CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure for reducing the fat without anesthesia, needles or incisions. The fatty cells are destroyed in the refreshing process and are absorbed by the body on the basis of the principle of cooling subcutaneous fat. The fat layer underneath the skin is subcutaneous fat.
The science of cryolipolysis that uses cold cellular reaction to break down the fatty tissue is used in cool sculpting. The process causes the cells to die gradually by extracting energy from fatty layers when the nerves, tissues and muscles surrounding them remain not impacted. The fat cells are sent to the lymphatic system for waste filtering over the months following treatment.
The procedure is carried out via a handheld device by a physician or trained health care provider. The device has applicators that look like the vacuum cleaners nozzles.
During the treatment, a gel pad and an applicator are used by the healthcare provider. The applicator provides the targeted fat with controlled cooling. During administration of suction and cooling technology, the provider will then move the device over the skin. Some offices have multiple machines to handle multiple target areas in one visit.
Targeted Treatment Areas
For certain areas of the body, CoolSculpting is FDA approved. The fat pocket underneath the chin (double chin), top arms, abdomen, back fat, hips, flanks, thighs.
CoolSculpting is designed as a treatment area in the list of treatable areas to treat small to medium pockets of fat that have been highly stubborn. It is actually intended to sculpt your body according to the name of the treatment and will not help you with weight loss.
How Does It Feel?
After having a consultation and being approved as a CoolSculpting candidate, let the treatment begin.
The patient is positioned comfortably at the time of treatment in the reclining chair or table and the CoolSculptingapplicator is applied to the fat target area. The skin and fat is then sucked between two metal plates and the temperature drops. In the initial pulling, pinching and perhaps discomfort occur, but this stops once the area refreshes. In the next 35 minutes or so, the patient can read and watch TV. The area is stiff and frozen as a stick of frozen butter when the applicator is removed. The technician for Coolsculpting massages the area of the firm and moves the applicator to the new site.
What Is the Difference? Sculpsure Versus Coolsculpting:
While CoolSculpting freezes fat to destroy fat cells, by applying heat into the area SculpSure adopts the exact opposite approach. Like CoolSculpting, the SculpSure targets and reduces stubborn fat without being invasive, non-surgical and the FDA-approved. An applicator is applied to the targeted area and lasers emit fat cell death (typically 25 minutes). With CoolSculpting, full results from SculpSure takes about 12 weeks.
In addition, CoolSculpting and SculpSure, both of them, are very similar in terms of ideal candidates, costs and overall results. There are a few things to consider when you try to decide between CoolSculpting and SculpSure. Firstly, since the skin has been heated, SculpSure is probably less comfortable. The discomfort usually decreases after five minutes with CoolSculpting because the treated area becomes addictive.
It should also be remembered that SculpSure was approved by the FDA in 2016, and so it was not so long before CoolSculpting was approved by the FDA in 2010.
