Coolsculpting is an innovative technique to get rid of unwanted cellulite. It requires no lengthy recovery period. Why? Because using light suction, the skin is gently pulled up by applicators, which provide extremely cold temperatures to destroy the layers of fat cells. The procedure is not painful, and anesthesia is not needed.
Don’t fret: 90 percent of women have cellulite, and the majority of men at some point will have extra breast tissue that they’d like to eliminate. Here are the areas normally treated:
- Abdomen (muffin top)
- Upper back (bra rolls)
- Lower back
- Flanks (love handles)
- Male breasts
During the procedure, patients read, surf the Internet, chat on the phone, and even rest – that’s how the comfortable Coolsculpting is. Patients may also have other services done, like Botox and filler injections, during their CoolSculpting procedure.
How can it be so comfortable? CoolSculpting uses Cryolipolysis: The two CoolSculpting paddles are placed on either side of the treatment areas and chill the areas. The paddles stay in place for about an hour. A deep cold and mild pulling sensation will last for the first few minutes before the area numbs – and then you can relax the time away! Maybe update a Facebook status.
To boot, five different size applicators are available, so each treatment precisely addresses the target areas. The surrounding tissue remains unaffected – thus it remains healthy.
After treatment, the target areas are now lifeless cells, and the months following the procedure, your body will naturally reabsorb them, slimming those areas down. To see results, it may take anywhere between two and four months, but for full results wait until around 16 weeks. Then appreciate those results!
The best part (other than the final results, of course) is that you can resume all activities right away: school, work, and exercise.
What Are the Typical Risks of Coolsculpting?
Mild redness, swelling, and bruising may be noticeable at first. There can be some itching and tenderness as well, but all will resolve quickly. When performed by an experienced provider, like Dr. Ran Y. Rubinstein, there is little risk for complications. Remember that the treatment is completely safe for the surrounding, healthy tissue.
