Summer is the best time to flaunt the curves you’ve been working so hard for all year-round.
However, if you have yet to achieve your body goals because of stubborn fat, you may want to consider noninvasive body contouring treatments such as CoolSculpting®.
Read on to find out how this can help you achieve your ideal beach body.
What Is CoolSculpting®?
The CoolSculpting® is an FDA-approved, nonsurgical body contouring treatment developed by Allergan that uses “fat freezing” or cryolipolysis technology to reduce stubborn fat.
It targets and freezes fat cells which can result in up to 20-25% fat reduction in the treated area. In fact, it can pinpoint your trouble spots where you would like to reduce fat and bulges.
Unlike other body sculpting treatments that just focus on the stomach area, CoolSculpting® can target 9 different areas of the body, including the following fat deposits:
- Under the chin
- Below the jawline
- Bra fat
- Back fat
- Upper arms
- Underneath the buttocks
How Does CoolSculpting® Work?
For some individuals, the number of their fat cells are already high during childhood and adolescence due to genetics. This makes it difficult to reduce fat cells during adulthood despite consistent exercise and proper diet.
Since fat cells freeze at a temperature that is higher than the surrounding tissues, CoolSculpting® uses this concept to freeze and break down stubborn fat and having the same eliminated from the body via the lymphatic system.
Although it freezes and permanently destroys fat cells, it does not harm the surrounding tissues, unlike in surgical procedures where infections or bleedings can occur.
This makes CoolSculpting® an effective and low-risk option for those who are afraid of going under the knife yet want to see significant results.
Who Is An Ideal Candidate?
CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss treatment. Thus, ideal candidates should already be at or within their ideal weight.
If you already lost weight and you just want to further achieve your beach body, CoolSculpting® may be the perfect solution.
It is also recommended for those with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or less. This is required to ensure that the targeted areas will fit into the CoolSculpting® applicator.
What Should You Expect During the Procedure?
A CoolSculpting® treatment is quick and each session can last between 35 to 75 minutes.
During the treatment with me, you can expect the following:
- I’ll map out the treatment area.
- I’ll lay a protective gel pad over your skin before placing the applicator on the treatment area.
- The applicator will then lower your tissue temperature to –10ºC until your tissue goes numb.
- Once the treatment is complete, I’ll remove the applicator and massage the frozen treatment area to start the elimination of the destroyed fat cells.
If you’re interested in sculpting your beach body, I can help you by creating a customized treatment plan for your specific needs and goals just like what I did for other CoolSculpting® patients in Scottsdale, AZ.
