If your attempts have done nothing to budge your pockets of stubborn fat, you might be a perfect candidate for non-invasive body sculpting. CoolSculpting® is the most effective way to reduce fat in targeted areas without surgery. It helps you achieve your desired shape and definition without taking time out of your life to meet your goals.
How Does CoolSculpting® Work for Body Sculpting?
CoolSculpting® works by lowering the temperature of your skin and underlying fat until the fat cells start to freeze. Skin cells remain unaffected at this temperature, but fat cells begin to crystallize and break down. Your lymphatic system filters away the remnants of these cells for removal from the body over several weeks.
What Happens During a CoolSculpting® Session?
Your CoolSculpting® session begins with a pre treatment wipe and gel pad applied to the treatment area. Your Chill at Willow expert places the proper applicators on your skin, and treatment begins. You will feel some cold and tingling at first, but the skin rapidly goes numb, preventing you from feeling discomfort. Most people relax and play on their phones or check emails during the 30-60 minute session.
How Long Does it Take to See CoolSculpting® Results?
Because CoolSculpting® is non-invasive, it relies on your body to remove the damaged fat cells. This process can show results within about three weeks, with final results after three months. CoolSculpting® removes up to 25% of targeted fat with each treatment.
Your treated fat cells will never grow back, leaving the area slimmer and more sculpted. However, if your weight changes, the fat cells that remain in the area can still expand, altering the appearance of your results. With a generally healthy lifestyle, CoolSculpting® results last a lifetime.
Is There Any Downtime After CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® requires no downtime, and you can return to your usual activities. Your provider will massage the treated area, which helps your body remove the damaged fat. People occasionally notice redness, numbness, tingling, or sensitivity that fades within a few days. You can resume your daily routine, including exercise, on the day of treatment.
Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting®?
Non-invasive CoolSculpting® is safe for all skin types and tones. Most people make good candidates for this body sculpting treatment. People who are near their target weight will typically achieve the best results. You might not be a good candidate for CoolSculpting® if you have an active skin condition, broken skin in the treatment area, or a medical condition that makes you sensitive to cold.
