Since its introduction in 2010, CoolSculpting’s popularity has skyrocketed.
In fact, with over seven million treatments performed worldwide, CoolSculpting is one of the most-requested non-invasive body contouring procedures and an excellent liposuction alternative.
Therefore, it’s not surprising that a growing number of women and men in Northern Virginia are considering this fat-freezing treatment and wondering if it’s right for them.
If you would like to learn more about CoolSculpting in Northern Virginia, including how it works, the best CoolSculpting candidates, and expected results, read on.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
CoolSculpting is a noninvasive procedure that uses cryolipolysis to remove stubborn areas of fat.
During the treatment, a rounded hand piece gently suctions fatty tissue between two panels and applies a patented cooling technology. This process crystallizes subcutaneous fat cells and causes them to undergo a natural cell death.
In the coming weeks and months, the destroyed fat cells are gradually cleared from the body by the lymphatic system.
Best CoolSculpting Candidates
The best Northern Virginia CoolSculpting candidates are healthy women and men, who are at or near their ideal weight and struggle with localized pockets of pinchable fat.
Often times, these individuals lead an active lifestyle and have been unable to eliminate stubborn bulges through diet and exercise alone.
It’s also important to evaluate skin laxity and patient goals in order to determine candidacy.
Is CoolSculpting a Weight-Loss Treatment?
Even the best CoolSculpting treatment will not help you shed unwanted pounds. That’s because the procedure is not designed for weight loss.
Rather, it is meant to trim and reshape common trouble spots like the abdomen, flanks, thighs, hips, and arms and improve the look and fit of clothing.
What Can Patients Expect from Results?
CoolSculpting is a safe and effective treatment that yields impressive results. Within four-to-six weeks, patients will begin to see visible slimming of the targeted area.
Fat reduction continues to improve over the next three months, and patients can ultimately achieve up to a 24 percent decrease in subcutaneous fat.
