Here’s what you need to know about CoolSlimming®.
Who May Benefit from CoolSlimming®?
This isn’t a procedure that’s meant to a weight loss solution. Ideals candidates for CoolSlimming® are individuals with “fat bulges” in certain areas that haven’t responded well to diet and exercise efforts. For some people, it can be a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Particular areas that may respond well to this non-invasive procedure include:
• Flanks (“love handles”)
• Chin and chest
• Arms and thighs
• Stomach/lower abdominal area
What Happens Before a Typical Session?
Prior to scheduling a session, a personalized treatment plan will be recommended based on the results of your initial consultation. You’ll be able to discuss your problems areas. Those areas will then be evaluated to determine if CoolSlimming® will likely be effective.
How Is the CoolSlimming® Procedure Performed?
CoolSlimming® works by safely delivering a controlled cooling sensation to certain fat cells within stubborn deposits of fat. It specifically targets fat cells located underneath the skin, which are normally resistant to diet and exercise. Special applicators are used to apply the cold to the affected area.
The treated cells are then frozen, or crystallized. This causes the fat cells to die. Over time, the dead fat cells are metabolized by the body. The result is slimmer, more defined look in the treated area. The fat cells that were treated are gone for good once they have been frozen and eliminated by the body.
What Does the Treatment Feel Like?
The cooling is done in a way that’s very controlled in order to maintain patient comfort as much as possible. The cooling usually begins within the first few minutes of a session. There may be a feeling of intense cold and pressure, but this sensation should go away fairly quickly. Some individuals prefer to listen to music, take a nap, read, or use their preferred device as the session progresses to make the treatment more relaxing.
What Happens After a Session?
This is a non-surgical procedure, so most patients are able to resume their normal activities shortly after completing a session. As for results, you may some immediate improvements after your treatment. However, may see more dramatic results after a few months as your body flushes fat cells out of your system.
