How to Achieve a Suitable Body Outline Using Coolsculpting?
Accumulation of fats in specific regions of your body may pose a significant risk to your health, e.g., cardiac disease, and also affect your self-esteem. This is because fatty cells trigger cytokine production, which causes heart disease.
Low self-esteem lowers your confidence in your body. We offer coolsculpting services at Fairbanks Med Spa, CA,which effectively treats fatty areas of your body. You can contact us at 858-759-6634 for high quality care at an affordable cost.
What Is Coolsculpting?
It is a technological fat reduction treatment that aims at reducing extra fat by the use of cold temperatures to disintegratefat cells. It is a non-surgical procedure with minimal side effects and has a high success rate but only removes a certain percentage of fat, i.e., 25%-50%.
Common areas treated include abdominal region, thighs, arms, under buttocks, sagging chin, and chest in males. It is important to exercise and eat a healthy diet, which also helps in burning fats before considering coolsculpting. You also need to consult a plastic specialist to determine if you are fit for the treatment.
There are two types of devices used as mentioned below:
- Vacuum-assisted which uses suction and causes pinching
- Flat applicator which causes tingling sensations during the treatment.
How Coolsculpting Works
Before your treatment, weight measurements and pictures are taken for comparison later. The procedure takes 35 minutes to an hour. A device that brings about the cooling effect is moved over the identified area. It uses the principle ofeither suctioning or cooling and targets fatty cells under the skin to precipitate their natural death.
This is done continuously until the time limit has elapsed. The cold does not affect other cells the same way it affects fatty cells because only these cells are sensitive to cold. Therefore, there is no risk of skin and underlying tissue damage.
You will feel minimal discomfort, e.g., pulling and feeling of cold sensation. Most patients need 1-3 treatments for the procedure to work effectively depending on your initial weight and your rate of metabolism.
After Coolsculpting Treatment
The changes will occur after two weeks to three months because the body requires time to do away with dead cells. These cells will begin to shrink and get metabolized by the liver in readiness for elimination.
After the destruction of the cells, they will not reappear; however, new fatty cells can form. You are therefore advised to lead a healthy lifestyle to ensure the results last long.
You may also have excess skin if the skin has stretched around the fatty build-ups. After shrinking the cells, there will be some space left.
Techniques Needed to Achieve Good Results
Avoid the use of over the counter medications. Removal of fatty cells is mediated by inflammatory action in the body, which is inhibited by such drugs.
Exercise to maintain your weight. Thenumber of calories to eat should not be more than what you are burning off to avoid the deposition of fat in other areas.
Ensure you adhere to follow up appointments to review how you are progressing and assess any need for more treatments to achieve your goal.
Employ healthy eating habits refraining from excess fat.
Massage the treated area gently to counteract the hardening effect of the tissues post-procedure. In case of any undesired effects, visit Fairbanks Med Spa in Rancho Santa Fe, CA, for further assessment.
