When people think about sculpting their body or removing unwanted fat, the first thing that comes to mind is often liposuction. That’s completely understandable since liposuction has been shown time and time again to be an effective way to get rid of unwanted fat. However, there are a lot of non-surgical options that provide excellent results for those who would rather not go through an invasive procedure. For example, CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical option that has allowed a growing number of people to remove pockets of unwanted fat from their body.
One of the first questions that people ask when they hear about how the CoolSculpting® process works is if it involves discomfort. Well, as the name suggests, the procedure does involve controlled cooling. An applicator is used to freeze the fat in the target area. This means that the only sensation you will feel is intense cold, which is then quickly followed by numbness in the treated area. Then, the applicator pulls on the fatty tissue to expedite the process. No part of this process causes the patient intense discomfort.
Others want to know what they are supposed to do while they are receiving treatment. Most people spend their time reading or watching a movie on their smart device. Some people find the process so relaxing that they actually end up taking a nap. You can do whatever makes you feel the most comfortable. The entire process typically takes no less than an hour to complete. If you’re the type of person who has a busy schedule, it’s likely that this is going to be one of the few times you get to sit with no interruptions. So, enjoy it! Relax knowing that you are saying goodbye to your stubborn, unwanted fat.
Another question that people ask is about the recovery of the procedure. One of the most amazing things about the CoolSculpting® procedure is that it’s able to provide drastic results without surgery. This means you can immediately go back to your normal activities as soon as your treatment session is finished. In fact, there have been many instances where our clients have had the procedure done and then afterward went right back to work. Their daily routine was not interrupted by the procedure at all.
Another concern that people have is about possible side effects. Since this is a nonsurgical procedure, things like infection, scarring or other serious complications are not an issue with CoolSculpting®. Any minor side effects are temporary and will fade away quickly after your treatment is completed.
