30 Dec Allure Lists CoolSculpting as “Safe To-Do at a MediSpa”: Here’s Why You Shouldn’t
CoolSculpting is a means of contouring and sculpting the body by freezing away small amounts of unwanted fat. It’s non-invasive and effective, so why not get it done at a MediSpa? There are many reasons—starting with the kind of results you want to have. RefinedMD offers both surgical and non-surgical options to achieve all of your skin goals, and that includes contouring the body. Home to board-certified MDs and leading estheticians, you want these kinds of experts taking care of your treatments since the skill of the provider is just as important as the treatment itself.
CoolSculpting can be administered using various handheld tools, each designed for different parts of the body and face. When you freeze away fat, it is critical to target the right amount of fat at the right temperature. Once fat cells are removed, whether from CoolSculpting or a more aggressive option like liposuction, they never “grow back.” Remove too much fat, and it can look much worse than having an excess of fat in the area. Plus, the skill of the provider can also help determine how effective each cycle is. Most people require 4 – 6 cycles per treatment area in order to get ideal results. Unfortunately, you may need many more cycles if you depend on a provider who isn’t skilled (or who doesn’t have the latest CoolSculpting technology).
Why CoolSculpting Works
The science behind CoolSculpting was discovered by accident in the 1970s. Scientists found that children who ate a lot of frozen treats had less fat in their face than others—and it turns out fat gets killed when exposed to precise lower temperatures. This has, unfortunately, led to social media trends that try a DIY approach to freezing away fat. This is useless at best and dangerous at worst. The good news is that CoolSculpting is fast, easy, safe, and actually works (when done correctly).
CoolSculpting technology is getting better with each passing year. Now, new handheld devices make it even faster, more comfortable, and more effective than ever. It’s the perfect time to try it out for yourself.
Is CoolSculpting for You?
Even though CoolSculpting works by targeting and freezing unwanted fat, it isn’t a “weight loss” procedure. You may not see any difference on the scale after all CoolSculpting is complete, but you will notice a difference in fit of clothes, measurements, and photos. A good provider will ensure photos are taken and will help you track your progress. Full results will be seen six months after the treatments end, but you will start to see some results one month after your first cycle. It takes time for frozen fat to be metabolized and removed from the body, but this means that if you start right now then you will be able to show off full results just in time for swimsuit season.
Both men and women are good candidates for CoolSculpting. However, if you have a large amount of fat to lose, it’s typically best to undergo your weight loss journey first before opting for CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting is reserved for those at or close to their goal weight and is a body sculpting treatment. If you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting, appointments take less than one hour and there is no downtime. You can immediately get back to your day after your session without needing a recovery period.
Combining CoolSculpting and Other Treatments
CoolSculpting exclusively contours the body by targeting unwanted fat. If you also want to build muscle, you might combine CoolSculpting with Emsculpt. If you want to target cellulite, treatments like Emtone might be for you. Improving the quality of the skin itself may call for laser skin rejuvenation or a chemical peel. Combining treatments is usually the best way to get the results you want faster. Your goals will be discussed during a consultation with one of our CoolSculpting experts.
If you’ve tried CoolSculpting in years past, you can also get CoolSculpting again. The technology is always improving just like our bodies are always changing. CoolSculpting is an excellent winter treatment and one of the most popular options to undergo during the holidays. Take some time out just for you this season to get a head-start on your 2023 resolutions. Contact RefinedMD to schedule your consultation by calling the office or filling out the online contact form.
