CoolSculpting Boca Raton
Let’s be honest: Trying to target stubborn fat in a specific area of your body can be incredibly hard. A lot of people find that dieting and exercise are great for getting rid of a majority of the excess fat around their body, but when it comes to trying to refine the natural contours of the body, traditional methods of fat reduction might not be able to cut it.
While surgical options like liposuction do exist, surgery is not for everyone. So what do you do if you need help redefining your figure without going under the knife? You can try CoolSculpting, the next step in non-surgical and non-invasive fat reduction and body contouring.
CoolSculpting Is Safe and Incredibly Effective
CoolSculpting is a revolutionary FDA-approved procedure designed to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat in areas around the body without the need for a single incision. This means that you don’t need to worry about wasting your time in bed waiting for your incisions to heal and your body to recover.
CoolSculpting has made getting rid of your unwanted body fat easier, quicker, and much more comfortable. The key to the outstanding results that CoolSculpting is able to provide lies in its unique approach to fat reduction.
How the CoolSculpting Procedure Works
You have probably heard the phrase “burn fat” hundreds of times throughout your life. With CoolSculpting, you’re not burning fat, you’re freezing it. The CoolSculpting device is equipped with an applicator and several different contour frames that are designed to fit the contours of different areas of the body.
A gel pad is placed on the desired treatment area, followed by the applicator. The applicator gently suctions the tissue to create a tight seal and to target the area better. The applicator then begins to emit cold temperature that rapidly cools down the targeted tissue.
The cold emitted by the applicator affects different tissues in different ways. Skin and muscle tissue are not damaged by CoolSculpting. Fat cells are not so lucky. When exposed to the extreme cold produced by CoolSculpting, the fat cells begin to freeze and crystallize.
The crystallized fat cells die. Once dead, the fat cells are naturally absorbed by the body and expelled. This means that your CoolSculpting results will become more apparent over time as the fat cells are destroyed and expelled. Because the fat cells are completely destroyed, they can no longer expand over time, which means your results will be long-lasting.
Different Applicators Make CoolSculpting Incredibly Versatile
One of the greatest things about CoolSculpting is that the technology behind the treatment is constantly adapting and new devices are always on the horizon. Here are some of the applicators and their unique uses:
The CoolMini Applicator is one of the greatest things CoolSculpting has in its arsenal. This applicator is very compact, which makes it perfect for treating smaller and more delicate areas.
In fact, the CoolMini is your ideal choice for getting rid of that pesky double chin that you have been struggling with. If you want a defined chin and jawline with a beautifully contoured neck, the CoolMini is for you.
CoolAdvantage is the latest breakthrough in CoolSculpting technology. The CoolAdvantage features a new and improved cup design that actually makes treatment times much shorter.
With the CoolAdvantage, you can treat an area that used to take 60 minutes in just 35 minutes – and destroy more fat cells in that shorter amount of time. The applicator can also easily handle larger areas of the body, making it even easier to attain the results you are looking for. This new technology is able to treat more of an area than the older hand-pieces and is much more comfortable. So you will get better results in less time!
- +Are You an Ideal Candidate for CoolSculpting?
The CoolSculpting treatment is ideal for both men and women who have fatty areas that simply will not respond to diet or exercise.
- +When Will I See Results?
You may begin to see changes in your body as quickly as three weeks after your first treatment. You will experience the most dramatic changes after three to four months. Your body is still flushing fat cells during that time and will continue doing so for four to six months after treatment.
During your consultation with Dr. Allenby, the top provider of CoolSculpting treatments in the Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale areas, she will create a treatment plan to meet your specific needs.
- +Are the Results Permanent?
During CoolSculpting, the treated fat cells are filtered out of the body. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, long-term results should remain stable.
- +Is CoolSculpting Safe?
Unlike other methods of fat reduction, CoolSculpting involves no needles, surgery, or downtime. Patients often spend their procedure time reading, working on their laptops, or simply relaxing.
CoolSculpting is safe, FDA-cleared, and effective.¬¬ Results look natural and can be seen as early as two months after treatment, with the most dramatic results after three to four months.
- +Can I Return to My Normal Activities After My Procedure?
CoolSculpting is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, numbness, or discomfort in the treated area, but this is temporary and will resolve completely. Often, patients can return to work after the session is over.
- +How Long Is Each Treatment? How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Treatment time can range from 35 minutes to 75 minutes, depending on the hand-piece used. We are proud to offer CoolAdvantage, which has reduced most of the treatments to 35 minutes.
The number of cycles and sessions needed is determined during your personalized consultation. Your body will be evaluated from head to toe, and a complete treatment-to-transformation plan will be created based on your concerns and desires, partnered with our expertise and experience.
- +What Does It Feel Like?
During your treatment, a CoolSculpting hand-piece will be placed on the area of concern. At first, you will feel a slight suction. After a couple of minutes, the area will start to feel cooler.
It will become colder for about seven to ten minutes and then you will be numb for the remainder of your treatment. After the treatment, the area will be massaged to ensure the best outcome possible. You may experience some discomfort during this two-minute process.
- +Can I Return to My Normal Activities After My Treatment?
Yes, you can! There is no downtime after your CoolSculpting procedure. Many go back to work that same day.
- +Do I Need to Take Special Supplements or Follow a Strict Diet and Exercise Program?
CoolSculpting is designed to work for patients who are already living a healthy lifestyle. While participation in any kind of diet or exercise program is not required, any extra work you do will only help!
