Cleveland patients ask about the CoolSculpting procedure
Unwanted areas of fat are common for both men and women. This may be around the midsection, on the thighs, or even on the upper arms. Wherever extra fat cells have accumulated, many patients want it gone. While diet and exercise are great ways to address overall body fat, they are not the best methods for targeted attention to specific areas. This is when procedures such as CoolSculpting can help. At Seriously Skin in Cleveland, Ohio, patients can enjoy the benefits of a non-invasive treatment to improve areas where excess fat is an issue.
CoolSculpting is a wonderful alternative to traditional means of removing unwanted fat such as liposuction or tummy tucks. These are invasive surgeries that involve downtime, recovery, and risks of infection. They may also be extremely expensive. Instead, patients can reduce fat in a specific area by 20-25 percent with cryolipolysis.
CoolSculpting works by essentially freezing the fat cells deep within the skin without harming surrounding tissues and muscles. The team at Seriously Skin uses a special device that cools the fat cells. While results are not immediate, they do provide gradual, natural changes to the body which many patients prefer over immediate changes which indicate having “work done.”
The CoolSculpting procedure is done right in the office in less than an hour. Patients relax while the device cools the fat cells to the point where they are then flushed out of the body over the course of several months. Optimum results are often seen around four months after the initial treatment, and additional procedures may be done to continue to reduce the fat in the area if patients so desire. Even with several treatments, CoolSculpting is still more affordable than plastic surgery and eliminates the risks of surgical intervention.
