While CoolSculpting® is still considered a new and innovative procedure, it was first approved by the FDA over 6 years ago! As you may know, CoolSculpting® uses cryolipolysis, a medical treatment that uses freezing methods to destroy fat cells, to reshape your body or sculpt your body’s contours. CoolSculpting® is seen as a successful and safe, non-surgical alternative to liposuction. In fact, it reduces fat in treatment areas by up to 25%! It can reshape your abdomen, “love handles”, “muffin top”, double chin, inner and outer thighs, upper arms, back, and more! All with zero downtime and quick, long lasting results. No wonder CoolSculpting® continues to top the charts in fat reduction therapies.
There have been over 5 million CoolSculpting® procedures performed worldwide and it has become the world’s #1 non-surgical fat reduction treatment used by doctors. Continue reading for the top 5 reasons CoolSculpting® is exploding in popularity this year.
1. CoolSculpting is Quick, Easy, and Pain-Free
Depending on the treatment area, you can expect to be in and out of the office within the hour. The majority of patients tolerate the procedure quite well without the need for numbing agents of any kind. Simply sit back and let the fat freezing begin.
2. CoolSculpting Can Help You Kiss Goodbye Stubborn Fat
One of the defining features of CoolSculpting® is that it targets fat that is typically unresponsive to diet and exercise alone. CoolSculpting® helps sculpt your body in certain areas from the upper arms to inner thighs. It’s a great way to jump-start your weight loss goals or for contouring your final figure. Watch fat melt away as soon as 1-3 months post-treatment.
3. Total Body Contouring
It’s not weight loss; it’s fat loss. The ideal CoolSculpting® candidate is a healthy man or woman who struggles to reduce stubborn bulges. As mentioned earlier, this procedure is FDA-approved to treat a wide range of aesthetic concerns from fat underneath the buttocks (also known as banana roll) to bulges in the abdomen and flanks. You’ll find your clothes fit better, look better, and feel better.
4.No Downtime with CoolSculpting
Since CoolSculpting® is non-surgical and non-invasive, that means there is no downtime to your procedure! Many patients choose to schedule CoolSculpting® during their lunch break or in between running errands. Once you’ve finished undergoing your treatment, you can return to your normal daily activities, even going to workout!
5. CoolSculpting is Long-Lasting
The number of fat cells you have in your body becomes fixed by adulthood. The number of fat cells is specific to you and varies from person to person. When you lose and gain weight, you do not lose and gain fat cells. Rather, your fat cells shrink and expand. CoolSculpting®, using cryolipolysis technology, actually removes fat cells from the body. During treatment, fat cells are frozen, damaged and excreted form the body. Once fat cells are removed from the body, they are gone for good, resulting in long-term fat reduction. Maintaining healthy lifestyle habits can prolong the outcome of your procedure indefinitely.
It’s easy to see why CoolSculpting® continues to grow in popularity across the globe. CoolSculpting® may be a good fit for you in 2019 if you’d like to achieve long-term fat reduction with a simple in-office visit.
