No matter how much you exercise and properly eat, there always seem to be those problem areas that losing fat from becomes virtually impossible – like those dreadful muffin tops, love handles, and belly pooches. When dieting and exercise aren’t enough, your options become limited to either living with those problem areas or opting for an invasive surgery, but not anymore. Now you can attack those muffin tops, love handles, and belly pooches with CoolSculpting, a non-surgical alternative to liposuction! CoolSculpting uses a unique cooling method to target, cool, and eliminate fat cells. It’s a great, non-invasive way to quickly and effectively get results that exercise and diet alone can’t always achieve.
What happens during CoolSculpting?
During the CoolSculpting procedure you and your doctor will first select the area to be treated. For example, if you’re looking to get that perfect beach body, your goal might be to reduce your love handles. You’ll then be positioned so that the CoolSculpting system can work on your side. The non-invasive suction application, which is similar to a vacuum, will then be attached to your love handle area. The CoolSculpting device draws the tissue up with a firm tug and a pull to break down fat cells by extracting heat, cooling the tissue, and killing the fat cells. After the first procedure, your body starts to go to work, and over the next two to four months, your body will gradually eliminate these fat cells, which will reduce the thickness of the fat layer and make those love handles disappear.
What does CoolSculpting feel like?
CoolSculpting isn’t painful. You will, however, experience a sensation of intense cold, but that subsides quickly as patients are seated comfortably or lying down during the procedure. Many people spend their time during the CoolSculpting procedure reading, working on their laptop, or even taking a nap. CoolSculpting is completely non-invasive meaning you’ll be able to return to your normal day-to-day activities directly after treatment.
So when can you expect to see results? Most patients notice a difference as soon as three weeks after their first treatment, with the most dramatic transformation occurring after two months. Your body will continue flushing fat cells for up to four months. Fat cells are eliminated during CoolSculpting, so as long as you maintain your weight with normal diet and exercise, you can anticipate long-term, stable results and finally say bye-bye to those muffin tops, love handles, and belly pooches forever!
