CoolSculpting is a procedure where fat cells are frozen and eliminated using new technology. It doesn’t involve surgery, and it can reshape your once flabby body into something slimmer. Here are five tips to remember before getting CoolSculpting in Vancouver:
CoolSculpting is Safe and Effective
CoolSculpting is also known as cryolipolysis. It makes use of sub-zero temperatures to freeze the cells of the body to remove rigid hypodermal fat. The U.S. FDA has labeled it a safe and effective medical treatment.
There have been more than two million procedures done all over the world. There is also an 86% patient satisfaction rate with the methods. Also, a website review says 83% says the procedure was “worth it.”
What to Expect
During the procedure, a special tool is used to freeze the fat cells in your body. By freezing these cells, it crystallizes them and eventually dies. Afterward, the liver flushes out the dead fat cells. Because the procedure didn’t require surgery, you can go back to work or do your regular activities immediately. The procedure usually takes 35 minutes to an hour for each section of the body.
Results from the procedure are not instant. Our body needs time to flush off the dead fat cells. Usually, it takes a month (or less) up to three months to see some changes. You can expect a 20-25% fat reduction in the treated areas of your body. Keep in mind that results may vary depending on your body’s metabolism, or other factors.
Tone up where you need to
You will notice the excess skin from the areas where they did the procedure. Take advantage of it and do some toning exercise to build up muscle where your stubborn fat used to settle.
Any Side Effects?
You will experience very little aching, stinging, and delayed onset of pain. There will also be some swelling and bruising on sections of your body where they did the procedure.
CoolSculpting is not Liposuction
Liposuction involves surgery, unlike CoolSculpting. Although if you need to lose a large amount of fat (and lose weight), liposuction is the better alternative.
