Previously, if diet and exercise could not eliminate the stubborn fat bulges, a lot of patients are going for liposuction, which is one invasive surgical procedure. They may also go for the radio frequency devices or such infrared technology but such type of device just offers a limited improvement. With such technological advancement, the patients can now reduce the unwanted fat bulges and also get to enjoy such permanent reduction in the fat cells on the non-invasive and non-surgical method which is called CoolSculpting offering excellent results.
The CoolSculpting may surely reduce the areas which are hard to reach with exercise and diet and these are the love handles, the upper belly fat, the lower belly fat rolls, the back fat and under bra fat. This is quite an effective technique which would improve the contour of the body.
CoolSculpting surely works through that revolutionary technology that is referred to as cryolipolysis. This is a procedure which can destroy fat through cold induction and the fat cells are actually cooled to such temperature allowing them to be removed or eliminated. The procedure is surely safe and the temperature which is needed for the destruction of the fat cells is much higher than what would actually damage the skin, the nerves and the muscle. No damage happens in the surrounding structures with CoolSculpting.
With such procedure, the physician would apply such skin protecting gel pad on your skin as well as the CoolSculpting applicator which would be positioned on the area that should be treated. The device would draw that fat bulge in and would cool down the fat in order to induce the cryolipolysis and also to continuously monitor the temperature as well as adjust this as required.
Unlike liposuction, in which the fat cells would be suctioned outside your body, CoolSculpting treatment actually causes the body to get rid of those fat cells by lymphatic drainage system. Moreover, the cells would be removed gradually by the body over a few months.
Through CoolSculpting, such treatment of every fat bulge would typically take just an hour to perform. The love handles can only take 2 to 4 hours of treatment and such lower abdomen would usually take an hour through using that special bigger applicator. However, each case is quite different and the patient and physician should discuss this prior to the procedure.
There is no need for anesthesia with this procedure unlike liposuction. The patient may even use the telephone or the laptop or probably watch a movie or read a certain book. Well, the only discomfort that the patients would feel when going for CoolSculpting is that sensation of something that is pinching or squeezing the fat once the device is placed on the skin. This will just readily go away in the first five minutes of the procedure.
