Have you been tossing around the idea of getting CoolSculpting® but aren’t sure if it really works or is right for you? You’re in luck! Here are four really great reasons to treat yourself to CoolSculpting this winter and take the first step to freezing away that stubborn belly bulge.
1. CoolSculpting Has Proven Results
CoolSculpting was the original nonsurgical body contouring treatment to hit the market, and the results show. The fat-freezing technology behind this treatment was developed by two Harvard scientists and remains the only FDA-cleared nonsurgical treatment to eliminate stubborn fat via controlled cooling technology.
So how does CoolSculpting work, exactly? This noninvasive procedure uses a process called cryolipolysis to freeze targeted fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissue. Those fat cells are then disabled and eliminated from your body over the next several weeks. The result is a slimmer, sleeker physique that’s often difficult achieve through traditional fat loss methods like diet and exercise on their own.
2. See Results in Time for Summer
Many people begin to notice results developing as soon as 3 weeks after CoolSculpting treatment.
CoolSculpting is pretty amazing, but it’ll still take some time for your results to fully develop. If you schedule your treatment in the winter, you’ll have plenty of time to see results by summer vacation. While you might start noticing that your clothes fit better and your body shape is improving in as little as 3 weeks after CoolSculpting, it can take up to 4 months to see your final results.
And the best part? Once you see your full results after CoolSculpting, they’re long-lasting. As long as you keep up with your same great healthy eating and exercise habits, you can enjoy your new body shape for years to come.
3. Don’t Sweat Downtime
One of the biggest drawbacks to surgical body contouring procedures is that they require significant downtime in order to recover and see results. Since CoolSculpting is nonsurgical, you won’t have to worry about scheduling time off work or other daily obligations afterwards.
As an added bonus, your treatment can take as little as 35 minutes, depending on the size and location of the targeted area. If you choose a provider who offers DualSculpting™, you can essentially cut your treatment time in half.
After your CoolSculpting session, you may experience some swelling, redness or tenderness in the first few days after your CoolSculpting treatment, but these side effects should gradually diminish on their own.
4. CoolSculpting Isn’t Just for Your Abdomen
The abdomen is one of the most popular areas to get CoolSculpting, but it’s by no means the only body part that this treatment works. Many people choose to get CoolSculpting on their upper arms, chin, back and thighs.
During your CoolSculpting consultation, discuss your goals and trouble spots with your provider. They should be able to create a customized treatment plan to suit your needs and goals. If you plan to treat several areas of your body, your provider may recommend splitting them up into multiple treatments, depending on the size and location of your problem areas.
While most people see excellent results after just 1 treatment session per area, your provider may recommend 2 sessions to maximize your results.
