You don’t have to receive an invasive procedure to reduce your unwanted fat and achieve a more contoured body. At Revive MD Center in Glen Allen, Virginia, we can reduce your stubborn fat deposits in a non-invasive manner with CoolSculpting Richmond. This gentle treatment usually has minimal to no downtime, and you won’t receive any incisions or injections during your appointment.
Are CoolSculpting Results Permanent?
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved treatment that can reduce fat deposits in many different locations on your body. This innovative fat reduction method can provide lasting, significant results.
Removing Your Fat Cells
During your treatment session, we will use sophisticated cooling technology to destroy fat cells in your target area. Over time, your body will eliminate these dead cells. Once these cells are removed from your body, they will be gone for good. As a result, this treatment can improve the appearance of your targeted area in a noticeable, lasting way.
Maintaining Your New Look
Although this treatment provides lasting results, it will not prevent you from gaining weight in the future. You may feel happier and more confident if you adopt an active lifestyle after your treatment is complete. In fact, seeing your contoured body may encourage you to eat a balanced diet and exercise regularly. In addition to preserving your new look, these habits will help you stay strong and healthy.
Why Am I Struggling to Reduce My Unwanted Fat?
If you have excess fat that hasn’t responded to diet and exercise changes, don’t worry. Although unwanted fat deposits are frustrating, they are a very common problem. There are a number of reasons why you may be struggling to lose fat on your own:
As you age, your metabolism will slow, and your muscle mass will decrease. As a result, engaging in a vigorous exercise routine will become more difficult. Further, added responsibilities at work and home may prevent you from exercising regularly. These changes can prevent you from reducing your unwanted fat and achieving a more sculpted look.
Your genes influence how fat is distributed across your body. For instance, if your family members tend to gain fat on their stomachs, you will also gain unwanted fat in this area. These accumulated fat deposits are very resistant to lifestyle changes. When you exercise and eat a balanced diet, you cannot control where you lose weight. As a result, you might struggle to lose fat in your desired location on your body.
Your Fat Cells
Losing weight does not reduce your overall number of fat cells. Instead, your total number of fat cells is largely determined by the time you reach adulthood. When you gain weight, these cells will increase in size. When you lose weight, your fat cells will shrink, but they will not disappear. Your fat cells’ consistency can prevent you from reducing your unwanted fat deposits and contouring your body.
A Better Way
Fortunately, you don’t have to rely on diet and exercise to reduce your stubborn fat deposits. CoolSculpting is an excellent way to remove excess fat and give yourself a new look. Unlike lifestyle changes, this technique will target fat in specific locations on your body. Further, this body contouring method will permanently remove some of the fat cells in your treated area.
What Are the Unique Benefits of This Treatment?
Since this treatment uses revolutionary cooling technology, it has a number of benefits that distinguish it from other body contouring methods.
A Non-Invasive Option
This treatment does not require you to visit the hospital or receive anesthesia. Further, this technique’s state-of-the-art cooling process allows us to treat your fat cells without making incisions into your body. As a result, you don’t need to deal with stitches, wounds, or scarring. Instead, this is a completely non-invasive method.
An Effective Treatment
Many fat reduction treatments promise to improve your body but fail to deliver noticeable results. This treatment is different. Clinical trials have shown that this treatment is able to reduce fat in targeted locations of the body. Although your individual results will vary, a single treatment could reduce 20% to 25% of the fat cells in your treatment area.
A Quick Recovery Period
Many invasive fat reduction procedures have extremely long recovery periods. You will have to spend weeks away from your job, exercise routine, and other activities while you are recovering from your procedure. This lengthy period of inactivity can cut into your vacation time and take you away from the hobbies and routines that you most enjoy. In contrast, this body contouring treatment has minimal to no recovery time, allowing you to change your body without interrupting your busy life.
Certain treatments and procedures will cause you to lose fat in a fast, dramatic fashion. Your friends, coworkers, and family members may guess that you’ve had a cosmetic procedure if you quickly lose a large amount of fat. This treatment, on the other hand, causes you to lose fat gradually over a period of several months. This process will look similar to the results of a new diet or exercise routine, and you won’t have to tell anyone that you’ve had a cosmetic treatment.
How Does This Treatment Work?
This sophisticated body contouring method uses an innovative cooling process to reduce your unwanted fat. During your appointment, we will lower the temperature of your treatment area. This process will cause fat cells in your target area to freeze and die. This process is called cryolipolysis.
Over time, your body will remove your dead fat cells. Your body uses natural processes to accomplish this goal, and you can go about your life normally during this time. As your body flushes these unwanted cells, your treatment area will become slimmer and more contoured.
What Areas of My Body Can This Treatment Improve?
This treatment can be used to reduce fat in a variety of locations on your body. For instance, we can use this technique to treat excess fat on your buttocks, waist, and abdomen. We also have an innovative CoolSmooth Applicator that can reduce fat on your outer thighs.
How Will I Begin the Treatment Process?
You’ll begin your treatment by having a personalized consultation with us. During this meeting, we will discuss your overall health, including any medical issues that you have. We will analyze your body and talk about the specific areas that you would like to improve. We will use this information to design a treatment plan that is customized to fit your goals, body, and budget.
What Will My Appointment Be Like?
Receiving this treatment is an easy, gentle process that usually takes about an hour. You will not receive anesthesia, incisions, or injections during your appointment, so there is no need to be nervous about this process.
We will begin your treatment by putting an applicator cup and gel pad on your target area. Next, we will use vacuum suction to place your excess fat between our cooling panels. We will use these panels to lower the temperature of your fat cells. This process is usually comfortable, and you can listen to music, read, nap, or simply relax as we cool your unwanted fat.
How Long Will My Recovery Period Be?
This non-invasive treatment has minimal to no recovery time. Instead of scheduling weeks off to recover, you can quickly return to your job, hobbies, exercise routine, and other activities. In fact, you might go back to your job or childcare responsibilities immediately.
When Will I See Improvements in My Body?
Your treatment area will become slimmer and more contoured as your body processes your dead fat cells. This process takes some time, and you will not see improvements immediately. That said, you may see positives changes after about three weeks, and you are likely to see significant results after two to four months.
Is This Treatment Safe?
This treatment has an excellent safety profile. The FDA has cleared this treatment for the purposes of addressing fat on many different locations on the body. Further, clinical trials have shown that this technique is an effective and safe way to reduce unwanted fat.
How Many Treatment Sessions Will I Need?
Your treatment plan will depend on a variety of factors. The condition of your body and your number of target areas will influence the duration of your treatment plan. If you are trying to remove a small amount of fat from one location on your body, you might achieve your desired outcome after a single treatment session. In contrast, you will need to receive multiple treatments if you are targeting larger amounts of fat on several different locations on your body.
Can I Perform This Treatment on My Own?
Some people claim that you can reduce your fat at home using ice or other cooling methods. Attempting to reduce your fat on your own is very risky and unwise.
CoolSculpting is much more effective than at-home body contouring methods. Further, this treatment has many features that are designed to protect you. For instance, healthcare providers will analyze your body and review your medical history to ensure that you are a good candidate for this treatment. They will also use gel pads to protect your treatment area.
At-home treatments lack these important protective features. As a result, you should never try to save money by performing this treatment on yourself. You won’t reduce the fat in your target area effectively, and you could damage your skin.
Am I a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
If you are an adult who has unwanted fat in specific locations on your body, you are likely to be an excellent candidate for this treatment. This treatment can be a great way to reduce fat deposits that are out of proportion with the rest of your body.
Although this technique can contour and sculpt your body, it is not a weight-loss method. If you are trying to lose very large amounts of fat, or if you would like to lose fat all over your body, you might not be a suitable candidate for this treatment.
Certain health conditions may also prevent you from receiving this treatment. You cannot use this body contouring method if you have cryoglobulinemia, paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria, or cold agglutinin disease. Further, you should tell us about all of your medical conditions, including any allergies, hernias, or sensitivities that you have. We will use this information to determine whether you can receive this treatment.
