There are many different kinds of cosmetic treatments available for those who want to get rid of their excess fat. One of the most popular and innovative fat reduction methods available is CoolSculpting. It’s a highly efficient, non-invasive treatment designed to remove fat through the power of cooling technology.

The treatment was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), U.S., in 2012. Over 6 million CoolSculpting treatments are performed worldwide. The procedure is suitable for both men and women, and helps in getting rid of unwanted fat in various areas.

These areas include the abdomen, flanks, inner and outer thighs, chin, and upper arms. Submental fat, that is, excess fat on the chin, can also be eliminated using the CoolSculpting procedure.

How CoolSculpting Works

The CoolSculpting procedure is based on the principle of cryolipolysis. Once the applicator is placed on the desired area of fat removal, it targets the fat cells beneath the skin. The fat cells are frozen using controlled-cooling technology.

After the treatment, your body naturally processes and eliminates the dead fat cells, leading to their permanent removal. The areas that are untreated show no change in their fat cell distribution.

CoolSculpting causes the reduction of fat cells, unlike weight loss, which only reduces their size. After weight loss, the number of fat cells remains the same. After a CoolSculpting treatment, the fat cells are removed entirely, which makes it an effective fat reduction technique. The CoolSculpting procedure is even more effective when it is coupled with a healthy diet and exercise.

CoolSculpting is carried out after consulting a medical professional who has been trained in the procedure. Your doctor will work with you to fully understand your needs and goals to create a plan that suits you specifically. CoolSculpting is not a good weight loss solution for people who are obese. It is primarily geared toward reducing small pockets of stubborn fat.

Why CoolSculpting Is Growing More Popular

CoolSculpting is growing more popular everyday due to the wide array of benefits it offers. It is a safe and non-surgical fat removal method, unlike some other forms of fat reduction. The pain experienced during the treatment is minimal, and the patient can even multitask as the procedure is being carried out.

Some patients check their email, read, watch videos, or even nap during the process. The treatment typically has no downtime, meaning that you can return to your normal routine right after it is completed. CoolSculpting also has the benefit of being relatively fast, and lasts 30 to 60 minutes. No supplements are required after the CoolSculpting treatment.

CoolSculpting does not cause any adverse reactions or post-surgical marks. It is a good option for people who have a healthy weight or have lost a significant amount of weight recently, but still have excess stubborn fat in certain areas of the body.

Chances of bumps on the skin are minimal as well, because the fat cells in a particular area are evenly eliminated. The CoolSculpting treatment was recently awarded “Best Allover Fat Fighter” by NewBeauty. If you are looking to get rid of unwanted fat non-surgically, then CoolSculpting is certainly an option to be considered.
