Is The CoolSculpting Hype Real? | O'Neill Plastic Surgery

Why CoolSculpting? Is the Hype Real?

Cryolipolysis is the science behind the popular CoolSculpting procedure. If you are at or close to your ideal weight, and have maintained that weight, but still experience pockets or “bulges” of fat deposits, you may be an excellent candidate for the procedure. It is a non-invasive technique that does not require surgery.CoolSculpting Charleston, SC

Freezing Fat Cells

Cryolipolysis techniques rely upon the basic sensitivity of fatty tissues. Fat cells are much more sensitive to cold than skin, muscle, bone, and nerve cells. Therefore, cell death occurs at a higher temperature in fat tissue. Applying targeted cold to areas of concern reduces fat cells. The dead cells are then absorbed by the body, resulting in a smoother, more toned look.

CoolSculpting Capabilities

While CoolSculpting represents an innovative treatment, there are some factors that need to be taken into consideration. The size of the deposits to be addressed and the desired results are important considerations. CoolSculpting is best for targeting small areas of fatty tissue in patients for whom surgery is a poor option.

A Natural Result

For many patients, the lack of dramatic change associated with CoolSculpting may make it a more attractive option. Not only do results develop over time, there’s no downtime associated with the procedure. One of the great things about it is that no one will know that you’ve had a cosmetic procedure unless you choose to share your experience. All people will see is the smoother, more toned profile as your body reabsorbs the fat cells broken down during the treatment. The results develop naturally.
