Does the old saying “if you can pinch an inch…” go through your mind when looking in the mirror? It probably does. Both men and women both want to look trimmer and slimmer, however, no matter how much we exercise and eat right, that last inch simply won’t budge. Maybe it is your upper arms or your stomach, even your thighs; everyone has a stubborn area of fat.
This is where CoolSculpting can help. CoolSculpting is a noninvasive treatment designed to reduce isolated areas of fat without surgery. In Santa Rosa, patients turn to Allegro MedSpa for their CoolSculpting needs. Plus, not only does the fat-freezing treatment reduce targeted fat by 20-25%, there are even more ways it is better than surgery. Take a quick look at the top 6 benefits of CoolSculpting:
CoolSculpting beats the high-price of liposuction by a mile. Not only is the actual treatment less, but you do not pay extra for anesthesia and a board-carried anesthesiologist, operating room fees, pain medications, and time spent away from work to recover.
Any surgical procedure holds similar risks for infection, unexpected scarring, and bleeding, as well as the potential for troubles related to anesthesia. CoolSculpting does not break the skin, so there are almost no serious complications. The risks can include mild post-op pain, tymporary numbness, and asymmetrical results.
Easier on Your Schedule
Each CoolSculpting treatment takes only 35 minutes. Without any recovery time, patients can get straight back to work. Offices like Allegra MedSpa have multiple CoolSculpting machines for DualSculpting, allowing you to improve more than one area during the same session. Liposuction will require pre-op time and a lengthy recovery period.
One of the most worrisome aspects of liposuction is scarring. No matter how small or well-concealed, any incision will leave a scar on the skin. CoolSculpting’s surgery-free fat reduction means absolutely no scarring and no permanent marks on the skin. No one will ever know you had the procedure performed.
Versatile Treatment Areas
CoolSculpting is FDA-approved and offers just as much versatility as liposuction. There is a unique applicator designed for each area of the body, such as the stomach, un-pinchable outer thighs, the flanks or ‘Love Handles’, the ‘banana roll’ under the buttocks, and submental fat or a ‘double chin’.
Since CoolSculpting does not use any incisions or sutures, it needs no anesthesia, not even a local anesthetic. As the treatment begins, patients will feel a chill but soon the area will become numb. For this reason, there is no recovery period or downtime. The treatment area may feel tender, tingly, or itchy as it warms. On the other hand, liposuction will require general anesthesia during the procedure and pain medications in the early days of recovery.
