CoolSculpting® is the only non-surgical, FDA-approved technology that uses applicators to freeze fat away. The providers at Persona Medical Spa oftentimes recommend this to individuals who want to eliminate their fat rolls and bulges without having to undergo traditional liposuction surgery, which entails a prolonged recovery.
How CoolSculpting® Can Freeze Fat Away
CoolSculpting® is based on cryolipolysis technology, which targets and kills the fat cells by bringing down their temperature. It should be noted that fat freezes at a higher temperature than skin and other tissues, which means the process is safe and can freeze fat away. Within weeks of the treatment, your body will naturally flush out the dead fat cells through its metabolic processes.
Impressive Safety Record
The applicators have built-in safety measures that include sensors that will shut down the system should it detect that the skin is getting too cold. To further eliminate the risk of any issues, our provider can protect your skin with gel pads. Moreover, CoolSculpting® is only performed under the supervision of a qualified professional.
The device is FDA-cleared for the treatment of fat bulges in various areas. Many other non-surgical fat reduction technologies, meanwhile, are only approved to treat the tummy.
Freezing Your Fat Away
As the applicators freeze fat away, most patients feel an intense cold that quickly dissipates just minutes before the treated area goes numb for the rest of the treatment. It has been reported that many patients have watched videos, worked on their laptop, and read a book during the procedure.
The technique does not entail an actual recovery. As a non-surgical body contouring treatment, you can immediately resume your normal activities without any problem. The zero-downtime factor is one of the most notable benefits of CoolSculpting®. Liposuction and other surgery-based body contouring techniques, meanwhile, usually entail a recovery.
Once your body has completely flushed out the dead cells, it can’t produce new ones. So basically, the results of CoolSculpting® are near permanent, provided that you maintain a healthy weight range.
