What is CoolSculpting & How Does it Work?
CoolSculpting uses fat freezing technology to permanently eliminate fat. It’s technical name is cryolipolysis. Experts spent years developing the technology, which features one-of-a-kind technology that quite literally freezes and kills fat cells. CoolSculpting gives long-term results that make trouble spots a lot less troubling. Fat cells don’t like cold. Once the cells freeze, your body will eliminate the dead cells in 1-3 months or more, resulting in up to 20%-25% reduction of fat in the treated area.
For individuals with healthy eating habits and an active lifestyle, cryolipolysis is a safe and effective way to reduce excess fat. Coolsculpting is not a weight loss treatment. It is for patients at or near their ideal body weight who want to reduce fat in one or more of the 9-FDA cleared treatment areas.
It is a safe, FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure with minimal to no down time.
What to expect
Many people wonder if CoolSculpting is painful and what it feels like. The good news is, this body sculpting procedure doesn’t require anesthesia and you can return to your normal daily activities right after.
The specialist at PureLee Redefined in Colorado Springs will ensure you are in a relaxed and comfortable position before starting. They will then start the process by placing the CoolSculpting applicator over the target area. At first, you may experience a pulling or tugging sensation followed by cold and minor tingling and burning sensations. After 3-5 minutes, the area will become numb allowing the treatment to be very comfortable as it proceeds.
The treatment time is determined by the type and size of applicator used and by the number of applicators needed to cover the area completely. This is customized for each individual and a free consultation will be needed to assess and develop your own personalized treatment plan. Some common side effects that you may experience are mild redness, swelling, or bruising. These side effects are temporary and will usually subside within a few days to a few weeks.
