Do you struggle with stubborn belly or thigh fat that simply will not bulge no matter how much you restrict calories or how many miles you run? You may think that your only options are to find a way to live with this fat for the rest of your life or to undergo surgery to remove these irritating fat cells permanently. However, today there is another option. With CoolSculpting®, you can target stubborn body fat without having to use any needles or anesthesia.
CoolSculpting® is an amazing, non-surgical technique that is precise enough to remove specific areas of fat throughout the body. It can be used on the abdomen, thighs, upper arms, and back. It can sculpt the body and permanently remove fat cells.
CoolSculpting® is similar to liposuction in that once it removes the fat cells, the cells will never again return to the body. Individuals will still be able to gain weight if they do not lead a healthy lifestyle, leading to an enlargement of the fat cells that they already have. However, the body can never create new fat cells.
On the other hand, CoolSculpting® is far different from liposuction in numerous ways. Liposuction requires general anesthesia and multiple incisions. CoolSculpting® only uses a precise applicator that is attached to the desired body part. No incisions are made, and no needles are needed. Instead, the CoolSculpting® applicator uses very cold temperatures to freeze the fat cells. This typically takes less than one hour per body part. Most individuals do not experience discomfort with this, but will feel a sucking sensation and a few moments of coldness.
Some people can see a distinct difference in their bodies before leaving our office. However, most individuals see the greatest results within the months following the CoolSculpting® treatment. The body gradually eliminates the frozen, dead fat cells using natural processes, and the body assumes a more toned and sculpted look.
CoolSculpting® has been proven over several years to be highly effective and safe. In fact, it has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). All that happens to the body during CoolSculpting® is the freezing of the fat cells. No other medications are used, no incisions are made, no downtime is needed and the patient is never put to sleep.
For good reason, CoolSculpting® is the number one non-invasive procedure for targeting stubborn body fat and is used daily around the world.
