Many people are surprised to discover that spot reducing fat is only possible with surgical intervention. The weight loss industry has been circulating misinformation for years about how to target stubborn trouble zones. If you have love handles, a double chin, flabby arms or unwanted fat in the lower abdominal area, losing weight will only cause your body to get smaller overall. It will not alter your physical proportions, nor will it allow you to obtain your ideal physique. The good news is that you no longer need a surgical procedure to reach your cosmetic goals. CoolSculpting® is a revolutionary treatment that does not require incisions, tissue removal or downtime. This FDA-approved procedure has helped countless people dramatically reshape their bodies within just a matter of months.
How CoolSculpting® Works
Also called cryogenic lipolysis, CoolSculpting® targets and selectively freezes unwanted fat stores. Once the targeted fat cells have been cooled beyond the freezing point, they’ll die off and be processed and removed by the body. While an actual treatment rarely lasts beyond 35 to 60 minutes, the entire process takes approximately two to three months. There are also rare instances in which people require more than one CoolSculpting® treatment in order to achieve the looks they really want. It’s important to note, however, that CoolSculpting® is recognized as a unique treatment that provides many benefits that other procedures do not.
Why Choose CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® can be an acceptable alternative to liposuction for patients who are not considered suitable candidates for invasive procedures. Given that no incisions will be made throughout the entirety of these treatments, there is no risk of bleeding or clotting issues. Best of all, the treatment does not require any downtime. Patients who choose this treatment can go back to their usual routine immediately.
What to Expect During and After Your CoolSculpting® Treatment
The treatment typically does not take very long to complete. While multiple treatment sessions on a single target area are rare, many people have multiple trouble zones to address. The good news is that it may be possible to have each of these procedures performed during a single office visit.
Ahead of your treatment day, we’ll meet with you to discuss your cosmetic concerns and treatment goals. This will allow us to create a treatment plan specially designed for you. On the actual day of your procedure, an applicator will be placed on the treatment area. This will gradually cool the targeted fat stores to and beyond the freezing point. Throughout this process, you can play games on your phone, read a book or even take a nap. Once all areas have been treated, you will be able to go home.
CoolSculpting® has already provided exceptional results for millions of people around the world, and it can help you, too. The experts at REJÚV esthetics would be happy to help you learn more about this unique treatment. Contact our office in Poplar Bluff to schedule your consultation!
