Previously, if diet and exercise could not eliminate the stubborn fat bulges, a lot of patients are going for liposuction, which is one invasive surgical procedure. They would also turn to radio frequency devices or such infrared technology, but such devices offered limited improvement. Because of the technological advancement, the patients can now reduce those unwanted fat bulges and they get to have permanent reduction in such fat cells on that non-invasive and non-surgical method that is called CoolSculpting and this is surely providing fantastic results.
The CoolSculpting may surely reduce the areas which are hard to reach with exercise and diet and these are the love handles, the upper belly fat, the lower belly fat rolls, the back fat and under bra fat. This is really an effective technique that can improve the contour of your body.
The CoolSculpting does work through a revolutionary technology called cryolipolysis. This is a procedure which can destroy fat through cold induction and the fat cells are actually cooled to such temperature allowing them to be removed or eliminated. Surely, this kind of procedure is safe and the temperature required for such destruction of the fat cells is certainly a lot higher than what could damage the skin, the muscle and nerves. No damage happens in the surrounding structures with CoolSculpting.
In this kind of procedure, the physician is going to apply a skin protecting gel pad on the skin and a CoolSculpting applicator is also positioned on the area to be treated. The device would actually draw such fat bulge and then cool down the fat to allow cryolipolysis and to keep on monitoring the temperature and adjust this when needed.
Unlike liposuction, in which the fat cells would be suctioned outside your body, CoolSculpting treatment actually causes the body to get rid of those fat cells by lymphatic drainage system. Also, the cells are then excreted slowly by the body over a period of the next few months.
With CoolSculpting, the treatment of each fat bulge would take just an hour to do. The love handles may just take two to four hours of treatment and your lower abdomen may take just an hour by using such special bigger applicator. However, each case is quite different and the patient and physician should discuss this prior to the procedure.
Not like liposuction, anesthesia would not be needed. The patient may even use the telephone or the laptop or probably watch a movie or read a certain book. The only discomfort that such patients are going to feel when going for the CoolSculpting is such sensation that something is squeezing or pinching the fat after putting the device on the skin. This will just readily go away in the first five minutes of the procedure.
