In the months leading up to summer, many women and men work to prepare their bodies for bathing suit season.
While diet and exercise are often quite effective, certain fatty areas are resistant to these approaches.
If this is true for you, it may be time to consider non-surgical body sculpting. Although there are a number of options available, CoolSculpting is the only FDA-approved non-invasive treatment that freezes fat to reshape common trouble spots like the abdomen, flanks, chin, and thighs.
Non-Surgical Body Sculpting in Arlington – The CoolSculpting Difference
While other body sculpting techniques rely on lasers, ultrasound, or surgery to eliminate unwanted fat, CoolSculpting is in a class of its own.
It uses a patented cooling technology to precisely target and freeze fat cells to the point of apoptosis (cell death). This mechanism of action is not only effective in crystallizing and destroying fat, but it is completely non-invasive.
Accordingly, CoolSculpting avoids scalpels, needles, cannulas, anesthesia, and scarring and eliminates stubborn fat without harming surrounding skin and structures.
What’s more, this method of non-surgical body sculpting can achieve up to a 20-25 percent reduction in subcutaneous fat in the treatment area and requires zero downtime.
Does CoolSculpting Hurt?
As a non-surgical body sculpting treatment, CoolSculpting is virtually painless. Patients may experience slight tugging, followed by a cooling sensation, as the applicator is secured to the treatment area.
Within five minutes, any discomfort should dissipate, and you are free to relax for the remainder of the session.
How Long Does CoolSculpting Take?
Many women and men elect to undergo CoolSculpting because of its efficiency. Most treatment cycles can be completed in as little as 35 minutes, allowing patients to have the procedure during their lunchbreak.
In addition, DualSculpting, which utilizes two devices to simultaneously treat symmetrical areas, can further expedite the process. It’s especially useful when targeting flanks, thighs, and upper arms.
