You’ve dieted. You’ve exercised. But you’re still left with stubborn pockets of jiggly fat that just won’t budge. If that sounds familiar, you’re not alone. Most of us have stubborn areas of fatty tissue that don’t respond to dieting and exercise. Despite all our hard work, we can still be left with flabby areas that stick to us like glue, no matter what we do.
It’s discouraging — but there is some good news. With CoolSculpting® treatment at Concord MedSpa, you can get rid of stubborn fat once and for all — without surgery and without downtime.
How does CoolSculpting® work?
Unlike other laser-based body contouring treatments that use laser heat to “melt” unwanted fat, CoolSculpting® uses cold energy to freeze fat, a technique called “cryolipolysis.” Like other types of body sculpting treatments, CoolSculpting® can be used on different areas of the body, including the belly, flanks, thighs, and even the upper arms. As the cold energy reaches the targeted fat cells, it causes those cells to become brittle and break apart. The CoolSculpting® device delivers cold energy in a very focused and precise way so only the fat cells are affected, while the surrounding tissues remain unharmed. After the fat cells break apart, your lymph system carries away the resulting debris over the following weeks, leaving behind slimmer, sleeker contours.
Because CoolSculpting® is completely noninvasive, there are no incisions and no anesthesia, and there’s also no downtime. You can go right back to your regular routine right after your treatment, which makes it really easy to fit your CoolSculpting® session into your busy schedule. Since CoolSculpting® uses your body’s lymph system to eliminate the debris left after your treatment, it can take as long as 12 weeks or so to see the final results of your treatment. By scheduling a CoolSculpting® treatment now, you’ll be able to see those sleeker contours by the time swimsuit season is here.
Your CoolSculpting® treatment
Most CoolSculpting® sessions take less than an hour, but the specific amount of time can vary, depending on the area that’s being treated (and if you’re having more than one area treated). During your session, you’ll lie back comfortably while the CoolSculpting® device does all the work. Initially, your skin will feel cold as the cooling energy penetrates, but your body will quickly adjust.
Different CoolSculpting® applicators are available, depending on the area that’s being treated. As the cooling energy penetrates your skin, a gentle suctioning action keeps the device in contact with your skin, enabling the cooling energy to reach deeper layers of fat with more consistency and greater effects.
Once your treatment session is complete, your skin in the treatment area may look pinkish and feel a bit tender, but these effects are only temporary. You can expect to see the final results of your treatment at about two to three months after your session, once your body has a chance to carry off the fatty debris. Many people achieve the results they want with just one treatment but depending on the amount of fat you want to get rid of and other treatment goals, you might benefit from a second treatment once the results of the first treatment are visible.
CoolSculpting® can be a great option for both women and men who want to get rid of stubborn areas of resistant fat, but it’s not meant as a weight-loss treatment. Instead, it’s a body contouring procedure designed to refine the results of weight loss or to help people who are at or near their ideal weight slim down isolated areas, so they look sleeker and feel more confident. If you've already lost a lot of weight, CoolSculpting can be a great way to help you shed those last few stubborn pounds as well.
