When people first started to realize that they can use surgical procedures to craft or to sculpt their body, these procedures were all the rage. During the 90’s and early 2000’s, a lot of emphasis was put on using surgical and invasive techniques to help a person remove stubborn pockets of fat. While these procedures have done a lot of good, not everyone is a candidate for them or wants to experience the downtime. For these individuals, we offer non-surgical solutions such as CoolSculpting® at Finesse.
Why Choose CoolSculpting®?
When it comes to non-surgical body contouring, one of the successful treatments is CoolSculpting®. CoolSculpting® is a unique procedure that has received FDA clearance as a non-invasive way to remove fat.
This procedure is not designed to be a weight loss procedure. Instead, it is classified as a body sculpting procedure because it works in conjunction with your diet and exercise. When a person diets and when they exercise, they lose weight. The problem is that a person cannot determine from which parts of their body they are going to lose weight. So while they may lose weight in their face, arms, and back, they are often stuck with extra deposits of fat on their abdomen, the love handles, or on their thighs. CoolSculpting® allows a person to have noticeable results by removing fat from the stubborn areas.
The technology behind CoolSculpting® was developed by medical professionals at Harvard University. They were monitoring a group of children who consistently ate popsicles throughout the day and noticed that the side of the face where the children sucked on the popsicles began to develop a dimple. With further study, they realized that when fat is cooled to a particular temperature, the fat cells die and are absorbed into the body. This observation led to the development of CoolSculpting® technology.
What Can I Expect During My Treatment?
The CoolSculpting® treatment plan will vary from individual to individual. Generally, the treatment sessions last for one hour, with the option to have more than one treatment during the same visit. One of the main benefits of using CoolSculpting® is that multiple applicators can be used on different parts of the body at the same time. This increases the speed of the results you get and makes it easier for you to reach your goals.
Is the Fat Permanently Gone?
Some may wonder, where do the fat cells go? Once they are frozen, they die. And then they are eliminated from the body. Once the fat cells are gone from the body, they are gone for good. This does not mean that a person cannot put on weight again. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle can help you maintain your results for the long term.
