Pretty much everyone has heard of liposuction. It’s probably the most famous fat reduction procedure on the market, the only problem is it is a surgical procedure. Many men and women don’t have the available time to take off for a surgical procedure, or they don’t want to undergo something so extensive. If you are one of those people, then we invite you to consider a non-surgical fat reduction option: CoolSculpting®.

CoolSculpting® is a completely non-surgical and non-invasive fat reduction treatment that can be done in as little as 60 minutes. It requires no downtime, which makes it the perfect option for someone who doesn’t have a lot of time to spare. It also does not require any anesthetic or sedation, so you can drive yourself to and from the treatment.

The results from CoolSculpting® are dramatic, but they can take up to three months to appear. This is because of the non-invasive nature of the treatment. The device lowers the temperature of the fat cells to a point where they crystallize and die off, which leaves you with a sculpted and toned body. It takes some time for your body to flush the dead fat cells away, which is why the visible results are delayed.

This non-surgical fat reduction treatment was discovered by a few doctors who observed children sucking on popsicles. These children gradually developed dimples, which causes the doctors to realize the popsicles were effectively killing the fat cells in the children’s cheeks. The CoolSculpting® device was then developed, and it was later cleared by the FDA for use in fat reduction.

Good candidates for this treatment include individuals who are not overweight, but who have extra fat in a few stubborn areas. Common areas that are treated include:

  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Arms
  • Thighs
  • Double chin

The results from your non-surgical fat reduction procedure are permanent, as the frozen fat cells won’t grow back. It is, however, important to maintain a healthy lifestyle after your treatment if you want to keep your contoured look. The fat cells that are not frozen by the treatment can still grow in size, which would somewhat negate the effects of the treatment.

If you are someone who is looking to sculpt and contour your body without the need for downtime or surgery, then this treatment is perfect for you!
