How Does CoolSculpting Work?

Do you struggle with weight loss? You’re not alone. Losing weight is a challenging process that stumps millions of people around the world. Some of the most promising diets oftentimes fail because the weight comes back as soon as you stop dieting. CoolSculpting is one of the newest FDA approved procedures that can be an effective, long-term solution for stubborn fat. Here’s how it works:

What Is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is based on a proven scientific process called cryolipolysis. In cryolipolysis, fat cells located underneath the skin are targeted by doctors to be eliminated. These cells are then frozen in place. The frozen cells eventually die and are cleared away by the body’s natural processes.

This enables the body to get rid of fat cells in a much more natural manner as compared to invasive procedures like liposuction.

What Are The Advantages?

Here are a few of the advantages you can expect from CoolSculpting.

Safe Procedure

CoolSculpting is a safe procedure that uses minimally invasive techniques to freeze fat tissue in localized areas. This allows doctors to deliver the results that will make you look sculpted without the use of more invasive procedures.

Effective Treatment

CoolSculpting is rapidly becoming a more preferred option among patients and with good reason. One study found that targeted fat removal of enlarged male breasts using cryolipolysis was extremely effective with producing visual improvement in their condition.

Cost Effective

Normal fat removal procedures require anesthesia, surgical equipment and can cost thousands of dollars. This can be devastating to some people who desperately need the treatment.

By doing away with costly anesthesia and hospital beds, fat removal can be much more affordable than many people realize.

Controlled Procedure

When compared to more invasive procedures like liposuction, CoolSculpting is a much more controlled method of fat removal with fewer side effects. Traditional methods can lead to changes in the skin or change lipid pools. CoolSculpting reduces the risk of both while significantly reducing fat and providing a contour to the body.

What to Expect From BMI Coolsculpting

Do you struggle with stubborn body fat that won’t go away no matter how committed you are to diet and exercise? If so, Coolsculpting may be the solution you’ve been looking for. Coolsculpting isn’t for everyone, however. Here’s a look at what you can expect from BMI Coolsculpting to help you determine if it’s the right solution for you.

What Is Coolsculpting?

Coolsculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction procedure that eliminates stubborn fat cells that are resistant to diet and exercise. This FDA-cleared treatment is meant only for fat reduction purposes and not for weight loss. It uses a controlled cooling procedure that freezes fat cells and causes them to die and to be eliminated safely from the body. Coolsculpting can be used in various parts of the body, such as thighs, underneath buttocks, abdomen, back and chin.

What to Expect From Coolsculpting Treatment

Here’s a look at the steps you can expect when undergoing Coolsculpting treatment.

One-on-One Consultation

The first step is to schedule a one-on-one consultation with an approved Coolsculpting provider, such as BMI. During this consultation, your medical professional will complete a physical evaluation, discuss your fat reduction goals and determine your treatment options.

Customized Treatment Plan

If your physician determines that you are a prime candidate for Coolsculpting, they will create a customized treatment plan to meet your specific needs and goals. Your physician will let you know if you will need one or more treatments in order to obtain the results you want.

What to Expect on Treatment Day

Most treatments take between 30 and 60 minutes, so feel free to bring a book or mobile device to occupy your time. Your medical provider will apply a gel pad and applicator to the treatment area(s). As you physician applies the controlled cooling, the area may feel cold. You also may feel a slight tug or pull as the attached vacuum applicator pulls out fat tissues.

Possible Side Effects

Coolsculpting side effects are minimal but could include swelling, bruising, tingling, redness, skin sensitivity, itching, aching, cramping, tenderness and firmness. Typically, any side effects diminish within a just a few days or weeks.

No Downtime

Since Coolsculpting is a non-surgical process, the downtime after treatment is minimal. In fact, many patients return to their normal activities immediately after treatment.

When to Expect Results

Initial results of Coolsculpting can appear in as little as three weeks, but full results may take up to three months.

If you think Coolsculpting may be the solution to your stubborn body fat, schedule your one-on-one consultation with BMI today. As an approved Coolsculpting provider, BMI offers the safe and effective fat reduction treatment to help you get the body you’ve always wanted.

What Is CoolSculpting®?

It doesn’t matter how strict your diet or how intense your exercise regime is, you just can’t seem to shift stubborn fat from certain areas. We all have those troublesome areas where fat can build up. Common culprits include the thighs, tops of the arms, hips and stomach, and no matter how hard you try, you just can’t target these areas enough.

The good news is that a new procedure could hold the key to eliminating fat from these areas. Cleared by the FDA and developed by renowned specialists at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard University, CoolSculpting® uses a patented technique that “freezes” fat cells without any downtime and, most importantly, without any surgery. What’s more, the results are noticeable and they last.

How CoolSculpting® Works

Is it really possible to freeze away fat? Well, and here comes the science bit, when fat cells freeze they can be targeted precisely by the CoolSculpting® process. Freezing fat cells triggers them into a natural cell death and the procedure is so precise that no damage will occur to surrounding nerves, skin or tissue.

Once frozen, the fat cells will start to wither and die. The body then naturally eliminates them and leaves behind the perfectly sculpted areas you always dreamed of. From sleeker hips to more svelte thighs, CoolSculpting® can give you the body you want without resorting to drastic diets or injuring yourself through harsh exercise.

Benefits of CoolSculpting®

One of the most notable benefits of CoolSculpting® is that it is non-invasive. That means you can rid yourself of stubborn fat cells without injections or incisions. The procedure is also painless and many people have been known to even fall asleep during their treatment. You can also return to your normal activities right after your treatment — that means no downtime, no time off work and no long wait to see the results.

If you are looking for a procedure that eliminates fat cells permanently, CoolSculpting® is the answer. While exercise and diet can reduce the size of fat cells, these methods can’t remove them from the body completely. CoolSculpting® can, and that is perhaps the biggest benefit of all.
