While fat can be lost through healthy habits like a good diet and regular exercise, people are unable to control the exact locations that will see a reduction. This can result in being fit in some places while suffering areas of unwanted fat in others. Fortunately, CoolSculpting can help.
CoolSculpting is a safe, non-invasive procedure approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) designed to reduce fat in certain targeted spots on the body. Taking advantage of the fact that fat cells are particularly sensitive to the cold, this procedure uses a method known as cryolipolysis to break down the fat cells with freezing temperatures. Other cells in the body are not harmed because they are not affected by cold.
Unlike liposuction, which is a surgical procedure that requires anesthesia and downtime to recover, CoolSculpting is quick and easy. The treatment can help both men and women and can be used in a variety of areas. These include the belly, the back, the sides, the thighs, the upper arm, and under the butt. Under the chin and jawline remove jawline can also be treated.
The procedure itself involves attaching the CoolSculpting applicator to the identified problem area with a strap. Suction softly takes the skin into the applicator where it encounters the freezing temperatures that affect the fat cells. Usually it takes approximately 30 minutes or less. This procedure take less than an hour per cycle.
The process of freezing changes the structural integrity of the fat cells resulting in the release of the fat. Massaging of the area can also aid in this process. Over a period of 1-4 months, the fat cells are processed through the lymphatic system. Typically the procedure results in a 20 percent decrease in the amount of fat.
