Once only available through surgery, body sculpting removes saddlebags, love handles, and other areas of fat that can spoil your curves or soften the contours of the muscles you’ve worked so hard to develop. Innovations in technology have taken body sculpting out of the operating room and made it available as an outpatient, noninvasive, nonsurgical procedure that typically takes less than an hour per session.
The experts at Achieve Body Sculpting use the CoolSculpting® system to effectively reshape your problem areas. This advanced method relies on cryolipolysis to freeze and destroy fat cells, which your body then permanently removes as waste.
So, are you a good candidate for body sculpting? Your Achieve Body Sculpting provider can answer that question during your initial consultation and evaluation. However, there are a number of things to keep in mind when thinking about the process.
1. Body sculpting removes inches not pounds
If you’ve nearly reached your ideal weight or have always been “almost there,” body sculpting can address those stubborn pockets of fat that seem to cling to your waist, upper thighs, upper arms, and back. CoolSculpting can also reduce the double chin you always thought you’d have to live with.
It won’t, however, melt away the deeper fat that adds pounds to the scale. Losing that takes healthy nutrition and exercise. After that process, once you’re very near your goal weight, you can consider body sculpting your “completion” reward for a job well done.
2. Body sculpting works for men and women
Cosmetic procedures are often thought of as a woman’s domain. Many men, however, struggle with the same stubborn fat pockets as women. Body sculpting can provide a solution for them as well.
3. Noninvasive body sculpting takes a little patience
While the sessions are relatively quick, it takes your body time to complete the process started by the CoolSculpting system. Many clients notice improvement within a couple of months, but you can expect optimal results to occur by the fourth month.
That may seem like a long time to wait, but many individuals prefer this over the weeks of swelling, pain, and incision care required after invasive procedures such as liposuction or surgery. And it typically takes six months to a year for those invasive procedures to heal completely.
4. CoolSculpting is safe when provided by a qualified expert
CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared and has successfully completed rigorous testing to ensure its safety. It’s estimated that more than five million successful CoolSculpting procedures have been performed throughout the world.
The precisely targeted and controlled cooling action only affects the fat cells beneath the skin; it does not damage the surrounding tissue. Safety measures built into the system prevent your skin from becoming too cold during a session.
Your technician at Achieve Body Sculpting has undergone extensive training regarding the use of CoolSculpting technology and receives ongoing education to maintain consistently high standards of care.
5. You can expect only mild discomfort during a session
The cooling action may cause some stinging, tingling, and aching in the targeted area(s) as the session begins, as well as a pulling or tugging sensation. Most individuals, however, find these sensations quite tolerable and report no true pain. Your technician will discuss these issues with you in detail and provide helpful information about controlling the discomfort before scheduling your CoolSculpting session.
