Stubborn body fat represents one of the most common problems people have. It tends to accumulate as a person experiences weight gain or ages. The worst part about excess body fat is that it tends to persist through diet and exercise. It can accumulate on a person’s frame in places where it is difficult for the body to metabolize, which in turn leads to a buildup of fatty tissue that does not diminish.
The good news is that there are ways to remove this fat without the need for surgical procedures. CoolSculpting® is one of the most reliable ways to do this.
What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is a procedure that utilizes the process of cryolipolysis to remove fat cells. This damages fat cells in a way that causes an irreversible change in the tissue, which leads to the body removing these cells.
The reason why this treatment works involves the fact that fat cells are weak to temperature changes. Beyond a certain temperature change, these cells are unable to protect themselves. This leads to the fat cells breaking down.
The unique part about CoolSculpting® is that it leaves healthy cells, such as skin and muscle tissue, unharmed. The temperature change does not affect these cells in a way that causes permanent harm.
After the fat cells are affected in the certain area, the body’s lymphatic system can gradually remove them as waste. This leads to a natural reduction that looks and feels as natural as if you were losing the fat in the area through diet and exercise.
Why Should You Consider CoolSculpting®?
Some of the main reasons to consider this treatment include:
- Avoiding surgery – CoolSculpting® does not require a single incision, which means that the stressful process of surgical procedures can be avoided.
- Fast results that look natural – The results are both gradual and quick due to the way this procedure leverages the lymphatic system to remove fat cells affected by this process.
- Minimal to no discomfort – CoolSculpting® is an incredibly effective but comfortable procedure. Most patients will find it similar to a relaxing, spa-like experience that produces tangible results.
- Compatibility with other procedures – This treatment is compatible with other procedures, which includes those designed to tighten the skin without surgery. This can give you a more youthful appearance and a more complete rejuvenation of your body in certain areas.
