What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting, which is also known as cryolipolysis, is a non-surgical form of body contouring that can target and eliminate stubborn fat that you have otherwise been unable to lose. CoolSculpting works by targeting fat cells in the treated area to give it a more slim and contoured appearance. It is a non-invasive treatment which carries less risk than other, more invasive forms of weight loss and is a very safe procedure with few side effects.
CoolSculpting works by using freezing temperatures to break down and kill fat cells; the cold temperatures used during treatment do not damage the surrounding cells and tissues, and so there is no damage to the skin or any underlying tissue. CoolSculpting works by vacuuming the skin above the treated area, which draws the tissue into an applicator that cools the fat cells, which then die and are eliminated naturally by the body.
Generally, a CoolSculpting appointment will last approximately an hour, although the length of treatment will be determined by a number of factors including the location being treated. And since there is no damage to the surrounding skin or underlying tissue, there is no required downtime after treatment; making it an effective and safe alternative to more traditional, invasive methods of fat loss and removal.
Is CoolSculpting effective?
CoolSculpting has a high success rate and is very effective at removing stubborn fat from areas of the body that may prove difficult to lose weight from. CoolSculpting has few side-effects – especially in comparison to other treatments, like liposuction. It is important to note that you will likely see the full results of CoolSculpting treatment in two to four months, although you will likely notice an improvement sooner.
It is important to note that, while very effective at dealing with fat, CoolSculpting is not a solution to lose skin or cellulite. However, CoolSculpting is a very effective and affordable option for those looking to eliminate an extra bit of weight that is stubbornly clinging on.
How much does CoolSculpting cost?
Although CoolSculpting may not give you the dramatic results of surgery, it will still give you an improvement and will help you lose that stubborn body fat that diet and exercise cannot seem to lose. The price of a CoolSculpting treatment is determined by the number of applicators used, so treatment costs will vary depending on the area(s) being treated and how much area is being treated. The average cost of treating a single area is usually around $2000.
