The New Alternative To Liposuction: What is CoolSculpting?

The New Alternative To Liposuction: What is CoolSculpting?

Zeltiq CoolSculpting is a new non evasive cosmetic procedure that gets rid of unwanted fat through the science of Cryolipolysis, or the disintegration of fat cells by freezing. Cooling panels are applied to freeze fats in various areas of the body. The frozen fat will then be flushed away by the body after some period of time. It is an ideal alternative to liposuction and other risky weight loss surgeries. It is most commonly used to treat fat cells in the stomach and back area.


Advantages Of Zeltiq over Other Fat Removal Treatments.

The Zeltiq CoolSculpting procedure is proven safe and practical. It has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration in 2010. Patients who undergo this procedure feel very little discomfort compared to patients who undergo liposuction and other surgical procedures. The entire procedure can be done without an anesthesia. The worst side effects it could have are a little soreness and redness that eventually numb due to the low temperature applied to the treated areas.

As such, patents can get back to their daily routine right away. The treatment also requires only a short fraction of time, usually about an hour per session. Over all, the length of time needed for the actual procedure and for recovery is very short compared to liposuction which takes months to recuperate.

While the results of the CoolSculpting procedure may take up to several months to be visible, they are long term and efficient. The treatment can be repeated at least two months after. The costs are much cheaper than liposuction too- each procedure can cost from $1000-$2000 depending on the size and number of areas treated.

There’s one thing to remember though, CoolSculpting is a body contouring treatment, not a primary weight loss solution. Your doctor should still be the one who decide if you are ideal to undergo the treatment. It removes frozen fat cells in the body, but does not prevent them from returning. One should maintain proper diet and regular exercise to be able to permanently keep a nice figure.
