Body sculpting is a popular option in plastic surgery today, but not every contouring procedure has to involve incisions, anaesthesia and downtime. Now, non-surgical options are available that offer excellent results without discomfort or the need for an extended recovery. At Allure Clinic, we offer CoolSculpting for this purpose, the “cool” way to get the “hot” body you have always wanted.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure that delivers targeted cooling to stubborn pockets of fat that have not responded to diet and exercise. The cooling freezes and destroys fat cells, so that the body can eliminate them through natural processes. Over time, you will see fat deposits melt away, leaving a smoother, leaner body contour in their place.
Who is a Candidate?
CoolSculpting may be recommended for patients that have achieved a healthy weight, but have not been successful in getting rid of isolated fat pockets. Treatment areas for CoolSculpting include:
- Abdomen (muffin tops)
- Hips (saddlebags)
- Inner and outer thighs
- Upper and lower back
- Upper arms (tuckshop lady arms)
Non-Invasive, Comfortable Procedure
The CoolSculpting procedure does not require any anaesthesia and patients report little discomfort during the procedure. At the start, you might feel intense cold at the treatment site, but this will subside quickly. Patients are encouraged to read, answer emails or even nap during the procedure. The majority of CoolSculpting treatments take an hour or less to complete, depending on the size of the treatment area. Patients can return to regular activities as soon as the procedure is over.
Immediate Results, Gradual Improvements
You may begin to see results soon after your CoolSculpting treatment, but those results will also improve over time. Most patients see significant results within 60-120 days after the procedure, as the body gradually flushes out the frozen fat cells. Some patients may see full results after a single CoolSculpting treatment, while others might need an additional session or two to achieve desired results.
Because CoolSculpting eliminates fat cells completely, your results should be permanent. It is important to adhere to a healthy diet and exercise program after your procedure, to ensure remaining fat cells don’t begin to expand. If you decide you want more body contouring in the future, you can schedule another CoolSculpting procedure at any time.
