Even if you work out regularly and eat healthily, there is no assurance that you will get a perfect body.
Stubborn fat cells in the abdomen, arms, thigh, hips, and chin may not be responsive to exercise. An effective way to get rid of them without going under the knife is through fat freeze treatment.
Fat freeze treatment is also known as Cryolipolysis, a body sculpting procedure that uses cold temperatures to kill fat cells.
The procedure was approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) in 2012. Since then, the procedure has been done over 4,000,000 times around the world.
The procedure is very popular because it is non-invasive, painless, and doesn’t require anesthesia.
If you are considering signing up for it but aren’t sure what to expect, this article is for you. Read on to get a sneak peek of everything that goes on during a fat freezing treatment session.
What happens during a fat freezing procedure?
During the session, your aesthetic expert or doctor will use a handheld device with an applicator somewhat similar to a vacuum cleaner’s nozzle.
To commence the treatment, your aesthetic expert will apply a gel pad and the nozzle of the Coolsculpting device in the targeted area. The device will gradually cool the affected area. After a while, the professional will move the device to other trouble areas.
Clinics with multiple machines can treat different areas at the same time.
While the nozzle of the machine is on your skin, you are going to experience a pinching or pulling sensation. While this may be uncomfortable, it isn’t painful.
The aesthetic expert will vigorously massage the targeted area after the treatment to break up frozen tissues. This will make it easier for your body to eliminate the dead fat cells.
On average, the treatment may last from 1 to 3 hours. During this time, you can listen to music, operate your phone or computer, or read a book.
Which area can fat freezing treatment help target?
Coolsculpting can help eliminate stubborn fat cells in the following areas.
- inner and upper thighs
- Under the buttocks
- Love handles
- Lower and upper abdomen
What to expect after a fat freezing treatment?
Fat freeze treatment has zero downtime. So you can resume your daily activity after the procedure. Redness, mild swelling, bruises, and a few other side effects which patients may experience after the procedure will subside after a couple of days or weeks.
The treated area will begin to become more defined two to three weeks after the procedure. The result is going to be more and more noticeable every day that passes. It may take between 3 to 6 months for your body to completely eliminate the dead fat cells.
Note that you may need several treatment sessions to achieve your desired results.
Coolsculpting is one of the most effective non-surgical procedures to get rid of stubborn fat. If you are considering signing up for it, you should consult your doctor before making a final decision.
If you are given the go-ahead to undergo the procedure, you should make adequate preparations before the day of your appointment.
