Coolsculpting® is a fat reduction technique that works by freezing fat cells in your body. Your fat cells do not like the cold and at lower temperatures, they will freeze. Once that happens, your body will naturally eliminate the dead cells in 1-3 months. Each Coolsculpting session will result in a 20%-25% reduction of fat in a treated area.
The system works by treating target areas of fat inside a cooling device that slowly lowers the temperature throughout the treatment session. Fat freezes at a much warmer temperature than the water in the skin. Coolsculpting is able to get rid of fat cells without harming our skin in the treatment areas.
Colorado Skin & Vein patients won’t see any effects immediately. However, over 1-3 months the body will process the dead fat cells and remove them naturally, leaving your physique looking and feeling more slim and toned.
Freeze Fat with Coolsculpting®
With Coolsculpting®, you can freeze fat. It is not a weight-loss treatment but rather a fat reduction technique that you can use to target stubborn pockets of fat on your body that won’t respond to diet and exercise alone.
Benefits of Coolsculpting®
At Colorado Skin & Vein, we identify a range of Coolsculpting® benefits.
Many fat loss techniques are invasive and rely on making an incision on the body. Tummy tucks and liposuction, for instance, puncture the skin, necessitating recovery time.
However, Coolsculpting® is different. Instead, it delivers cooling action through the skin without damaging it in any way, relying on the body’s fat recycling systems to reduce the volume of the pocket of fat over time.
So many fat reduction techniques require downtime for the patient to recover, but Coolsculpting® is different. After a session, you’re able to return to your regular schedule immediately without having to wait.
You may feel a slight decrease of sensation or tingling in the target area following treatment, but this will fade quickly. Over the following weeks, the body’s immune system will clear away old fat cells, leaving the fat pocket appearing reduced.
Coolsculpting® offers real results. You can expect around a quarter reduction in fat volume over the following weeks and months, with the results looking completely natural. The body’s immune system processes dead cells on the micro-scale, creating a smooth, even effect across the entire area that is treated.
