Do you feel uncomfortable because of fat bulges in certain areas of your body? CoolSculpting® is an FDA-approved fat reduction procedure.
What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is an FDA-cleared cosmetic procedure that eliminates fats in the areas under the chin, jawline, thighs, and abdomen. CoolSculpting® is also effective for eliminating fats in the back and upper arm.
It is a non-invasive procedure which means that it doesn’t require surgery or any form of anesthetic.
CoolSculpting® works by breaking down fat cells with freezing temperatures. After the procedure, it may take up to five weeks for the fat cells to completely leave the body.
Does CoolSculpting® Have Any Downtime?
A CoolSculpting® procedure typically takes less than an hour. It has no downtime which means that you can drive yourself home after the procedure and resume your regular activities.
How Long Does CoolSculpting® Last?
The degree of fat reduction varies from patient to patient. The temperature cools the skin, which draws in surrounding blood vessels and lymphatic fluid to nourish the tissues below the surface that are damaged by cooling. This process causes a tightening effect on those cells, which may reduce excess fat over time.
The cool sculpting procedure can be repeated on the same or different areas of fat in order to optimize its effects and continue to produce results. A significant reduction is usually observed after a couple of weeks, but it may take up to six months for the full effect to manifest itself. Some CoolSculpting treatments have been shown to produce significant and visible results after just one treatment.
The results last indefinitely because the fat cells destroyed during the procedure never return. However, new fat cells may develop in the treated areas if you gain weight after the procedure.
