As time passes, the aging process often makes it much more difficult to maintain a good figure. You may have worked out at the gym for hours every week for months while consuming a healthy and nutritious diet. Despite this, you may have been unable to get rid of stubborn fat pockets. Despite all your efforts, the pockets of fat remain. Unfortunately, this scenario is fairly common, and you are not alone. In the past, the only way to contour your figure was by having surgery. You may not be willing to have surgery due to the potential risks and complications in addition to a period of downtime while you recover. Due to new technology, there is now a way to sculpt your body without surgery. The treatment is called CoolSculpting®. This is an excellent option to shape your body the way you desire. Check our more information about the benefits of Coolsculpting as you go along.
The procedure is effective, simple and one of the best options for removing stubborn pockets of fat. There is no anesthesia, needles or surgery necessary. In just one session, you can eliminate a lot of your stubborn fat cells almost instantly. This treatment is effective, revolutionary, does not cause discomfort and has no downtime. The CoolSculpting® process was developed by scientists from Harvard. The procedure is based on the science of cryolipolysis. Your fat cells are frozen and damaged beyond repair. It is important to understand that the temperature is cold enough to kill your fat cells without causing any damage to your surrounding tissue. There is no harm caused to your skin or your tissue during this treatment. Once your fat cells are dead, the natural processes of your body will eliminate them, leaving you with better contours.
This is not a treatment to lose weight. This process is meant for fat reduction only. Understanding the difference between the two is extremely important. The major difference is when you lose weight, your fat cells will shrink. The fat cells will not be completely eliminated. The reason you lose weight is because your fat cells have gotten smaller. Fat reduction completely eliminates the stubborn fat cells in the areas you choose. Once your fat cells have been eliminated, they are unable to return. They have not shrunk; they are gone. This means the treatment is an excellent solution for the longer term. This procedure will not replace a healthy diet or enable you to miraculously lose 100 pounds. This is meant to be a non-invasive, non-surgical way to target the fat cells in certain areas of your body such as your abdomen, arms or thighs.
One of the best benefits of this treatment is that most people do not have any downtime. Since the procedure does not require surgery, once you have completed your treatment, you can go right back to what you were doing prior to your appointment. You do not have to be concerned about being unable to fulfill your daily responsibilities. The time required for your treatment will depend on which part of your body you are having treated and other factors. Your results are designed to be permanent. A lot of people have additional sessions because they want to get rid of even more pockets of fat. If you are having your abdomen treated, you will most likely need more than one session.
You can have this treatment on numerous parts of your body that contain stubborn fat pockets. Most people find that once they have gotten rid of the excess fat, their quality of life improves. This is because when you have better contours, you are happier with your body. This will increase your confidence level. CoolSculpting® is the only method of body contouring where fat cells are frozen prior to being removed from the body that is cleared by the FDA.

A good candidate for this treatment is at or very close to their ideal weight, interested in eliminating stubborn fat and wants a more sculpted body. This is a good option for a smoother and slimmer figure. This procedure is different from invasive techniques such as liposuction because it eliminates specific fat cells as opposed to just removing a lot of fat from the body. Liposuction will not kill the fat cells. The best place to begin is by having a consultation with a medical professional to ensure you are a good candidate for the treatment. You will also be able to ask whatever questions you may have. Your actual procedure will take place in the office of the medical professional. The procedure is comfortable, and you will be able to relax.
During the treatment, a special applicator provides a combination of intense cooling and vacuum pressure. This will reach deeply enough to freeze your fat cells in the targeted area. During your treatment, you can watch your favorite videos on your tablet or smartphone, read an interesting book or simply take a little nap. You can even schedule your procedure during a break from your daily activities to save time and add more convenience. When you complete your session, you will know you have taken an important step towards a more sculpted and trimmer body. The reason there is no downtime is because this is a non-invasive procedure. The majority of the more invasive treatments have a substantial period of downtime.
The majority of individuals who have experienced this treatment see a difference in the way they look within just weeks after having the procedure. As time passes, your results will continue to improve. Within months, you will see your optimal results including better contours and a new shape. A lot of individuals make this treatment sound complicated when the basics are simple. CoolSculpting® simply decreases the stubborn fat that you have been unable to lose by exercising and following a sensible diet. The cooling technology is non-invasive and will freeze your fat cells. Once these cells break down due to the freezing process, they will be eliminated naturally by your body.
This treatment was cleared by the FDA in the United States for treating the thighs, abdomen, submandibular and submental areas, flanks, upper arms, love handles, double chin, buttocks, back and bra area. The medical professional can choose from a variety of different applicators to effectively remove fat from the area selected for treatment.
Do not think of this procedure as a way to lose weight. This treatment was designed to remove the stubborn fat you were unable to lose through exercising and dieting alone. This is an excellent option for removing deposits of fat on your stomach or thighs with a procedure that is both non-invasive and effective.
