The cold has finally arrived! You’d think that with temperatures dropping, we’d be turning up the heat. Not so much! At Alazzo Med Spa, we’re bringing a bit more chill with CoolSculpting. We’re hearing about it everywhere, but what exactly is CoolSculpting and how does it work? CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, non-surgical, fat-reduction treatment that uses “freezing” to eliminate diet and exercise resistant fat cells.
How does it work?
Using a process called Cryolipolysis®, CoolSculpting freezes and crystalizes fat cells until they are damaged and die. Over time, your body will process the fat naturally and eliminate the dead cells.
What is the treatment process?
The first step to treatment is an assessment. During this time, your specialist will identify areas of concern and with you, decide on a plan to achieve the goals for your body shaping. Next, your treatment areas will be marked, and the skin prepared with a protective gel. The machine will then be applied to the skin and will run for as few as 35 minutes. Initially, you will feel a cold sensation that may turn to a slight tingling sensation (often compared to sticking your hand into an ice chest). Following the tingling sensation, the area being treated will become numb and the numbness will continue for some time after the treatment is over. The process is easy and fast, so many bring a book or computer to keep them company.
Is CoolSculpting for me?
If you have stubborn fat that doesn’t respond to diet or exercise, then CoolSculpting is for you! We must clarify that this treatment is not a weight-loss procedure, but a way of reducing unwanted fat and assisting in achieving long term goals.
Will I see results right away?
Although you may start to see results as quickly as 3 weeks after your treatment, it has been noted that the most dramatic results are noticed after about 2 months. You can view before & after photos here. Your body will continue to flush the dead fat cells for up to 6 months after treatment. There are no special supplements, or any lifestyle changes needed to experience the best possible results. However, many patients do feel motivated to take better care of themselves after seeing the result from their CoolSculpting treatment.
