Are you struggling with pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise efforts? Many people find that, after they lose weight, they are still left with areas of fat that simply won’t budge, leaving them frustrated that they still don’t have the sleek physique they have worked so hard to attain. Now, there is a solution: CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting uses cold temperatures to freeze fat cells so you look slim and toned. If you are considering CoolSculpting in Mt.Kisco and the surrounding Westchester County Area , here is what you can expect.
Before the procedure, the doctor at your weight loss clinic will review your medical history, including your current weight and your efforts to lose weight. Since CoolSculpting is not a substitute for weight loss, it is most effective when you have achieved your goal weight and are simply left with stubborn fat pockets. Your doctor will also ensure you don’t have any medical conditions that could make CoolSculpting unsafe for you and that the kind of fat you want to target can be treated effectively with this procedure.
During your CoolSculpting treatment, your doctor will apply a gel to the treatment area and then apply a cooling device. This device has a vacuum that pulls the skin into the applicator, so mild tugging and pinching is possible. The device applies intense cold temperatures to the skin in the treatment area to freeze the fat cells. Most people find treatment comfortable enough to read, check emails, and nap during CoolSculpting. After five or 10 minutes of treatment, most patients are completely unaware of the cold or the sensation of the device.
Because CoolSculpting is a non-surgical procedure, most patients return to their usual activities immediately afterward. You may experience some tingling, numbness, and pain in the treatment area, but these symptoms are temporary and will subside on their own. It is also common to have redness in the treatment area for up to two weeks. Once the frozen fat cells are eliminated from the body, they are gone for good, and you are ready to enjoy your sleeker shape.
