Body sculpting without surgery sounds too good to be true, but it isn’t. Adults who are concerned about unsightly fat deposits in the tummy or abdomen often believe that liposuction or fat redistribution is the only available treatment, but a new technique that literally freezes away fat is becoming the most popular means to treating those trouble spots.
Known as CoolSculpting™, this new procedure works to eliminate fat buildup without the need for scalpels or scrapers. Instead, it gives the fat cells a jolt of freezing that kills the cells so that the body can eliminate them naturally.
If you are moderately overweight and have mild deposits of fat in your stomach area, buttocks, or thighs, we recommend you take a close look at CoolSculpting™.
How Freezing Eliminates Fat
Fat cells do not survive low temperatures, even though fat deposits help keep us warm. As we approach our middle-age years, fat deposits begin to form in places where the muscle tissue allows for extra volume. This commonly occurs in the lower tummy, buttocks, and upper thighs.
CoolSculpting™ removes these fat deposits by lowering the temperature of the fat cells. The instrument that may be used is a handheld wand that looks like a tiny vacuum cleaner. It has freezing coils much like a portable air conditioner. The skin itself is undamaged because the deep freeze occurs only beneath the skin.
During the Procedure
We consult with our client and determine the amount of fat that needs to be eliminated. We also chart the depth of the fat deposits so that we can calibrate the CoolSculpting™ monitor to deliver the precise amount of cold conduction for the proper period of time.
When the machine is programmed for the targeted area, the device is pressed against the skin. The vacuum action sucks in the skin and underlying tissue. The cold surface of the device interior quickly absorbs all the heat in the tissue.
The fat cells begin to solidify. They quickly die, and over the next several weeks, the fat is flushed from the body with other waste material.
What to Expect After Treatment
The area will seem a bit numb for a day or two. The procedure may be followed by a secondary freeze treatment several weeks later. However, the majority of the fat freezing will take place during and after the initial exposure to the CoolSculpting™ device.
This type of fat freezing treatment works best for those who have only a slight or moderate amount of excess fat in the targeted area. Those who are significantly overweight may want to consider another form of treatment.
