If you feel unsatisfied with the shape and contour of your body, you may be thinking about using a fat reduction or contouring treatment. There are many non-surgical options available. CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical treatment that can eliminate fat in many areas on the body. However, you may be wondering if fat freezing is the right option for you.
The process behind fat freezing is called cryolipolysis. Without cutting or harming the skin, the fat under it can be frozen. When the fat cells freeze, they become damaged. The body then goes to work removing those damaged fat cells. For some individuals, the idea of being able to freeze away fat may seem too good to be true. However, it has been able to help many individuals get rid of unwanted fat on their abdomen, hips, and thighs.
How Long Does It Take to See Results?
It is good for individuals to know that this is not a treatment that provides immediate results. It takes time for the body to get rid of the damaged fat cells. Most individuals who opt for fat freezing are able to see start to see results about three weeks from the time they do their initial treatment. For many individuals, this is something desirable considering that it is discrete and may appear to others to be natural weight loss.
Since the fat cells have been damaged and eliminated, they cannot return. However, it is important for a person to maintain a healthy lifestyle after their CoolSculpting® treatment. You need to exercise regularly and consume a healthy diet. If you do not, the fat cells that remain in the areas where treatment was performed can grow, leading to weight gain. Many have found that fat freezing provides just the boost they need in order to stick with a healthy lifestyle.
