With bathing suit season on the horizon, many women and men are turning to non-invasive procedures like CoolSculpting to eliminate pesky bulges.
As one of the most-requested body contouring treatments, CoolSculpting targets and eradicates unwanted fat with extremely cold temperatures.
However, before signing up for this liposuction alternative, you may be wondering: Does fat freezing work? What are the results? Are they permanent?
Here’s everything you need to know about CoolSculpting, including if it can help you get bikini-ready in time for summer.
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved treatment that removes diet and exercise resistant fat, without incisions, anesthesia, or downtime. During the treatment, a provider will suction fatty tissue into a CoolSculpting applicator–there are currently seven to choose from.
The applicator’s cooling panels transmit a cooling effect to subcutaneous fat cells, causing them to freeze and die.
In the following weeks and months, the destroyed fat cells are metabolized and cleared from the body via the lymphatic system.
For optimal outcomes, some patients may require more than one CoolSculpting treatment. Results can be seen four-to-six weeks after their first fat freezing session and peak around two-to-three months.
Ultimately, CoolSculpting can achieve up to a 25 percent reduction in fat, with a slimmer waistline and considerably less bulging.
Patients are also pleased to note improved proportions and a decrease in clothing size.
CoolSculpting is an excellent non-surgical alternative to liposuction because it provides permanent fat reduction. However, patients should maintain a healthy and stable weight in order to enjoy CoolSculpting benefits for years to come.
It’s not uncommon for women and men to seek CoolSculpting before a big event or vacation. To achieve best results in a timely manner, patients should begin treatment three-to-six months in advance.
