What Is CoolSculpting? A Modern Body Modification Technique

What Is CoolSculpting? Zeltiq is a division of Allergan, a medical company based in Pleasanton, California which licenses and markets medical devices used primarily for cryoliphyseis processes. The company was established in 2021 and raised over $75 million in the capital before publicly going public in 2021. It was subsequently acquired by Allergan in August of that year.

One of the many benefits of CoolSculpting is the fact that it’s a non-invasive technique, meaning there are no incisions and no general anesthesia as with other cryoliphyseis techniques. Patients are usually given a local anesthetic and left to bed for a couple of hours. When the temperature in the lab reaches around 118 degrees Fahrenheit, a non-invasive cooling device is placed on the patient, often attached to a chair. This device generates a lower temperature of around forty-seven degrees Fahrenheit through the use of a liquid cooling medium. It then gently warms the area being treated so that the surrounding cells have a chance to begin dividing.

In the case of CoolSculpting, a special liquid suspension is used which includes a non-sterile anti-fungal agent, low concentrations of which are all good for human clinical trials. The patient then lies down on the cool sculpted area and is covered with a thick pad or dressing to help keep him/her cool through the procedure. A probe is inserted into the fatty layers of the body so that its subcutaneous fat cells are melted or frozen by a directed burst of heat energy. These subcutaneous fat cells are then removed and either discarded at regular intervals or if required, replaced with new cells taken from the lab.

Although CoolSculpting is not technically liposuction, the processes used in both procedures are similar. When cool filled, the process in which heat energy is directed at a particular area or at a set of fat cells, causes them to contract, eventually shrinking. On the other hand, liposuction involves creating a flat area on which fat cells are removed by suction. One major difference between the two procedures is that, in the case of CoolSculpting, there is no need to remove the fat with a scalpel as the fat cells contract themselves; thus, there is no need to remove any tissue or fat from around the surgical site. The patient may experience some minor swelling, but this should dissipate within a few hours and will subside within a few weeks.

While CoolSculpting is non-surgical, in order to have the procedure it is necessary to consult a physician. For people with large, stubborn, or extremely stubborn fat deposits, there may not be a viable option for CoolSculpting. In such cases, liposuction may be a better alternative. Also, people with extremely low body mass index (also known as metabolisms) may benefit from CoolSculpting as well; however, a doctor’s opinion is always necessary in such cases.

The main advantage of CoolSculpting is that, unlike surgery, there are no large incisions to make; thus, recovery time is relatively fast. It can take from a few days to a few weeks to return to normal activities; however, after CoolSculpting, patients can resume normal daily activities quickly. In addition, because the fat cells shrink naturally with heat, there are no scars or other post-operative care required. The fact that the fat cells do not shrink also means that the procedure can be used on either larger or smaller areas, including the hips, thighs, stomach, buttocks, and face. Additionally, CoolSculpting is less painful than most other surgical procedures: as a result, it is ideal for men and women seeking to gain weight or decrease body fat.

The process through which CoolSculpting removes fat cells is called cryolipolysis. This is in fact a very simple procedure: it involves placing a probe into the subcutaneous fat to find out its location by giving a jolt to the area; then, a small amount of liquid (usually tumescent) is injected into the subcutaneous fat. The liquid freezes the fat cell; due to the fact that it is in a liquid medium, the cell cannot absorb nutrients; consequently, it will die. After a few hours, the subcutaneous fat will slough off to reveal the new skin – it is this process that makes CoolSculpting effective in removing stubborn fat from the body. However, the process is only effective if the fat has not become too embedded in the skin.

In order to ensure that you do not waste your time with the wrong coolsculpting treatment plan, it is important to consult with an expert who can explain the exact steps of the procedure. The expert should also be able to recommend a treatment plan that is best suited for your condition. For instance, a doctor may suggest that you undergo either cryolipolysis or mini liposuction first, and then if these methods prove ineffective, you can consider a more advanced treatment plan. In most cases, it is better to follow an advanced treatment plan before going for a more drastic one – but of course, the decision should be left to you.
