Do you have stubborn fat lingering around your stomach, back, or buttocks? It’s very common to carry excess fat around the midsection and other areas of the body. While diet and exercise can help you lose weight, many people still carry fat in their problem areas.
CoolSculpting can help you drop this excess fat and get a more contoured figure. This treatment is called “cool sculpting” because it uses fat freezing technology to destroy fat cells and permanently remove them, thus sculpting your figure.
Rejuvenate Med Spa in Oak Brook, IL, offers CoolSculpting and other body contouring treatments that can help clients reach their aesthetic goals. Read on to learn more about CoolSculpting and how it can improve your shape.
What Is “Cool Sculpting”?
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that aims to reduce unwanted fat and create a more contoured figure. It uses intense cooling energy to freeze fat cells and destroy them. This fat is then flushed out of the body through the lymphatic drainage system. The result is a slimmer, more sculpted figure overall.
How Is CoolSculpting Performed?
During a CoolSculpting session, you’ll get to lie down comfortably while one of our providers performs your treatment. The CoolSculpting device will be attached to your desired treatment area, and it will begin to emit deep cooling energy. This energy directly targets fat cells and lowers them to a temperature at which they cannot survive.
Depending on the number of areas being treated, your CoolSculpting session can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. After the session, you will be able to return home and resume normal activity. To achieve optimal results, you may need to return for multiple CoolSculpting sessions spaced several weeks apart.
The Benefits of CoolSculpting
Body contouring procedures like CoolSculpting present a variety of benefits for patients looking to get in better shape. These include the following and more:
The main benefit of CoolSculpting treatment is that it removes unwanted fat. CoolSculpting technology dives deep beneath the surface of the skin to freeze fat cells. This permanently destroys unwanted fat, which is later removed from the body through the lymphatic drainage system.
CoolSculpting technology can be used to remove fat from the following areas of the body:
Removing fat from these stubborn problem areas creates a more flattering figure. Arms and legs appear slimmer, and the midsection is more toned. CoolSculpting can even help enhance underlying muscles by removing the layer of fat that sits on top of them.
When it comes to improving their figure, many people turn to surgical procedures like liposuction or tummy tucks. CoolSculpting can serve as an alternative to these procedures for some patients, giving them a non-invasive way to get in better shape.
While CoolSculpting may not cause significant weight loss or remove excess skin, it can help you achieve a more flattering figure without surgery.
Clients enjoy CoolSculpting because it is completely non-invasive. There are no incisions or sutures involved. You will not be put under any anesthesia for this treatment. Instead, you will be awake throughout your session and able to relax comfortably while we administer treatment.
No Recovery or Downtime
More extensive body sculpting treatments can come with a prolonged recovery period. Most patients need to have downtime to some extent after an invasive procedure. With CoolSculpting, there is no recovery process or downtime required.
After each CoolSculpting session, you’ll be able to return home and resume normal activity. In fact, some clients have a CoolSculpting session during their lunch break and return to work right after.
Who Qualifies for CoolSculpting Treatment?
Anyone struggling with unwanted fat around certain areas of the body could be a good candidate for CoolSculpting treatment. If you have excess fat around your stomach, back, thighs, arms, and buttocks, CoolSculpting may be able to help. CoolSculpting will destroy these fat cells so that they are permanently removed from the body.
It’s important to note that CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure. Unlike weight loss surgery, CoolSculpting cannot be used to remove a significant amount of excess weight. Ideal candidates should be within range of their optimal body weight while carrying a small amount of fat in isolated areas.
CoolSculpting is also not a skin tightening treatment, although some clients do experience tighter skin. It’s very common to have excess skin on the stomach or other areas after moderate weight loss. If you have loose skin around your midsection, we might recommend another procedure in addition to or instead of CoolSculpting.
The only way to confirm that you qualify for CoolSculpting treatment is by having a consultation with an aesthetic medicine provider. We will examine your areas of concern and evaluate excess fat to determine whether you are a candidate for CoolSculpting. If not, we can advise you on any alternative treatments that could be a better fit.
