Surprise! CoolSculpting Has Unexpected Added Benefits
It often happens that doctors and patients begin to notice added “bonus benefits” of certain treatments once those treatments become mainstream and are accepted into widespread use.
For fans of CoolSculpting, a natural and non-invasive body contouring treatment, the news have just gotten even better as CoolSculpting was recently approved by the FDA for use as a skin tightening treatment!
This means that when you come in for a CoolSculpting treatment to banish your love handles or double chin, you will also benefit from smoother, tighter, and firmer skin in those treatment areas.
Slimming and Tightening in a Single Treatment!
Many fat reduction treatments may fall short of achieving a truly toned and streamlined body contour, because in order for body contouring treatments to be truly effective, the skin must be able to tighten around the new, slimmer body contour, or it will result in a flaccid, sagging appearance. While many nonsurgical treatments cannot generally achieve this, patients using newer treatments such as CoolSculpting are now noticing effective contraction and tightening of skin tissue while also seeing a reduction in lumps and bulges thanks to natural, non-invasive CoolSculpting treatments.
Even in patients who have undergone a significant reduction in fatty tissue through CoolSculpting treatment, the procedure appears to preserve – and in some cases, actually improve – the skin’s firmness and elasticity in the treated area.
CoolSculpting is ideal for individuals who want to reduce excess fat in problem areas while also toning the skin in those areas, which may include the double chin, back, torso, waistline, hips, buttocks, thighs, arms, and legs. For individuals such as new moms who would still like to have more children later on, but who want to contour and tighten their bodies in the meantime, CoolSculpting makes an ideal, low-cost, non-surgical treatment solution that will not be affected by future pregnancy.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
The CoolSculpting technology works to break down fat by subjecting fat cells to freezing temperatures, which naturally breaks them down and destroys them, so that the body eliminates them through its normal elimination channels.
It was initially believed that, because these fat cells die off naturally and are eliminated from the body gradually, the CoolSculpting procedure does not produce the sudden skin laxity that a procedure such as liposuction might produce, in which fat cells are extracted suddenly. After a CoolSculpting treatment, fat loss happens gradually over the course of 3-4 months, allowing the skin enough time to naturally contract and tighten over a new, slimmer contour.
New observations, however, have led to the development of a hypothesis that the skin tightening benefits of CoolSculpting derive from a process known as “cryodermadstringo,” in which the treatment’s freezing of fat cells beneath the skin surface triggers an increase in natural collagen production, which naturally tightens skin and makes it appear smoother and firmer.
The combination of these two advantages makes CoolSculpting an ideal choice for anyone who wants to improve their appearance naturally!
