When most people reach adulthood, it is more difficult for your body to rid itself of fat cells. Even with a healthy diet and an active lifestyle, it can be extremely difficult to get rid of pockets of excess fat, especially in areas such as your thighs and abdomen. Coolsculpting is a new, effective and safe way to get rid of excess fat, without surgery.
If you want to get rid of the fat in your thighs, it may be time to talk with your dermatologist about the benefits of Coolsculpting. The Coolsculpting procedure is an option for both women and men. The procedure is safe for people over the age of eighteen, and perfect for anyone who has fat deposits in their thighs that they cannot seem to shed, regardless of how much they exercise or how healthy they eat.
Coolsculpting is best suited for candidates who are within 10-20 pounds of their ideal weight. The procedure is non-invasive and can effectively reduce the excess fat in one’s thighs with one or more treatments. Most patients typically require one treatment for the full benefit of Coolsculpting to occur; however, it is much less expensive and safer than surgical procedures. The excessive fat cells gradually die off, and within two to three months you will see significant contouring of your thighs.
Since Coolsculpting is a non-invasive procedure to remove excess fat from your thighs, almost everyone is a good candidate. However, like any type of cosmetic procedure, it is important to discuss the procedure with your dermatologist. During your consultation, the dermatologist will discuss the steps of the procedure, any possible complications, and your expectations.
Minor side effects may occur, such as minor bruising, swelling or temporary discomfort and/or numbness. Some people notice the difference immediately following the procedure; however, in most situations, you will begin to gradually notice the changes as the fat cells die off and are eliminated from your body, which may begin about two weeks after the procedure.
