What Sets CoolSculpting Apart from Other Procedures?
CoolSculpting has become increasingly popular as a fat reduction procedure, with a growing number of cosmetic skin care experts and dermatologists recommending it to the patients. At the same time, a large number of patients are looking for alternatives to invasive techniques to reduce unwanted fats. The unique treatment approach adopted by CoolSculpting sets it apart not just from other invasive treatments, but also some non-invasive alternatives available in the market.
Comparison with Invasive Treatments
Surgical fat reduction procedures such as liposuction, breast reduction, and abdominoplasty follow the traditional invasive approach to remove unwanted fat cells. The results with these surgical techniques can be quite dramatic in some cases, and the results start showing almost immediately after the surgery. But the challenge with these traditional systems is that they usually involve a relatively longer and painful procedure, extended downtime, and various potential risks and complications that are integral to any surgery. Some patients may not be fit to undergo a surgery, or may not be willing to choose an invasive treatment for cosmetic reasons, and in some cases, affordability of a surgery may become an issue.
CoolSculpting has introduced a revolutionary cooling treatment approach that achieves the same goals of fat reduction, but without any of the challenges that the surgical alternatives are typically associated with. Unlike liposuction, CoolSculpting does not involve painful injections or incisions to suck out fats from the dermis, and unlike tummy tuck surgery, it does not involve major incisions and aggressive removal of fat cells. It achieves the goal of fat reduction without making a single incision or inserting a single injection into the body. CoolSculpting freezes off the unwanted fats without causing any damage to the surrounding healthy tissue, and achieves a leaner and smoother figure in a more natural manner.
Comparision with other Non-invasive Approaches
Non-invasive and minimally invasive fat reduction procedures have gained popularity among a large segment of people who are keen to avoid surgery and yet wish to achieve a more shapely body. Non-invasive treatments that have been on the market for several years include laser, ultrasound, and radio frequency based technologies. These treatments cause minimum collateral damage to the skin and are less invasive in comparison to surgery. However, since these are all heat-based approaches to melt away the unwanted fat, they may cause pain, burns, and minor side effects.
CoolSculpting uses a radically divergent approach from all these non-invasive and minimally invasive techniques. It uses a cooling technology to freeze away the targeted fat cells to their death. The technology does not harm the health surrounding skin and tissue, involves no downtime, and is usually free of any risks and complications. Therefore, there is a rapidly growing awareness among patients about CoolSculpting and it has become the treatment of choice for a large number of patients already. Patients should know that CoolSculpting is not a weight loss treatment, but a unique fat reduction procedure that is ideal for people with stable and normal weight, who suffer from stubborn fat deposits in specific areas of the body.
