Body contouring has come a long way over the years – what once required invasive surgical procedures with lots of downtime can now be achieved with no incisions, no scarring and no lengthy recovery time. CoolSculpting® has made waves through social media for its non-invasive approach to body contouring, but with so many sessions required to achieve desired results, patients are left wondering: Is CoolSculpting® worth it?
What is CoolSculpting®?
Before we get into the nitty-gritty, let’s go over what CoolSculpting® treatments are. CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that uses cutting-edge technology to freeze stubborn pockets of fat in different areas of the body. Because it’s a non-invasive and non-surgical treatment, CoolSculpting® does not require the use of anesthesia, cutting or downtime. Patients simply come in, relax on a table during their 30-minute treatment session, and have the ability to immediately continue their normal daily activities following treatment. You can even watch Netflix during your CoolSculpting® treatment at our office!
How Does CoolSculpting® Work?
CoolSculpting® uses a process called cryolipolysis to freeze targeted pockets of stubborn fat for long-term results. Once the fat in the targeted area is frozen, it is naturally eliminated from the body and is not replaced by new fat cells. Because the fat freezing and elimination process takes anywhere between one and three months to complete, patients won’t be able to see the full results of their CoolSculpting® treatment sessions immediately. CoolSculpting® is more of a transformation process in which patients gradually see improvement over a period of time after a series of treatments.
