What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a device that exposes fat cells to freezing temperatures. It is completely non-surgical. The device comes with several types of applicators, which are placed over the treatment area to emit the cooling temperatures. These applicators are available in various shapes and sizes in order to reduce fat in many areas, including:
- Upper arms
- Under the chin
- Upper Flanks ("bra fat")
- Lower Flanks ("love handles")
- Under the butt cheeks ("banana rolls")
This technique of fat reduction is known as cryolipolysis. The freezing temperatures destroy the selected fat cells without affecting surrounding fat, skin or other tissue. During the months following, your body naturally processes the destroyed fat cells out of your body. Once those cells are gone, they are gone for good. You can of course still gain weight after CoolSculpting, although most patients feel even more motivated to pursue a stable weight once they see their results.
The CoolSculpting Session
Starting at just 35 minutes to treat a single area, some applicators take a bit more time. In some cases, you may require more than one cycle, or you may be treating more than one area. During the session, you should feel comfortable and relaxed. There is no need for general anesthesia. Simply sit back, relax and feel free to read a book, listen to music, watch a movie on your device, check your emails, etc. It is normal to feel mild tingling as your skin gets cold. The device will eventually numb the area with cooling temperatures. You may feel a gentle tug as the cooling panels draw your skin between them.
Because time is required for the body to eliminate the destroyed fat cells, it takes about three weeks for most people to notice the initial results. The most visible results take shape after about three to four months. The destroyed fat cells are gone for good; they can't grow back. You can work to maintain your new contours with a healthy, balanced diet and regular physical activity.
