Just when we thought CoolSculpting couldn’t get any cooler, turns out that it can, not only freeze out the fat from our bodies but also improve the appearance of loose skin. The CoolSculpting procedure is carried out using an FDA-approved non-invasive fat freezing device that ‘improves the appearance of lax tissue’ in and around the under-chin area.
Many of us have dealt with sagging skin as a consequence of sudden weight loss. CoolSculpting is an excellent option for those who want to tighten the skin without going through invasive surgery.
However, it is essential to understand that this procedure is not a substitute for liposuction. It cannot lead to dramatic weight loss. Instead, it is the ideal fat reduction procedure for those fighting the last few stubborn pounds. Sometimes, the body hangs onto these pockets of fat making them resistant to diet and exercise. This fat-busting procedure comes to the rescue.
Body contouring isn’t a new concept. In fact, CoolSculpting was introduced in 2010. Since then it is changing the way men and women achieve their target weights and get rid of excess stubborn fat. It can be done on pretty much any part of the body and offers quick and definitive results. The procedure is FDA approved so you can rest assured that it is entirely safe for healthy adult individuals.
Loose the Loose Skin – How CoolSculpting Works
This technology takes a brand new approach to an old problem. It makes spot reduction possible in key areas of the body. CoolSculpting technology uses a technique called
The first step of this process is ensuring cell death or Apoptosis. The CoolSculpting apparatus destroys the layers of fat cells stored under the skin using freezing temperatures. The body metabolizes these fat cells and gets rid of them for good. This is a long-winding process though. It goes on for 3 to 4 months after each sitting. The patients will see concrete results emerge over this period.
CoolSculpting is gaining popularity because it not only causes fat loss but also tightens the skin considerably in the area being treated. So you can rest assured that you will have a tighter, leaner body after each treatment. Also, it is designed to ensure maximum effectiveness against the fat cells while the surrounding cells, muscles, tissues, nerves, and skin remain safe. A single treatment regimen can lead to a loss of 25 to 30% of cells in an area.
The Benefits of CoolSculpting
Who doesn’t want to hit their target weight and achieve that perfect fit and proportionate body? And wouldn’t it be awesome to deal with loose sagging skin while we are at it?
CoolSculpting offers several benefits. For starters, it is a completely non-surgical, non-invasive procedure. So you won’t be put under anesthesia at any point during the treatment. This also means that the recovery time is minimal. There are no side effects other than the fact that you might feel a bit of tingling in the treated area for several days, there may also be some swelling which will go down in a few days on its own. The CoolSculpting treatment causes very little pain and discomfort and you can resume your daily life right after treatment is over. So you won’t need to miss out on work or any activities.
Best of all, the coolsculpting treatment does not leave scars or incisions for you to care for and results can be amazing. It will take at least four sittings with your CoolSculpting treatment provider for you to see the real difference.
So no more hassles of surgeries and expensive appointments with your cosmetic surgeon. The treatment is stress-free; it is carried out in a relaxed environment. You can even take a nap or read a book as you lie comfortably while the procedure is being administered. You will be awake the whole time the CoolSculpting machine works and then just get up and leave as soon as your appointment is over. There really is nothing to it!
We’ve already mentioned that all those stories about loose skin after a coolsculpting treatment are nothing more than a hoax. In reality, CoolSculpting works the other way round. It helps tone and tightens up your skin, unlike potential dangerous procedures like liposuction.
Preserve Your Tone and Youthful Look
Fat reduction, when done right, triggers the contraction of the skin. But does CoolSculpting tighten skin? CoolSculpting achieves this aim very well. Areas of the body that are treated with CoolSculpting show an immediate improvement in skin elasticity. It helps preserve the new contours of your body, ensuring that you look just as fabulous as you feel.
This is why dermatologists do not recommend liposuction surgeries. They can leave skin looking saggy and old once the excess fat is taken out. However, that is not the case with CoolSculpting. Patients reported tightened skin and visibly toned skin within days of receiving the treatment.
We’ve already discussed how CoolSculpting can help improve the overall appearance of skin after a treatment. However, it’s encouraging to witness the cool sculpting can be used to make skin tighter and smoother after weight loss.
The Last Word
Skin tightening and toning weren’t the intended benefits of CoolSculpting. These were never advertised as the advantages of undergoing CoolSculpting treatment. However, thanks to overwhelming patient response and reviews, various studies were conducted to prove that there is a strong correlation between CoolSculpting and skin tightening.
Liposuction and other invasive surgeries can quickly get rid of the fat. However, patients often notice the skin around the treated area beginning to sag and lose its elasticity. It doesn’t contract on its own and patients need to go through an additional surgery to get rid of this excess skin. However, they do not have to worry about this after a CoolSculpting treatment.
The freezing fat reduction treatment causes a reaction in skin cells, causing them to straighten up and tighten up as your body goes through fat loss. Talk to your plastic surgeon to learn more about CoolSculpting treatments.
