In the world of cosmetic treatments, CoolSculpting® is a popular option because of how well it works and how few complications it presents. This is an incredibly safe and also very effective fat removal treatment that has been FDA-approved in the United States for years. However, you may not be familiar with this treatment or understand how it works. Let us tell you more about this amazing fat removal option so that you can see if it might be right for you.
Treat Stubborn Pockets of Fat
CoolSculpting® is not designed as a weight loss method. Instead, it is a great option for permanent fat removal. You should be at or near your goal weight before you begin treatments, and you should definitely be within a healthy BMI. Although you will most likely not notice the number go down on your scale, you should expect to see a big change in your body shape and in how well your clothes fit.
Freeze the Fat Away
Freezing your fat away is exactly how CoolSculpting® works. This is a research-driven treatment that uses very cold temperatures to target your fat cells without harming the surrounding skin cells or other tissues. It uses a process known as cryotherapy, which was first researched in the 1970s. Today, it is used safely and conveniently in many cosmetic treatment offices around the world.
During your treatment, we will place the CoolSculpting® applicator over the problematic area. It will stick to your skin with a light suction. Once we turn the machine on, you will feel the area become very cold. The length of your treatment will vary based on the area being treated and the size of the applicator. However, an average treatment length is between 30 minutes to an hour.
Enjoy Permanent Results
CoolSculpting® is not a quick fix or a temporary solution. Instead, it provides permanent results by freezing your fat cells so that they die. Your body will then get rid of them forever. We encourage you to follow a healthy lifestyle to keep your body looking its best.
While CoolSculpting® is a great solution for many, it might not be right for everyone. How it works on your body will be based on the amount of fat you have, the number of spots that need fat removal and the type of results for which you are looking. The best way to know if this is a good option for you is to meet with one of our qualified and knowledgeable practitioners at Hubbell Dermatology and Aesthetics in Lafayette.
