Exercise and healthy eating are essential for getting in shape and toning up, but sometimes pockets of unwanted fat linger no matter what you try. Surgical procedures such as liposuction or tummy tucks can remove unwanted fat, but what if you’re not ready for plastic surgery? Enter body sculpting.
Body sculpting refers to the nonsurgical, permanent removal of excess fat cells. Body sculpting relies on the power of heat or cold to destroy and eliminate fat cells. Here at AM Facial Plastics in Beverly Hills and Santa Barbara, California, Dr. Arash Moradzadeh offers many different types of body sculpting, including CoolSculpting®, truSculptⓇ iD, truSculptⓇ flex, and BodyTiteⓇ.
In this blog, we zero in on one treatment in particular. Here are five reasons to consider CoolSculpting.
1. Quick and simple procedure that yields lasting results
Unlike plastic surgery, the CoolSculpting treatment is quick, simple, and requires no downtime. CoolSculpting works by placing the applicators over your trouble areas. The cold temperatures damage your fat cells — but not your skin — in a process called cryolipolysis.
Each treatment eliminates up to 20%-25% of unwanted fat cells. Your lymphatic system then flushes the damaged fat cells out of your body over the course of the next few weeks. This means that even though it can take some time for results to show, the fat loss is permanent and you can maintain your look as long as you keep up a healthy lifestyle.
The treatment process takes less than 30 minutes, depending on which body area you’re treating. CoolSculpting is so quick and simple, you can even squeeze in a session on your lunch break! But just because the process is simple and quick doesn’t make it any less effective. CoolSculpting delivers lasting results.
2. Natural-looking results without any incisions
CoolSculpting treatments don’t give you new contours. Instead, these body sculpting sessions remove fat, revealing your body’s natural curves. In addition, CoolSculpting treatments do all of this without the need for anesthetics, incisions, or injections.
3. Personalized treatments
We know everyone has their own aesthetic goals, and CoolSculpting can help you reach those goals. CoolSculpting can treat your:
- Upper arms
- Inner or outer thighs
- Submental (under the chin) and submandibular (under the jawline) areas
CoolSculpting can also be used to reduce fat in the area beneath your buttocks. For an even more personalized experience, you can treat multiple areas during the same appointment.
4. No downtime required
One of the significant benefits of CoolSculpting is that there’s no downtime. Although the cryolipolysis process freezes your fat cells in the targeted areas, all surrounding areas are untouched.
During your treatment, you can sit back, relax, listen to music, read, or even catch up on email. Once we remove the applicators, we briefly massage the treatment area to kickstart the fat reduction, and that’s it! You’re free to carry on the rest of your day.
5. Improved self-confidence
When you look good, you feel good. It can be discouraging to follow a strict diet and workout regularly only to continually struggle with exercise-defiant fat. Whether it’s a belly pooch or love handles or even a double chin, CoolSculpting not only enhances your contours, but the results it brings also boost your self-confidence.
