While it’s still a relatively novel procedure, the benefits of Coolsculpting have made it a household name in a short amount of time. That’s not entirely surprising. Coolsculpting is a procedure that is able to eliminate unwanted fat and help you contour your body–all without the need for surgery. Most patients can just walk out of the clinic and resume their daily activities after a Coolsculpting session.
What Are the Primary Benefits of Coolsculpting?
Anytime you start advertising an easy way to eliminate fat, you’re going to attract some eyeballs. And that’s precisely what’s happened with Coolsculpting. There are plenty of eyeballs on this particular procedure!
That’s why it’s worth talking about the benefits of Coolsculpting. These days, patients have plenty of non invasive body contouring options. So why should they choose Coolsculpting? In theory, they could also choose Sonobello or Kybella–any number of ways to go. What makes Coolsculpting a preferable option to many patients? Well, let’s take a look at the benefits of Coolsculpting to see if we can answer that question. (As always, you should run all of these questions by your local cosmetic or plastic surgeon–this article is intended for entertainment purposes only.)
Benefit #1: No Down Time
Coolsculpting technology has come a long way since its introduction. It’s faster, more accurate, more powerful. But one of the chief benefits of Coolsculpting is that there’s no significant downtime associated with it. Most patients are able to come in, have the procedure performed, and return to their normal activities.
Occasionally, some patients will need a little bit of downtime to recuperate from the procedure. But that tends to be the exception rather than the rule. For most patients, the cold from the Coolsculpting device itself numbs the targeted area of the body. This means that most patients feel only minimal discomfort during the Coolsculpting procedure.
Typically, there are very few restrictions put on movement or behavior after your Coolsculpting appointment. As has been mentioned, patients can return to whatever normal activities they were doing beforehand. Don’t get me wrong–you probably want to to wait a few days to run a marathon or anything. But typical, daily activities should be good.
Benefit #2: You Can Treat a Wide Area
Some non invasive body contouring options are great for one area of the body. Kybella, for example, is remarkably effective, but it’s only FDA approved to treat fat along the jawline. That’s one of the biggest benefits of Coolsculpting: its flexibility.
Generally speaking, Coolsculpting can be used to treat just about any area of the body (obviously, if you have some out of the ordinary requests, you’ll want to talk to your cosmetic surgeon first, but you get the idea). Not only that, but Coolsculpting can be used to treat broad areas of your body. That is, any of those wide areas of your body (torso, back, etc) can effectively be treated with Coolsculpting procedures.
Coolsculpting is capable of treating:
The area of the body you’re treating will determine how long your appointment will be or if you will require several sessions to get the results you want.
Benefit #3: Coolsculpting Works
Of course, the single most important benefit of Coolsculpting is also pretty straightforward: it works. Coolsculpting is designed to mitigate and eliminate unwanted areas of fat and it does just that. The newest generation of Coolsculpting devices are the generally considered to be the best yet, and many new clinics are offering the procedure for the first time.
If you want to eliminate fat but you don’t want to undergo surgery, you aren’t alone. And now there’s a procedure that can help you accomplish your goals. Of course, results from Coolsculpting tend to be on the subtle side. It’s not going to perform the same kinds of transformations as something like liposuction.
But not everyone wants–or needs–liposuction. For patients who are looking to appear just a little more slender, Coolsculpting is a great possibility.
Body Contouring Without Surgery
Coolsculpting is one of the most reliable in a relatively novel line of procedures: body contouring without surgery. There was a time when liposuction was the only option for patients who wanted to eliminate stubborn areas of fat. And liposuction recovery can be rather intimidating.
That’s why providing patients with more options is a good thing. Ultimately, patients will be able to choose which option is best for them and move forward. The benefits of Coolsculpting, for the most part, stand on their own merit. So if you have questions about this procedure, contact your local cosmetic surgeon or medical spa today.
