Who is a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive body-sculpting procedure that targets and removes body fat in a highly specific way. It can be a good method of losing inches when diet and exercise alone aren’t getting the results you want.
Why Choose CoolSculpting®?
Selecting the best fat removal methods depends on a number of factors. While there are other methods of fat removal—such as liposuction—that are capable of removing more fat than CoolSculpting®, but there are some big advantages to opting for the CoolSculpting® procedure.
The key feature that defines CoolSculpting® is its ability to remove small amounts of fat from very specific locations. If you have stubborn fat that diet and exercise haven’t been able to eliminate, CoolSculpting® might be a good option.
In contrast to other, more extensive fat removal procedures, CoolSculpting® uses a hand piece to non-invasively remove excess fat. There are no incisions, no need for anesthetic, no downtime, and no recovery time required, as there is with weight-loss surgery or liposuction. And because CoolSculpting® is non-invasive, it’s virtually risk-free.
Is CoolSculpting® Right for You?
The CoolSculpting® procedure works best for people who are at or close to their target weight, but who want to refine their body shape by removing bulges in key areas. Because CoolSculpting® doesn’t remove large amounts of fat, it’s not a substitute for weight loss, and may not be the not the best choice if you want to lose a significant amount of weight.
Another important factor relates to how the fat is distributed on the body. For CoolSculpting® to provide desired results, the fat should be in a relatively small area and loose enough that it can be accessed by the CoolSculpting® hand piece which freezes fat cells to eliminate them from the body.
CoolSculpting® is right for you if you’re not significantly overweight or if you have small pockets of fat that diet and exercise haven’t been able to remove, such as the love handles, under the arms, or on the lower abdomen.
