CoolSculpting: Preparation, Procedure, Before and After:-
CoolSculpting is an innovative and futuristic noninvasive fat reduction treatment that doesn’t include needles, anesthesia, or incisions. The procedure works on the principle of freezing subcutaneous fat to the point that the fat cells are decimated by the cooling procedure and consumed by the body. The layer of fat under the skin is the subcutaneous fat.
How does CoolSculpting work?
CoolSculpting comes from the study of cryolipolysis, which uses cold to break down the fatty tissue of the body. By freezing the energy of fat layers, the procedure causes the fatty cells to die slowly while leaving neighboring tissues, nerves, and muscles unaffected. These dead fat cells are filters out as waste by the body in a few months after the treatment.
Procedure of CoolSculpting:-
The Coolsculpting procedure will be performed by a doctor or trained personnel using a handheld device. The device’s nozzles look similar to that of a vacuum cleaner.
During the procedure, a gel pad and applicator will be applied to the targeted area by the doctor. This applicator transmits controlled cooling throughout the affected area. The device is continuously moved over the concerned area. The simultaneous application of cooling and suction will be done. Some clinics that have several coolsculpting machines can treat various target areas in one sitting.
During the overall coolsculpting procedure involves minimal pain. The sensation of pulling and pinching is very common during the procedure. The affected area is generally massaged by the doctor immediately after the treatment. This massage helps the body to absorb the frozen fat cells effectively thus, this massage could be a little bit uncomfortable for some.
Each sitting usually takes anywhere between two to three hours. During the procedure people frequently read, listen to music, or even work on laptops.

- Upper and lower abdomen
