Sometimes you do everything right, like eat healthy and stay active, but those stubborn love handles or belly pooches just will not disappear. Liposuction or tummy tucks are too extreme and not worth the recovery or scars associated with them for the small amount of fat you're fighting. You might think you'll be stuck with those problem areas forever, but there are options available to help you get rid of that stubborn fat.
One of those options is a non-invasive procedure called CoolSculpting. During this procedure, a machine is used to control cooling technology and freeze your fat cells. The fat cells shrink, then die, and are naturally expelled from the body. Eliminating fat produces a tighter, more sculpted body.
There are a lot of branded procedures out there claiming to work miracles, but not many of them can deliver on the promises made by manufacturers.
Two More Quick Questions
Does CoolSculpting Really Work?
Comprehensive studies have been performed in an attempt to quantify the amount of fat CoolSculpting actually reduces. Using microscopic (histological) analysis of treated tissue, as well as photographs and MRI scans, Scientists have found CoolSculpting to safely produce consistent, noticeable results.
Dr. Fan's CoolSculpting patients, experience a noticeable reduction of fat by about 20% on average.
While results are not immediately evident, the fat cell elimination process begins right away and continues for up to six months after your treatment. You'll start to see physical changes about three weeks after the procedure, and more visible results are evident after about two months.
The treated fat cells will be gone forever, but you'll need to keep up your healthy lifestyle to keep new fat cells from developing.
Compared to other non-invasive fat-reduction treatments, CoolSculpting stands as the gold standard with an impressive 90% market share as of 2015. It's the only fat-reduction treatment that is safe and comfortable while consistently delivering effective results. In comparison, other treatments are either extremely painful or completely ineffective, or in many cases, both.
CoolSculpting involves virtually no risk of damage to the skin or underlying nerves and tissues. That means you have to deal with little to no discomfort, and no anesthesia is needed for the procedure. Each treated area takes about an hour in the office, and patients can resume normal activities immediately.
