Summer is just around the corner, but unfortunately, most of us have been caught up with work and other aspects of our lives that we barely have time to workout. So, is it still possible to get a summer-ready body even when you’re strapped for time? With Coolsculpting, it is.

What is Coolsculpting?

Coolsculpting is a fat freeze therapy that helps to remove unwanted fat from the body. Treatment works by freezing the fat. Exposing fat cells to cold temperatures making them burst, so the body ends up flushing them away. Coolsculpting gives permanent results, in that the fat that has been destroyed is gone for good. However, it is still possible to gain weight after treatment, though.

Who is Coolsculpting For?

Coolsculpting is perfect for people who are at or near their target weight and who have areas of excess fat. Excessive fat should be stubborn, meaning that it has not responded to any exercise or dietary effort.  It is important to understand that Coolsculpting is not weight loss. You might lose a few pounds as the fat is flushed away, but you won’t even notice a dramatic drop in weight.

Both men and women are allowed to have Coolsculpting. The main thing is that you have an adequate amount of fat in your treatment area. The paddles used during treatment need to be able to suction in the area in order to work effectively.

What Areas of the Body Can Coolsculpting Treat?

Almost any area of the body that has excess fat or fatty deposits can be treated with Coolsculpting. Applicators of different sizes and shapes are available for the treatment of particular areas. The area that your doctor can treat may depend on the type of applicator he has in his practice. That is why it is a good idea to choose a practice that has a wide range of applicators on hand.

What Will Happen During Coolsculpting?

Each Coolsculpting treatment will take one hour. Depending on the number of practitioners you have, you can treat one area at a time or two areas. The treatment is usually quite comfortable. You are going to be awake during this, so it is a good idea to bring something with you to help fill the time. You can read a book, watch a show on Netflix or Hulu, do some work, or talk to a friend on the phone.

Before treatment, a practitioner will label the areas you want to be treated with a marker. The paddle or applicator will then be placed in that area. The applicator will lift the treatment area with some suction and start to cool the area. You might feel a cold or a bit of a sting at first, but after the area gets numb, you won’t feel that much at all. Based on the number of areas you want to be treated, you may need to return after the first session..

What Happens After Coolsculpting?

Right after Coolsculpting, the treated area will be raised and red because of exposure to the cold. Your practitioner may gently massage it to bring down the swelling.

You may feel good enough to go back to work or to do your other regularly scheduled actions right after treatment. Optionally, you might want to take off the rest of the day. After treatment, there’s no real downtime, so you should be able to get back to your regular activities and habits pretty much right away.

Seriously, What Happens to the Fat?

After Coolsculpting, your body doesn’t immediately get rid of the fat. Instead, it requires time to break it down and flush it through the lymphatic system. Once the fat is decimated, the body will treat it like a waste and make an attempt to get rid of it. How long it takes to completely flush away the fat depends on how fast your body metabolizes things.

Usually, after 16 weeks, people see full results. You might see results earlier, though.

How Many Treatments Do You Need?

How many treatments you need will depend on how much fat you have and how several areas you want to treat. Typically, a single treatment for Coolsculpting can remove up to 25% of the excess fat in the area. If you want more dramatic outcomes, you might want to schedule two treatments in the same area.

The fat eliminated by Coolsculpting is permanently gone, so you won’t need to schedule touch-up appointments to get rid of “return” fat.
