How Is CoolSculpting Done And What Should You Expect
Sometimes a simple observation leads to a great innovation. Around a decade ago, some Harvard University and Massachusetts General Hospital scientists observed that kids get dimpled after sucking on popsicles. Turns out, the popsicles froze and eliminated small pockets of their cheek fat. And basically, It’s the rather simple explanation to the common question: how is Coolsculpting done.
This popsicle observation led to the idea that we can target specific fat cells for removal without causing any damage to surrounding cells and tissue. In more technical terms, the scientists invented selective Cryolipolysis which was them developed by Zeltiq to become the body contouring procedure known as CoolSculpting. But how exactly does the CoolSculpting procedure work?
CoolSculpting: Is It For You?
Who is the ideal candidate for a CoolSculpting procedure? The procedure works perfectly for both males and females. The most targeted parts include the flanks, chin, inner and outer thighs, the abdomen, and upper arms.
The procedure works best for those within 30lb of their ideal weight. This is because CoolSculpting is a body contouring service rather than a weight loss program. It’s designed to work on those pesky fat pockets in unwanted target areas, and not as a solution for obesity and excess weight.
If you are reasonably fit and want to get rid of a noticeable bulge in a particular area, then CoolSculpting might be your answer.
How Is CoolSculpting Done: The CoolSculpting Process
Once your doctor and dermatologist confirm that you’re a qualified candidate, prepare for a 30-60 minute treatment session. The procedure is 100% safe and is FDA-approved. It’s non-surgical and non-invasive, so sit back, relax, and let your doctor or clinician handle everything.
- Your CoolSculpting expert begins treatment by using gels and an applicator in the target area.
- The applicator delivers cold temperatures of 4 degrees Celsius.
- The applicator freezes and permanently damages fat cells without harming blood, body water, and other cells.
- The applicator has a suction effect that may cause some mild pinching and tugging. The freezing will also cause some numbing.
- Your clinician may apply some balm to ease the numbing and discomfort after the procedure.
The CoolSculpting technology produces results that have been backed up by more than 70 clinical journal papers, scientific papers, and technical reports.
In the weeks following treatment, these damaged fat cells will die and the body will naturally eliminate them. These fat cells will never regrow, never be replaced by other fat cells in the same area, and will not settle in another area of your body. They are gone for good.
The untreated areas will maintain their pre-treatment fat cell distribution. The treated areas will over the next 3 months show a significant reduction in fat cells. You will notice desired changes as early as 14 days after treatment, but it is from the 8-week mark that dramatic results will be conspicuous.
Since CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure, you can return to your normal functions immediately. No pain medications or bed rest periods are necessary.
