The future of fat loss is body contouring. Non-invasive body contouring treatments will never replace regular exercise and a healthy diet. However, it can help you achieve your ideal aesthetic without going under the knife. Rest assured, if your self-confidence is lacking due to excess fat, there is a solution. At Aesthetic Surgery and Dermatology of Cherry Creek in Denver, CO, we proudly offer CoolSculpting Elite to help you freeze away stubborn fat for good.

What Is CoolSculpting Elite? 

CoolSculpting Elite is a unique body sculpting treatment in that it is the only FDA-approved treatment to freeze unwanted fat away for good. Thousands of people have used this innovative treatment method to achieve their ideal aesthetic. If you can’t achieve the body you want through diet and exercise, this treatment can help.

It was invented by a pair of Harvard scientists who discovered that fat cells can be frozen to death and excreted from the body without damaging the surrounding skin and muscle tissues. This freezing process is often referred to as cryolipolysis. It entails cooling adipose tissue until it reaches 54°F. It is so safe and effective because skin and muscle tissues are water-based and don’t freeze until 32°F. In other words, there is no risk that they are affected.

How Does This Treatment Work? 

The cryolipolysis process utilizes a highly specialized freezing tool with a suctioning attachment and applicator pad that cools adipose tissue to 54°F, their freezing point. Once the fat cells reach this temperature, they are destroyed. Upon destruction, these fat cells undergo necrobiosis. In other words, they experience cell death.

Rather than viewing these dead cells as fat cells, the body views them as debris to be eliminated as excess waste. Your body alerts its lymphatic system that these cells need to be removed. The lymphatic system responds to this alert by sweeping them up, processing them, and flushing them out. Over time, approximately 30% of the total fat cells in the treatment area can be eliminated. This occurs after just one session.

Is This Treatment Safe? 

Yes, CoolSculpting Elite is completely safe. The FDA would not have approved it if it was not safe. However, FDA approval does not only attest to its safety. It also attests to its efficacy. Rest assured, if you follow all preparation and post-treatment care instructions, you will have a safe, effective, pain-free treatment experience.

What Are the Benefits of This Treatment? 

There are many benefits associated with CoolSculpting Elite, which is why men and women love using it to achieve their dream bodies. Numerous celebrities swear by its efficacy, but it is accessible to anyone. Due to its efficiency, it is incredibly convenient. Most people complete their treatment sessions in no more than an hour. Also, this treatment is completely non-invasive and painless.

Finally, you will enjoy ideal results that will look completely natural. Everyone will notice your contours slowly improving, but they will never know you received professional help to achieve your dream body.

What Should I Expect During My Treatment Session?

During your treatment session, you will remain completely comfortable. Your session will start with your CoolSculpting tech putting the cooling applicator pad onto the area targeted for treatment. You will feel the area cooling, but after 10 minutes, the area will be numb. At no point will your skin be so cold it hurts. Most people watch TV, take a nap, read, or work remotely during their appointment.

How Long Will My Treatment Session Take? 

As noted above, most sessions are completed within an hour. How long your session will take depends on such factors as the size of the targeted treatment areas, how many areas you’re targeting in a single session, how much excess subcutaneous fat there is, and how close it is to the surface of the skin.

Is There Any Downtime Following This Treatment? 

There is no downtime required after this treatment because it is completely non-invasive. As soon as your session is complete, you are free to resume your usual routine. You are free to drive yourself back to work after your appointment, and you don’t have to worry about preparing for recovery. CoolSculpting truly is a rare exception to the rule that things that sound too good to be true are too good to be true.

How Quickly Can I See the Results?

It will take a while to see the results of your CoolSculpting treatment session. Individual results vary, but most people start to see the results of their treatment after a couple of weeks. Also, most people see their final results approximately two to three months after their session. However, depending on the efficiency of your lymphatic system, you may be able to see your final results after only six weeks.

How Can I See My Final Results Faster?

You can support your lymphatic system in a number of ways. For instance, you can exercise regularly and drink plenty of water.

How Many Sessions Will Be Required for Ideal Results? 

We can advise you on how many sessions you should need to achieve your ideal results once we have evaluated your current aesthetic and aesthetic goals. Some people need only one treatment session to achieve satisfactory results. These people are typically already at their goal weight. Other people need a few sessions to remove enough fat to feel self-confident.

Also, your schedule will affect how many sessions you need. Some people only have time to treat one region of the body per session. Rest assured, we will tailor a treatment plan for you that allows you to achieve your aesthetic goals and fits into your schedule.

How Long Do the Results of This Treatment Last? 

One of the greatest parts of this treatment is the results last forever. Nevertheless, you should understand that your future contours are up to you. Your body can’t grow new fat cells. However, the other 70% of fat cells in a treatment area that remain after treatment can still expand to make room for more energy storage. You need to maintain a healthy lifestyle if you want to enjoy your ideal contours for the rest of your life.

If you already stay hydrated, exercise regularly, and eat nutritious, reasonably portioned meals most of the time, you have nothing to worry about. Just keep up your healthy lifestyle.

The Benefits of Slow and Steady Results

What’s great about slow and steady results is nobody has to know you received professional help to achieve your ideal aesthetic. As far as your coworkers will know, you simply ate less, moved more, and shed fat slowly and steadily through discipline.

Do I Qualify for This Treatment?

You will almost definitely qualify for this treatment if you are already at your goal weight. If you are not already at your goal weight, you should be no further than 30 pounds from your desired weight. It is essential to understand that body sculpting treatments were not designed to help people suffering from obesity lose weight. Rather, it was designed to help people who are already at or near a healthy weight remove small pockets of stubborn fat.

What This Treatment Can’t Do

This treatment can’t remove visceral fat. However, it can help you lose inches of subcutaneous fat and help you feel more comfortable in your skin.

Confirming Candidacy

There are other qualifications for this treatment besides weight. For instance, you must be in fairly good health to qualify for this treatment. For example, you will not qualify for this treatment if you suffer from a medical condition that makes you particularly sensitive to cold temperatures.

To ensure you are healthy enough to receive this treatment, discuss your medical history with you. Then, we will assess your trouble regions and tailor a treatment plan for your unique needs.

Freeze Away Your Excess Fat Permanently

There is no need to live with contours that make you feel self-conscious. Stubborn fat no longer has to hold you back from your ideal aesthetic. With CoolSculpting Elite, you don’t have to receive an invasive procedure, and you don’t have to starve yourself or spend more hours in the gym than you want to.
