Do you have stubborn fatty areas you just can’t seem to get rid of, no matter how much dieting and exercising you do? We’ve all been there, and it can be very frustrating. Luckily, your solution to losing your stubborn fat may be with CoolSculpting. This is one of the greatest procedures in fat removal, and it’s been around for many years proving its effectiveness. The revolutionary procedure is non-invasive, and most patients see results a few weeks after being treated. Here are some facts to know about this procedure.
Non-Invasive Fat Freezing Procedure
When most patients hear about a fat-removal procedure, they think of incisions, suction, and needles along with an extensive recovery time. However, any cosmetic dermatologist will tell you that you can get the same or better results, without the invasiveness by opting for a CoolSculpting procedure.
It works by placing an applicator on the target area with a controlled cooling technology that will freeze the fat cells. While the fat cells are exposed to this cooling process, they are freezing and dying. They will then be removed from the body through natural processes.
CoolSculpting Treats Fat in Stubborn Areas
CoolSculpting isn’t designed for people with extensive fat all over the body. Your cosmetic dermatologist will be able to tell you if you’re a good candidate, but the procedure is mainly for people with stubborn fat areas on their chin, thighs, abdomen, back, flank and other similar areas. Fat freezing is designed to act as a supplement to your regular diet and exercise to help tighten up your body.
Permanent Results With Minimal Side Effects
Once you undergo CoolSculpting in San Antonio, the results will be permanent. When the fat cells are frozen and die, they won’t come back. Of course, other fat cells could develop in other areas of the body, but the current fat cells will not return.
In addition to the permanent results of this procedure, there are very minimal side effects, and they are all temporary. Most patients will experience some tenderness, redness, and swelling in the treated area, but the side effects will subside in a short amount of time.
