Are you tired of looking down and seeing that stomach pooch? Even those who are in the best of health can have a stomach pooch – that little bit of fat that sticks out from the abdomen that won’t go away no matter what you try. That’s where CoolSculpting comes in!
How does CoolSculpting work?
CoolSculpting is a quick, noninvasive procedure. A cooling device is moved across the skin, which freezes fat cells. These cells die and naturally and harmlessly leave the body. It may take weeks for the body to get rid of these cells – because of this it might take a couple of weeks before you start to see the results you want – but once they are gone they are gone for good.
This procedure is for those who have already lost a lot of weight – it is meant to sculpt and tone one particular area. It is not meant for people who still have a lot of weight to lose.
What are the benefits of CoolSculpting?
There are many reasons why CoolSculpting is becoming so popular. Unlike liposuction, which is also used to remove fat and tone the body, no incisions or anesthesia are needed, and you don’t have to deal with the swelling or bruising that can come with liposuction. CoolSculpting is safe and has been approved by the FDA. The procedure is quick and shouldn’t take more than a couple of hours, although you may need more than one session, depending on how much fat you would like to lose.
There is no downtime with CoolSculpting; you can return to your regular activities as soon as you leave your doctor’s office. There is no pain with the procedure – most patients report, at most, discomfort, which can be treated with an over-the-counter pain medication. Yet another benefit is that the results from CoolSculpting are permanent. However, you can still always gain weight back! Make sure that you eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly.
