The obsession to lose weight continues to be a trend that may appear to be taking up. Whether it’s going to the gym or reverting to plastic surgery, every person has their reasons for choosing the route they’ve decided to go down to achieve their goals.
Another form of weight loss treatment that’s come to light is Coolsculpting, a form of aesthetic treatment that helps to rid the loose skin that may have formed around the body. It truly is a great alternative for those who may be a bit worried about going through a traditional form of weight loss surgery. However, with all good things, there are some cons that you should still consider after having Coolsculpting treatment so here’s some more detail about the treatment before you go ahead and try it.
What Is Coolsculpting?
As mentioned, Coolsculpting is a non-surgical procedure that uses state of the art aesthetic technology to freeze fat cells away and provide a toned appearance to the relevant area. There are several areas on the body that can be treated through a Coolsculpting procedure including the stomach, waist and buttock area. The applicator is placed on the chosen area and using a sucking motion, it’ll vacuum the skin whilst cooling the area. What’s convenient about the treatment is it’s rather straightforward and can be relatively quick depending on the area you’ve chosen to be treated. You should expect the treatment to last for around an hour, so all you’d need to do is sit back and let it do all the work.
What Are The Pros of Coolsculpting Treatments?
Considering the type of treatment that Coolsculping is, it has many pros as a cosmetic procedure. This is why it’s no surprise it’s such a popular procedure choice for many. Here is a run through of the most common benefits that it can offer:
- As the procedure is so straightforward, you can easily have it done in the comfort of a doctor’s office. This saves you a trip to a local hospital and you can also consider doing it on your lunch break as it’s only for an hour.
- Although the treatment essentially sucks up your skin, the treatment is relatively painless. All you’d expect to feel is the sucking motion of the vacuum and the cold sensation on the area that’s being treated.
- No downtime is required, which means you can have the procedure done relatively quickly and continue with your normal routine. This means you don’t have to worry about bandages or taking extra care of any wounds.
- You’re sure to be impressed by the Coolscupting treatment results. There will be a few sessions required depending on the amount of fat that you wish to be removed, but the results are rather consistent. Having a consistent exercise routine and healthy diet is sure to maintain the results.
What Are The Side Effects?
Before undergoing surgery, there are also some side effects that you should consider. These are side effects that people have complained about in the past after they’ve had the treatment:
– Sensation in the targeted area
It’s worth noting that these side effects are only temporary and shouldn’t prevent you from continuing with your daily routine. Excessive complications such as damaging muscle tissues or skin cells won’t be possible as the treatment doesn’t require incisions.
Are There Any Extreme Side Effects?
As well as common side effects, there can be rare occasions where patients also witness problems that are more severe. These can include:
– A painful sensation felt around the area
– Skin becoming numb
– Area of contact becomes bloated
As mentioned though, these are quite rare.
As with any procedure that you go through, it’s always important to go through consultation for your fat freezing treatment. A medical professional will be able to take you through all the details about your treatment, the potential side effects and what results could be achieved. There are several factors that you can consider before choosing the right specialist to help conduct your treatment, just make sure it’s the right one for you.
