When you think about areas that accumulate stubborn fat, you might think of your abdomen or thighs. CoolSculpting® treats nine body areas, even under the chin and the upper arms. CoolSculpting® addresses the most common areas where men and women struggle with their most hard-to-budge fat.
What is CoolSculpting®?
Even those who lead a healthy lifestyle can struggle with fat that hangs on despite all their efforts. CoolSculpting® offers a non-invasive way to eliminate fat cells and sculpt your problem areas. This treatment works by freezing fat cells so the body can eliminate them. The Chill at Willow Aesthetics team is completely dedicated to CoolSculpting®. They have extensive training that helps make us a CoolSculpting® Masters Certified Practice.
How Does CoolSculpting® Work?
CoolSculpting® works by freezing fat cells without harming the surrounding tissues. As the CoolSculpting® applicators lower the temperature, fat cells start to crystallize. Freezing damages fat cell membranes, and your body’s lymphatic system will remove these cells. This treatment works to slim and sculpt problem areas to achieve a more contoured figure. If your healthy lifestyle has not helped you shape those challenging spots, CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive option with little to no downtime.
What Areas Can Be Treated With CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® applicators can treat large areas like the abdomen, small ones under the chin, or anything in between. It is FDA-cleared to treat nine body areas:
- Flanks (love handles)
- Upper arms
- Back fat
- Bra fat
- Under the chin
- Under the jawline
- Under the buttocks (banana roll)
Many people choose to have CoolSculpting® in more than one spot. Depending on the treatment location, you may be able to have multiple areas in the same session. CoolSculpting® can target these areas even when other methods have not helped. Unlike methods like liposuction, CoolSculpting® is completely non-invasive.
Is There Any Downtime After CoolSculpting®?
You may notice that your skin looks red and feels sensitive or numb for up to a few days to weeks after treatment. You can return to your daily routine immediately after your session. Your Chill at Willow expert will explain exactly what you should expect after treatment. The lack of downtime makes CoolSculpting® a popular option for those with no time to stay home and recover.
When Will I See My Results After CoolSculpting®?
Your lymphatic system takes time to filter away the fat cells frozen with CoolSculpting®. You may start to notice results after several weeks. Full results develop over a few months. CoolSculpting® can remove up to 25% of treated fat in one session. Fat cells do not grow back, but those remaining in the area can change size if your weight changes. Maintaining a stable weight will keep your results looking slim and sculpted.
Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting®
Most people make good candidates for CoolSculpting®. This treatment is safe for all skin types and tones. Ideal candidates are close to their goal weight but struggling with problem areas of fat. You might not be a good candidate for CoolSculpting® if you have certain medical conditions. Your CoolSculpting® specialist will make sure the treatment is safe and can achieve the results you want.
