Does CoolSculpting Hurt?
Over the years, millions of people have undergone invasive procedures to eliminate unwanted fat. Take liposuction as a prime example: For this, a surgeon makes several small incisions through which medical tools get inserted. The surgeon uses fluoroscopy for guidance and, after reaching the problem area, sucks the fat out.
After undergoing this procedure, patients must wear constricted garments to get optimal results. Not only is there risk involved from the anesthesia and tools, but following the surgery, from infection, bleeding, and more. While you may want a slimmer and more contoured body, there is a better and safer alternative.
CoolSculpting uses controlled cold to freeze and kill fat cells, which then flush from the body. As a non-invasive, FDA-approved procedure, you never have to worry about risks. Also, there is no downtime, meaning you can go back to work, school, or even the gym on the same day as your treatment. By visiting us at Ethos Spa, you will see the full results in only two months.
No Pain No Gain
With CoolSculpting, the saying, “No pain no gain” does not apply. During the procedure and after, you will not experience any pain – yet you’ll achieve your desired results. In response to multiple studies, most patients who have this treatment report zero pain; however, it is common to notice some sensations that cause slight discomfort, which usually disappear in about 15 minutes to 20 minutes.
During the Treatment
With the CoolSculpting treatment, a physician will place a cold and wet gel pad on the target area of the body before topping it with the applicator. Following that, they’ll apply vacuum pressure that draws the skin and fat into the device; this is gentle and non-painful. Once the physician activates the machine, controlled cold freezes fat cells just below the skin’s surface.
For roughly 10 minutes, most patients notice a mild pinching sensation. As the cold takes effect, the area becomes numb. With the treatment over, the “stick” of frozen fat gets massaged, which again, causes no pain.
After the Treatment
Most people have no pain whatsoever following treatment; however, for several minutes to hours, you may experience a slight tingling, cramping, or numbing sensation. Sometimes, those can last for a few weeks, but that is relatively rare.
Without incisions, needles, or chemicals, you can finally get rid of unwanted fat bulges. Along with superior results, you will have no pain during or after a treatment. Even if you have several procedures, you can expect the same pain-free experience each time.
CoolSculpting is perfect for both men and women. Even though the two genders have a different type of fat, and usually not in the same area of the body, the outcome is always excellent. Especially with summer just around the corner, this is the perfect time to get rid of unsightly fat, allowing you to look and feel your best.
