There was a time when fat reduction could only be done with surgery, but thanks to advanced technologies like CoolSculpting, non-invasive fat reduction is now a reality.CoolSculpting is a safe and effective way to eliminate unwanted fat cells for good. But what does it involve, and what are the benefits of CoolSculpting. Element Body Lab
CoolSculpting is a non-invasivefat reduction treatment.It is FDA cleared to reduce fat on the abdomen, flanks, and thighs. It can also be used to reduce back fat, bra fat, andfat bulges in the submental area (under the chin). In addition, CoolSculpting was recently approved for use on the upper arms.
CoolSculpting uses a system of controlled cooling known asCryolipolysis to freeze and destroy the fat cells. The device is able to selectively target the fat cells, without damaging the surrounding skin.
Once the fat cells are destroyed they are eliminated by the body’s own natural elimination process, so the results achieved with CoolSculpting are permanent.
CoolSculpting will eliminate approximately 20-25% of the treated fat. The number of treatments needed varies, depending on your ultimate goal, but some clients achieve their desired results after just one treatment.
Benefits of CoolSculpting
There are several benefits of the CoolSculpting procedure, below are 5 of them.
1. It’s quick
The fact that the CoolSculpting treatment only takes 1 hour to treat an area, is one of the top benefits of the procedure. This makes it a great option for busy people who are always on the go. The short treatment time makes it very convenient, and that’s why many patients opt to have CoolSculpting done in their lunch hour.
2. It’s Non-invasive
CoolSculpting is a completely non-invasive solution, which means there is no anesthesia, needles, or incisions. As a result, there are none of the risks and complications that have come to be associated with surgical fat reduction. There is also no post-procedure swelling, numbness, and pain.
3. It’s Comfortable
CoolSculpting is generally a very comfortable procedure. Most clients pass the time working, reading a book, or even taking a nap. At the start of treatment patients will feel intense cold as the machine settles on the skin, but this will soon subside, and after that there is virtually no pain. However, some patients may experience some pain after the procedure, and this can take several days to subside.
4. It’s Safe
The CoolSculpting procedure was developed based on observations made by scientists at Harvard University, regarding the interaction between cold temperatures and fat cells. The scientists established that fat cells are much more sensitive to cold temperatures than other body cells.CoolSculpting therefore uses safe and proven science. However,in order to ensuresafety, the procedure should only be performed by medical providers that have received the required training using the technology.
5. It’s Effective
CoolSculpting removes the fat cells from the body, so the results achieved are long term. Dieting and exercise will shrink the fat cells, but CoolSculpting gets rid of the fat cells for good.
CoolSculpting is non-invasive, so there is no downtime, andbecause of this clients can return to their normal activities, immediately after treatment. This makes it a good alternative for people who would like to undergo a fat reduction procedure, but are unable to factor in a long recovery time.
The results gained with CoolSculpting look very natural, and some improvement can be seen in as little as 3 weeks. However, final results can take 3 to 6 months to show, as the body takes time to gradually flush the fat cells.
