Nothing is more irksome than stubborn pockets of body fat. Sometimes, no matter how much you work out or how healthy your diet, nothing seems able to conquer those persistent little deposits. This is where CoolSculpting comes in. Here at Old Town Med Spa, we are proud to offer this non-invasive body sculpting treatment and encourage you to learn how it may be able to help you.
What is CoolSculpting?
This is a body contouring treatment famous for eliminating exercise-resistant fat pockets without any kind of surgical or invasive measure. This celebrated procedure received approval from the FDA for cosmetic use in 2012 and has since become a household name. Its name comes from how it works, employing cold temperatures in a process known as “fat freezing,” or cryolipolysis.
How Does It Work?
Your CoolSculpting session will take place in our office. During the process, a qualified professional will move a special handheld applicator over the specified areas, sending controlled coolness through them while you rest. When the lower temperatures are applied to the local fat deposits, they effectively freeze and are absorbed by the body’s lymphatic system. You can have CoolSculpting applied to various regions:
- Love handles
- Bra area
- Banana roll (under buttocks)
The duration of your CoolSculpting Chicago treatment depends on the area or areas you have treated, but it can be done on your lunch break. This process is comfortable and lets you rest; many of our patients go on their phones, take a nap, watch TV, or read. When you are done, there is no downtime; you can return to your regular routine directly after the session and wait for your results, which should emerge in anywhere from a couple of weeks to three months. Results are known to be long-lasting, with the fat cells permanently eliminated. Healthy eating and regular exercise can help maintain optimal results.
Am I a Good Candidate?
If you are reasonably close to your ideal weight, have exercise-resistant deposits of fat, and lead a healthy life, you are a superb candidate for CoolSculpting. It is important to maintain realistic expectations for this procedure; it is not a weight loss avenue but as a method of quashing residual pockets of fat. The best way to determine your CoolSculpting eligibility is to set up a consultation at our office.
