Both men and women desire an attractive body. They may participate in healthier eating and a more active lifestyle to achieve it. However, there are certain areas of the body where unwanted fat may continue to linger, regardless of one’s attempts to naturally work it off. This is where certain procedures and treatments may come into play, specifically CoolSculpting.
What is CoolSculpting?
The providers in Show Low, AZ at Olack Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery may recommend the use of CoolSculpting for patients who have unwanted fat in specific areas of the body that are not affected by improved diet and exercise. This is extremely typical of the abdominal area where the stomach and flanks may be bothersome. CoolSculpting uses a special technology known as cryolipolysis. Instead of a more traditional means of removing unwanted fat using liposuction, this method uses a specialized device that cools the fat underneath the skin to essentially freeze them away. These fat cells are flushed out through the body’s lymphatic system, and patients are left with less fat and improved body contours after just a few treatment sessions. The more treatments performed, the more noticeable the results!
Is CoolSculpting safe?
CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared device on the market for effectively reducing fat cells in the treated area for better body contours. The procedure is non-invasive, eliminating the need for surgical interventions, and is even safe for the skin! Patients are advised as to any side effects that may occur, though rare, and are educated on what to expect before, during, and after their appointment.
Is CoolSculpting painful?
Absolutely not! CoolSculpting freezes the fat cells beneath the skin, so most patients will notice the cooling effects. However, it is not painful, and many of our patients read or relax while their procedure takes place.
