Coolsculpting is a technology that uses fat freezing methods to reduce the number of fat cells present in the body. There is a layer of fat just underneath the skin. Fat cells are very temperature sensitive and die if exposed to very cold temperatures. This technology crystallizes fat cells, causing them to eventually shrink and die. Here are some major differences between weight loss and fat reduction that you must know.
As we grow from childhood to adulthood, the number of fat cells in the body becomes a permanent number. Weight gain or weight loss is essentially the increase or decrease in the size of the already existing fat cells. Fat freezing technology actually targets these fat cells and eliminates them from the body. This process, unlike weight loss, is permanent.
The Coolsculpting fat freezing technology may not help you lose kilos but it will definitely help you drop inches and will be a permanent solution. Weight management becomes a lot easier after fat freezing as the number of fat cells has been reduced.
Once the cells have been frozen, the body naturally starts eliminating them. The results of the Coolsculpting fat freezing technology can become visible after 3 weeks of treatment and keep improving as the body continues to eliminate more of the crystallized cells.
Coolscupting also have some side effects and downsides. Some of them have been listed below.
It targets only superficial, easily accessible fatty areas.
It can work only on small areas at one time.
It is very time consuming, especially if there are more than one target areas.
Since the procedure targets one area at a time and each area counts as one session, it could turn out to be expensive in the long run.
There is a possibility that there is uneven fat removal.
There is a chance of bruising due to the vacuum created by the fat freezing machine.
Cryolipolysis, the process of freezing fat cells, can cause numbness which could last between two hours to two weeks or even more.
The results take a while to show even though the procedures are already done.
People with serious weight issues or those who are dealing with obesity may not benefit from Coolsculpting.
There have been isolated cases where the clients have received frost bites from the fat freezing procedure.
It is best to consult a physician before going in for the coolsculpting fat freezing procedure in order to be safe. It is also important to have a consultation with the personnel who will be conducting the fat freezing procedure to decide beforehand what is more suitable.
