Understanding the Basics of CoolSculpting


You may begin your fat-elimination journey with dieting and exercise. However, fatty layers in your body may not respond to your hard work. Why struggle when you can go for Coolsculpting® Santa Monica to shed off that extra fat? While this procedure may not be for weight loss, it can greatly influence your weight loss results. Freezing from this procedure will permanently destroy fat cells in stubborn areas and leave your skin feeling tight.

When Do You Need CoolSculpting?

You can choose this method of losing excess fat if exercise and dieting have yet to yield the desired results. Your doctor may recommend it to eliminate loose and sagging skin, hives, and poor skin tone and reduce cellulite appearances. CoolSculpting can address stubborn fat in your lower back, thighs, belly, sides, and under your chin. The procedure involves freezing. Thus, you may not be a candidate for CoolSculpting if you do not respond to cold well, are overweight, and are expecting a child. Furthermore, CoolSculpting may not be appropriate in areas with varicose veins, nerve issues, rashes, and lesions.

What Happens During a CoolSculpting Procedure?

Your doctor will assess the treatment area and outline it with a marker. You will stay awake throughout the procedure. Your doctor will then use an applicator to freeze fat layer cells under your skin after applying a gel pad to protect your skin. The device will then suction the fatty bulge, and you may likely feel a tugging sensation at this state. Your skin in the area will eventually numb after ten minutes as the fat layer cools until a targeted temperature. CoolSculpting works by damaging fat cells in cold temperatures, which in turn will result in the death of the fat layers.

Are There Benefits to This Procedure?

You will likely experience many advantages from your CoolSculpting procedure. First, the procedure requires no surgical incision. Secondly, you can address different areas of your body with CoolSculpting in one treatment session, thus saving you time. Additionally, the procedure can work for people of all ages. CoolSculpting will not damage your muscles, nerve fibers, and blood vessels as it will only target the area with stubborn fat without affecting the surrounding cells. The destroyed fat cells from this procedure will permanently leave your body, thereby improving your appearance. Lastly, you can resume your routine activities after treatment almost immediately.

What Happens After CoolSculpting?

You will likely experience side effects like redness, swelling, discoloration, sensitivity, and aches, but they will go away after a few weeks. Your doctor may prescribe pain relievers to eliminate discomfort. You will notice results after three weeks of treatment, but you can achieve maximum results after two months.
