In most cases, back fat develops as a result of general weight gain caused by consuming too many calories and not burning them off through exercise. Any calories that your body doesn’t require are stored as fat around your body, and even a small amount of fat on your back can lead to back rolls.
If you’re overweight, then changing your lifestyle and improving your fitness are the key steps you need to take to reduce the amount of fat your body is carrying. However, many people, especially as they get older, find it impossible to get rid of certain areas of fat even when they follow a healthy weight-loss plan, and the back is one of the areas afflicted with this stubborn fat.
If you’ve lost weight but aren’t able to shift fat in areas such as your back, you could have surgery or liposuction to remove the excess fat.
However, these procedures are invasive and require healing time, whereas CoolSculpting is entirely noninvasive and requires little if any recovery time. As a consequence, CoolSculpting is more convenient and comfortable, while achieving similar results to invasive procedures.
Unlike surgery or liposuction, CoolSculpting doesn’t remove the fat from your body. Instead, the technology uses intense cold to freeze fat cells in your back and kill them.
Once they’re dead, your body gets to work breaking down the remains of the fat cells and flushing them from your system over the months following treatment.
Most clients require two treatment sessions of two cycles each, spaced at two-week intervals. Results are evident between two and six months after you complete your treatment.
The treatment process is straightforward; you simply lay on your front, and your technician places the applicator cup and a gel pad onto your back rolls. The cup draws in the fatty tissue, during which you may feel a pulling sensation and intense coldness, which soon wears off as the surface tissues of your back go numb.
You may continue to feel the pulling sensation during the procedure as your technician treats the fat cells, and you may also experience other feelings, such as:
None of these sensations should last long or be too uncomfortable, and following treatment, they should wear off. You may notice some sensitivity and tenderness on your back after the session, but any side effects are usually mild.
