You likely have heard about the benefits you can receive from CoolSculpting®. This is an amazing body contouring treatment that uses intense cold to kill fat cells in the body. With this treatment, people in Lynchburg and elsewhere really can freeze away fat. However, you may wonder if this procedure is right for you or if you qualify as a candidate for it.
Some individuals have the mistaken idea that you can be any size in order to have CoolSculpting® done. If it freezes fat, even the most obese individual should be able to use it. However, CoolSculpting® is not designed for this purpose. It is a body contouring treatment, not a weight loss procedure. So if you are obese, you probably won’t qualify for this treatment. You are the best candidate for this treatment if you have specific pockets of fat that need to go.
The reason why CoolSculpting® is only designed in order to treat certain pockets of fat is because a physical applicator is used in order to freeze the fat. Certain areas are suctioned into a cup and then massaged. So it is best for areas like the belly, thighs, or hips.
This is a great treatment for individuals in Lynchburg who have health problems that would not allow them to qualify for liposuction. Since liposuction is a surgical procedure, you have to be in outstanding health. While you definitely need to be in good health for this treatment, you do not have to have the same health requirements with liposuction since this treatment is non-invasive. No incisions are made using CoolSculpting®. You do not have any of the downtime that is associated with liposuction. You are not going to have scars after treatment.
