It’s no secret that being comfortable with how you look can help build a significant amount of confidence. Additionally, it has been well documented that more confident people are more successful than their less-confident peers.
One of the best ways to improve your self-image is to enhance your appearance, which often involves building muscle, losing fat, or both. And, many people have stubborn areas that seem to store fat no matter what they do.
Fortunately, Coolsculpting is a non-invasive option to resolve this issue. Not sure where to start? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
Here’s everything you need to know about Coolsculpting.
What Exactly Is Coolsculpting?
In stark contrast to conventional fat-reduction procedures like liposuction, Coolsculpting doesn’t involve any surgery, downtime, or needles.
Through a process called cryolipolysis, Coolsculpting freezes fat cells in a specified area in order to reduce the total amount of body fat that’s present. Over a period of 3 months, your body’s natural lymphatic system will get rid of the dead fat cells and purge them from your body, forever!
What Are Its Benefits?
Coolsculpting has been around for 10 years, and nearly 9 million treatments have been done, worldwide. Here are a few of the most notable benefits of freezing your fat cells.
Spot Fat Reduction
As you may expect, one of the most significant benefits of Coolsculpting is its capability to reduce fat cells in a targeted problem area, which can be hard to do with traditional diet and exercise.
Each person is more inclined to store large fat in certain areas. It’s not uncommon for someone to have a toned chest, shoulders, and arms but also have a significant amount of fat around the midsection or outer thighs. Coolsculpting allows you to tighten up these problem areas. Additionally, it is used to treat loose skin that is often left behind after weight loss.
Since Coolsculpting doesn’t involve surgery, you won’t experience the side effects that patients tend to experience after a surgical procedure. In fact, it’s highly likely that you won’t experience any side effects at all. Coolsculpting has no down time at all, so you can resume your normal life right after. The most common side effect after Coolsculpting is mild soreness in the treated area, similar to the feeling you may experience after working out.
Invasive procedures, like liposuction, carry the risk of potentially severe complications such as infection and require weeks of downtime.
Although there are a few factors that will influence how much you pay for your Coolsculpting treatment (such as the amount of fat in the treated area, how many areas you plan to treat, etc.) compared to liposuction, it’s exponentially cheaper, with far less downtime and side effects.
Something else to consider is the value of the treatment by factoring in the value of your own time. If it would take you seven or eight months of hard work, and extra time, dedicated towards exercise in order to lose fat in certain areas, the cost that you pay for the treatment may outweigh the time that it would take to do it on your own.
Every surgical fat reduction procedure leaves behind a visible scar on the patient’s body. Since the entire purpose of the treatment is to improve your physical appearance, you’re essentially replacing the presence of fat with the presence of a deep scar that may never go away. Coolsculpting does not require any cutting of any kind, so there is no chance of scarring.
Pain is often a major factor that deters would-be patients from going through a particular treatment. In fact, the fear of the pain a patient may experience could even entirely outweigh their desire to get the treatment done. Those who are considering Coolsculpting will be pleased to know that it’s virtually painless.
