There’s no magic bullet when it comes to fat removal, but Coolsculpting comes pretty close. We get a lot of inquiries about everything from what the procedure actually entails to what makes someone a suitable candidate, so we’ve decided to share the answers with everyone here in this post.
What Does Coolsculpting Involve?
Coolscupting is a non-surgical produced that permanently freezes fat to contour your body without surgery. There is no downtime involved and it’s a relatively painless procedure. Once you’ve chosen the areas to be treated, your technician will use the Coolsculpting device to crystalise and kill off the fat cells. The dead cells are then naturally processed and eliminated by your body over the next 2 – 4 months, which reduces the amount of fat in each area.
Does Coolsculpting Really Offer Permanent Results?
Yes. Similar fat loss treatments may “shrink” fat cells which means they can expand again in the future, but Coolsculpting destroys the cells instead. Once Coolsculpting has targeted and destroyed fat cells in the treated area, your body will not remake those particular cells. However, it’s worth noting that the remaining fat cells can expand or shrink in accordance with your diet and exercise regime, so it’s important to stay healthy and active for long-lasting results overall.
Does It Hurt?
This procedure may cause discomfort but patients rarely feel any significant pain. At the beginning of the treatment you will experience an intense cold and a feeling of pressure, but doesn’t last very long. Some patients have even reported falling asleep during the procedure!
Is Coolsculpting Safe?
Yes. No needles are used and no incisions are made. This procedure destroys only the targeted fat cells and no damage is caused to the skin or any other organs.
Am I A Good Candidate?
A consult with one of our expert technicians here at Lipstick Empire, Edmonton is essential in order to provide a definitive answer on this. However, this product is usually a good solution if you have noticeable bulges in certain areas and/or have pockets of unwanted fat that’s resistant to exercise and diet protocols. Coolsculpting is not a sound option for a candidate who is obese.
When Will The Results Begin To Show?
You may see changes to your body in as little as three weeks following your treatment, however, the most significant changes will be evident two months when the majority of fat cells have been flushed out of your body. Further improvements can occur for up to six months following your treatment as the fat cells continue to be flushed.
