4 Little Known Facts about CoolSculpting
For many years, liposuction was the best way to remove stubborn fat from the body and this surgical procedure for fat removal implied that you would have a few weeks downtime. But, this has changed with the discovery of CoolSculpting – a new and less invasive method used to remove unwanted fat in various parts of the body.
With this method, fatty cells are frozen, destroyed and flushed out of the body using natural processes. As you evaluate your suitability for this method of fat removal, the following are some little known facts about the method you should know:
CoolSculpting Can Take Hours
Most surgeons performing CoolSculpting usually claim that the method can take a few minutes and can be performed over a lunch break. Although this is true, it applies only when a single section of the body such as the abdomen is targeted. However, if you are interested in reducing fat in multiple areas on your body, the treatment will likely take longer and may last for up to three hours.
It Comes With Some Discomfort
CoolSculpting is not painful, but the suction caused by the device on the areas being targeted may be a bit uncomfortable. Again, the initial blast of cold on the skin may feel unpleasant for many people, though this is expected to recede or reduce about ten minutes into the treatment.
It is Up to You to Make the Results Last
Once you see the results from CoolSculpting, it is up to you to ensure the results last. Lasting results can be achieved through a healthy diet and exercise. However, if you ignore both diet and exercise, the fat may build up again and you will soon get back to where you started.
Results are Not Instant
Some cosmetic procedures will give instant results, but this is never the case with the CoolSculpting. For you to see significant results, you will have to wait for the body to flush out the dead fat cells on the targeted areas and this process may take up to three months post treatment.
