What to Know About Coolsculpting: a Beginner’s Guide
The beauty industry is vast and ever-changing. Even though women spend an average of just $144 a year on beauty, a beauty routine doesn’t have to stop at your makeup bag. There are plenty of different surgical treatments and non-invasive procedures you can have to help emphasize your look, no matter the end goal.
One way you can do this is through cool laser sculpting. A coolsculpting procedure can help you lose the last couple of pounds you’ve been struggling with for a while. Here we answer some commonly asked question about this medical treatment.
What exactly is coolsculpting?
Coolsculpting is the only fat freezing FDA-approved procedure. It works to freeze small sections of your body fat so that your body will naturally dispose of it, giving you a more sculpted and toned look.
Is it a weight loss procedure?
While it is used to remove fat, coolsculpting isn’t a procedure used to produce dramatic weight loss. Instead, it is designed to eliminate pockets of unwanted fat and is used as a last step resort. For example, if you have stubborn pockets of fat on your abdomen that won’t go away with consistent exercise and healthy eating, then coolsculpting could be for you.
What are coolsculpting results?
While it depends on how much body fat you have to work with, any and all coolsculpting results will be permanent. This is because the procedure will completely remove fat cells in your specific targeted area and flush them away as a part of the body’s natural waste removal process. You will see full results about two months after the treatment.
How does the procedure work?
Coolsculpting works by delivering a controlled cooling mechanism to the fat cells underneath the skin. The fat cells become so cold they crystallize and die, giving off a more sculpted look. However, coolsculpting only works best on a patient’s stomach/abdomen, flanks, back, thigh, and under the chin. Additionally, it is not a loose skin treatment and will not work on already sagging skin.
