Exercise and diet can take you to a place where you start feeling anxious when you fail to lose that last few pounds and that last couple of inches. This anxiousness leads to stress, and you end up gaining weight instead. With the extra weight, your fat increases. Losing weight might be easy. But losing a few inches around your waist may prove to be difficult.

There are several invasive and non-invasive treatments to lose the fat in your body. The invasive procedure includes liposuction where the fat is surgically removed from your body. The non-invasive methods include radiofrequency, laser therapy, ultrasound and cryolipolysis.

WHAT IS COOLSCULPTING?

CoolSculpting is the product name for the non-invasive fat reduction technique called cryolipolysis. It is also called ‘fat freezing’. When you lose or gain weight, it does not increase or decrease your fat cells. When you lose weight, your fat cells become smaller, but they do not reduce in number.

CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical, non-invasive fat reduction treatment that uses the cryolipolysis method for freezing the stubborn fat in your body. CoolSculpting helps contour your body by reducing those stubborn fats that refuse to burn with diet and exercise. It is not a treatment for obesity.

HOW DOES COOLSCULPTING WORK?

Before the treatment begins, you will be briefed through the treatment procedure. All your questions and doubts will be answered to your satisfaction. A treatment plan will be worked out based on your needs. The treatment starts with a gel pad and applicator being applied to the area which delivers controlled cooling to the targeted fat. The intense cold feeling subsides as the area numbs. Applicators use a vacuum to draw the fatty tissue. You may experience some mild pinching and tugging. The device is then positioned on your body, and controlled cooling is applied.

Fat cells in your body freeze at high temperature. CoolSculpting precisely targets the fat cells beneath the skin. It is cooled to a temperature that triggers a natural death. As fat cells crystalize faster, there is no damage to the skin. Your body metabolizes the dead fat cells and eliminates them. While diet and exercise can help you reduce the fat cells, they cannot be permanently destroyed. CoolSculpting helps you get rid of the fat cells. The results of this treatment can be seen within a week or two after treatment.

AM I A CANDIDATE FOR COOLSCULPTING?

Allergy Skin Spa will advise against this treatment if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia, cold agglutinin disease, or paroxysmal cold haemoglobinuria. You can get back to normal activities immediately after the procedure. The risk of side effects and complications depend on the medical professional performing this procedure. Dr. Kianoush Shakib at Allergy Skin Spa is a certified physician who specializes in non-surgical cosmetic procedures. It is normal to experience numbness, redness, minor swelling, pinching sensation, tingling, and mild to moderate pain in the area treated. These side effects subside within a week or two, leaving you with a sculpted body.

WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT FROM COOLSCULPTING?

Patients have reported seeing changes as quickly as 3 weeks after treatment. The most dramatic results are reported to occur after 2 months. The natural process of the body will be to flush out fat cells for 4 to 6 months following the CoolSculpting procedure.

CoolSculpting is non-surgical, and patients normally are able to return to their regular activities immediately following treatment. Patients can return to work the same day after completing their CoolSculpting treatment.
