All You Need To Know About Coolsculpting

Do you have fat that just won’t go away? Do you want to look your best and working out is no longer cutting it? Our Richmond Hill Coolsculpting is a great way to get the look you want with minimal effort. Ava Laser Clinic has put together a guide on everything you need to know about Coolsculpting. 

What is Stubborn Fat?

The number of fat cells that you develop over your childhood and through your adolescence does not change much once you become an adult. Diet and exercise can help reduce the size of your fat cells, but it is not always completely effective. These stubborn pockets are often resistant no matter how hard you try to get rid of them. Everyone carries their fat differently, and these stubborn pockets will vary on each person. 

What Does Coolsculpting Do?

Coolsculpting, which is actually cryolipolysis, can effectively treat this stubborn fat and make you look fabulous. The procedure freezes the fat cells thus eliminating them completely. That’s right, this one-of-a-kind technology will kill the fat cells in the treatment area, so they can never come back. 

The science behind the cryolipolysis technique is proven and the results are easy to see. The fat-freezing methods used when doing this treatment offers long term results for stubborn fat. All fat will freeze at a certain temperature, and fat cells hate the cold. Frozen fat cells will die off and your body will naturally eliminate the dead cells from your body. This process can take as many as three months with a final result being a reduction of 20-25% fat in the area treated. 

Who is a Good Candidate for This Sort of Treatment?

For those who are dedicated to an active lifestyle and have developed healthy eating habits, CoolSculpting is a great way to perfect your appearance. It is safe and will help get rid of stubborn pockets of fat that diet and exercise have proven ineffective. It is important to keep in mind that this treatment is not a weight-loss procedure. It is only intended for patients who are very close to their target body weight. Nine areas have been approved for CoolSculpting treatments and if you are seeking to eliminate fat in one of these areas, then it is a great option. 

Where Can It Be Used?

This procedure can be used to get rid of stubborn fat in a few areas of your body. The area under the jaw and chin, the abdomen, and the thighs are the most commonly treated areas. It can also be used to get rid of back fat, bra fat, and banana roll fat that is often found under the butt cheeks. The upper arms can also be treated in addition to being used to tighten lax tissue. 

Is CoolSculpting Safe?

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure that has been proven safe and effective. Some patients are unable to take advantage of this procedure, however. Anyone that suffers from paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria, cold agglutinin disease, or cryoglobulinemia is unable to undergo the procedure. Make sure that you inform the treatment specialist of any existing medical conditions, allergies or the presence of a hernia prior to starting your procedure. In rare cases, the treatment area may become enlarged a few months post-treatment. This will need surgical intervention to correct the problem. 

Is the Procedure Painful?

The procedure is non-invasive, but you may experience mild discomfort. It is common to feel a sensation of tugging, pulling, aching, pinching, tingling, and extreme cold during the procedure. These sensations tend to dissipate once the area begins to become numb. You can expect a small amount of redness, swelling, stinging, itching, and tenderness following your procedure. This will subside as your body heals and starts to remove the dead fat cells from your body.
