Having excess fat in certain areas of your body can have an effect on your self-esteem. Many people suffer from lower confidence and bad body image because of certain stubborn parcels of fat that just won’t go away, no matter how hard they work out or eat healthily.
In the past, one of the only options to remove stubborn fat was to get liposuction, a surgical and invasive procedure that opened patients up to a number of potential side effects. But today, new technologies have emerged that can remove fat without surgery or invasive techniques.
One of these methods is called CoolSculpting, a new treatment we offer at our med spa in Scottsdale, AZ. CoolSculpting is a great way to eliminate fat and achieve body contour perfection.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a method of removing stubborn body fat from different areas to give you the perfect body contouring image. The procedure is safe, has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is only conducted by licensed professionals.
CoolSculpting utilizes controlled cooling techniques (called cryolipolysis) to freeze fat cells. Since fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues, the method can target the cells without damaging other parts of your body.
The procedure is useful for targeting fat in many areas of the body, including the stomach, back, thighs, arms, chin and buttocks.
How does the method work?
During your appointment at a spa in Scottsdale, AZ, your CoolSculpting technician will locate problem areas of fat on your body. Then, they will carefully apply an applicator that acts like a suction hose to the area, applying cooling plates to the designated spot to freeze fat cells.
During this time, the fat cells are cooled, after which they freeze and die. Your body’s lymphatic system will then begin processing the fat naturally, eliminating them from the body. The resulting effect produces a more toned and contoured look.
After CoolSculpting freezes and kills fat cells, those fat cells are gone for good. While new ones can build up over time, the old fat cells will not return, resulting in long-term effects.
Results from the procedure are usually able to be seen after a few weeks, since the body needs time to naturally process and eliminate the fat cells. However, the best results are visible one to three months after the procedure.
Benefits of CoolSculpting
There are many benefits of the CoolSculpting procedure. First, the method is non-surgical and non-invasive. This protects you from the numerous side effects of more invasive procedures like liposuction. The cooling effect can provide a numbing feeling in the area, so you shouldn’t feel much pain at all. You may experience slight swelling, bruising or redness after the procedure, but these effects should fade after a day or two. Otherwise, the procedure is completely harmless and safe!
There is also no downtime alongside the procedure. After your appointment at our med spa in Scottsdale, AZ, you can get back to your day almost immediately.
