CoolSculpting – Cut Fat Without Going Under the Knife

Posted August 12, 2017 in Coolsculpting, Medspa

CoolSculpting is an incredible innovation that allows men and women to virtually eliminate fat without a single incision. It is a Food and Drug Administration-approved procedure that works by freezing fat cells – contouring parts of the body without the need for diet, exercise, or surgery. Choose CoolSculpting for double chin, flanks, inner thigh, abdomen, and other parts of the body that could use a bit of fat reduction. CoolSculpting in Miami is an excellent choice for anyone who wants an affordable fat loss, zero downtime, and fast results.

You may love the idea of Liposuction or a Tummy Tuck, but not have the time or financial resources for a surgical procedure. CoolSculpting can eliminate those last few stubborn pounds that refuse to come off no matter how many sweaty hours you spend at the gym. You’ll have visible results and better body definition with no trace of an incision scar.

CoolSculpting vs. Liposuction

CoolSculpting is ideal for non-invasive elimination of small pockets of visible fat. It is not necessarily the right solution for individuals more than 10 pounds overweight, or those looking for significant weight loss solutions. While the abdominal region is one of the most popular when it comes to stubborn pounds, if you want to get rid of a high volume of fat accumulation, liposuction may be the option for you. If, however, you have smaller areas of fat in the chin, thighs, or elsewhere, CoolSculpting results could be exactly what you seek.

Does CoolSculpting Really Work?

The simple answer – yes. CoolSculpting holds the prestigious title as the #1 non-invasive fat reduction procedure for a reason. More than one million procedures have been performed worldwide. But just because it’s popular, doesn’t mean it’s for everyone. You shouldn’t have a CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from cold agglutinin disease, cryoglobulinemia, or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. The procedure uses special equipment such as ultrasound, cryolipolysis, and cold energy to literally freeze and kill fat cells in your desired area. The devices target stubborn areas of fat that you can’t get rid of with diet and exercise. After freezing, the fat cells will die and your body will recycle them out naturally. While the frozen fat cells are gone forever, CoolSculpting does not prevent new fat cells from developing. You’ll still need to live a healthy lifestyle with regular diet and exercise to maintain your results long term. Don’t worry, though, many patients feel motivated to take better care of themselves once they start to notice the amazing results. Need proof? Check out these before and after photos on our website.

Frequently Asked Questions About CoolSculpting

How much does CoolSculpting cost?

CoolSculpting costs vary, but typically run from $750 to $1,500 per treatment. Depending on the individual, you may need one or two treatments to achieve desired results.

Is DIY CoolSculpting a thing?

No. CoolSculpting at home with ice will not work to freeze your fat cells. CoolSculpting at home will not achieve fat loss. Professional CoolSculpting uses powerful technologies and a special CoolSculpting machine to garner results. Attempting a DIY CoolSculting procedure can be dangerous and definitely requires a trained professional.

Does CoolSculpting have side effects?

Many people feel intense cold sensations, occasional pulling, tugging, or pinching, and cramping. None of these feelings are long-lasting since the area typically goes numb a few minutes into the procedure. You may experience temporary redness, swelling, itching, skin sensitivity, or other mild side effects that usually resolve themselves within a few days or weeks. CoolSculpting is a noninvasive procedure that is safe, effective, and approved by the FDA, but as with any medical procedure, you should consult your physician to ensure CoolSculpting is for you.

What should I expect from CoolSculpting recovery?

The best part about CoolSculpting is that recovery downtime is virtually non-existent. Most patients are able to return to normal activities directly after the procedure. You will start to see results about 2-3 months after treatment, but reach peak results after about two months. Your body will continue to rid itself of the old fat cells for up to 6 months after your procedure. Even if you start seeing results you’re happy with, be sure to schedule a follow-up appointment to review your progress and discuss the next steps. Some patients schedule additional treatments or other procedures to complement their CoolSculpting.
