Do you dedicate your life to eating right and exercising, only to struggle with stubborn fat that clings to your body? If you’re committed to such a lifestyle, you may be able to finally lose inches in areas like your stomach, buttocks, and thighs. CoolSculpting is a fat reduction method that can help contour your body the way you want. At Bella Tu Medspa in Nyack, NY, we offer such treatments to help you destroy fat once and for all.
What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a cosmetic fat reduction treatment that breaks down fat cells in your body with controlled freezing. Once your fat cells freeze, they will begin to deteriorate and leave your body through natural urination. As a result, your body fat will shrink, and you’ll soon achieve the body that shapely look you’ve been dying to show off.
What to Expect
Each sculpting appointment takes between 35 minutes to an hour, depending on how many areas you have done. Your practitioner will begin by applying a gel pad to the treatment area to separate your skin from the cooling device. Next, he or she will apply the applicator to your body, which uses a sucking motion to cling to your skin, similar to a vacuum. After a few minutes, the device numbs the treatment area and goes to work.
During each session, you can relax and do whatever you want. Many patients use the time to read, check their email, or take a nap. After treatment is done, the practitioner removes the device from your body and performs a short massage, which breaks up the newly treated fat cells, so they deteriorate faster. Afterward, you’ll be able to go home and continue about your life.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
A single appointment can reduce up to 25% of fat cells in a treated area at once. Depending on your current weight and aesthetic goals, some patients are satisfied after only one treatment. On average, most patients plan to receive up to three treatments per area. For example, you can treat your abdominal area three times and your upper arms three times, or until you achieve your desired outcome.
If you decide to go for multiple treatments, you can expect to have 25% of your fat cells destroyed, followed by another 25% on your next visit, bringing the count up to 50%. On your third visit, you will have removed about 75%, and so on.
Aside from the apparent benefit of eliminating pockets of fat, this treatment has a few additional factors that make it a very appealing process. Here are a few of the most notable benefits of this treatment.
It Is FDA-Approved
This treatment has shown consistently positive results in clinical trials since its first appearance on the market. The Federal Drug Administration has approved freezing methods to reshape fat in your upper arms, back, bra area, flanks, thighs, jawline, chin area, buttocks, and abdomen. When you are losing weight, you can’t choose which areas your body decides to burn fat – but with this method, you can!
Not only can you achieve a slimmer, more defined physique, this fat-reduction treatment also provides you with long-last results. Once your fat cells have left your body, they won’t return. While you will not see immediate results, they will become apparent within one to two weeks as your body continues to flush them out. Most patients see optimal results within four to six months.
After each treatment, it is important to continue maintaining a healthy lifestyle to prevent gaining further fat. If needed, you may return for additional touch-up treatments about once a year. If you indulge in an unhealthy diet or throw in the towel on daily exercise, you can expect to lose less fat. Likewise, anyone with a metabolic condition may not achieve optimal results.
Non-Surgical & Non-Invasive
Body contouring treatments do not require surgery, incisions, injections, or anesthesia. Many patients prefer this method because it comes with less risk than a procedure like liposuction. Since cold temperatures do not harm your skin cells in the way it does fat cells, you will not have to worry about harming your skin or any underlying tissue.
Minimal Downtime Required
A typical appointment is short, efficient, and requires no recovery time. No downtime means you don’t have to deal with taking time off work or making arrangements for your responsibilities. Liposuction treatments require you to block off several hours for preparation, procedure, post-surgical recovery, and then at-home recovery. Plus, there is no risk of scarring with contouring treatments.
Compared to traditional liposuction surgeries, this method is usually a more cost-effective option. While you may need to schedule multiple appointments to get the results you desire, you’re still not paying for the cost of anesthesia, operating room fees, or medications that assist with recovery.
