Sometimes even with attention to diet and exercise, it’s tough to get the curves you’re looking for. If you want a new and effective way to get your ideal shape quickly and safely, CoolSculpting could be for you. It’s suitable for both men and women, and can help get rid of excess belly fat, double chins, or problem fat anywhere else on the body. As a procedure it’s safe and well established - in fact, CoolSculpting is an FDA approved, non-surgical way to eliminate even the most stubborn fat. This might be why it’s the world’s most popular non-invasive method for fat reduction, with over 6 million procedures carried out world wide already. Dermatology Jersey City dermatologist office has trained practitioners who can advise and treat patients interested in body contouring using CoolSculpting methods.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical way to reduce unwanted fat. There is no anesthetic necessary, no need to take time off work, and the procedure is painless. CoolSculpting uses controlled cooling to target stubborn fat cells. The cooling method effectively freezes the fat cells, without any damage to surrounding tissue or skin. As the fat cells freeze, they die, and over time your body can remove them naturally. As the fat cells have been totally removed from the body, the Coolsculpting process produces long term results. Body contouring with CoolSculpting leads to a gentle but effective fat loss, even in areas which patients have been unable to impact with diet and exercise.
Is CoolSculpting Right For Me?
CoolSculpting is designed for patients who have fat deposits which they have struggled to shift through diet and exercise. It is not a weight loss treatment, designed for people who are overweight or obese. CoolSculpting can work for you if you have stubborn fat, for example on the belly or abdomen, upper arm, back, or thighs. The procedure is suited to both men and women, and is carried out by trained professionals who are experienced in safe use of this technology. Your consultant can discuss the process with you in full as part of an appointment, to help you assess if the treatment will meet your requirements.
How Does Treatment Work?
Your consultant will partner with you to create a tailored treatment plan, depending on the areas you wish to work on. Each patient is different and as such we prefer to provide a personalized treatment to get the best end results. Your consultant will advice you how many treatments are likely to be necessary to achieve your desired outcome. Once treatment begins, each session is typically from 30 minutes to an hour. You’ll notice results in a couple of weeks, with the most dramatic results visible within 2 months of treatment. Your body will continue to remove the dead fat cells for several months, meaning the results will continue to improve for some time after that.
Side Effects & Recovery
CoolSculpting is not the correct treatment for every patient. It is important to discuss your medical history with your consultant before treatment begins, to make sure you’re a good candidate for the procedure. There are some conditions which make this an unsuitable technique, including cold agglutinin disease and paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. It is also not suitable for people who are obese and looking to achieve weight loss. After treatment it is common to experience some mild side effects such as temporary redness, swelling or tingling. However, these symptoms disappear quickly in most patients. As with any medical procedure there can be some rare side effects which are more concerning - your consultant can discuss these with you at your appointment. In most patients, there is no need for any down time after a treatment - you can return to work the same day.
