Body image and body positivity are such huge topics of discussion nowadays, but things can sometimes get out of hand and a bit confusing. Can you love your body but still want to get a little bit of work done to tweak a few things here and there? Yes, you can. With CoolSculpting®, you can use it as a method to reduce those hard-to-reach areas of fat on your body while still staying true to your natural body contour.

What Is CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting® is an FDA-approved fat reduction treatment that is a safe, effective, and non-invasive way to reduce fat in the body. CoolSculpting® can eliminate stubborn fat in nine different areas of the body, including under the chin and jawline areas, thighs, abdomen, flanks, bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks, and along the upper arms.

This treatment is quick, as it typically only takes about one hour to complete. The CoolSculpting® device pulls the predetermined treatment area between the cooling panels and cools the fat cells to just above freezing, which causes crystals to form on the fat cells without actually freezing any healthy tissue.The fat cells are destroyed immediately, and they are naturally eliminated from your body over the next few months.

Does CoolSculpting® Hurt?

The CoolSculpting® treatment does not hurt, so patients should not feel any pain. However, there may be feelings of discomfort due to the cold panels and the pulling of the skin between the panels during treatment. Patients may feel numb in the treatment area for a few days, but there should not be any other side effects to the treatment. Regular activities may be resumed right away.

When Will I See My Results?

Results of your CoolSculpting® treatment will start to become noticeable after about two to four months. The body needs time to naturally eliminate those dead skin cells, so while it’s actively working from day one, you won’t be able to see a difference until a few months later. Depending on the treatment area, your clothes will start fitting better, your abdomen will begin to flatten, and you will feel more confident in your own skin.

So, whether you are comfortable with your body and need help in one area or nine, CoolSculpting® can help get you to the aesthetic you desire. Love your body the way you want it to be and let your confidence shine. Schedule a consultation to discuss your goals with Sanctuary Medical Center.
