If you have heard about the wonderful benefits individuals who have used the CoolSculpting® procedure are experiencing, it is likely that you are asking yourself whether or not you will be a good candidate. Well, if you are close to your ideal body weight and are able to maintain your weight, you might be a good candidate for this procedure.
CoolSculpting® is a body sculpting procedure. It’s not designed to cause weight loss. Instead, it destroys the fat cells that your body needs to metabolize fat. When these fat cells are destroyed, your body is unable to hold onto fat in the areas that are treated.
In order to be a good candidate, you need to have an area of fat that is large enough to hold onto. This is because the machine that applies the controlled cooling to the treated area uses suction to pull the fat and suck it between two cooling plates.
CoolSculpting® uses the power of controlled cooling to permanently get rid of fat. The machine functions by taking a hold of your fat and placing it between a device with two cooling plates. The cooling plates are brought down to a temperature that safely destroys the fat cells. What’s nice is that the fat cells die at a temperature that is a lot higher than your skin, nerves, blood vessels, and other organs do. So this means that your fat cells die because of the cold, but the rest of your body is left completely unaffected.
The results from CoolSculpting® are not immediate. You’re going to walk out of the procedure the exact same size as you were when you came in. It is going to take weeks or months before you start to see the results.
The thing is that the fat in your body is packaged away in fat cells. Your fat cells get larger or smaller depending on how much weight you put on. As these fat cells die and release their contents, this content is absorbed back into your body and removed as waste. It is when this process happens that you’re going to start to see the fat disappear from the treated area.
CoolSculpting® is an amazing body sculpting procedure that can make your stubborn fat disappear. It is a safe procedure that is performed hundreds of times on a daily basis.
