Do you have a healthy weight and exercise regularly, but can’t seem to shake off those fat bulges? You may just need a little help from a new procedure called CoolSculpting™ . This new procedure developed by Zeltiq is able to reduce fat by as much as 20% in the area of your choice
What exactly is CoolSculpting™?
The CoolSculpting™ procedure is based on research, where it was proven that fat cells respond to the effects of cold. If these fat cells get exposed to controlled cooling for some time, fat is removed through an inflammatory process called apoptosis, absorbed through the lymphatic system and finally excreted from the body. The fat then disappears within 2 to 4 months following the treatment.
The benefits of using this procedure include:
- Painless procedure that involves no needles, surgery or downtime
- Since you will be able to work or read, it is very time efficient
- You can expect to see good results with a treatment of 1 to 2 hours
- It’s a safe procedure as the precise cooling affects only targeted fat cells, leaving adjacent tissue unharmed and intact.
- Results can be long lasting if current weight is maintained
What is the procedure like?
CoolSculpting™ is an easy procedure that involves no needles, surgery, or downtime. During the treatment, a non-invasive applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling to the treatment area leaving surface skin tissue unaffected. The device draws the fat bulge up between two cooling panels, which will feel like a firm tug and pull. Although you will get the sensation of an intense cold at the start of the procedure, this feeling soon disappears and you are able to relax. You can either lie down or sit and work on your laptop during the treatment, which lasts between 1 to 2 hours. After the procedure, you can continue with your daily activities as usual, although you may experience some minor bruising or redness in the treated area for a short while.
Which areas are usually treated?
CoolSculpting™ is usually used for those areas where fat is difficult to get rid of. It is especially effective for the tummy, your love handles and back fat bulges.
What kind of results can you expect?
You can expect to see a reduction of about 20% in the fat thickness of the treated area. This result will become apparent about 3 weeks after treatment but even better results can be seen after 2 months. One treatment can be sufficient for your needs but for even more fat loss you may want to get a repeat treatment. Please note that results can only be seen in treated areas, so this is not an all round weight loss strategy. It works best on those who eat healthy and exercise regularly but just can’t seem to shake off excess fat in some problem areas. Results are long-lasting with a healthy diet and regular exercise.
