CoolSculpting in Las Vegas is a revolutionary technology that uses a precisely controlled cooling method called Cryolipolysis which targets, cools and eliminates fat cells. After a CoolSculpting procedure the body continues to break down the treated fat cells, now in a crystallized or frozen state, leading to fat cell death. Over the next two to four months they are naturally flushed from the body.
CoolSculpting procedure is designed to target and destroy 20%-25% of the fat cells in the treated area. Diet, exercise and other procedures may shrink fat cells, leaving an open opportunity to increase the size of those same fat cells from a lifestyle shift. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. Cool Sculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. Over the course of the following weeks after your treatment, your body processes the fat and eliminates it from the body naturally. While dieting and exercise makes the fat cells smaller, this fat freezing procedure gets rid of them completely, allowing you to enjoy positive and long-lasting results of CoolSculpting!
Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting in Las Vegas?If you haven't heard of CoolSculpting, it is a noninvasive procedure that uses cooling technology to target and crystallize fat cells. The crystallized fat cells gradually die off, then are naturally diminished from your body. In the weeks and months following the treatment, the remaining fat cells condense, reducing the fat layer. Sounds great, doesn't it?
It was pretty great and as weeks have passed I see my love handles slowly disappearing! So let me walk you through exactly how this went:
Step one: Consultation
Just like any procedure, you must attend a consultation, where the doctor goes over the procedure with you and explains the risks. I met with Dr. Sundin at MBody for my consultation. He looked at my flanks and determined that CoolSculpting was a good option for me to obtain the look I want.
CoolSculpting is not always a good option for everyone. According to the CoolSculpting website, "Unlike weight-loss surgery, the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight-loss solution for people who are obese. Good candidates for the CoolSculpting procedure have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of."
Step two: Schedule appointment
I excitedly scheduled my appointment for October 11 to say goodbye to those love handles forever.
Step three: Appointment time
Since this is a noninvasive procedure, you don't have to prep, you just show up ready to kiss your extra fat goodbye. Ps. If you plan on getting your love handles CoolSculpted, I suggest wearing sweatpants or yoga pants to your appointment. Your sides will be numb and it will feel very strange pulling up jeans after the treatment (I made this mistake).
Once inside your personal treatment room, you will be asked to put on very unattractive paper underwear and a hospital gown, this will protect your clothes from getting any goo on them.
Now it's time to get down to the nitty-gritty! Dr. Sundin put giant marks on the areas I was having treated and the nurse began the process.
Step four: Very cold gooey stuff
Before the CoolSculpting machine is attached to your love handles, the nurse sanitizes the area and applies a very cold goo like pad to the area (think ultrasound gel and honey mixed together and put in the freezer).
The machine is then suctioned on to your love handles. This sounds painful, but I swear to you it is not! It just feels like you have a light dumbbell resting on your side. Each side is treated for 30 minutes separately, so the procedure takes about one hour.
After the 30 minutes is up, the machine is removed and the nurse will then massage the area to break up the "fat crystals." When the machine was first taken off of my side, I was in a little pain, but once the nurse massaged the area it felt much better! My sides were numb for about three or so days, but this is totally normal! Some people can feel numbness for a few weeks.
I had my doubts going into the treatment, but those doubts are gone! When I look at myself in the mirror, I see a significant difference in the size of my love handles. I would say they have shrunk about 30 percent and it hasn't even been three months since the treatment.
If you are considering getting CoolSculpting, I would highly suggest it. The treatment is not only good for love handles, but can be used on the thighs, abdomen, bra fat, back fat, and underneath the buttocks.
CoolSculpting by Zeltiq - Effective Body Contouring Without Surgery Or Liposuction
Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting?This Cool Sculpting review will get you up to speed about what it can do, and if it really works. The science-based company has developed a new medical device designed to help you lose fat in specific trouble areas. This non-invasive procedure, called Cool Sculpting, was created based on the basic concept is to apply extreme COLD temperatures to the fatty area of the body to safely eliminate fat from the body.
How does it work?
The Cool Sculpting process is performed in a doctor's office but does not involve any needles or anesthetics. The procedure begins by using a suction applicator where portions of the skin are sucked up into the applicator. At this point, the cooling process begins causing your skin to be in contact with temperatures that are high enough to transform the fat from a liquid to a solid. Once in the solid formed, the fat cells will slowly begin to be destroyed and will safely be processed through the body.
Does it hurt?
Throughout the procedure there is virtually no pain, some claim to feel a "pulling" or "tugging" effect on their skin but it goes away within about 10 minutes.This should not be considered a weight loss procedure and is only done for those patients who are just slightly overweight. I'll stress in this Cool Sculpting review that yes, it is approved by the FDA but be careful of copy cat procedures and be Absolutely sure to use a real DOCTOR who is experienced in performing the Cool Sculpting procedure.
Currently only certain parts of the body are able to have this treatment done including:
tummy, love handles, back, inner thighs, chin, arms and legs. Zeltiq is currently working on improving the device to allow it to treat other areas of the body, so again, you want to talk with your doctor about any area of your body you want help with.
Other Cool Sculpting reviews have also noted that certain patients have been able to see success with Cool Sculpting, averaging about twenty to forty percent fat loss. While you will begin to see results in about four to six weeks, it may take up to three months to see your full results. Many people are happy with the success of their first procedure but you are able to have up to three procedures done on each area of your body. To add safety to the treatment, there is a required one or two month waiting period between procedures. However, Cool Sculpting methods are VERY expensive and does not actually cure the problem of obesity. Finding a well-rounded exercise and nutrition plan that will get you long-term results is the healthiest approach to losing weight.
