CoolSculpting for Your Bikini Body

Believe it or not, spring is in the air. And it won’t be long before spring turns to summer and you’re out on the beach tanning next to crashing waves. This summer promises to be a warm one, and you’ll want to be in the best kind of shape for sitting next to those waves that you can be. The problem, of course, is that it’s far too late to schedule something like a tummy tuck or liposuction and expect to be ready for the beach by the time the first heat wave hits. But this doesn’t mean you’re totally out of luck (and it doesn’t mean you should crash diet—as that type of dieting is, no doubt, pretty bad for you).

In fact, there’s a relatively new procedure that’s perfect for that spring into summer transition, and it can be accomplished at a pretty quick pace. The procedure is called CoolSculpting. You may have heard about it. It’s been featured by Los Angeles CoolSculpting clients checking into their local LA cosmetic surgeon. And it’s been featured in all of those up and coming beauty and fashion magazines. In other words, this is a procedure that’s definitely on the rise. And the reasoning is pretty simple: it’s nearly pain free and it’s incredibly effective. This combination means that CoolSculpting isn’t yet another bag of empty promises. It delivers.

CoolSculpting Eliminates Fat

CoolSculpting is designed to eliminate fat. It does this by exposing fat cells to extreme cold. That mechanism is actually quite ingenious, because it takes advantage of the fact that your skin is well insulated against the cold—but your fat is not. So there is no damage done to your skin or external tissue. In fact, the only type of cell that is “damaged” is the fat cell, as intended. By eliminating fat cells and harming nothing else, CoolSculpting is a greaty way to ensure that you shed a couple of pounds before you’re expected to hop into that bathing suit and head to the beach.

And if you’re worried about the pain of this procedure—because when we talk about “eliminating” fat, sometimes that conjures up some intimidating images—you can rest easy. It turns out CoolSculpting doesn’t hurt. It’s another ingenious element to this procedure. The cold that eliminates the fat cells also functionally numbs the skin—so most patients feel only a minimal amount of discomfort. This discomfort usually comes in the form of a slight tugging sensation (and, of course, a strong sensation of cold at first—before the numbing kicks in).

Subtle Results – But No Downtime

Now, CoolSculpting generally produces subtle results. And it can take a few weeks for those results to reach an optimum level. In other words, most of the results are not immediate. Instead, the results will increase over time (as the fat is absorbed back into the body). But, the results—even at their best—will usually be subtle. They’ll be noticeable, and you’ll notice tighter skin and less fat around the targeted area.

But the results of CoolSculpting simply can’t compete with the results of something like liposuction or a tummy tuck. This isn’t a dig at CoolSculpting—rather, a recognition of the design of this procedure. Liposuction is designed to remove fat, and it does so by surgically inserting a tube and eliminating fat (often, a process of heat and suction is combined to produce the best effect possible). But as with any surgical procedure, liposuction requires some significant downtime afterwards. Indeed, recovery may last for months. And if you’re just getting started now, that means you could miss the prime of summer.

CoolSculpting in Time for Summer

It’s also worth noting that surgery is not a good alternative for everyone. In terms of risk, there’s always some inherent chance of something bad happening, low though it may be. Of course, that chance is even lower with something like CoolSculpting, which by its nature is non-invasive. As such, CoolSculpting provides a great way to get results without the pain and recovery of traditional liposuction surgery. In other words, you can get moderate results without the need for a recovery. To me, that sounds like a pretty good deal—though, of course, that’s always up to the individual.

But there’s no denying that CoolSculpting is particularly appealing at this time of year. The summer is suddenly upon us, you’ll be out on the beach before you know it and you understandably want to be ready. CoolSculpting helps you have increased confidence in your body and your overall look. So if you’re interested in targeting a few pesky area, contact your local cosmetic surgeon to get started on your CoolSculpting today.
