While liposuction is an effective technique for eliminating unwanted fat, it is a surgical procedure with downtime and a number of associated risks.
If you want to slim and shape your body, but prefer a non-surgical alternative, CoolSculpting may be an excellent option for you.
In addition, to being completely non-invasive, CoolSculpting offers a host other advantages, which have made it one of the most popular body contouring treatments available.
5 CoolSculpting Benefits You Need to Know About
1. Excellent Safety Profile
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved body contouring treatment that has undergone rigorous testing to demonstrate its safety.
Because it is designed to selectively freeze fat cells, without harming skin or surrounding structures, the treatment has very few side effects and a low rate of complications.
In comparison, liposuction has been known to cause tissue and nerve damage as well as other adverse events.
2. Short Treatment Time
Most CoolSculpting sessions take just 35-60 minutes. Treatment time can be further reduced with DualSculpting, which uses two devices to treat multiple areas at once.
Consequently, patients are able to return to their busy lives quickly and with minimal disruption.
3. Minimal Discomfort
During CoolSculpting, fatty areas are vaccumed into an applicator with cooling panels. Many patients report a mild tugging sensation, followed by a feeling of intense cold.
However, any discomfort subsides within a few minutes, and patients are free to relax, read, watch TV, or work on their laptops.
4. Proven Efficacy
Since earning FDA-approval in 2010, over six million CoolSculpting treatments have been performed. Patients can expect to achieve up to a 25 percent fat reduction in the treatment area and will note that their clothes look and fit better.
5. Permanent Fat Reduction
CoolSculpting causes fat cells to undergo apoptosis (natural cell death), and they are then cleared from the body via the lymphatic system. As a result of this process, fat cells are permanently eliminated and cannot return.
However, CoolSculpting results are best maintained with a nutritious diet and regular exercise.
