CoolSculpting fat freezing: Is this the right body contouring treatment for you?

Posted by October 7th, 2019 in News

Who doesn’t want the perfect body all around, right? Sometimes, all the exercising and dieting in the world won’t trim that stubborn fat pocket on your body. Whether it’s from your pregnancy a few months ago, or it’s some leftover fat from your weight loss regimen, no repeated pinches can remove that pocket of fat from where it is. Of course, that’s where CoolSculpting fat freezing treatment comes along.

One of the most popular forms of noninvasive cosmetic body procedures is the body contouring treatment. CoolSculpting fat freezing is one of those. The basic gist of CoolSculpting is that it uses a machine to freeze the fat cells underneath the skin. Once frozen, then it’s only a matter of time before the body processes these frozen dead fat cells. And by then, after months of continuous treatments, you can get that trimmed body you wish to achieve.

However, unlike most body contouring treatments, CoolSculpting fat freezing has its caveats. As such, not everybody can avail of this kind of cosmetic procedure. So, before signing up for one near you, ask yourself the following questions first.

1. Do I have any medical conditions?

Since CoolSculpting fat freezing involves the freezing of fatty cells, it’s not recommended for anyone with medical conditions affected by freezing temperatures. Examples of these include cryoglobulinemia, cold agglutinin disease, or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. It’s also advised to tell your doctor whether you had recent surgeries, pre-existing hernia, and other medical conditions such as active infection, active localized skin infections in the areas of treatment, non-healing ulcers in the general area of treatment, uncontrolled diabetes, active liver disease, etc.

2. Do I want weight loss?

People often confuse CoolSculpting fat freezing as the latest fad when it comes to weight loss procedures. The truth is that it’s not a weight loss procedure from the get-go. CoolSculpting fat freezing aims to, in a sense, eradicate small pockets of fat. In other words, you lose fat from this procedure, not your weight. It is not a substitute for liposuction or a tummy tuck or other kinds of weight loss procedures.

3. Which areas can CoolSculpting reduce fat?

CoolSculpting fat freezing can help trim the fat cells in your outer or inner thighs; visible fat bulges under the chin; the abdomen, love handles, flanks, under the arm, and bra fat, among other body parts.

4. Is this procedure safe?

CoolSculpting fat freezing is an FDA-approved procedure. This means the Federal government has already deemed it safe to be done on people as long as the limitations of the procedures are observed. Any change of appearance made by CoolSculpting due to the treatment of visible fat bulges under the chin is FDA-cleared as well.
