Ideally, keeping to healthy eating habits and working out consistently will help you to attain and maintain your ideal body weight based on your gender and height. However, sometimes, there are trouble areas that prove very difficult to get in shape despite all the best efforts. The good news is that there is an effective solution for this and it is cool sculpting.
How cool sculpting works
Many people despair because they believe that the medical weight loss options would be surgical interventions such as gastric bypass surgery or liposuction. That is not true. Cool sculpting is a safe, effective, and non-invasive fat removal procedure that has worked for so many.
The procedure was developed by specialists at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard University. It has been cleared by the FDA. Cool sculpting uses patented technology that works to remove fat cells.
Freezing fat cells
With cool sculpting, fat cells beneath the skin are cooled to temperatures that make them die naturally. The result is that targeted fat cells become crystallized or frozen after which they die. Fat cells crystallize faster than normal cells. This is why the procedure can be done without causing any damage to the skin, the nerves or the tissues surrounding the targeted area.
Over time, as the fat cells freeze and die, the body metabolizes them naturally. When they are removed from the body as dead cells, the result is a figure that is sculpted exactly as you wished. Once the fat cells are eliminated from the body, they are gone forever.
How many sessions are needed
The number of sessions needed will vary from person to person. In every person, this will be determined by the density of the fat cells in the area or areas to be treated. For instance, a person who only has a bit of fat around the tummy will need fewer sessions that one who has more fat or who wants the procedure done on other areas such as their thighs and arms.
During every session, the number of fat cells in a targeted area is reduced by approximately 20 percent. The results are enhanced with each treatment sessions so you will keep seeing the targeted areas looking trimmer each time until the desired final result is achieved. The full results will be seen after at least a month or two for those who needed more sessions. The body continues to eliminated fat cells for up to six months after the treatment.
What does it feel like?
During the first few minutes, you can expect to feel pressure and very cold. However, this eases as the session continues and you can even nap, read and do other things. The side effects are rare and minor if they occur. They include some discomfort or numbness after a session but these wear off soon afterward.
Once fat cells are treated, they are gone for good once they are eliminated. That’s why cool sculpting is the best way to get that tone, trimmed figure and keep it for good.
