Top 4 benefits of CoolSculpting

Posted on November 16, 2017 by Cynthia M. Poulos, M.D.

CoolSculpting is a very simple procedure in which certain parts of the body are targeted and cleared of  fat cells with applied cooling. The cells that are targeted die out and are flushes out of the body naturally. This can take 3 to 6 months but most patients can see some results after a single treatment which is an hour long at most. The following are 4 of the main benefits you can get from this procedure:

  1. CoolSculpting is quite effective against stubborn fat pockets that refuse to melt away even with rigorous diet and exercise. Since it is used to target specific areas only, it can be used to melt off fat naturally and without any pervasive side-effects. You won’t need anesthesia for it either.
  1. There are no needles or surgical equipment involved at all. This also means that injuries such as nerve damage and permanent side-effects are next to zero.
  1. There is no downtime after the treatment either. You can return to your activities and your job soon after the treatment is complete. Since the procedure freezes off fat cells, they never return unless you gain more weight of course. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle and exercise, you can retain that trim figure for years.
  1. Each session takes about an hour to complete.

Even though the results are natural looking, that does not mean that the procedure should be used as a replacement for diet and exercise. The results are not immediate even though they will be noticeable from the first treatment. You can expect 20% of fat reduction with each visit but that does not mean you can forego a healthy lifestyle.

You are a good candidate for this treatment if you have stubborn fat around your body such as in your abdomen, legs, bra line, chin and around your thighs. However, if you are severely allergic to cold or are pregnant or are breastfeeding, then this treatment is not advisable.
