A look at the critical factors that contribute to the success of Coolsculpting

Tuesday, January 14, 2020

Thanks to society’s ever-increasing fascination with ‘selfies’, more and more people begin to rely on aesthetic procedures to beautify and help achieve and refine their best look. The focus has shifted away from surgical procedures in favour of less invasive techniques. This trend extends beyond the facial rejuvenation market to include body contouring as well.
 Available statistics from a consumer study, suggest that a staggering 23 million people are interested in trying out a non-surgical procedure aimed at removing body fat. One such procedure, where requests for the treatment have skyrocketed, is CoolsculptingCoolsculpting in London is a safe alternative to traditional surgical fat reduction techniques and offers noticeable results in as little as 6-8 weeks – depending on the number of sessions recieved.
What makes freezing fat cells so effective in toning the body
Impressive results derived from medically reviewed science
The freezing fat cells procedure has been the focus of thousands of medical,clinical studies, to ensure that it is medically sound and safe. The procedure uses the process of cryolipolysis, together with revolutionary medical technology, to achieve a more defined and sculpted body shape. 
Tenacious fat cells that simply refuse to disappear through a fitness routine, or through a healthy diet, are completely eliminated through a natural process, rather than shrunk. 
 Exposing cells in the targeted area to extreme cold temperatures destroys them, resulting in their cell death. It is important to note, this freezing process does not harm any of the tissue or skin on or around the treatment site. This is because fat is more susceptible to temperature relative to the skin.
Destroyed cells exit the body through a natural process
What happens to the cells once they are destroyed? The body uses its own lymphatic drainage system to release the destroyed cells into the bloodstream, which are then excreted by the body naturally.
Treatment designed to tone body - not lose pounds
Unlike an overall weight loss programme, where the goal is to reduce body weight, the focus with fat freezing is to tone and recontour specific areas. A patient may have the ideal body weight but can still keep hold of fat in certain areas of the body. 
The Coolsculpting applicators are placed on fat pockets in problematic fat-retaining areas of the body. Depending on the number of areas being treated, a session usually works on one treatment site at a time but if the clinic has multiple machine you can ‘Dualsculpt’, which means you can have two areas treated at the same time.
 Scalpel-free and non-invasive
The technology used at a Coolsculpting clinic does not rely on lasers or needles to eliminate fat deposits in order to achieve a toned body. For a patient, this means no pain, scarring or downtime. Compared to surgical fat reduction methods, fat freezing offers minimal risk to the patient. 
Swelling is less likely to occur and, as no needles are used, the odds of a patient developing an infection are minimal.
What a patient should keep in mind is that it takes a number of weeks before results can be seen. For some, it may take up to three months before the desired results are noticed.
Like with all medical procedures the results can vary, dependent on medical history, age and life lifestyle factors of each patient. 
The treatment is especially beneficial for patients looking to enhance their body shape. For more information on the procedure and to determine patient suitability, get in touch with The Cosmetic Skin Clinic to schedule a consultation.
