What Is Coolsculpting And How Can It Benefit You

If you are thinking about getting weight loss or fat reduction treatments, you may be wondering about your various options. One you might not have thought of or heard about before is CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting is an effective treatment that few people have heard about. Get to know some of the important facts about CoolSculpting and the ways it can benefit you. Then, you can better decide if now is the time to schedule your first CoolSculpting treatment appointment. 

What Is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is the name brand for a process known medically as cryolipolisis. The idea is essentially to freeze fat cells so that they are destroyed and disappear from the body. This is done by placing the fat between two panels and cooling it (freezing it). 

This is a non-invasive and non-surgical procedure for removing pockets of fat cells that might not go away otherwise. These are often termed stubborn fat and can occur in the abdomen, thighs, under the buttocks, or even under the chin. All of these areas can be treated with CoolSculpting. 

What Exactly Does CoolSculpting Help With?

If you have recently lost a lot of weight or you are working out and dieting to remain healthy but you just have some pockets of fat that will not go away no matter what you do, then CoolSculpting may be right for you. This is what it helps with the best. It is not a treatment for weight loss but can be an added treatment to a healthy lifestyle and hard work to lose weight. 

As previously mentioned, CoolSculpting can help get rid of unsightly areas of fat tissue in the abdomen, under the buttocks, under the chin, and in the thighs. Back fat can also be reduced using CoolSculpting. Additionally, this treatment can help with the appearance of cellulite in certain areas of the body like the thighs or abdomen (where they most commonly occur). 

How Does a CoolSculpting Appointment Go?

At your first CoolSculpting appointment, you will receive an exam to determine where your trouble areas are and where CoolSculpting will be most effective and appropriate. This will also determine if you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting. If there are multiple areas of trouble, say your abdomen and your thighs, you may need separate treatment sessions for each one. 

When you are ready to begin CoolSculpting treatments, you can expect to spend about an hour (or sometimes more for larger body parts) in your CoolSculpting session. This process should be relatively painless and you should be able to relax during the procedure. If you have multiple areas of trouble or you are dealing with a large body part like the thighs or abdomen, you may need several sessions to see noticeable results. 

Now that you know more about CoolSculpting, you can schedule your initial consultation right away to see if you are a good candidate for this helpful and life-changing procedure.
