CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure that eliminates unwanted fat by freezing and killing the fat cells. It is typically used on patients with small pockets of stubborn fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise. The results are permanent and long-term, and the procedure requires no downtime. In addition, CoolSculpting is completely safe and comfortable and does not require anesthesia.
CoolSculpting on the Thighs
The thighs can be one of the most difficult areas to lose fat, especially for women. While liposuction also removes stubborn fat from this area, it is an invasive procedure that requires incisions and a significant recovery period. It also requires general or local anesthesia. Freezing the fat is completely non-invasive, safe, and does not require a sedative or anesthesia. It also tones and sculpts the skin and removes unwanted pockets of fat in a similar way that liposuction does, but without the downtime, pain, and scarring.
The procedure works by using a cooling applicator to freeze fat and crystallize the cells, which are later eliminated by your body naturally. Also known as cryolipolysis, this process can be used to slim the outer and inner thighs and other areas that can accumulate unwanted fat. Full results are typically seen within a few months, and some patients may need more than one session to achieve maximum results.
The Ideal Candidate
Cryolipolysis is an effective way to remove stubborn fat, but the procedure may not be for everyone. Ideal candidates are those who are looking for a reduction of fat in small areas. It is not intended to be a weight loss procedure, and patients should be at or near a healthy weight. Significantly overweight patients or individuals who are looking to remove a larger area of fat will typically receive better results with surgical procedures such as liposuction.
Using this innovative cooling mechanism to freeze fat is a great choice if you are struggling with smaller amounts of fat in areas such as the upper legs, buttocks, love handles, stomach, back, and upper arms. Even with diet and exercise, sometimes fat can be stubborn and difficult to remove in your problem areas. Not everyone is ready to go under the knife and endure the downtime associated with liposuction, which is why fat freezing is such a great procedure. In addition, cryolipolysis will leave your skin and body looking more sculpted, toned, and smooth.
