This weight can make some of us dread warmer weather, especially if those fat deposits are a bit too stubborn and really difficult to burn off at the gym. Fortunately, there are more than 4,000 medispas and salons offering CoolSculpting opens in a new window services in America today! If you’re thinking of adding CoolSculpting as a service at your spa, here are some things you should know about this popular procedure.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved method of freezing fat cells. The actual procedure is called cryolipolysis. The spa technician uses a specialized CoolSculpting wand to target fat cells in specific parts of the body and freeze them as fat cells respond differently to the temperature used than regular cells. The fat cells are then flushed out of the body through natural processes. Because there’s no cutting or surgery involved, it’s a very safe, quick and effective treatment for medispas to offer.
What are the CoolSculpting results?
CoolSculpting is very effective and most people report losing around 20% of the fat cells in treated areas. It can take about four months for the fat cells to completely leave the body. CoolSculpting treatments have a high rate of proven success associated with them. A study published by the National Institutes of Health opens in a new window found that CoolSculpting has an extremely high satisfaction rate among people who have undergone the procedure.
Is CoolSculpting permanent?
Like many cosmetic weight loss treatments, CoolSculpting is not permanent on its own. People who receive the treatment have to control their diet and utilize an exercise plan if they want to permanently keep the weight off. If you continue to eat an unhealthy diet, new fat cells begin depositing in the body before the fat cells that were treated have even left the body.
Are there CoolSculpting risks?
CoolSculpting side effects are very minimal when compared to other invasive surgical weight loss procedures, such as liposuction. There are no incisions involved in CoolSculpting, and no medications that can lead to skin allergies in some people. The reduced risk of side effects and the overall effectiveness of CoolSculpting have made it one of the most popular options for salons and spas across the country.
However, there are some risks that patients should be informed of ahead of time. This includes minor bruising, swelling, skin reddening or localized pain in the treatment area. These CoolSculpting side effects go away on their own within a few days if encountered.
