Nowadays, non-invasive procedures trump invasive procedures when it comes to fat reduction. They are the safe and effective alternative with less risks and less expenses on medications and maintenance in the long run.
Liposuction is still being offered in many clinics but with the advancement and innovation in technology and the health industry, there are more options to choose from to lose weight and change appearances without undergoing the knife. One of those options is Zeltiq CoolSculpting. Plastic surgery or liposuction still has their merits but Zeltiq CoolSculpting has many advantages that make it a better choice than the former.
1. Zeltiq CoolSculpting is tolerable.
Invasive procedures like liposuction need you to be unconscious throughout the procedure and once you wake up, you'll feel pain and discomfort. With Zeltiq CoolSculpting, no need for any anaesthetic, needles, and lengthy recovery time. The first five to ten minutes of the procedure might cause some discomfort and even pain depending on your tolerance but immediately subsides after treatment. The discomfort is caused by the skin tissue being stretched and pulled into the CoolScultping probe. Although discomfort is still inevitable, the level of it is still far less than a liposuction or a tummy tuck.
2. Zeltiq CoolSculpting allows you to do tasks during and immediately after treatment.
With plastic surgery, downtime and bed rest are required for a couple of days and depending on the results, even weeks. Because you are wide awake during the procedure, you can use your phone and laptop (without interfering with the machine), check emails and catch up with work (or better yet, play games). The procedure only takes about an hour to finish and once the numbness subsides after 10-20 minutes, you can resume with the rest of your day. Bodily movements and functions are not affected in any way.
3. Zeltiq CoolSculpting is effective.
Say goodbye to those love handles since this procedure directly targets the problem area (usually the abdomen) by reducing or removing unwanted fat slowly but surely after two to three sessions. Not only is it effective but it is also very safe. The non-invasive suction applicator used in the procedure draws the adipose tissue by acting like a vacuum and breaks down the fat cells by extracting heat. This cools the tissue which eventually kills the fat cells but doesn't harm the surrounding tissue or break the skin. The fat is not extracted in any way like how a doctor would with liposuction but is eliminated instead by the body naturally. Over the course of two to four months, the fat layer immensely decreases. Sometimes, results can be seen within three to four weeks.
