Although you may see some results after your treatment, the majority of your results will take a little time. Your body has to process and eliminate the dead cells of fat. Once you have eliminated the fat cells, they will not return. CoolSculpting® is also referred to as cryolipolysis. A special device is used by the medical professional to freeze your stubborn cells of fat beneath your skin. Your liver will gradually eliminate the damaged cells from your body over time. Your procedure should take an hour or less depending on the size of the areas you want to have treated. This treatment is not new, is safe and received approval from the FDA in 2012. Studies have shown the number of fat cells in the areas you have treated will be decreased by 20% to 25%.
You should begin to see noticeable results a few days after your treatment. Your optimal results will require between one and four months to appear. This procedure is effective and safe for removing fat cells in numerous areas. This includes:
• Upper neck
• Beneath the buttocks and the buttocks
• Beneath the chin
• Beneath the armpits
This treatment is safe and effective for decreasing cells of fat in a small area. This is not a replacement for exercising and healthy eating. You should not have this procedure in an attempt to lose weight. You should not have this procedure to treat obesity. The idea behind the process is dissolving stubborn fat cells that did not shrink through a combination of exercise or diet. If you have a weak immune system or a condition changing or weakening the ability of your body to handle cold, you should not have this procedure. One of the best benefits of this treatment is unlike exercise and diet, your fat cells will be destroyed and eliminated from your body. This means the same cells of fat will be unable to enlarge or return if you gain weight. The procedure offers you additional benefits as well including:
• The procedure has received approval from the FDA.
• Since your results will appear gradually over time, they will look completely natural.
• The chances of your gaining weight after treatment decrease because your fat cells have been destroyed and eliminated from your body.

If you have stubborn fat bulges you have not been able to get rid of, you are probably a good candidate for this treatment. The procedure was created specifically for individuals unable to get rid of undesirable fat through exercise and diet alone. This procedure is not the same as gastric bypass surgery or liposuction because it is not intended for obese individuals or as an option for weight loss. The FDA cleared this procedure for the abdomen, hips and thighs. There have already been more than one million treatments performed all over the world. The procedure has been proven effective and safe for losing fat without the need for surgery. You should be able to get right back to your regular routine after completing your treatment.
You will need to be patient. Although changes may appear within the first three weeks after you have the procedure, you will not see truly dramatic results for about two months. Since your body will keep flushing out the dead fat cells, your results will continue for between four and six months after your treatment. You will not need to take any pills or supplements, change your diet or begin a new exercise routine. This being said, a lot of individuals become motivated to take better care of themselves after their treatment. You may discover you are looking at yourself and life differently after experiencing CoolSculpting® in San Diego. This may result in your living an improved lifestyle. If you should gain weight, it will most likely be spread out evenly resulting in a more attractive appearance.
The concept of this treatment was originally discovered by two Harvard physicians when they realized children enjoying popsicles often get dimples located in their cheeks. The physicians made the connection between fat reduction and frozen water. Fat cells can be affected by cold with no damage to the other tissue or skin. They developed a procedure both safe and precise. The frozen fat cells simply die. The body can then absorb and eliminate the dead cells as time passes. This results in a more sculpted body. If you are a good candidate for this procedure, the odds are high that you will be satisfied with your results. The first step is having an initial consultation with a medical professional.
You will be given a body assessment, be asked questions and shown pictures of individuals who have had this treatment both before and after. This is when you will decide if this treatment is right for your needs. If you decide to proceed, your personalized treatment will be scheduled. You will not experience any pain during your session. You will just relax and enjoy music, a movie, or wi-fi until your treatment is complete.
The Procedure for CoolSculpting®
CoolSculpting® in San Diego is based on cryolipolysis. This is the way your cells respond to cold. Energy is extracted from your layers of fat. This results in the gradual death of your fat cells without causing any damage to the surrounding tissue, muscle and nerves. For several months after the procedure, your fat cells will be sent to your lymphatic system. From there they are eliminated from your body as waste. You do not have to do much in the way of preparation. You do need to be near your ideal weight and in good health. The best candidate is at or close to their ideal weight, fit, healthy and wanting to eliminate stubborn fat that did not respond to eating healthy and exercising. Prior to your procedure, you will need to:
• Make certain the targeted area is free of any injuries and bruises.
• Stop using any medications that thin your blood such as herbal remedies, supplements, ibuprofen, and aspirin.
• If you smoke, you will need to stop a minimum of seven days before your treatment. Smoking will impair your healing process.
• Avoid tanning beds and exposure to the sun.
On the day of your procedure, you should:
• Avoid any heavy meals prior to your procedure.
• Wear loose underwear and clothing.
• Bring along some entertainment such as a smartphone, magazine or book.
Your CoolSculpting® treatment will be performed by a medical professional using a handheld device. The applicators on the device have a similar appearance to the nozzles you might see on a vacuum cleaner. During your procedure, an applicator and gel pad will be applied to the targeted area. Controlled cooling is delivered by the applicator to target the fat. The device is moved across your skin while cooling technology and suction are administered to the targeted area. If there is more than one machine available, you may be able to have multiple areas targeted simultaneously. You may feel the glide of the device across your skin or a little suction but you should not experience any pain.
Right after your treatment, the medical professional will massage the treated area. This will break up any of the deeper frozen tissue. This enables your body to begin absorbing the dead fat cells. Your treatment will take between one and four hours. You can decrease fat in numerous areas including:
• Lower and upper abdomen
• Love handles or flanks
• The area beneath the chin or a double chin
• The banana roll or the area under the buttocks
• Outer and inner thighs
• Back and bra fat
You should not experience any downtime after your session. You may see a little redness in the area you had treated. This should not cause you any concern and will disappear naturally. You should start seeing results in a few weeks. Your improvements will continue because the process of flushing the fat from your body will take several months. Depending on which part of your body you had treated, you may need another session. The treatment targets specific parts of your body. This means unless you want to have another area treated, you will most likely not need another procedure.
This treatment is not a replacement for living a healthy lifestyle and is not appropriate for obesity. The best way to maintain your results is to exercise on a regular basis and consume a balanced and healthy diet.

You will be impressed with your results due to the natural appearance. Unfortunately, liposuction can cause misshapen bulges, scarring and dimpling. This treatment offers you gradual and natural-looking results. You will notice some results within the first three weeks. During the next three to six months, your results should show a significant improvement. Since your results are gradual, people will simply think you have lost weight or started exercising. Your secret is yours to keep.
This treatment is a lot more affordable than surgery, anesthesia and taking days or even weeks off of work. The risk of surgical complications has also been eliminated.
Your treatment is targeted. This means you can finally get rid of the stubborn fat you could not lose by dieting and exercising. You can target the area where the fat persists. Over time, a fat reduction occurs.
One of the best aspects of this procedure is the fat cells targeted are removed permanently. Dieting only decreases the size of the fat cells but they are still in your body. This makes it much easier for the fat to return. Even if you should gain weight after your treatment, the fat should be distributed more evenly.
