If you eat healthily and exercise regularly, stubborn fat bulges can be frustrating. Fortunately, there is a non-invasive treatment you can receive to minimize their appearance. CoolSculpting® Elite can help you get rid of your belly pooch, double chin, muffin top, love handles, saddle bags, dangling arms and other unwanted fat bulges. If you lead a busy lifestyle, you may be wondering whether there is any downtime after a CoolSculpting® Elite treatment. Read on to find out.
How CoolSculpting® Elite Works
Most CoolSculpting® Elite treatments take anywhere from 35 minutes to over an hour to complete. During a treatment, you can expect a vacuum applicator to suction your fat bulges and expose them to temperatures that are just above freezing. You’ll find the applicator to crystalize your fat cells and naturally kill them. Although you may experience tugging and a cold sensation, this will disappear quickly.
Believe it or not, CoolSculpting® Elite comes with virtually no downtime. You can receive it on your lunch break and resume work and your other daily activities immediately. It’s the perfect way to achieve the sculpted figure you’ve always wanted without disrupting your life.
Long term side effects with CoolSculpting are very rare. Paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (a thickening of the treated area) occurs in approximately 1 in 4,000 treatments and can often be improved with other methods. The newer, gentler applicators of Coolsculpting Advantage starting in 2016 made this even less common and the even more comfortable and effective handpieces of Cool Elite introduced in 2021 have no reported cases of PAH reported.
Benefits of CoolSculpting® Elite
CoolSculpting® Elite can reduce the number of fat cells you have by about 23% in the treated area with each session. It can leave you with a slimmer and more shapely physique and greater self-confidence. In addition, it does not involve any anesthesia, needles, or downtime so you don’t have to take time away from your job or other responsibilities. CoolSculpting® Elite may be just what you need to get rid of the unwanted fat bulges that seem to stick around despite your diet and exercise efforts.
Good Candidates for CCoolSculpting® Elite
If you have stubborn fat bulges that are resistant to diet and exercise, you may be a good candidate for CoolSculpting® Elite. This treatment can help you improve your body and feel more confident in your own skin. If your goal is to lose weight, CoolSculpting® Elite is not for you as it is designed to help patients reduce fat cells rather than shed unwanted pounds.
