The 6 Benefits of CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is a new non-invasive procedure that targets the fat and kills the cells without harming the surrounding layers of skin.

It is akin to liposuction but more strategic. Instead of targeting a wide area, this procedure targets specific locations where subcutaneous fat are found and kills them using cold.

The process is based on the results of studies that showed that cold causes fat cells to die out after they have been exposed to it. Thus, the whole thing comes down to the cooling of the fat in those targeted areas so they die out.

Benefits of CoolSculpting

Having this procedure done has its benefits. These are the reasons why it is fast becoming a more sought after alternative to liposuction.

1. Non-invasive – Unlike liposuction which is invasive, CoolSculpting doesn’t require any form of surgery. The only procedure done is to get the targeted area between two pads which then pinches it between two cooling elements so that the cooling process can begin.

Because you don’t have to go under anesthesia or anything like that, unlike in liposuction, you can still do things while the procedure is being done. Patients have been known to still do work on their laptops or play card games while they were being treated.

2. No cutting or surgery needed – Since it is non-invasive there’s no “slicing” involved. The only thing you will feel will be the two cooling pads pinching the targeted area of your body. Otherwise you won’t feel anything else.

3. No anesthesia – Since this is non-invasive and almost painless, there is no need for anesthesia.

4. Little to no downtime – There is no hospitalization or bed rest involved after this procedure. Once it is done the patient can simply get up and go. Compare this with liposuction or other invasive surgical procedures which requires bed rest so the patient can recover and heal.

5. Minimal side-effects – The only side-effects you will feel will be numbness and redness on the targeted areas. Otherwise you won’t feel anything that will hamper your day to day activities. Unlike liposuction where you need to take medication because of the pain you feel afterwards. With coolsculpting there is no pain.

6. It’s fast and easy – Nothing complicated here. Once the targeted fatty area has been designated by your doctor the whole procedure can take as little as one hour or up to three hours. After that you still have the rest of your day to do whatever you want.

With all of these benefits, you may be inclined to have this non-invasive cosmetic surgery procedure done to you. It is a good idea but do keep in mind that this is not a weight loss kind of procedure. This is basically for cleaning up stubborn fat that just won’t go away no matter how much exercise is done. Do consult with the doctor before you have this procedure.
