CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis technology to target fat cells. This noninvasive procedure is effective in reducing fat cells. While it can be dangerous, it doesn’t cause adipose tissue to re-grow. You can experience temporary soreness and firmness, and may experience mild discoloration or swelling. It may cause itchiness or swelling for a few days after the procedure. Fat cells in treated areas will eventually disappear from the body over a period of four to six months. After this time, the fat area will be reduced by around 20%.
CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis technology to target fat cells
With this procedure, a noninvasive applicator delivers controlled cooling to targeted fat cells. The process results in an average of 20% reduction in the thickness of fatty tissue, resulting in a slimmer body contour. The results are visible within two to four months. Patients experience a 20-25% reduction in the fatty areas. Patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the treatment.
It is a non-invasive procedure
Patients can enjoy the benefits of a non-invasive cosmetic treatment while remaining completely comfortable during the procedure. In fact, patients may even read a book or listen to music. Once the procedure is finished, most patients are able to return to normal activities the same day. In most cases, the procedure is complete within one hour. This procedure can be performed anywhere on the body, with little to no downtime.
It can reduce fat cells
After one CoolSculpting treatment, you will notice a noticeable difference in your body’s shape. During the first session, you will feel an intense cold sensation, but this subsides within five to ten minutes. Then, your CoolSculpting treatments will work to destroy fat cells in specific areas. Over time, you will experience a twenty to twenty-five-percent reduction in your fat cells.
It can cause paradoxical adipose hyperplasia
The actress and model, Linda Evangelista, recently sued the company that makes Coolsculpting and ZELTIQ Aesthetics for causing the condition. This lawsuit describes her experience with paradoxical adipose hyperplasia. This condition, which causes fat cells to grow back, is a rare, delayed side effect of the procedure. While the exact cause of this condition is unknown, there are several possible causes, including changes in the metabolism of pre-existing fat cells and signalling mechanisms.
It is a long-term solution for stubborn pockets of fat
Using a cooling device to freeze unwanted fat cells, CoolSculpting can provide a long-term solution to these stubborn areas. Although the procedure is not permanent, patients can expect to see long-lasting results after several treatments. In addition to tackling stubborn pockets of fat, CoolSculpting can also be used to treat the jawline, neck, and under the chin. These areas tend to resist diet and exercise and may benefit from this long-term solution.
