If you are generally fairly happy with the shape and size of your body, but you have stubborn wobbly areas that don’t seem to respond to diet or exercise, you may be left feeling extremely frustrated with your appearance but are unwilling to undergo a surgical procedure to address your concerns. Fortunately, there are alternatives to conventional cosmetic surgery and one of the most popular that can address lumps and loose areas and leave you with a tighter, toned appearance is known as CoolSculpting.
We are proud to be able to offer our patients the benefit of CoolSculpting, performed here in the comfort of our offices in Weston, FL.
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved, non-invasive cosmetic procedure that is also sometimes called fat freezing. This is because the technique involves using freezing temperatures to destroy fat cells so that they are metabolized and processed out of the body using its natural methods of elimination. Since fat cells cannot multiply and only grow larger, their elimination is permanent and provided you do not gain weight, the effects of the procedure can be long-lasting.
The actual process involves the CoolSculpting machine being placed directly over the area of your body that you wish to target. CoolSculpting has been shown to be effective at removing stubborn fat cells in many locations, including the hips, flanks, thighs, buttocks, abdomen and upper arms. The machine delivers extremely cold temperatures to the area, and since fat is more sensitive to temperature than skin, the fat cells are destroyed without causing any damage to the skin itself, or the blood vessels, tissues, and nerves.
Although the temperatures delivered are extremely cold, there is no need for anesthetic since the area naturally becomes numb. Patients can read, listen to music or simply relax whilst the treatment, which usually takes around an hour depending on the target location, is carried out. There is no downtime following a CoolSculpting treatment and you can go back to work or your other usual activities immediately.
Since the treatment relies on the metabolization and elimination of fat cells, it will take at least several weeks to start to see the results of your treatment. As more and more fat is processed out of your body, you will continue to see the effects of your procedure for up to a month.
Some patients choose to undergo a series of CoolSculpting procedures in order to obtain the best results, although others can see a significant improvement in their shape after just one. Our team will be happy to advise you if a course of treatments is suitable for you and if so, approximately how many sessions you may need to see the improvements that you are looking for.
If you are frustrated with areas of your body that won’t seem to tone up no matter what you try, CoolSculpting could hold the answer. Find out more or schedule a confidential consultation today by calling our spa and cosmetic surgery offices in Weston, FL.
