The procedure utilizes cold temperatures to freeze fat cells and destroy them permanently. Since it is a non-invasive fat reduction process, it is often used as an alternative to liposuction. During the procedure, the areas that need fat reduction are suctioned into a vacuum-like applicator with cooling panels. For about an hour, the fat cells are exposed to freezing temperatures that will destroy them and then be naturally expelled through the lymphatic system. As you will have to wait for the body to expel the destroyed fat naturally, the result is not immediately visible, you may have to wait a few weeks or months to notice a more shapely body or toned areas.
Just like liposuction, CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss procedure. It is a fat reduction procedure for people who have problem areas that are too difficult to target with exercise and diet. Having said that, CoolSculpting is meant for healthy individuals with a stable weight. So if you are still in the process of losing weight, you might want to wait until you’ve reached your ideal weight that you fully intend to maintain.
Furthermore, not all patients who want to trim their fat with CoolSculpting are eligible. The quality of the skin is also a huge factor in determining whether the procedure will work for you or not. If you have loose or thick skin in the areas you want to target, the procedure might not work as intended, and in some cases, the skin may appear droopy once the fat has been flushed out.
If you have the right skin quality, your weight is stable, and you want to lose the extra fat on the chin, thighs, tummy, back, arms, or butt, then CoolSculpting is definitely worth a shot. It’s non-invasive so there’s no risk of infection; there are minimal side effects, and zero downtime.
