If you look back at some years from today, you will find very limited options for excess fat removal in your body. Besides the tiresome exercises and awful diets, the other option that was opened for you was liposuction. And that was the last option where you needed to undergo surgery for getting rid of fat.

The advancement of technology has brought in significant changes in medical science. And so, you can have multiple non-surgical options for fat removal. There are tools to melt down frozen fat and get you a slim and trim body without putting any effort!

Now, the question is how and the answer from the professionals in Coolsculpting. Let’s take a tour of the process.

Coolsculpting is one of the most significant non-surgical cryolipolysis treatment that brought in a revolutionary change in aesthetic medicine. Learn about different non-surgical options for fat removal in comparison with Coolsculpting.

  1. Freezing Fat - Years back researchers found out that fat cells could be destroyed by cold temperatures. Coolsculpting was implemented from then in the medical science. During the treatment of Coolsculplting the body was exposed to a very cold temperature where the fat was destroyed in particular areas by a special device. Then the body phased out the destroyed cells progressively.

  2. Power of radiofrequency - Fat cells can also be destroyed by heat. The applicator can heat up the fat in a particular area using radiofrequency energy. But this can be performed without damaging the surrounding skin and tissues.

  3. Laser Technology - Laser fat elimination in some ways is similar to the energy of the radiofrequency. Heat is a common factor for both to destroy fat cells. For laser therapies, a laser is directed at fat cells while the other areas are unscathed.

  4. Injections - Deoxycholic acid can contribute to unwanted fat removal by injecting it. The solution can destroy the fat cells and gradually, the body removes them.

The Treatment Tenure

The non-surgical fat removal alternatives have several ways to remove fat. Therapy can also vary in terms of length. For example, it could take only a couple of minutes for a single treatment with an injectable. In the meantime, it may take 25 to 30 minutes to remove fat with the laser. Coolsculpting takes approximately an hour for a single treatment, but the new developments in the treatment method can reduce the time to 35-45 minutes.

The Areas

Not all non- surgical treatments for fat removal can treat each part of the body. For example, FDA- approved fat reduction injections are currently only available for the chin area. The purpose of these injections is to resolve double chins. Currently, some laser fat removal treatment is only used in the abdomen for stubborn fat deposits.

Coolsculpting can be useful for removing or reducing fat from various body areas. The applicators are designed for various parts of the body regardless of different sizes and shapes. In order to remove or minimize that annoying second chin, Cool Mini is specifically designed for chins only. Additional applicators are intended to be used on the internal or external thighs, abdominals, back and arms.

The results may vary from person to person, as per the physical condition. Non-surgical fat removal treatment professionals can help you understand the kind of results you should expect. Longevity Aesthetic and Laser Spa in OKC is proud to offer these novel treatments to help you look your best.
