CoolSculpting in Prescott is a revolutionary technology that uses a precisely controlled cooling method called Cryolipolysis which targets, cools and eliminates fat cells. After a CoolSculpting procedure the body continues to break down the treated fat cells, now in a crystallized or frozen state, leading to fat cell death. Over the next two to four months they are naturally flushed from the body.
Cool Sculpting procedure is designed to target and destroy 20%-25% of the fat cells in the treated area. Diet, exercise and other procedures may shrink fat cells, leaving an open opportunity to increase the size of those same fat cells from a lifestyle shift. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. Cool Sculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. Over the course of the following weeks after your treatment, your body processes the fat and eliminates it from the body naturally. While dieting and exercise makes the fat cells smaller, this fat freezing procedure gets rid of them completely, allowing you to enjoy positive and long-lasting results of CoolSculpting!
Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting in Prescott?
During the latter half of 2010, an innovative form of cosmetic improvement turned the world of body contouring on its ear. This procedure, known as CoolSculpting by Zeltiq, has its share of benefits to offer those who decide to give it a try. It is a non-invasive fat removal cosmetic procedure for the body, which costs less than liposuction. It is reputed to be practically painless. However, what is not clear at this point is how long the results remain in effect. Freezing your fat to slim down may sound like something that you want to try, but first you need to know what the media is not telling you.
To determine, if this procedure is the right one for one, you need to arm yourself with the details about it that you will not hear on any talk shows on television. You will not know if it is something you should undertake, unless you are privy to the hidden nuggets of information.
Success does not always occur after the first treatment. You may have to be treated two, or even three times to see visible results that signal success. The full results will take anywhere from two to three months to appear. That is the reality for some patients of CoolSculpting. For other people, it may take longer. It may take anywhere from four to six months to see the complete end result.
Does Fat Freezing Work?
CoolSculpting is the body contouring procedure we have all been waiting for - a 100% non-invasive method to dissolve away unwanted fat. Body contouring is a term that encompasses a wide range of cosmetic medical procedures that help you reshape your body. Liposuction is perhaps the oldest and best-known form of body contouring. In recent years, various other less-invasive methods have been introduced to help reshape and get rid of unwanted fat. Laserlipo and Lipodissolve have been the two most popular, but these procedures still require cannulas or needles, and still involve some downtime.
CoolSculpting is different. This procedure is 100% noninvasive. It uses an advanced tissue cooling technology to gently target and eliminate fat cells without harming the skin. In other words, it can freeze away your fat. The science behind CoolSculpting was discovered by dermatologists affiliated with Harvard Medical School, and has been extensively studied for the last 4 years. The end result is a state-of-the-art body sculpting device that has been conclusively shown over and over to safely reduce 20-25% of your subcutaneous fat layer with each treatment. Moreover, it does this with only minimal discomfort and no downtime. You may resume your normal activities including work and exercise the same day as your procedure.
CoolSculpting is not a substitute for weight loss, a healthy diet, or exercise (as is the case with any form of body contouring including liposuction). People who are within 10-15 lbs of their ideal body weight are the best candidates for this procedure. CoolSculpting is ideal for those bulges that won't go away no matter what you do, including the abdominal "pooch", the love handles, and that bra-line "back fat". It is proving to be a popular procedure for both women and men. Applicators are being developed for other areas of the body including the thighs, the upper arms, and the chin, but aren't yet available for these areas. Liposuction will remove more fat than CoolSculpting, so while more invasive, it may be a better option for some.
