Since 2014, CoolSculpting® has been FDA-approved as a nonsurgical body contouring treatment to slim down the abdomen, love handles, thighs and double chin and since then, has delivered beautiful results to thousands of people.
Now, the FDA has approved CoolSculpting® for treatment of additional problem areas including the back, making it a wonderful way to treat and eliminate the dreaded bra bulge.
How It Works
CoolSculpting® utilizes a revolutionary fat freezing technology to permanently destroy fat cells below the skin’s surface to create a more sculpted you. In months following the treatment (10 to 12 weeks to be exact) the dead fat cells are processed and naturally eliminated by the body, leaving the treatment area slimmer and smoother.
CoolSculpting® is an ideal solution for those who have fat pockets that are resistant to diet and exercise and are looking for a noninvasive option to fat reduction.
The Battle of the Bulge
The abdomen and love handles are common problem areas for most people when it comes to stubborn fat pockets. The back however, can also store excess fat pockets, which can ultimately become bulges thanks to bra straps and bands. Liposuction is one option for eliminating fat in this area, but with the new FDA-approval for CoolSculpting® of the bra roll, women have a new, nonsurgical option for a smoother, slimmer backside.
What to Expect
How the body responds after CoolSculpting® varies from person to person. However, a majority of people experience a 20 to 30 percent reduction of fat in the treated area with final results visible within 10-12 weeks.
With regard to downtime, the CoolSculpting® procedure is completely non-surgical and for that reason, people typically return to normal activities (including work) right afterward.
Subsequent to the procedure, it is common to experience redness in the treated areas for a couple of hours once the applicator is removed. In some cases, mild bruising and numbness may occur but will subside in a few days.
