Sometimes, stubborn belly fat will not go away no matter what you do. This can be true of arm, back, and neck fat as well. When this is the case, CoolSculpting® may be the best solution for you. This treatment aims to help people lose fat cells, rather than weight, which can have a lifelong impact on how their body looks. During the teen years, the number of fat cells in the body stop changing. That is why it can be so hard to lose weight once you have reached adulthood.
What Is CoolSculpting®?
This procedure is FDA-approved and clinically proven to help people reduce the number of fat cells in their body. It does so by freezing them, which causes them to crystallize and die. Over the course of a few weeks, your body naturally eliminates the dead cells. You also process and get rid of fat. The fact that you then have fewer fat cells is why the results of this procedure are long-term.
The FDA-approval covers using CoolSculpting® on:
- Abdomen and Flank
- Upper Arm
- Underneath the Buttocks
- Bra Fat
- Double Chin
How the Procedure Works
When you come in for a CoolSculpting® consultation, a personalized plan is created to help figure out which fat cells to target. Depending on your personal needs, a number of sessions will be decided on. Multiple sessions may be called for if you want to target more than one area of your body.
The treatment is simple. A cooling gel pad is placed on the areas to be targeted. It will deliver the cooling to the fat cells you want to eliminate, all while you relax. When it is over, you are free to go about your normal daily routine. Since this is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure, there is no downtime afterward.
Typically speaking, you will begin to see results in a matter of weeks. Full results should be visible after a few months. After treatment, your body will continue to work on flushing out dead fat cells for 4 to 6 months.
