Gaining Popularity for Fat Removal
Both men and women who have shied away from liposuction in the Los Angeles and Orange County area in the past are flocking to the CoolSculpting ® approach for fat removal. Safe, long-lasting results with no downtime keep patients returning to this type of fat removal procedure. Precision in the treatment area also is a bonus to patients.
Safety of CoolSculpting ®
The CoolSculpting ® process involves freezing fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissue, muscle, or skin. By targeting the fat cells with sub-freezing temperatures, the patient can see the fat cells disappear within a few weeks to months. There is no risk of adverse reactions to medicines or anesthesia because the patient is fully awake during the one-hour procedure.
Longevity of CoolSculpting ®
Once the fat cells are frozen, they die and are removed from the body through the liver. Once expelled from the body, these fat cells will never return. Long-lasting results are realized with this type of fat removal. However, if a patient gains weight after the procedure, new fat cells can be created. But, the old fat cells that have died will never reappear.
No Downtime with CoolSculpting ®
Because CoolSculpting ® uses a freezing method to target fat cells, the patients who undergo this type of treatment don’t have to worry about downtime. The procedure lasts about an hour per area with no need for anesthesia or pain medication. Most patients report no adverse side effects and are able to return to their normal activities and routines immediately.
Precision of CoolSculpting ®
The CoolSculpting ® treatment is precise in the area of fat removal. If a patient wants to have fat removed from their back, that particular area is targeted. With the patented CoolAdvantage applicators, precise areas like the abdomen or love handles are targeted.
Cost Effectiveness of CoolSculpting ®
Because a patient does not need a surgical suite or hospital to have CoolSculpting ®, the costs are considerably less than with invasive procedures like liposuction. Since costs are so much lower for CoolSculpting ®, a patient can have multiple areas treated during one session for the price of one targeted area of liposuction.
Multiple Treatments with CoolSculpting ®
Since the CoolSculpting ® treatment is a non-invasive procedure, the fat cells in the treated areas are not injured, but rather disappear after they die. Due to this type of removal, no scar tissue is created in the treated area and a patient can treat the same exact area numerous times to obtain the results desired.
No Adverse Reactions with CoolSculpting ®
Since CoolSculpting ® only uses cold to ultimately kill fat cells, there is no need for medications that might cause adverse reactions in patients. CoolSculpting ® is currently one of the safest, non-invasive fat removal treatments on the market today.
It is important to remember that even the cutting-edge CoolSculpting ® treatment process is no replacement for a proper diet and exercise regime. If a patient is obese, this process should not be seen as a weight loss program. The CoolSculpting ® process is not intended to be a weight loss process for patients; but rather, CoolSculpting ® is perfect for those pesky, hard-to-rid fat pockets that diet and exercise have not eliminated. If you live in the Los Angeles or Orange County area and would like to look slimmer, have your clothes fit better, or get rid of pesky, stubborn fat areas, contact Orange County CoolSculpting ® for your initial free consultation.
