Most men and women desire to achieve a slimmer physique. Unfortunately, this is easier said than done. It takes time, discipline, patience, effort, and determination to lose weight or achieve the desired body shape. Thankfully, a Non-Surgical Fat Reduction treatment called CoolSculpting exists. Here are the benefits of this procedure:
Targeted Fat Reduction
Fat is accumulated and stored in various areas of the body. Sometimes, these areas are not what you would choose. This is how fat reduction and weight loss differ. Even if you lose weight, you can’t pick the fat your body burns. However, CoolSculpting is meant to target your chosen body areas. The applicator is placed on these areas, offering localized fat reduction. Also, it is ideal for stubborn fat in areas that resist exercise and dieting.
CoolSculpting works by freezing fat cells. The precise cooling does not damage your skin; however, it can kill fat cells. A few weeks after the treatment, your body flushes out all dead cells, producing a sculpted body shape.
CoolSculpting is non-invasive, so it is safer and more effective than surgical fat reduction methods. Although a surgical procedure is performed by a licensed and experienced surgeon, all surgeries have serious risks. Thankfully, CoolSculpting has fewer risks but it has side effects such as redness or numbness in the treated area that tends to disappear quickly. It does not involve the use of anesthesia nor does it cause bleeding.
Many patients avoid liposuction, which is a surgical fat reduction procedure because of scarring. This is because incisions leave scars. And while liposuction scars are small and discreet, you can avoid them when you opt for CoolSculpting. Some people tend to develop prominent scars such as keloids. So, if you have a history of serious or lumpy scarring, CoolSculpting might be a good alternative to surgery.
No Scheduling Concerns
Getting surgical fat reduction means being in the surgical center for hours. Then, you go home and are restricted from doing certain activities as you heal. With liposuction, it can take weeks before you can perform strenuous physical activity again.
However, CoolSculpting takes of these problems. The treatment takes just up to one hour to treat an area. You do not need to miss work for your treatment session. And you can use your phone or read a book during the procedure. Also, CoolSculpting does not involve downtime. Your temporary side effects do not require you to be away from work.
