Where Fat Goes During CoolSculpting

If you’ve looked into treatments that get rid of fat, you’ve probably come across the term CoolSculpting. At Fargo Center for Dermatology in North Dakota, we offer CoolSculpting treatments by the experienced hands of our CoolSculpting specialists. This treatment completely eliminates small amounts of fat by freezing it. But where does that fat go?

What Is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a treatment that can get rid of excess pockets of fat. It is a great alternative to other fat reduction procedures, such as liposuction. However, it is not ideal for those looking to remove large amounts of fat. CoolSculpting eliminates fat cells with an innovative fat freezing technology. Instead of having to deal with going under the knife, this procedure is non-invasive. The treatment is virtually painless, meaning you can go back to your daily routine immediately after your appointment.

The CoolSculpting Process

Before starting the procedure, our CoolSculpting specialists ensure that you are as comfortable as possible. Fargo Center for Dermatology is equipped with a body contouring room that is specially designed to fit the needs of each patient. The treatment will begin with placing the CoolSculpting applicator on the treatment area. No anesthesia is necessary, since this treatment is not painful. However, it’s possible you may feel some pinching and pulling during the process, as well as cold and tingling. These feelings shouldn’t last long due to the fact that the cooling effect will numb the area being treated. The cooling is set at just the right temperature to eliminate the unwanted fat but not harm the skin.

After your treatment is complete, there is no downtime needed. Some people may experience mild bruising, redness, swelling, or numbness. These symptoms should lessen fairly quickly. Fargo Derm’s CoolSculpting specialists recommend using ZO Oraser cellulite cream, which will smooth the skin around the treated area.

So, Where Does the Fat Go?

The fat freezing technology of CoolSculpting gets rid of fat without the need for an invasive procedure. It freezes unwanted areas of fat and those cells break down, eventually being removed from your body naturally. The immune cells in your body clean out the dead, broken down fat cells. Once these cells are eliminated they cannot come back.

Creating Lasting Results

Anyone who is close to their ideal body weight but can’t seem to shake those last stubborn pounds should be an ideal candidate for CoolSculpting. This treatment is designed to help those who need extra help achieving a more sculpted figure. While the effects of CoolSculpting are long lasting, this doesn’t mean that you can’t gain weight after the procedure. To maintain your results, it’s important to continue with a healthy diet and exercise frequently. Keep this up and you’ll continue to be confident and satisfied with your physique.
