Are you sick of your stubborn pockets of fat and don’t know what to do? Many have been so frustrated with pockets of fat they have on their body that they use surgical procedures in order to get rid of them. It can be a little nerve-racking trying to make this important decision. This is especially true when looking at the potential risks that come from surgery. Thankfully, now there are non-invasive procedures that reduce fat on the body, such as CoolSculpting®.
If you are frustrated with pockets of fat on your body and you would like to get rid of them, you no longer have to consider surgery as an option. CoolSculpting® literally freezes away the fat and sculpts your body into something that you will feel proud to show off.
Interestingly, CoolSculpting® was discovered in a children’s hospital. Sick children who were in the hospital for an extended period of time were given a frozen treat on a regular basis and the children began to have a dimple in the area where the frozen treat was held. The cold from the frozen treat was killing the fat cells in the area where the frozen treat was being held in the mouth. This idea led to CoolSculpting®.
In addition to the fact that the procedure is non-invasive, it is also comfortable. There are no cuts made. There is no risk of scarring. There is no risk of infection. Your skin will feel cold to the touch when you are having the procedure done, but there will be no discomfort. During the procedure a specialized device will be placed on your treatment area. As treatment starts, you can relax and play with your phone, or even take a nap.
After the CoolSculpting® procedure is done, you must be patient. It takes time for the body to get rid of the fat cells that were killed during the process of being frozen. So you’re not going to see results immediately after the treatment. It takes around 2 to 4 months for you to notice the area that was treated becoming slimmer.
CoolSculpting® can be used to effectively treat your stubborn fat in your abdomen, love handles, thighs, arms, or back area.
