Are you at or near your ideal body weight and are still unhappy with the overall look of your physique? If so, you certainly aren’t alone. Unfortunately, these natural weight loss methods are incapable of altering your physical proportions. You might be in pursuit of the much-coveted hourglass figure. You may be looking to eliminate a double chin, stubborn love handles, or noticeable deposits of fat at the inner thighs or the backs of your arms. In instances like these, CoolSculpting® at PFRANKMD™ may be able to provide the exact type of contouring you need. With just one to two CoolSculpting® treatments, many people are able to attain the perfectly sculpted bodies that they’ve always wanted.
How CoolSculpting® Works and Why It’s so Popular
CoolSculpting® is an innovative fat removal technique that’s entirely non-surgical. A small cooling device is placed directly on top of the targeted fat stores. This lowers the temperature of unwanted fat to the point of crystallization. Once fat cells crystallize, they die off and are broken down and routed out of the body. As such, the results of these procedures appear gradually over the weeks and months that follow treatment. The effects include an even and natural-looking slimming of the treatment area without any disruption of the skin. CoolSculpting® is ideal for anyone who is eager to avoid the risks and requirements that surgical fat removal invariably entails.
What to Expect during a Fat Freezing Treatment
Because this treatment is non-invasive, there’s no need to take any significant amount of time off from work. In fact, many patients are able to resume their regular activities immediately after their procedures. A single cooling device will be placed on the targeted area for approximately 30 minutes to an hour. It’s not uncommon for people to read, work on their laptops or watch movies on their phones during this process. Given that fat freezes at a significantly higher temperature than skin, it will be possible to destroy the unwanted fat cells without causing any damages to the overlying tissues. Moreover, while diet and exercise merely shrink fat cells, CoolSculpting® has the power to destroy and eliminate these cells permanently.
Downtime and Aftercare with CoolSculpting®
Unlike liposuction and other surgical, lipo-sculpting procedures, CoolSculpting® does not require any special aftercare or recovery time. Once your procedure is done, you’ll be able to immediately resume your normal activities. Some people experience a moderate amount of redness and hardening of the treated area, but these developments are mild and usually dissipate within just a matter of hours.
