CoolSculpting: What Makes It So Unique?
- Posted on: Mar 15 2016
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure that invovles freezing fat cells in order to provide patients with a slimmer looking body and appearance. As an alternative treatment to things like liposuction, CoolSculpting is making ways in the plastic surgery field as an innovative and smart way to treat stubborn fat areas. What exactly about CoolSculpting makes this procedure so unique?
Not For Weight Loss
Many patients assume that CoolSculpting will help them step on the scale and see the numbers drop significantly over time. However, just as with liposuction, CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure. Rather, CoolSculpting is used to target stubborn areas of fat in healthy individuals— like the upper thighs, abdomen, and arms— that you just can’t seem to get rid of.
It Is Naturally Metabolized
One of the most unique components of CoolSculpting is the way in which the fat is excreted. About two to four months after your first CoolSculpting procedure— and depending on your metabolism and body type— your body will naturally metabolize the fat and excrete it through your urine. Sound painful? Have no fear, you won’t feel a thing or notice anything in your urine. You will, however, notice a slimmer looking you.
It is Pain Free
As a non-invasive procedure, CoolSculpting is also pain free as well. Meaning that if you are somebody— like most people— who are scared of going under the knife due to the pain that you might feel or just the fear of anesthesia yourself, you won’t have anything to worry about CoolSculpting. In fact, the CoolSculpting procedure itself will just be a little uncomfortable if anything at all. Also, because CoolSculpting is non-invasive and pain-free you can head back to work or to your daily activities directly after your procedure.
It Is Permanent
Unlike some cosmetic procedures like facial fillers or injections, CoolSculpting is a permanent procedure. However, just because you got rid of those stubborn fat cells, doesn’t mean that you can give up on exercise and take on a fast food diet, because the fat will come back.
