You have likely heard about the benefits that can come from non-surgical body contouring treatments. You know that they can get rid of stubborn fat in areas on your body that have not responded to diet and exercise. However, you may not be sure about the right option for you. We would like to tell you how CoolSculpting® works and why it is so effective.
How the Treatment Works
Understanding how a non-surgical body contouring treatment works will help you to know what you should expect if you decide to have it performed and will help you to have realistic expectations. When it comes to CoolSculpting®, you may find it interesting to know how the whole treatment got started.
Doctors who were working in a children’s hospital noticed that some children were starting to develop dimples in their cheeks. They realized that the popsicles that they were eating on a regular basis were slowly causing fat cells to die off in the areas where the popsicles were being held. This revolutionary insight is what led to the creation of the treatment that is now known as CoolSculpting®.
This is a safe treatment. It has been reviewed by the FDA and has been approved for use for certain areas of the body. For example, it can be used to address fat on the abdomen and other areas.
It is good for people who are interested in this treatment to know how much fat they should expect to lose and how long it will take to lose that fat. First, the results are not immediate. It takes time for the fat cells that have been frozen to die off and to be eliminated through the body naturally. You will likely see the area that received treatment start to slim down in the weeks after the treatment. The full results are likely to be seen months later.
