Recontour parts of the body resistant to diet and exercise with CoolSculpting in Buckinghamshire

By Dr. TRACY MOUNTFORD, MBBS MBCAM

Losing weight is difficult and becomes more challenging as you get older. If you are finding stubborn fat in areas of your body that you cannot reduce or remove by a healthy diet and exercise alone, CoolSculpting in Buckinghamshire is an effective, non-surgical fat reduction treatment.

Along with facial rejuvenation treatments, our practice, The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, offers CoolSculpting in Buckinghamshire to reshape and recontour your body.

What does CoolSculpting in Buckinghamshire entail?

We freeze your fat by exposing fat cells to freezing temperatures in a controlled environment. We use a specifically shaped applicator that uses suction to pull in the area of fat being treated. Within the applicator there are cooling plates which are targeted to the area being treated.

Over time, the targeted frozen cells eventually shrivel and die. These dead cells are disposed naturally from the body via the lymphatic system.

Are there potential side effects?

Some patients may notice some numbness or redness in the area treated. However, these can be temporary, tolerable and short lived. Some people may experience numbness for weeks, but you will gain feeling back in the treated site. Other side effects include cramping, aching and itching. It is always good to have as much information as possible before having the procedure so that you can make a well-informed decision.

Can I replace my exercise and dieting with CoolSculpting in Buckinghamshire?

CoolSculpting cannot be used as a primary weight loss technique but should be accompanied by regular exercise and a balanced healthy eating regime.

Are the results permanent?

The treated fat cells cannot grow back, but you can regain the fat in the areas around those areas you have had treated because adjacent cells can still expand if you eat unhealthily and live a sedentary life.

How can I prepare for CoolSculpting?

On the day of your treatment, ensure you have breakfast or at least a small snack depending when you come in as well as wearing loose-fitting and comfortable clothing. Bring a book, work or a magazine to read during treatment or you can catch up on your favourite TV programmes.

A recap

It is a safe, minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure, that requires little to no downtime. CoolSculpting yields significant fat loss results and improvements but does not result in full-body transformations or weight loss.
