CoolSculpting

What is body contouring?

Body contouring is a noninvasive method of altering the shape of your body by permanently eliminating fat cells. There are several techniques that can achieve that goal, some that rely on heat and others that rely on cold temperatures. They all create an environment that damages the structural integrity of fat cells, which causes them to release their stored fat and transform into cellular waste.

In years past the only treatment that could destroy or remove fat cells was liposuction. For many men and women, the invasive nature of lipo and the need for recovery time made the procedure unappealing. CoolSculpting body contouring offers a path to the body of your dreams without surgery, anesthesia, or downtime.

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a body contouring approach that relies on cold temperatures to destroy fat cells. The process, also called cryolipolysis, is safe, swift, and simple. Best of all, CoolSculpting delivers impressive results in the following areas.

  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Back
  • Upper arms
  • Beneath the chin
  • Beneath the buttocks

What happens during a CoolSculpting body contouring treatment?

When you arrive for your treatment at Best Impression Med Spa, your provider applies a layer of clear gel to protect your skin and secures a special applicator to the treatment site. You may notice sensations of tugging, pulling, or mild pinching in the treatment area.

Intense cold and mild stinging, tingling, or aching are also possible. All of these sensations will ease as the area numbs due to the cold temperature.

The applicator chills the targeted tissue to a temperature that freezes your fat cells. That renders as many as 20-25% of the treated cells incapable of storing fat. Those cells die and are processed by your lymphatic system over the following months. 

Is CoolSculpting a permanent solution?

The cells CoolSculpting destroys are eliminated from your body and do not regenerate. Your results will last as long as your body maintains the same basic weight and fitness level.

It’s important to understand, however, that your remaining fat cells will still be able to store fat, and can expand to accommodate impressive volumes of fat. If you consume many more calories than you burn throughout each day, you will gain weight, and your results will not remain stable.

CoolSculpting is a great approach for men and women who’ve achieved and maintained a healthy body weight, but who are troubled by lingering deposits of fat. To learn more about body contouring, book a consultation at Best Impression Med Spa today, online or by phone.
