What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting, also known as Cryolipolysis is a procedure that uses a medical suctioning device to freeze fat cells, which destroys them and causes them to die. It is the only FDA-approved nonsurgical fat reduction treatment that uses cooling to rid your body of fat cells. It is the perfect alternative to traditional liposuction and relies on the principle of controlled cooling for a non-invasive way to reshape your body and reduce the amount of fat cells you have.
What is The Procedure Like?
Taking as much time as a lunch break the procedure is relatively simple. You sit in a chair while the doctor puts a suctioning device on the area you want to sculpt. The whole procedure takes about an hour and many find there to be little to no discomfort so feel free to take a book to read or play a game on your tablet or phone while you wait. Once you’re all done you can get back to your day-to-day life with no downtime.
What Body Areas Can Be Done?
The parts of the body that can benefit from CoolSculpting range from person to person and will be discussed on an individual level with your doctor but the most common areas that people have reshaped are the stomach area for cases like muffin tops, the back for love handles, thighs and upper arms.
What Are The Side Effects?
There is no anesthesia involved and no incisions, marks or injections made so there are minimal side effects. The most common side effects are redness, bruising, numbness and slight irritation to the area that was reshaped but they go away relatively quickly. The way it was developed allows just subcutaneous fat tissue cells to freeze and die without damaging your skin. Studies done on CoolSculpting patients showed no serious long-lasting side effects were found during a follow-up time of six months.
Although you can see results within the first month it can take up to four months for the full results to take effect and because you are completely destroying your fat cells they can’t come back. That’s not to say that if you decide to throw living a healthy lifestyle out the window that you can’t develop new fat cells as a result of bad habits. Just remember that when considering any type of cosmetic treatment nothing is more important than finding a doctor with skill and experience and Dr. Rapaport is one of them.
