It sounds too good to be true, so it is no wonder many would skeptically ask – is CoolSculpting permanent? Read on and find out more about the coolest fat reduction technology there is!
What is CoolSculpting?
Also known as Cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting treatment is an FDA-approved, non-surgical, fat reduction, and body contouring treatment. With the help of cooling panels, the treatment works by freezing fat cells in areas carrying excess fats, thereby breaking down those fat cells that are unable to withstand very low temperatures. These fat cells are gradually eliminated from the body naturally.
CoolSculpting is used to target specific areas that are prone to stubborn fat pockets such as the:
- love handles (flanks)
- under bust/bra line bulges
- back fats
- banana rolls (under the buttocks)
- neck jowls
- upper arms
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical fat reduction technique that involves the use of a cooling panel to generate controlled, constant temperature at the treatment area. It’s typically done as an outpatient procedure.
The first stage of the process is to use cool gel packs over the treatment region to protect the skin’s surface. CoolSculpting applicators are flat plates with vacuum suction that are used to cool down the treatment area using a non-freezing gel. The vacuum-like device is then carefully passed over the targeted fat cells causing them to break down. After which, the process is usually followed by a gentle massage of the treated area to avoid leaving any lumps or bumps behind after the CoolSculpting treatment.
In general, the entire CoolSculpting treatment is not painful at all, even for those with low pain tolerance. Some may feel slight discomfort when being cooled down, which usually lasts about 30 minutes to an hour, depending on how thick the fatty tissues are under your skin.
Benefits of CoolSculpting Treatment
Cryolipolysis has steadily gained popularity since its FDA approval in 2010, with those that have been availing this procedure making up to hundreds of thousands yearly. No wonder since CoolSculpting has many benefits, including:
- Removes fat without surgery.
- Targets specific fatty areas that are difficult to eliminate naturally.
- Results can be seen after the first treatment, while optimal results can be achieved after multiple treatments that can be done within two or three months apart, depending on the body type.
- Compared to fat reduction surgeries like liposuction, CoolSculpting is much easier on the pocket.
- There is no need for anesthesia and each treatment only lasts about an hour on average.
- It has no major side effects and is not painful so it is safe to be done even for those with low pain tolerance.
- The treatment is non-invasive with no downtime whatsoever so you can go back to work immediately after the procedure.
Is CoolSculpting Safe?
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive form of fat reduction that has been used safely by thousands of people across the world. Because it only targets fatty cells, you can be confident that it will not cause any serious damage or side effects.
During the process, you may experience tugging, pulling, mild pinching, intense cold, tingling, stinging, aching and cramping at the treatment area. This will eventually subside as the area turns numb. Temporary redness, swelling, blanching, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, sensitivity in the area of treatment, and feeling of fullness in the back of the throat (after a treatment in the neck region) are all common temporary side effects.
In the rare event that your skin becomes inflamed after treatment, there is no need to be overly concerned since this is usually only a temporary response owing to the sensitivity of the skin.
Who Is A Good Candidate For CoolSculpting?
With its FDA clearance and clinically proven outcomes, you can be sure that the CoolSculpting technology is a safe procedure for individuals who want to get rid of stubborn fat cells without having to go under the knife.
However, not everyone is suited for CoolSculpting treatment so it’s best to consult with a trusted board-certified doctor first before getting the treatment done just to make sure that this is right for you and will produce the results that you want.
It is best to have realistic expectations about getting rid of stubborn fat. CoolSculpting is not intended to produce immediate results which is why it’s usually done in a series of treatments. Your doctor will usually assess how many treatments are necessary to see satisfactory results, depending on your body type and condition.
You should know that even though CoolSculpting is an excellent option for those wishing to have a contoured body but are not ready to go through surgical procedures, it is not a substitute treatment for weight loss.
So Is CoolSculpting Permanent?
All things considered, perhaps the best thing about CoolSculpting is its long-term effect as fat cells will continue dying off after every treatment session, which means you can achieve permanent fat reduction after multiple sessions. This is also why it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle such as eating right and regularly exercising so that the results can be maintained long term.
The results may be gradual but are permanent as long as you maintain a well-balanced lifestyle. With CoolSculpting treatment and the help of board-certified physicians, you can finally get rid of those pesky fat pockets without any problems at all!
