Losing the Fat is Cooooooool
- Posted on: Jan 30 2017
But that’s the cold truth with CoolSculpting at Northcoast Laser Cosmetics. We were the first provider to bring CoolSculpting to the area in 2011, and we’ve been putting the deep freeze on fat ever since.
Some people still don’t really know about CoolSculpting, however. So, here’s some background on this great procedure at Northcoast.
CoolSculpting is a relatively new procedure that destroys fat cells with targeted freezing. It doesn’t use lasers, sonic waves, or surgery to remove the fat cells. It does not damage surrounding tissue.
How does CoolSculpting work?
In a CoolSculpting session, cooling panels are positioned on the area to be treated. Then the skin and tissue in the area are drawn up between two cooling panels using light suction. The device is then activated and delivers controlled cooling into the tissue below. The temperature is set to 55 degrees Fahrenheit. At that temperature, only the fat cells freeze, while the surrounding tissues remain unharmed. This process is called cryolipolysis. Once the fat cells are frozen (also called crystallized) they begin to die. It can take a few days or a few weeks, but over time roughly 20 to 25% of the fat cells in the targeted area die. The body then discards them naturally. The remaining fat layer, now 25% less dense, condenses back into a single thinner layer.
How long does it take?
A CoolSculpting session at Northcoast Laser takes from one to three hours, depending on the areas to be treated. The procedure is pain-free and patients don’t even need to pay attention — they can read, browse the web on their laptops, listen to music, or even take a nap. There isn’t any recovery time, either, so patients can immediately return to their typical activities.
As the fat cells continue to die and the body flushes them away, your results keep improving. Patients can start to see results after around three weeks, as the body begins to remove the dead fat cells. More prominent results show themselves after one month and keep improving for up to four months.
