Body contouring has forever changed the world of body sculpting. As a method of body contouring, CoolSculpting triggers your body to shed fat cells without undergoing surgery or liposuction. The fat cells are destroyed by controlled cooling, leaving the surrounding tissues healthy and unharmed. You can achieve a more attractive body contour without anesthetic, surgery, incisions, or scars – and with zero recovery time.
Body contouring works by exposing stubborn fat deposits to controlled cooling temperatures. The temperature is specific as fat cells will die off at higher temperatures than other tissue cells. Body contouring with CoolSculpting is non-invasive and requires no anesthetic or recovery time.
The CoolSculpting device is applied to the fatty area to freeze a percentage of the fat cells in an area. After your treatment, the body slowly sheds the dead fat cells, typically about 24 percent of the fat in the target area.
The procedure is simple and relatively comfortable. Depending on the size of the treatment area and how many areas you are having treated, you can expect the treatment to take between 30 minutes to two hours. After the treatment there will be some tingling and redness, but this fades in the following few hours.
Results will start to develop over the following weeks with most patients noticing fat reduction at three weeks. It can take up to three months for the full results to become apparent. After three months you can choose to undergo another body contouring session to reduce an area even more.
