If you have decided to undergo CoolSculpting so you can enjoy all the benefits of a slimmer-looking silhouette without the hassle of surgery, did you know there are things you can do to enhance your CoolSculpting results? This means you can get the most effective and long-lasting treatment available when it comes to body contouring.
What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses controlled cooling technology to reduce unwanted fat in targeted areas of the body. It is a popular treatment for individuals who have stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
During a CoolSculpting treatment at PURE Medical Spa, a specialized device is placed on the skin over the targeted area. This device delivers controlled cooling to the underlying fat cells, freezing them and causing them to undergo a natural process of cell death. The body then naturally eliminates these dead fat cells over time.
CoolSculpting is FDA-approved for treating several areas of the body, including the abdomen, flanks, thighs, arms, chin, and jawline. It is important to note that CoolSculpting is not a weight loss treatment and is not intended to replace a healthy diet and exercise.
Patients may experience some temporary side effects, such as redness, swelling, or numbness, but these typically resolve within a few days, so there is practically zero downtime.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
CoolSculpting works by using a process called cryolipolysis, which is a controlled cooling technology that selectively targets and freezes unwanted fat cells without damaging surrounding tissue. The frozen fat cells undergo a process called apoptosis, which is the natural process of cell death. Over time, the body naturally eliminates these dead fat cells, resulting in a reduction of fat in the treated area.
CoolSculpting technology was designed to reach a specific temperature that is cold enough to freeze the fat cells, but not cold enough to damage the surrounding tissue or skin, so it is a safe and effective treatment option for optimal body contouring results.
Where Can CoolSculpting Be Used?
The technology and applicators used in CoolSculpting are designed for use on larger areas of the body, such as the double chin, abdomen, thighs, flanks, sides (“Love Handles” or “Muffin Top”), upper back fat (“bra fat”) and upper arms.
CoolSculpting is not typically used as a treatment for the face or neck. However, CoolSculpting can be an effective treatment for reducing unwanted fat in the chin (jawline). At PURE, the abdomen, upper arms and thighs are common areas of concern for many people, especially as they age or experience weight fluctuations. Plus, these areas can be harder to target through diet and exercise alone.
Tips To Enhance CoolSculpting Results
While CoolSculpting can help reduce unwanted fat in targeted areas, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle to maximize the results of the treatment. Here are some tips for enhancing your CoolSculpting results:
- Maintain a healthy diet – Eating a healthy, balanced diet can help you maintain your CoolSculpting results. Focus on eating whole foods, such as fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains, and avoid processed and high-sugar foods.
- Stay hydrated – Drinking plenty of water can help flush out the toxins and fat released during CoolSculpting. Aim for at least 8 cups of water per day.
- Exercise regularly – Incorporating regular exercise into your routine can help you maintain your CoolSculpting results and improve overall health. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise most days of the week.
- Avoid weight gain – CoolSculpting can help reduce unwanted fat, but it is not a weight loss treatment. To maintain your results, it is important to avoid significant weight gain after the treatment.
- Be patient – CoolSculpting results are not immediate, and it can take several weeks or even months to see the full results. It’s important to be patient and stick to a healthy lifestyle to maximize the results of the treatment.
Are There Complementary Treatments That Can Enhance The Results of CoolSculpting?
Yes, another way to enhance your CoolSculpting results is to supplement them with other body contouring treatments. At PURE, we can help you say goodbye to unwanted fat with a variety of treatments:
Laser skin tightening: Laser skin tightening uses laser technology to heat the deep layers of skin, stimulating collagen production and tightening loose skin. This treatment can help improve the overall appearance of the treated area and complement the fat reduction achieved with CoolSculpting.
Injectable fillers: Injectable fillers such as hyaluronic acid or collagen can be used to add volume to areas that may appear hollow or flattened after CoolSculpting. This can help restore a more youthful, contoured appearance to the treated area. Plus, Kybella is the only injectable used exclusively for removing unwanted fat under the chin.
At PURE Medical Spa, we want you to have all of the information you need to make an informed decision about your aesthetic journey. Here are some frequently asked questions about CoolSculpting:
Does CoolSculpting really work?
Yes, CoolSculpting has been clinically proven to be an effective treatment for reducing unwanted fat in targeted areas of the body. CoolSculpting works by using a patented cooling technology to freeze and destroy fat cells in the treated area. Once the fat cells are destroyed, they are gradually eliminated from the body through the natural metabolic process.
CoolSculpting has been extensively studied and clinically tested to ensure its safety and efficacy. In fact, the procedure has received FDA clearance for the treatment of visible fat bulges in various areas of the body, including the abdomen, thighs, flanks, and chin.
How long do CoolSculpting results last?
CoolSculpting results can be long-lasting as the treated fat cells are permanently destroyed and eliminated from the body. However, it’s important to note that CoolSculpting does not prevent new fat cells from forming, and weight gain can still occur if a healthy lifestyle is not maintained.
The exact duration of the results can vary depending on various factors such as individual body composition, age, genetics, and lifestyle habits. Maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine can help you maintain the results of CoolSculpting and prevent weight gain. The most significant results appear after several months.
Is CoolSculpting effective on belly fat?
Yes, CoolSculpting can be an effective treatment for reducing belly fat. The abdomen is one of the most commonly treated areas with CoolSculpting, and the procedure has been clinically proven to be effective in reducing stubborn fat in this area.
