And yet you are still plagued by love handles, a bit of arm jiggle and an advancing double chin. So, whats next?
Unleash the magic of Coolsculpting ® offered by the professionals at Glam RN. What, you may ask, is this amazing procedure?
Simply put, this is a nonsurgical body contouring procedure that utilizes a specialized device that is placed over the area you have chosen to contour, applies a strong suction, and then freezes fat cells that lie under the skin. This freezing effectively destroys the fat cells that are then slowly broken down and eliminated from the body by the liver. Once the fat cells have been destroyed, they are gradually broken down and removed from the body by the liver. This is a fairly new procedure that was approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2012. CoolSculpting® is registered trademarks of Zeltiq Aesthetics.
A number of independent clinical research studies found variations in results but in general twenty to twenty five percent of fat cells were eliminated through this procedure. The majority of people tested noticed effects within days of the procedure. Still the full effects were not noticeable for several months. Most people start to notice the effects a few days after the procedure, but it often takes 1 to 4 months for the full results to show. Clinical tests and reviews of people that have undergone the procedure indicate that is a safer, non-invasive type of fat reduction surgery than traditional procedures such as liposuction.
The procedure is a simple office visit that does not involve any surgery, manipulation or damage to tissue including muscle, or anesthesia, most patients do require recovery time and will immediately resume normal activities. On occasion patients will experience very minor side effects around the area of treatment. Even these fade within a few days of the procedure. There have been instances, however, of patients experiencing numbness or loss of sensation in the treated area for around up to a month.
The most common side effects that are immediately noticed include a firmness at the treatment site, a slight pinching sensation, tenderness, redness, and stinging, tingling or numbness. Rarely patients have complained of muscle cramping and mild pains. In short, the procedure causes fewer problems and side effects than eating a large Thanksgiving dinner.
This has proven to be a very effective treatment – if your expectations are reasonable. So it is important to know what to expect, what treatment is right for you, and how best to proceed. Interested? Then perhaps it is time to talk with the professionals at Glam RN about Coolsculpting®.
