Many people have areas of stubborn body fat that seem resistant to diet and exercise. Often developing around the legs and abdomen, persistent body fat can be discouraging to those who work hard to stay in shape. But now there is a non-surgical solution: CoolSculpting.
Coolsculpting is a procedure that is FDA-approved to eliminate stubborn body fat. It involves using a cooling device to crystallize the fat cells in the target area. This causes the fat cells to die. Once the fat cells die, the body will naturally eliminate them, leaving you with tighter skin.

Many cosmetic procedures today require incisions and needles. However, CoolSculpting is completely non-invasive and non-surgical. You will not be left with any punctures or scars. You will also be able to return to your normal activities after your procedure has been completed. In fact, many patients go to work right after their procedure is over. There is virtually no downtime or recovery needed.
Coolsculpting is also a very safe procedure. It does not require the use of incisions or anesthesia, so the chances of developing adverse side effects are extremely rare. Temporary side effects includes things such as firmness, tingling and swelling in the treatment area. Those side effects are mild and typically go away within a few months of treatment.
Visible changes will be noticed within a few weeks of getting this procedure. The most dramatic results are typically seen after one to three months. In most cases, the results improve for four to six months after treatment. This procedure not only helps people reduce their body fat, but it can also help them lose inches in the target area. The average person loses two to four inches in the target area after getting CoolSculpting.
Coolsculpting is able to give you long-lasting results. However, it is important that lifestyle choices affect how long the results of this procedure will last. You can maintain the results of this procedure by exercising and eating right. Many people feel compelled to start taking better care of themselves after getting CoolSculpting.
Not a Painful Procedure
Many people are concerned about the pain of cosmetic procedures. However, CoolSculpting is not a painful procedure. You will probably feel some intense cool a couple of minutes after the device is applied. If you experience any discomfort, a topical anesthetic can be applied. Many people are able to do other things during their procedure, such as work on their laptop or read.
