From cellulite removal to under eye circles treatment, there are now non-invasive procedures to fix any issue. One of the most cutting edge procedures (pun intended) that is sweeping the non-surgical cosmetic world is CoolSculpting.
At one point, the battle of the bulge could only be conquered through difficult regimes of diet and exercise. Blegh. And if genetics were against you, the only solution was going under the knife. All that has changed with the introduction of CoolSculpting- a procedure that uses non-invasive fat freezing for weight loss and body contouring. The results are so effective that from the point it gained popularity in 2010, it took less than 2 years for the demand grow by 823% in 2012.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculping uses a futuristic-looking machine to freeze fat away. During the procedure, unwanted fat is pressed between CoolScupting arms by a trained professional. The arms cool the fat cells to a temperature that causes them to crystallize. Once the fat cells expire, they are eliminated from the body through urine, leaving the tissue around the fat unharmed. We found this concept intriguing and dug around to get answers to the questions you’re asking yourself:
- How long does it take to recover from a CoolSculpting treatment?
You will not need to take any time off of work after receiving a CoolSculpting treatment. The extent of the recovery time is the two minutes after the treatment that the area will need to be massaged to improve the final appearance.
- How much time does a CoolSculpting session require?
You will not need to notify your mailman to stop delivering your mail while you are away freezing your fat off. Each treatment takes about an hour from start to finish.
- How much fat does this thing really take care of?
It is possible to remove 25% of your unwanted fat through CoolScultping treatments. The best results require a few visits to achieve though.
- Is CoolSculpting useful for cellulite removal?
Because CoolSculpting just expels unwanted fat and leaves the surface tissue untouched, it does not induce cellulite removal. On the plus side, because it is so non-invasive, it also does not cause scarring.
- I have a Hawaiian vacation planned next month, could I use CoolSculpting to get a beach bod before then?
If you are able to harness the power of time travel to start treatments a few months ago, then you are in luck. Otherwise, if you start your first CoolSculpting treatment today, you should see results in 2 to 4 months.
- How effective is the CoolSculpting technology?
Studies show that 86% of people who undergo the treatment have great results. Those are pretty good odds.
