Exercise and diet are excellent ways of achieving your ideal weight, but they may need to be more effective on stubborn fat pockets, which can be frustrating. The Sasaki Advanced Aesthetic Medical Center team offers Pasadena CoolSculpting procedures to address stubborn fat pockets, making your contours more defined and attractive.
An overview of CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical procedure that eliminates small portions of stubborn fat resistant to exercise and diet. The technique eliminates unwanted fat through a process known as cryolipolysis, which relies on the principle that fat cells have a higher sensitivity to cold than other body cells. The Sasaki Advanced Aesthetic Medical Center team applies low temperatures to your epidermis, causing the fat cells beneath the skin surface to die without interfering with the surrounding tissues. Over time, your body naturally eliminates the damaged fat cells through a natural cleansing process, and the areas of treatment become leaner and more contoured. It is paramount to understand that CoolSculpting is not an alternative to weight loss procedures; hence not a cure for obesity.
Determining your eligibility for CoolSculpting
If you have achieved your ideal weight and are in good health, you may be eligible for CoolSculpting. This procedure may be suitable if you want a nonsurgical fat reduction treatment. You also have to understand that the changes don’t occur instantly; instead, they occur gradually, improving with each passing day. During your appointment at Sasaki Advanced Aesthetic Medical Center, the team discusses your body goals and expectations. They also perform a thorough physical exam to ensure you are healthy enough for the procedure. CoolSculpting can address the stubborn fat on your upper back, chin, hips, thighs, and belly, giving you a desirable silhouette.
What to expect during a CoolSculpting procedure
Dr. Sasaki and his team have years of experience performing CoolSculpting procedures with great success rates. They choose an applicator that matches the size of the stubborn fat pocket. After placing the applicator, your provider gently draws the tissue into the treatment site for cooling. The treatment may last about 1-2 hours, depending on the portion and location of the treatment area. Dr. Sasaki may utilize two CoolSculpting machines to treat two sites simultaneously and reduce the treatment time. During the treatment, you can read a magazine, work on your laptop or relax as the team unlocks your hidden contours. Your provider may suggest using ZWave, an advanced fat-reduction technique that involves manual massage to promote the breakdown of treated fat cells.
What to expect after CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting experiences vary from one individual to the next, but after the procedure, you may experience tenderness, temporary bruising, or swelling at the treatment site. You may need to wait for approximately three months to enjoy the final results of your treatment. If the treatment area is large, you may need more treatment sessions to achieve the desired results. CoolSculpting allows you to attain the body figure of your dreams.
