Do you ever wish there was a way to get rid of unwanted fat without cuts, anesthesia, or any sort of surgical procedure? That is exactly what CoolSculpting offers — a non-invasive procedure that incorporates cryolipolysis, which is a form of fat reduction. So, how exactly does CoolSculpting work?
In this blog, you can get informed on what CoolSculpting involves, along with the potential side effects and more. Continue reading to learn more!
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting, a form of cryolipolysis, uses freezing temperatures to break down fat cells. This is because cold temperature affects fat cells more than other cells, which means the remaining cells will probably remain unaffected by the temperature. Hence, your skin, the underlying tissue, and the other cells will remain safe while the cold temperature works to freeze the fat cells. This way, your practitioner will help you get rid of the fat cells without surgical procedures.
How CoolSculpting Work
To answer, CoolSculpting works by targeting fat cells under the skin with the help of a precisely low temperature. Once frozen, the fat cells crystallize and die. This method of precisely controlled cooling is known as Cryolipolysis, and it does not harm other tissues. The practitioner will use cooling applicators on gel pads to prevent your skin from freezing. After the designated time, the technician will massage the targeted area to break up the fat cells.
You will not even need any downtime after the CoolSculpting procedure — you can continue with your daily routine right after. This is why CoolSculptingis gaining popularity because you do not have to undergo a painful surgical treatment — an hour or so of the process later, you can expect to continue with your day.
CoolSculpting Treatment Procedure
After consultation with a skilled professional, you can choose the areas to target and determine if you even need this treatment. The doctor will apply the CoolSculpting device to work with targeted cooling and get rid of unwanted fat cells. First, a hollow rectangular piece will be used to pack a bulge of fat cells, which are then frozen. You may feel slight pressure and intense cold, but these sensations fade soon. Although you may experience tugging, pinching, or pulling down to the temperature, the procedure is not essentially painful.
When the doctor removes the device, a block of frozen tissue is left behind. This area will be massaged until it is distributed and returns to a normal shape. Hence, the technician will sculpt your body and get rid of the unwanted fat cells using a cool temperature.
Keep in mind, though, that the outcome of CoolSculpting becomes visible in around three weeks.
Does CoolSculpting Work for Everyone?
As promising as CoolSculpting is, this procedure is not for everyone, and it certainly is not a treatment for obesity. You may opt for this treatment to target areas with fat cells that do not show any difference with diet and other weight loss attempts. Moreover, people with cryoglobulinemia, cold agglutinin disease, and paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria (PCH) should avoid this procedure since it can cause complications.
You should always consult your healthcare provider before seeking these procedures.
