CoolSculpting Of Marin County - Is Coolsculpting for Me?
Location-Marin County, California
Should You Consider CoolSculpting ?
There are many people who live in Marin County who have stubborn deposits of fat that just won't seem to go away.No matter how often we exercise, diet, or even apply so-called fat dissolving creams, those unsightly bulges stay put. There;s no answers that are safe for the body. Extreme exercise and starvation diets can cause far more harm than good. While the fat might seem to go away, the body hurts itself by cannibalizing healthy tissue. Some surgical treatments are not an option for certain patients due to fear or allergic concerns for anesthesia. That's where CoolSculpting comes in.
What Is CoolSculpting?
This procedure is a non-invasive fat removal technique designed by two Harvard scientists. Some have called the cooling procedure pseudoscience, hard to back that argument up when the procedure was created by real Ivy League scientists and approved by the FDA for removing fat. Only methods proven to work in removing fat are approved by the FDA – all others are not allowed to legally make claims of removing fat without surgical intervention!
CoolSculpting removes fat by using heat to force blood and fat to separate. The tool then rapidly cools the target area, in essence freezing fat cells. These cells die and are then eliminated by the body. Since the process never uses an invasive tool, no wounds are left behind, no stitches are used, and there is no internal damage possibilities from an inexperienced surgeon.
What About Recovery Time?
If you are thinking about fat removal it is important to understand the recovery time with each method. Most liposuction procedures require some sort of recovery period where the patient rests as their body heals. Wounds must be cleaned, cared for, and allowed to heal before you can return to regular activity. Some medication must be avoided in order to allow this healing with minimal blood loss. Some over the counter drugs can thin the blood and cause bleeding or bruising.
CoolSculpting has no lengthy recovery time. As with any procedure there may be some uncomfortable sensations, though these generally fade quickly with CoolSculpting. Bruising or redness may occur – this typically heals very quickly. Numbness and tingling may also be noticed and can take some time to go away. Unlike surgical fat removal, numbness and tingling are extremely rarely permanent with an non-surgical procedure like CoolSculpting.
When Will I see the Full Results?
Full results are generally not seen right away with this procedure. Some swelling may be present after the procedure has been completed. The swelling goes away in about one to two weeks and then the body takes over. Since fat is not surgically removed the dead cells must be eliminated by the body. Every person is different and the length of time can take up to four months for total results to be shown.
