Non-invasive body contouring has become increasingly popular, and for a good reason. These treatments can shape your problem areas with no invasive procedures. Not all body contouring systems are created equal, however. CoolSculpting® wins the competition with everything from better applicators to more fat removal.
What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is an FDA-cleared non-surgical body contouring treatment. It uses cold temperatures to freeze fat cells without harming your skin. Your body will remove the damaged fat cells over time. Fat cells freeze at a different temperature than other cells, making CoolSculpting® safe to use in almost any area where you accumulate stubborn fat.
How Does CoolSculpting® Work?
CoolSculpting® uses a technique called cryolipolysis to eliminate unwanted fat. When you lower the temperature enough, the contents of fat cells start to crystallize and damage the cells. Your body’s lymphatic system recognizes these damaged cells and filters them away for removal. Other types of body contouring use methods like heat to achieve the same task.
What Makes CoolSculpting® Better Than Other Body Contouring Devices?
CoolSculpting® beats the body contouring competition for several reasons. At Renew MD, we offer CoolSculpting® because you deserve nothing but the best.
Instead of flat pads, CoolSculpting® uses a range of applicators shaped to fit different parts of the body. These applicators can treat more and larger areas than other systems to save you time and money on repeat treatments.
Treats More Areas
Most other body contouring treatments address areas like the abdomen and flanks. Others can address the thighs as well. Only CoolSculpting® can target areas like the upper arms, under the chin, and back or bra fat.
More Fat Removal
CoolSculpting® has been shown to remove up to 25% of fat from the treated area. As a result, some people only need one treatment. Most benefit from two or more sessions to remove even more fat from these areas.
How Long Does it Take to See CoolSculpting® Results?
You will typically start to see results from CoolSculpting® within a few weeks of treatment. However, it can take up to three months for the full results to become visible. Filtering away fat cells is a gradual process that leads to sculpted, natural-looking results.
Is There Any Downtime With CoolSculpting®?
Unlike invasive methods of body contouring, CoolSculpting® requires no downtime. You can resume your usual activities immediately. Many people notice minor redness, sensitivity, and numbness for up to a few days.
Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting®?
Almost anyone can be a good candidate for CoolSculpting®. Ideal candidates are within range of their target weight and want help with stubborn areas of fat. Let your Renew MD provider know if you have any medical conditions, especially those that make your body sensitive to cold.
