You may have already heard about all of the great benefits of a CoolSculpting procedure, but are still on the fence whether or not it’s the right choice for you. CoolSculpting is an innovative fat removal treatment that involves freezing stubborn fat cells through a process known as cryolipolysis, allowing the cells to dissolve, turn to liquid, and leave the body. The result is a slimmer, more defined figure without having to undergo surgery. The Peer Group located in Florham Park, New Jersey, uses this technique on men and women with outstanding results.

If you are considering a CoolSculpting procedure in the greater New Jersey area, here are some tips that may be helpful as you decide what fat removal treatment is right for you.

Top 12 facts about CoolSculpting

It all started with a popsicle

Years ago, two scientists observed some children eating popsicles and noted that their cheeks began to dimple due to the cold temperature of the popsicles. The scientists realized that popsicles were freezing and eliminating small pockets of fat cells on the inside of the cheeks. Soon thereafter, the method of eliminating fat by targeting and freezing it, also known as cryolipolysis, was born.

It’s a great alternative to liposuction

CoolSculpting offers many of the same benefits as liposuction, but without the need for surgery. This non-surgical fat removal procedure uses cooling to help eliminate stubborn fat without damaging the surrounding skin or tissue. It does not require general anesthesia, incisions, or other aspects that traditional liposuction uses.

It can reduce fat by up to 25%

This procedure is extremely effective at removing and eliminating stubborn fat. In fact, the results are so good CoolSculpting can lead to a fat reduction of up to 20%. Of all non-surgical liposuction methods, CoolSculpting remains one of the most popular choices among New Jersey area patients seeking an alternative to liposuction.

There’s no downtime

Many patients choose to resume their normal day’s activities after completing a CoolSculpting procedure. Since the procedure is nonsurgical there’s no need to have to wait for any anesthesia to wear off and there’s no need to take time off of work to allow the body to heal. Instead, you’re good to go immediately following the procedure with limited recovery protocols.

It’s discreetly non-invasive

Since CoolSculpting is non-invasive, the procedure is incredibly discreet when compared to liposuction as there are no needles or surgery to deal with. This also means that there are no incisions or scarring to worry about. Nobody will ever know you had fat cells frozen and removed unless you choose to tell them.

It’s suitable for both men and women

Ideal candidates for CoolSculpting are men and women who are within their ideal weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle. CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss treatment and is only intended to remove stubborn fat in areas that show resistance to normal weight loss patterns. CoolSculpting is not a good option for people who are overweight or obese. While CoolSculpting can treat many areas of stubborn fat, it may not be the ideal solution for certain parts of the body. Your surgeon will be able to confirm whether or not CoolSculpting can give you the results you’re wanting or if there is a better option available to you.

It focuses on fat cells only

Unlike liposuction, there is little risk of damage to surrounding tissue as CoolSculpting specifically targets isolated fat cells.

Results can be seen in as early as 1-2 months

Once the fat cells have been destroyed, it can take some time for them to leave the body. On average, it takes anywhere from 1-2 months for the body to naturally process the fat and remove it from the body. Once the frozen fat cells are eliminated you’ll be able to fully enjoy the results from the procedure.

Safe and effective

CoolSculpting is the only non-surgical fat reduction, fat-freezing procedure that has been approved by the FDA. It is safe and effective for fat removal with proven results that have been shown in numerous research studies.

The side effects are minimal

The most commonly reported side effects from our Greater New Jersey patients include mild tugging, pinching, and intense cold during the actual procedure. Following the procedure, the biggest complaints have been temporary redness, swelling, or bruising. These side effects tend to resolve within a few days or weeks. These side effects are minimal when compared to many fat eliminating surgical procedures on the market.

Can treat multiple areas of the body

CoolSculpting can treat multiple areas of the body where stubborn fat is present. Some of the most commonly treated areas include the stomach, thighs, knees, upper arms, and chin. Oftentimes, patients have more than one problem area treated during the same procedure.

The procedure is a breeze

Most patients feel a little anxious prior to any type of medical procedure, but you won’t have to worry about this with CoolSculpting. Aside from feeling cold initially, the area then becomes numb and you won’t feel much of anything. In fact, many patients read a book, watch a movie, play on their phones, or even take a nap during the procedure.
