Non-invasive body contouring treatments such as CoolSculpting® might be a great alternative to liposuction, especially for patients who want to avoid the prolonged downtime and risks that come with surgeries. The licensed providers at Ambiance MD prefer FDA-approved CoolSculpting® to other technologies due to its unique benefits.
Despite the proliferation of many non invasive body contouring treatments, CoolSculpting® offers one notable advantage: It has been FDA-cleared for the treatment of many fatty areas. Other non-invasive body contouring treatments, such as those involving the use of laser and ultrasound, typically have been only cleared for a limited number of areas.
Eliminates the Risks Associated with Surgery
CoolSculpting® is a good alternative to liposuction for patients who want to avoid surgery, particularly its prolonged downtime and risks. This is also a great option for individuals who are poor candidates for surgery-based body contouring because of their medical condition.
Clinical studies have shown that CoolSculpting® results in 20-25 percent fat reduction through a process called cryolipolysis, in which the fat cells are destroyed via temperature. Within weeks, the body gradually flushes out the dead cells through the excretory and lymphatic system. As with any FDA-approved technologies, CoolSculpting® has been extensively studied before it was made available to the US market. It has also received approval from different parts of the world.
The risk of cold burns and blisters is almost eliminated since the cooling panels are fitted with systems (such as gel pads and temperature control) that prevent freezing the skin. Furthermore, fat freezes at a higher temperature than water and other soft tissues, so unintended injury is extremely rare.
Once your body has completely expelled the dead fat cells, which can take from weeks to months, you can expect a smoother, more slender silhouette. Take note that once the fats are destroyed, the body will not replace them provided that you maintain a healthy weight or at least avoid large weight gain.
You can return to work on the same day after this non-invasive body contouring treatment, making this ideal for anyone with a busy schedule. In addition, it does not entail any special post-procedure measures.
