Fat freezing, which is also known as cryolipolysis, is a noninvasive method for freezing and removing fat cells located in double chins, love handles and other bulges of fat. Up to 25% of the fat in a specific area can be removed but this will often take more than a single treatment. If you are considering having this procedure done in San Gabriel, CA, we want to answer your most common questions.
Who is the Procedure For?
The person who is an ideal candidate for fat freezing procedures is someone who is looking for improvement in a certain area of the body. This isn’t an extreme procedure like liposuction which removes large amounts of at. When you see a technician about this procedure, they will consider your skin quality, age, and what results you are looking for.
What Results Can Be Expected?
Getting the results you want to see may take a few treatments, but this varies by person. A single treatment can create a change, but this may or may not be enough for an individual. However, the more times the treatment is done, the more likely you are to be pleased with the final results. A mild fat reduction like less bulging or a smaller waistline are common, and the fat reduction can reach up to 25%.
Is the Fat Removal Permanent?
This procedure is 100% permanent fat removal, but it is up to the individual to control their weight after the procedure is done. When gaining weight, that is going to go somewhere, and it may be the same problem area that was treated. Keeping a healthy diet and regularly exercising is important to see permanent changes you want in your body.
Is the Procedure Safe?
The risks of this procedure are very low because it is a noninvasive procedure. There may be contour irregularities, which are also possible with liposuction. There is little room for human error since the CoolSculpting machine does the procedures. In some cases, you may experience numbness in the area of minimal bruising.
