You work hard to reach and maintain your weight loss goals. Sometimes, pockets of fat do not respond to diet or exercise despite your best efforts. If this is the case for you, consider cryo slimming. CoolSculpting, a cryo slimming treatment, can eliminate the fat pockets without the need for surgery or liposuction. At Cryo Revolution, we have years of experience assisting residents of Myrtle Beach, Surfside Beach with weight loss and fat loss through cryo slimming.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting, a type of cryo slimming, is an FDA-approved treatment for use on the body in nine different areas. It can be used on the underside of the chin and jawline, abdomen, thighs, flanks, back, under the buttocks, and upper arms. It's a non-invasive treatment that requires little to no recovery time once completed. The major difference between cryo slimming and liposuction is the amount of time it takes for the fat loss to become visible. The results of liposuction are apparent after the swelling has subsided whereas the results of CoolSculpting start becoming apparent about three weeks after treatment. It can take anywhere from three to four months for the effects to become fully visible.
How Does CoolSculpting Promote Weight Loss?
CoolSculpting promotes weight loss by freezing and destroying fat cells. Fat cells do not tolerate cold temperatures and die off when frozen. After the fat cells have died off, the body's waste removal process picks up the dead fat cells from the treated area and eliminates them from the body. This process takes time and is the reason why the full effects of fat loss can take up to four months to manifest.
What Can I Expect from a CoolSculpting Treatment?
Cryo slimming treatment is simple and easy. Our provider determines where to place a protective gel pad for the treatment, then places an applicator over the problem area. Once you're ready, we will begin treatment connecting the applicator to the machine. You may experience sensations such as tugging, pulling, intense cold, or mild pinching in the area that's being treated. However, the discomfort will fade as the treated area becomes numb. You can relax and read a book or use your phone during the session, which will last for about thirty minutes.
