How Coolsculpting Contours Curves Without Surgery

If you’re like many people, you’ve tried just about everything to get rid of the stubborn fat bulges from your body. Endless diets and food restrictions, and daily visits to the gym or trainer have done nothing to address the problem, and now you’re faced with contemplating surgery to finally eliminate the fat. Instead of giving in, we suggest you just need to cool it with Coolsculpting.

This revolutionary nonsurgical fat reduction treatment cools unwanted fat and destroys it with no downtime. Whether you have fat bulges on your abdomen, love handles, bra and back area, arms and inner and outer thighs, Coolsculpting can answer your prayers for a more contoured body without surgery.

Is CoolSculpting Right for Me?

As the first step, you will undergo thorough consultation to determine if CoolSculpting is right for you. One of our practitioners will perform an examination as well as find out about your cosmetic goals. During this time, it’s important that you ask any questions you have so you can make an informed decision regarding CoolSculpting.

The CoolSculpting device consists of two cooling panels that are used to properly target the area. As the first step, this device is placed on the target area, and the skin is drawn up between the two panels. The practitioner will then activate the patented freezing power of the CoolSculpting device. During the first few moments, you will feel a cold sensation on your skin, which should dissipate within the first several minutes. Over the next hour, the cooling panels work to eliminate unwanted fat cells while you read, work or take a nap.

Once the panels have done their job, your practitioner will remove the device. She will then massage the treatment area to break up the crystalized fat cells. This helps them to be reabsorbed by the body and eliminated completely.

What Results Can I expect from CoolSculpting?

Over the next three months, you will see a gradual reduction of fat in the treatment area. Your body will slowly break down the fat and get rid of it through natural healing processes. During this time, you will experience no discomfort at all, only the pleasure of seeing your figure reduce in size. If you have any questions or concerns that arise after your CoolSculpting procedure, the staff at the Lasky Aesthetics & Laser Center is always available. We strive to perform the best CoolSculpting Beverly Hills and Los Angeles have to offer, and we do this by being there for our patients long after their treatment is over.

What’s involved with Coolsculpting?

First of all, Coolsculpting offers a noninvasive way to remove localized body fat that laughs in the face of diet and exercise. By delivering controlled, targeted cooling to the areas of interest, fat cells are removed from the body through the natural metabolic process. Formally known as Cryolipolysis, this process cools the fat and destroys it.

During the procedure, you are positioned so that there is access to the target spot. The Coolsculpting device then cools the bulge between two panels. By cooling the bulge just above the freezing point, the fat cells of the body begin to shrink. This is because fat cells are very vulnerable to low temperatures.

The sensation of Coolsculpting is a mild tug or pull, with the feeling similar to when an ice pack is used on the skin. Plus, there is no need for anesthesia or pain medication. You can even read or nap while the procedure is done. Once completed after an hour or two, you can return to your normal lifestyle with no restrictions.

When Will I See Results?

We all want to see fast results, and with Coolsculpting you can begin to see changes to the treated area as soon as three weeks after treatment. The most dramatic results will follow at around two months, when your body is in full swing flushing away fat cells. This process could last up to four months post-procedure.

You won’t notice that the fat removal process is in effect, but you will see the treated area shrink in circumference over time. Of course, every person is different and so are their Coolsculpting results. Additional Coolsculpting may be performed to achieve even greater fat reduction.

Concerns about whether the fat will return are put to rest because fat will never deposit again in the area that was treated, nor is there a risk of fat migrating from another area. It is recommended, though, that you continue a sensible diet and exercise program to help keep your results optimal.

Who Can Have Coolsculpting?

Before determining if Coolsculpting is right for you, it is ideal to consult with a Coolsculpting professional, such as those at the Lasky Aesthetics and Laser Center in Beverly Hills. Coolsculpting is a good choice for body contouring and if you have apparent bulges or bumps that you would like reduced. It is also good if you prefer to avoid surgery and downtime.
