Previously, if diet and exercise could not eliminate the stubborn fat bulges, a lot of patients are going for liposuction, which is one invasive surgical procedure. They may also go for the radio frequency devices or such infrared technology but such type of device just offers a limited improvement. With such technological advancement, the patients can now reduce the unwanted fat bulges and also get to enjoy such permanent reduction in the fat cells on the non-invasive and non-surgical method which is called CoolSculpting offering excellent results.
CoolSculpting can really minimize those areas that are difficult to reach with diet and exercise and such are the love handles, the lower belly fat rolls, the upper belly fat, the under bra fat as well as the back fat. This is really a very effective technique that would improve the body’s contour.
The CoolSculpting really works through that revolutionary technology which is known as cryolipolysis. With this procedure, meaning cold induced fat destruction, the fat cells are cooled to such temperature that would cause them to be eliminated. This type of procedure is really safe and the temperature that is needed for the destruction of the fat cells is much higher than what may damage the skin, the nerves as well as the muscles. Through CoolSculpting, there is definitely no damage to those surrounding structures.
On the procedure, the physician would apply that skin protecting gel pad on the skin and there is also a CoolSculpting applicator that is positioned on the desired area to be treated. The device would actually draw such fat bulge and then cool down the fat to allow cryolipolysis and to keep on monitoring the temperature and adjust this when needed.
Compared to liposuction, wherein the fat cells would be suctioned outside the body, the CoolSculpting treatment would cause the body to naturally eliminate those fat cells through such lymphatic drainage system. Also, the cells are then excreted slowly by the body over a period of the next few months.
By opting for CoolSculpting, the treatment of each bulge of fat would just take an hour. The love handles can only take 2 to 4 hours of treatment and such lower abdomen would usually take an hour through using that special bigger applicator. But, every case is really different and the physician and patient must discuss this before the procedure.
Unlike the liposuction, anesthesia is not required for this. The patients can also use the telephone or laptop or just read a book or watch movie. The only discomfort which the patients would feel as they undergo CoolSculpting is such sensation of something squeezing or pinching the fat when that device would be applied to the skin. This will just readily go away in the first five minutes of the procedure.
