What You Should Know About Coolsculpting Treatments

Health & Medical Blog

Coolsculpting is a cosmetic procedure in which freezing temperatures are implemented to freeze fat cells that ultimately kill the cells inside the body. The frozen fat cells die off after being frozen. The reduction in fat cells can smooth out your skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite and reduce the look of fat on the body, especially on the thighs, stomach, back and sides. This treatment is effective in treating small amounts of fat, but may not work on those that have excessive amounts of fat, as in those that are obese. If you are considering Coolsculpting, there are a few things you should know. Read on for information about this treatment.

It Is Non-Invasive

This is a non-invasive treatment that can be done in the physician's office. It uses freezing temperatures on the area of the body you want treated to freeze the fat. There is no need for surgery, no need for anesthesia or getting cut open in any way. This is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure, unlike liposuction or gastro-bypass surgeries. This is more for those that have a little bit of fat that they are not able to lose on their own, not for those that are considered obese.

You Could Gain Back Weight

If you gain back weight, the fat may produce in those areas where you had Coolsculpting performed. The cells that were frozen will die, and will not return, but if you put weight on, it could cause new fat cells to accumulate in that area. If you have had Coolsculpting, you also need to exercise and continue to diet to keep weight off, and to prevent gaining weight in any way.

Larger Areas Require More Coolsculpting Treatments

You may need more than one treatment for it to be effective. If you are trying to treat a larger area, or multiple areas, you're going to need more treatments in order to treat them all. More treatments may be costly for you, so it's best to discuss how many treatments you may need with the physician beforehand.

Some Conditions May Hinder This Procedure

There are some medical conditions that may prevent you from getting this procedure. You need to discuss the medical conditions you have with your physician or with the Coolsculpting office about your medical conditions to be sure you qualify for this treatment.

If you have some pockets of fat on the body that you just cannot lose no matter what you do, Coolsculpting may be right for you. Talk to your medical physician about whether or not you can have this type of procedure and make an appointment with a Coolsculpting service to discuss having this fat removal treatment.

Tips for Living a Great Life with Chronic Illness

I was always very healthy throughout my childhood, but when I became a teenager, I was diagnosed with a chronic illness. Thankfully, I had the support of my loving family to help keep me upbeat during a time that could have led to me experiencing the depression that some do after they first learn they will have an illness for life. I am very grateful for the advice I have gotten throughout my life, so I decided to create a blog where I can share all of the advice that has helped me live a happy, healthy life, despite having a chronic illness. Since I am on a medication that suppresses my immune system, I have also studied up on many other illnesses and tips for avoiding them and treating them. I plan to post health tips for people of a variety of ages and suffering with various illnesses!
