If you are considering a cosmetic procedure to gain a little tone in the belly, lose your bludging love handles or slim down your thighs, but are hesitant do go under the knife then you need to check out CoolSculpting. No needles, no scalpel, no scar, no anaesthetic and the fat is permanently gone!
CoolSculpting has become a popular alternative to the more invasive treatments such as liposuction to remove unwanted fat. Created by two Harvard doctors, CoolSculpting is a process where a device freezes the fat cells below the skin. Under this intense cooling technique cells are crystallised and die before being naturally broken down and removed by the body.As fat cells are uniquely sensitive to the cold, those in the targeted areas such as your waist, tummy, thighs, back or arms are permanently destroyed during the treatment!
Giving liposuction a run for its money
Unlike liposuction or a tummy tuck where you are required to go under anaesthetic and endure a period of recovery, CoolSculpting can produce noticeable results after just one one-hour treatment. In a liposuction procedure patients can expect some mild discomfort, bruising and possibly swelling. Your body needs time to heal after undergoing surgery and there will be a period of recovery time before you can get back to your day-to-day activities and regular fitness regime. The CoolSculpting procedure is truly a ‘lunch time’ treatment. You can return to work, hit the gym and go about your day as per usual immediately after you leave the clinic.
The CoolSculpting applicator is applied directly to the targeted area such as your love handles. As it works, it sucks your skin into the machine and begins the freezing process. All you will feel is the skin becoming slightly cold before it becomes numb and works on killing off unwanted fat cells. You will be comfortable enough to enjoy a book, listen to some music, update your status on Facebook or even take a nap!
Is CoolSculpting right for me?
CoolSculpting is the perfect treatment option for those with a little extra fat they can’t shift. You may have lost weight with a change of diet and regular exercise, but still haven’t achieved that bikini fab tummy or have some healthy love handles creeping out the top of your jeans.
While CoolSculpting is a great option to tone and shape specific areas, it will not provide the overly dramatic results you may receive through a more invasive procedure. Therefore is not as suitable for those who are obese or to use as a weight lose tool.
Will the fat be gone forever?
The fat of your muffin top will be destroyed during the freezing process forever! Following the treatments you will continue to notice the results as the fat continues to shrink and be removed from the body. So that pesky fat you have been trying to remove by completing sit ups every morning will gone for good. Keep in mind though, if you continue to devour doughnuts and stop hitting the gym, new fat cells can develop!
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure which can literally melt the fat away from areas you are not quite satisfied with in a simple ‘lunch time’ treatment. If you are not up for full blown cosmetic surgery procedure, this could the treatment for you.
