WHAT IS COOLSCULPTING?


The holiday season is over but you might be left with a little more leftovers than you imagined. Thankfully, you can freeze the fat if you’ve noticed your problem areas have become more of a problem and more sightly than you might have imagined. If you’ve never heard of CoolSculpting, it is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure for women and men that does not require you to go under the knife.

CoolSculpting is a body contouring treatment that reduces fat cell volume by freezing your fat. If you’re wondering what all the talk is about or (asking for a friend) Pure Gold Medical, a medical spa providing aesthetics services to the Inland Empire, has compiled some information for you based on CoolSculpting FAQ’s.

Fat Reduction vs Weight Loss

Losing weight and losing fat are completely different and the goal should be fat loss not weight loss. The FDA-approved treatment, CoolSculpting, will freeze fat cells that you want to target using an applicator. The process is so quick from start to finish that it usually takes an hour and can be taken care of during your lunch. On the other hand, if you think you should “lose weight” instead of losing fat, signs of weight loss can point to health issues that you’ll want to consult with your doctor on as it can point to ( muscle, fluid, organ size, bone density, etc.) Losing fat is also different on the scale because muscle weighs more than fat does.

Side effects of CoolSculpting

Before starting a CoolSculpting treatment, you should consult with a trusted medical spa and licensed practitioner to assess if you’re a candidate for the CoolSculpting treatment but the side effects are short and minimal on most patients. Some common side effects include a tugging sensation during procedure, minimal pain and stinging during treatment. These side effects are natural as skin and tissue are momentarily exposed to cold temperatures. Other side effects include temporary redness, swelling, bruising and skin sensitivity.

Selecting a trusted medical spa for your cosmetic needs continues to be more important. When choosing what beauty spa to help you achieve your goals keep in mind that Pure Gold Medical’s very own Dr. Apodaca is a dedicated doctor focused on aesthetic surgery of the face, nose, breast, body serving Redlands and the greater Inland Empire area.
