Cool Sculpting

Amazingly enough there is a procedure now that can just freeze off your fat cells and easily shrink your tummy. It is called CoolSculpting and it is popular with Hollywood celebrities. It’s done with special CoolSculpting tools but it’s not invasive at all. The procedure takes place right on your skin. No cuts or incisions.

You might wondering how CoolSculpting can actually get rid of the fat on your body. Basically, fat cells that are frozen during the CoolSculpting procedure gradually die off and leave the body through the body’s natural elimination process. The results thereby are long-term.
It’s called cryoliposis.

Untreated areas will have no change in fat cell distribution.

CoolSculpting technology uses controlled cooling to target and kill only fat cells. They use a gel pad over the site, and secure the applicator to the targeted area.

CoolSculpting helps you eliminate fat areas and bulges that really bother you. According to their site, for some people, a customized treatment plan may include more than one CoolSculpting treatment. For example, you may want to freeze away fat from your inner and/or outer thighs—and also get rid of that muffin top. Some practices have multiple CoolSculpting systems and can treat different body areas at the same time.

The awesome thing about CoolSculpting is that you lose stubborn fat forever, plus it’s noninvasive. However, there are a just a few drawbacks.

It’s a little uncomfortable.

As the name suggests, the CoolSculpting procedure can be a little chilly. The feeling usually subsides within 5 to 10 minutes as the area numbs. Because most applicators use a vacuum to draw fatty tissue into the applicator cup, you may also feel some pulling, tugging, and/or mild pinching.

After you and your physician select the area(s) to be treated, the device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied. A gel pad and applicator are applied to the targeted area. Vacuum applicators draw the tissue into the applicator cup. The applicators are secured so they can deliver controlled cooling to the targeted fat.

Another downside, you most likely will have to have multiple treatments to achieve the best results. If you are a person who wants instant gratification and you can’t commit to going to various sessions, then this may not work well for you. After that you won’t see results until about 3 weeks and peak at 2 months. So you do have to wait on the total result of the treatment.

And the other drawback is money. The treatments can be rather pricey for people living on a tight budget. I don’t know about you, but if I carefully diet just for a few weeks I can see some fat reduction as well. And it’s free! But it probably is cheaper than liposuction, and less dangerous and invasive, and much less downtime.

You may start to see changes as quickly as 3 weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after 2 months. Your body will still continue to flush out fat cells for up to 4 to 6 months after treatment.
