You can sculpt clay, you can sculpt pottery, and you can even sculpt your body. However, many individuals suffer with weight loss issues because no matter how hard they try, they just can’t seem to get rid of areas on their body that hold onto stubborn fat. If you are one of those individuals who is consistently hitting the gym and watching what you eat, but you still have areas on your body that you can’t seem to shed extra fat, then it’s time for you to consider the art of CoolSculpting.
What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is an FDA approved procedure that uses a special device to go in and freeze the fat cells in the targeted area in your body. After a month or two, these fat cells slough off and you will notice a more recognizably slimmer and more toned you.
Is It Painful?
Due to its non-invasive nature, CoolSculpting isn’t a painful procedure and doesn’t require any sort of recovery time. With sessions that typically last an hour, you can expect to feel maybe a bit uncomfortable during the procedure but it should not be painful at all.
How Does It Compare to Liposuction?
Over twenty years ago, it seemed like the only form of weightloss surgery that was available to patients was liposuction. And although liposuction is still a great surgery for the correct individuals, procedures like CoolSculpting are giving liposuction a run for its money. As mentioned above, one of the biggest perks of CoolSculpting is that it is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that doesn’t require any recovery time. However, the results do take a little longer to see. Whereas, liposuction is an invasive surgical procedure, that will leave you out of commission for a few weeks, but you will notice results a lot faster.
