Johns Creek residents are often dismayed to discover that the spot reduction of fat simply isn’t possible. No matter how much you diet or exercise, your physical proportions will always remain the same. Whenever you lose weight, your entire body will become uniformly smaller. As a result, things like love handles and excess fat at the backs of the arms often require professional treatment. CoolSculpting is a revolutionary, non-invasive procedure that can be used to strategically sculpt and streamline the human physique. With this treatment, there are no incisions, there’s no actual tissue removal, and there is absolutely no downtime.
Why CoolSculpting Is Totally Different From Liposuction
With liposuction, a small incision is made in the targeted area and a slender cannula is gently inserted to suction unwanted fat away. Once the liposuction procedure is complete, the patient will return home for several weeks of healing. With CoolSculpting, however, you’ll be back on your feet the very same day of your appointment. Rather than excising excess fat, CoolSculpting freezes it. Best of all, the entire treatment is performed on top of the skin so that no cutting is necessary at all. During this procedure, a small, FDA-approved device is placed on top of the targeted area. Over the course of 45 minutes to an hour, this device cools the unwanted fat to a near freezing temperature. This causes the fat cells to die off, without damaging the overlying skin. With no recovery time, you won’t have to worry about taking time away from work. Moreover, there’s absolutely no risk of scarring.
What Areas Can CoolSculpting Treat?
CoolSculpting is the ideal, fat loss solution for love handles, stubborn, lower belly fat, excess fat at the backs of the arms and inner thighs, and unwanted fat at the back or bra areas. This treatment can even eliminate collections of submental fat, which is the fat that’s responsible for double and triple chins. In some instances, Johns Creek residents can have multiple areas treated at once as part of a single, quick, and incredibly convenient procedure.
How Long Will It Take To See CoolSculpting Results?
Once the treated fat cells have died off, these will be naturally processed and routed out of the body. For some people, noticeable results can be seen within just three to four weeks of treatment. However, the full effects of a CoolSculpting procedure may not manifest for up to six months. Each patient is different. While some patients require just one CoolSculpting procedure, it is not uncommon for people to need several treatments to achieve optimum results. The doctor can help you establish a CoolSculpting plan that’s perfectly in line with your aesthetic goals.
Are You An Acceptable Candidate?
Given that this is a non-invasive treatment, it’s easier to qualify as a CoolSculpting candidate than it is to qualify for any high-risk, surgical procedure. There are, however, certain factors that the doctor will consider before scheduling your treatment. These include the location and amount of excess fat that you want removed, and your history of both invasive and non-invasive, cosmetic treatments. Scheduling a consultation appointment is the first and most important step in determining whether this is the right fat removal procedure for you. Contact us today at Youthtopia Med Spa.
