Fat freezing helps in giving the body a better set of contours, and this is accomplished by safely killing fat cells. The CoolSculpting® technique uses a special instrument that exposes fatty tissue to very low temperatures.
CoolSculpting® can be used on various parts of the body, including the thighs, buttocks, flanks and tummy. The procedure is performed in the comfort of our office, and the results are quite long-lasting. We often recommend this procedure to those who aren’t ready for surgical procedures or who are wary of liposuction.
How CoolSculpting® Works
When fat cells are exposed to low temperatures, the heat in the cells rushes to where the cold tissues are located. The trick is to expose the fat cells to cold for a very short period of time so that adjacent tissues are not frozen as well.
In the weeks following the treatment session, the fat cells die. The result is smoother, pleasingly contoured skin and a shapelier figure. Most patients love the results they see after undergoing this non-invasive procedure at our office.
Things to Consider
There’s no special preparation required for the CoolSculpting® treatment. The procedure is considered by most to be very comfortable, but the client will indeed feel a cool numbness in the areas being treated. There is no downtime after this treatment, and most clients report smoother skin and better contour lines in the weeks following their session.
It is important to note that CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss program. With that being said, the fat cells that die are also flushed from the body, and it may take years for these cells to form again in the areas that were treated during the procedure.
Diet and exercise are still the best way to combat weight gain. However, a low-fat diet results in smaller fat cells. It doesn’t get rid of fat cells. Combining CoolSculpting® with diet and exercise can help you to maintain your results for years to come. The fat cells get smaller, and there are fewer of them.
