You may desire the confidence of a beach body, but also want to enjoy your summer without discomfort or downtime. If this sounds like you, you might consider a nonsurgical body contouring procedure like Coolsculpting®! Here are some benefits you can expect:
With Coolsculpting, there are no incisions necessary! Instead, a cold applicator is directed at pockets of stubborn fat in the abdominal, flanks, back, thighs, or beneath the chin, destroying the fat cells by freezing them while protecting the outside skin and tissue. With no incisions, you can enjoy a comfortable treatment process without the use of sedation or anesthesia and with no risk of scarring.
With a surgical procedure, you can expect some degree of downtime, especially if anesthesia was required. This often means taking work off and having someone care for you for several days. But with Nonsurgical contouring like Coolsculpting, you won’t miss a beat when getting back to your daily schedule. With no incisions or medication required, no downtime follows only some occasional minor discomfort.
The results from Coolsculpting aren’t immediate, but they are long lasting, just like a surgical procedure like liposuction! After your nonsurgical body contouring treatment, your body will need time to process and naturally eliminate the destroyed fat cells. This could take up to twelve weeks with results starting to become visible in as short as 3-4 weeks. A second treatment to the areas of concern is usually always recommended for maximal results usually within 60-90 days of the first treatment. After recovery from the treatments, you can enjoy a slimmer contour that lasts as long as you maintain your weight. Although the treated fat cells are gone for good, you can still gain weight in other untreated areas of your body. You can help ensure long lasting results through a healthy diet and regular exercise routine.
