CoolSculpting is a fat-freezing, fat reduction procedure that has created a lot of buzz in recent years, because of its success in treating stubborn fat such as love handles and bra bulges. So people are now asking – Can CoolSculpting really help slim my waistline.
Can CoolSculpting really help slim my waistline
CoolSculpting is designed to reduce small amounts of fat around the abdomen and flanks, so this makes it a great option for slimming the waistline. It uses proven controlled cooling technology to target stubborn pockets of subcutaneous fat.
CoolSculpting is capable of eliminating about 20% of fat in the treated area. However, the procedure is not designed for people that have large amounts of fat to remove.
How it works
The CoolSculpting applicator is placed on the area being treated, and quickly sucks in the skin and fat. The device then cools the fat to a specific temperature that causes them to crystallize. The fat cells that are destroyed are naturally drained from the body over time.
A single treatment lasts for about one hour, and it may take one or two treatments to get optimal results.
CoolSculpting is minimally invasive, so there is no downtime. However, there may be some redness and bruising post-procedure, but these side-effects are temporary.
CoolSculpting works, but it’s not the right treatment for everyone, so you should consult with a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon, to find out if you’re a good candidate.
