For those of us who do not have naturally slender, lean-looking legs, the process of getting them can take months of effort. The daily choice to take the stairs, perform plenty of squats and lunges, and stay on point with a healthy diet is indeed a difficult one, and maintaining the results can pose an even greater challenge.
Since this troublesome area is a concern for so many people, Premiere Center of Cosmetic Surgery now offers CoolSculpting®, a treatment that delivers the slender, leaner thighs you want in a matter of minutes – without any needles, knives, or downtime!
How does CoolSculpting® work?
The CoolSculpting® device freezes fat cells in the targeted area, causing their eventual death. Over time, the body will naturally eliminate these dead fat cells. Unlike traditional weight loss methods that only shrink the fat cells, CoolSculpting® reduces the number of fat cells by permanently removing stubborn fat from the body. Once the fat cells are eliminated, they are gone for good!
CoolSculpting® is FDA approved for use on the thighs, flanks, and abdomen. During the treatment, a hand-held device is positioned on the chosen area, and controlled cooling is administered for about 45 minutes. The patient is awake and free to listen to music or read until the treatment is finished. Usually, the patient will feel mild pressure and a very cold sensation; there is no pain or anesthetic needed.
Because fat cells crystallize at a faster rate than other cells, the surrounding nerves, skin, and other tissues are not harmed. There may be slight swelling after treatment, but this should not interfere with regular activities. Typically, patients are able to resume work and physical activity right away.
What results can I expect?
Results will continue to improve several months after treatment as the fat cells die and are slowly eliminated by the body’s natural processes. On average, patients experience a 20 percent fat reduction in the treated area.
