Modern Body Sculpting: Why CoolSculpting Works
CoolSculpting is a new method of body sculpting that's non-invasive and requires zero downtime and no recovery period. This might seem too good to be true, but CoolSculpting is also FDA-approved and proven to work. In fact, it can reduce unwanted fat deposits by as much as 25% with just a single treatment. If you've been struggling to rid yourself of unwanted fat on your belly, thighs, love handles, or anywhere else, pay us a visit at aNu Aesthetics™ in Kansas City, MO for this new form of body sculpting.
How CoolSculpting Works
CoolSculpting is based on one simple fact: the body's fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than their surrounding tissue. Because of this, it's possible to carefully calibrate the application of temperature to the desired treatment area. This allows practitioners to freeze, crystalize, and kill fat cells without damaging anything around them.
But why does CoolSculpting work when diet and exercise don't? Once again, the answer comes down to fat cells.
The number of fat cells in the human body remains relatively constant and is set during adolescence and early adulthood. After that, people who lose or gain weight aren't generally losing or gaining fat cells. Instead, the cells shrink and swell as the body uses - or doesn't use - the excess nutrients stored in them.
No matter how many situps you do, it's tough to shrink existing fat cells all the way down to zero. That's where CoolSculpting comes in: it actually kills these fat cells, and the body flushes them out. Once this form of body sculpting has run its course, patients are left with visibly less fat than they started with.
How Long Does Body Sculpting Take?
This kind of body sculpting can be done in just one hour for a single treatment. Once it's done though, you have to be patient. It takes some time for the body to remove the newly dead fat cells. Some people who undergo this treatment start to see visible results around the three-week mark, but the most noticeable results will come three to four months after the first treatment. Results can continue to improve for up to six months. Some patients will go back for a second treatment to lose even more fat.
If you're concerned about loose skin after your fat melts away, don't be. Because it takes time for the body to remove the cells, your skin has time to adapt to the new contours of your body. After the results are fully formed, no one will be able to tell you ever had a treatment done.
It must be said that CoolSculpting is a body sculpting treatment, not a weight-loss method. If you want to lose weight for medical reasons, you should first speak to your physician and develop a plan for doing so. If, however, you are in good overall health, are sick of working to rid yourself of stubborn fat with no results, and want a treatment that will get the job done without the need for invasive surgeries, give us a call at aNu Aesthetics™ in Kansas City, MO to learn more about CoolSculpting!
