So many different treatments promise to help firm and tone your body. Some of them work — but others? Not so much. Body sculpting is designed for people at a healthy weight who have stubborn areas of fat. These fatty pockets just will not go away, regardless of the exercise people do or the healthy diets they eat.
CoolSculpting is a favorite body contouring and sculpting treatment for many different reasons. This advanced technology is effective and FDA-approved for many different body areas.
If you’re healthy and have pockets of stubborn fat that will not disappear despite diet and exercise, you might find everything you’ve been searching for with CoolSculpting treatments at Perfect Skin Center.
What Is CoolSculpting, and How Does It Work?
CoolSculpting treatments freeze fat cells to eliminate them permanently from the body. The procedure is the world’s most popular non-invasive fat-reduction treatment and only takes about 35 minutes for a treatment session.
Since it’s non-invasive, there are no incisions, healing time, downtime for recovery, anesthesia, or anything else associated with surgery.
Using advanced technology to deliver controlled cooling to fat cells in a targeted area, the CoolSculpting device lowers the temperature of fat cells to a level at which they become damaged and eventually die.
Once those cells die, they are slowly broken down by the body and eliminated naturally. Only one treatment is needed to deliver long-lasting results, but most patients return for more.
What Happens During a CoolSculpting Treatment Session?
Session durations will vary depending on what areas of the body are being treated. When you arrive for your appointment, we’ll have you sit or lie down, depending on the targeted area, and get nice and comfortable.
We’ll then place the device on the chosen area, and with precision cooling, your treatment begins. That’s it! There should not be any discomfort during the procedure, just a cooling sensation. You can go back to your normal daily plans after treatments, too. CoolSculpting is able to reduce fat in an area with a single session!
During your procedure, which is performed in-office under a physician’s supervision, your skin will be drawn into a type of cup. This is done via mild vacuum pressure. The skin will remain there for the duration of treatment as the controlled cooling is administered to eliminate the fat cells hiding underneath.
After your session, you can resume your day as if nothing happened! There is no sedation or anesthesia, which means you can drive yourself to and from your appointments. You won’t need to interrupt someone else’s day to transport you.
What Areas of the Body Can CoolSculpting in Phoenix Treat?
One of the most popular requests patients make is for CoolSculpting stomach fat. However, many other areas can be treated, toned, and slimmed down with this incredible technology. Some other popular body areas for treatment include:
- Double chin
- Upper arms
- Love handles
- Back fat
The results patients enjoy can be enhanced even more by the use of the new CoolAdvantage applicator, which delivers faster treatment times and superior comfort. In addition, having Zimmer ZWave radial pulsed therapy after your treatment instead of a massage can improve your results even more — by up to 50%!
With all treatment areas, CoolSculpting targets fat cells without harming any surrounding tissue, including the skin tissue.
Have you ever considered liposuction but didn’t meet the criteria or didn’t want to go through such an invasive procedure and the recovery period that follows? You owe it to yourself to find out whether CoolSculpting is what you need!
What to Expect from Your CoolSculpting Results
After a handful of days following your treatment appointment for CoolSculpting, the fat cells that have been treated begin going through a process called apoptosis. This simply means the cells go through a series of steps that lead to their death and elimination, which is the ultimate goal of CoolSculpting.
The cells going through apoptosis begin to shrink and are slowly broken down by the body over several months so that they can be eliminated through the liver. While one treatment can be enough for small target areas and areas with a little unwanted fat, larger areas and areas with more fat may require multiple sessions.
Results are permanent in that the fat cells destroyed and eliminated are gone for good. However, you need to understand that new fat cells can take their place if you’re not careful about living a healthy lifestyle with proper diet and exercise.
This treatment has been shown to eliminate fat in targeted areas by an average of 20% with just one treatment. If further sculpting is desired, subsequent treatments can reduce fat even more.
Are You a Candidate for CoolSculpting?
It’s important to understand that CoolSculpting, like other body sculpting treatments, is not meant to be a weight loss treatment. For people who are obese and have widespread excess fat, other methods for fat loss are more suitable.
If you are at a fairly normal weight, are in good health overall, and have small areas of stubborn fat that are diet- and exercise-resistant, you are likely an excellent candidate for CoolSculpting!
