It might be cold and gray outside, but in just a few short weeks, the warm, sunny weather will be here — and with it, slimmer, skimpier clothing. After a winter of heavy sweaters and sweatshirts, seeing yourself in your summer wear for the first time in months can be a little, well, disappointing.
The good news: CoolSculpting® can help you get the summer body you want — as long as you start treatment now. At Dermatology Associates of Central New Jersey in Old Bridge, Freehold, and Union, New Jersey, our team offers the state-of-the-art CoolSculpting system to help you get rid of stubborn pockets of jiggly, unwanted fat for good, revealing sleeker contours just in time for summer. Here’s how it works.
The slimming science of cold
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat removal system, which means it gets rid of fat without surgery, incisions, or a long recovery time. Unlike other non-invasive fat-elimination treatments that use waves of heated energy to “melt away” fat, CoolSculpting uses a special type of “cold energy” to freeze fat cells.
The CoolSculpting system uses a special device to transmit cold energy painlessly through the surface of your skin. As the cold energy reaches the layer of tissue where fat cells are found, it targets those cells, causing their walls to become brittle. The system’s special massage action breaks down brittle cell walls, and over the next few weeks, your body’s waste disposal system carries away the fatty debris.
Because CoolSculpting relies on your body to eliminate cellular waste, starting treatment now gives your body plenty of time to do its work, so you can have the body you want just in time for summer. Depending on the amount of fat you want to have removed, you might benefit from an additional treatment, which can also be scheduled before summer.
Benefits of CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting can be used to eliminate unwanted fat in many areas of your body, including your belly, waist, flanks, buttocks, thighs, back, arms, and bra area. There’s even a special adapter that can be used to get rid of fat under your chin (the submental area of your face).
During treatment, you’ll feel a little tingling as the cold energy penetrates your skin. Before too long, the cold numbs your skin, so all you feel is the massage action as it works on breaking down those fat cell walls.
Even better — with CoolSculpting, there’s no downtime. As soon as your treatment is over, you can go back to your daily routine. Over the next few months, you’ll see those slimmer, sleeker contours emerge — and that means your body will be in great shape for swimsuit season by the time warm weather arrives.
CoolSculpting isn’t designed to remove a lot of fat, and it’s not meant as a substitute for diet and exercise or for liposuction treatments. But for people at or near their target weight who want to get rid of isolated areas of unwanted fat, CoolSculpting can be a great solution, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
