catch up on sleep.
The technology used is highly advanced and safe, and the controlled cooling devices automatically turn off if they sense the skin is getting too cold. Warming gel pads are placed on the targeted area at the start of the treatment to protect the external skin from the cold temperature.
After the procedure, no downtime or recovery time will be required. This means that patients can immediately return to their daily activities with no time wasted.
