7 Benefits of CoolSculpting
There are many reasons to choose CoolSculpting if you are interested in a body contouring procedure. The best option for each patient will vary depending on your needs, so it’s important to schedule a consultation with a plastic surgeon like Dr. Coan at CARE Plastic Surgery. However, here are seven benefits of CoolSculpting that just about any patient can enjoy.
Targeted Fat Reduction
CoolSculpting and traditional, natural weight loss work in different ways. When you lose weight through diet and exercise, you can’t target specific areas for your body to burn fat. This means that many people who stick with healthy and active lifestyles will still have frustrating, stubborn fat deposits that disrupt the body contour they are working hard to achieve.
CoolSculpting, on the other hand, allows you to target your fat loss. You can choose to reduce fat in specific areas. During your procedure, the CoolSculpting applicator is applied directly to the intended treatment area, where it will precisely cool and damage the fat cells that you want to get rid of.
Lower Cost Compared to Surgery
When you consider your body contouring options, liposuction is most likely to come to mind first. Depending on your needs, other surgeries like a tummy tuck, arm lift, or thigh lift may also be an option. However, these procedures tend to be more expensive than a non-surgical procedure like CoolSculpting. During a consultation at CARE Plastic Surgery, you can review all of your body contouring options to determine which procedure is best suited for your needs, including your budget.
Low Risk Treatment
While plastic surgery is safe overall, there are some risks involved. This includes potential complications like infection, visible scarring, or other issues. As a non-surgical procedure, CoolSculpting has far fewer risks. There are no incisions or anesthesia necessary, which makes the procedure safer overall.
Side effects after CoolSculpting are minimal and include temporary numbness or redness in the treatment area. These subside quickly and no downtime is required following your CoolSculpting procedure.
Effective Body Contouring Results
CoolSculpting is a relatively new technology compared to other treatment options, which leaves many people questioning whether it really works. You can review before-and-after photos to see other patients’ results, but should also know that the treatment has undergone trials and studies to prove its effectiveness. The FDA approved CoolSculpting in 2010, and trials have shown excellent results for patients worldwide.
Perfect for Busy Schedules
CoolSculpting makes a great alternative to body contouring surgery for those with busy schedules. While procedures like liposuction require downtime for you to heal before returning to your normal routine, CoolSculpting requires none. Despite some mild and temporary ide effects like redness or numbness, you can return to your daily routine immediately after CoolSculpting treatment.
The CoolSculpting procedure can also be completed quickly. Most sessions take about 30 minutes to an hour to complete. During this time, you can also complete other items on your to-do list, like checking emails or reading.
Because CoolSculpting does not require incisions, there are no scars involved. This means that you can enjoy the results of your body contouring treatment without worrying about hiding scars. Instead, you can feel confident in any outfit or swimsuit.
Treat Many Areas
CoolSculpting is a great option for many treatment areas. This includes popular choices like the abdomen, thighs, flanks, back, or upper arms. Some patients even choose CoolSculpting to treat their “double chin” by targeting the neck area.
