Liposuction remains one of the most popular plastic surgeries in the United States, but this invasive procedure requires anesthesia and extended recovery. CoolSculpting® is your non-invasive fat removal option that requires no downtime. The process uses “Cryolipolysis” a method which works through controlled cooling devices that effectively freeze and kill fat cells in the area without damaging the skin tissue. Most people have heard of this revolutionary technology, but it can treat more areas than you may realize.
1. Get Rid of Your Double Chin with CoolSculpting
The submental area, or the area beneath your chin, is a difficult area to get rid of fat. The dreaded double chin can develop with weight gain, but it could also be due to your genetics and the aging process. CoolSculpting® is FDA-approved to address double chins and involves using a smaller model of the controlled cooling device to hold onto the fat in the area. The treatment takes approximately one hour and may cause minimal to no discomfort. You can read, scroll through social media, watch TV, or respond to work emails to help the time pass.
2. Eliminate That Stubborn Upper Arm Fat
Specific strengthening exercises and weight lifting can help tone the upper arm area, but the way your body holds weight varies from person to person. Some men and women gain fat quickly in their abdomen without affecting the arms, while others have the opposite issue. CoolSculpting® can get rid of the arm “flab” that so many people struggle to address on their own.
3. Remove Fat Pockets Beneath the Buttocks
This area is sometimes referred to as the “banana roll,” and it can make your backside appear bigger and flatter. CoolSculpting® to address fat pockets underneath the buttocks can give you a better body contour, and we can also treat the inner and outer thighs to transform your figure. While liposuction can also address unwanted fat in these areas, CoolSculpting® doesn’t require anesthesia or extended recovery.
CoolSculpting Recovery and Results
CoolSculpting® treatments take approximately one hour, but you may require additional sessions to reach your full results. There’s little to no discomfort, but you may experience numbness, tingling, or minimal pain at the treated body part. You’ll have some swelling, but you’ll start to see your results within three weeks with your full outcome settling in after a few months. That’s because CoolSculpting® kills the fat cells which are then processed and eliminated naturally through your body’s lymphatic system. Once the fat cells are destroyed and removed, they’re gone for good, but you can still gain weight in the area as the remaining fat cells can expand.
