Natural aging and excessive weight loss can cause skin to droop and become looser than you would like. You can also develop unwanted pockets of fat as you unevenly lose weight. It’s not uncommon when this happens to start searching for some different alternatives to help tighten up the skin. While there are a lot of options out there, don’t let yourself get overwhelmed. Weigh the pros and cons of each procedure to make the decision that is right for you. Here we look at some of the advantages of CoolSculpting™ and why it might just be what you have been looking for.
When you are ready to smooth out the skin around certain parts of your body, CoolSculpting can be a great alternative to surgery. While some people are uncomfortable with idea of getting surgery, others may have medical conditions that discourage against it. CoolSculpting is a non-invasive method of body sculpting that does not require the use of needles or anesthesia. In fact, most people will not even require pain medication.
It’s specific to trouble spots
You may not want to target larger areas of fat that some procedures will require. If you have specific trouble spots that you would like to see reduced and smoothed out, then CoolSculpting will be able to offer you just that. If the only area that bothers you is your inner thighs, then you’ll save time because you won’t unnecessarily have to do more work than is required.
It doesn’t scar
With some procedures, you will see scarring. Because CoolSculpting uses freezing techniques to rid the body of fat, you won’t have any scars. While your skin might become red and swollen directly after the procedure, most patients report that it is almost painless, if not completely free of pain. This FDA approved procedure will be very effective without leaving marks.
It does not require downtime
CoolSculpting does not require you to take time off from work and you won’t be put on a specialized diet or exercise program. You will be able to go back to work and run your normal errands once the procedure is complete. This is a great alternative for people who are unable to take time off of work since it can be scheduled during your lunch break or at any convenient time for you.
While it will take a few months for you to see the complete results, you will be pleased with the permanent smoothing of the skin. You’ll want to continue working towards your weight loss goals to keep off extra weight. However, as long as you do this, you will be able to enjoy your results for years down the road.
