CoolSculpting uses advanced cooling technology to effectively target and eliminate fat cells without harming surrounding tissue. The damaged fat cells are broken down and slowly digested over the next few months. The body then can dispose of them naturally. CoolSculpting can be an ideal solution for those who are not looking for an invasive surgery, or only desire a smaller, more selective area for treatment, making it easy to remove the areas of fat that won’t go away from exercise or dieting.
The advantages of CoolSculpting include:
- Non-surgical procedure – no needles, surgical cutting, or anesthesia is necessary
- Little to no discomfort during the procedure
- Tissues surrounding the targeted area should remain unharmed
- Most patients are able to immediate resume normal daily activities
Because it is a non-invasive procedure, the recovery process following a CoolSculpting treatment typically involves minimal to zero downtime. You may experience some redness, irritation, and bruising in the treated area, but it should be minimal and relieve itself quickly. Most patients are able to resume normal daily activities, even work and exercise regimens, on the same day as the procedure.
