Unlike many other cosmetic procedures, CoolSculpting is totally noninvasive and can provide great fat-loss results. This relatively new method, which has been around for almost ten years, has proven time and time again that it is an effective way to treat fat quickly and painlessly. Approved by the FDA only in 2010, this procedure’s popularity has skyrocketed in recent years.
Two defining aspects differentiate CoolSculpting from other cosmetic surgeries:
Noninvasive: CoolSculpting is 100 percent noninvasive. After the cooling pads break down the layer of fat underneath the skin, the body then naturally eliminates the broken-down fat on its own. Unlike other procedures where the fat has to be removed manually, this is a huge benefit that leaves absolutely no scarring on the patient’s body.
Skin Tightening: Skin starts losing its elasticity when the collagen and elastin degradation starts accelerating. With CoolSculpting, the extreme cold applied directly to the body actually helps the collagen and elastin regenerate, which in turn helps tighten the skin. Other procedures like laser liposuction offer this benefit, but only CoolSculpting can tighten the skin in a noninvasive manner.
Extra Benefits of CoolSculpting
Unlike other procedures that are used to mold and sculpt your body, CoolSculpting can be used for the primary purpose of eliminating unwanted fat and losing weight. So, it might be time to step into the doctor’s office and ask how CoolSculpting can help you.
Other procedure benefits include:
- Speedy fast (almost none) recovery time
- Time-efficient; one session can take from 30 minutes to one hour
- You can leave and resume your regular daily routine after each session
- No scarring
- Light bruising
- Immediate results
When Should You Consider CoolSculpting?
If you are looking to fine-tune your body or eliminate that last bit of stubborn fat, CoolSculpting might be perfect for you. This procedure provides you a two-in-one benefit by removing fat and tightening your skin at the same time, leaving you with a firm, sexy figure.
If you are looking for a more immediate solution and you do not mind getting a minimally invasive or invasive surgery, however, then other procedures such as liposuction and its variations might be the best solution for you. Remember, CoolSculpting typically takes several sessions, whereas other methods can get the job done effectively in one sitting.
