Many women, even those that are physically fit and at a healthy weight, discover they have developed unwelcome deposits of fat in certain areas of their body as they get older. These stubborn fat deposits do not respond to diet and exercise. It is fairly common for women to develop deposits in the upper back area and underarm areas, deposits that lead to undesirable bulges appearing while wearing a bra. These deposits can also affect bra fit and make bras uncomfortable to wear. CoolSculpting is a non-invasive method that can be used to trim and tighten localized fat deposits in the back and bra areas.
How It Works
A special handheld device uses suction to gently lift the affected part of body, including the skin and underlying fat layer. It then rapidly cools the tissue, which causes the fat cells to crystallize and die without affecting any of the other tissues, such as the skin, nerves, and blood cells. Over time, the body clears the cellular debris and released fat from the area, leading to localized fat loss, tightening, and smoothing of the area. Most patients report the procedure is comfortable and the treated areas rapidly go numb during the treatment. Because the procedure does not affect the skin there is no recovery time, although some individuals report feeling some minor soreness and experiencing skin redness in the treated area for a few hours, possibly due to the suction used to pull the tissues upwards during the treatment. If desired, several different body areas can be treated during the same treatment session; CoolSculpting has been FDA-approved for treating localized fat deposits on the back, in the bra area, under the chin, on the thigh, on the abdomen, in the buttocks, and on the upper arm.
How Long Until I See Results?
The treatment itself only takes about an hour, but it takes a few weeks before results become noticeable, with the biggest change observed a few months after the procedure. Most patients report a significant reduction in the size of treated fat deposits in their back and bra areas. In some cases, a second treatment may be recommended to achieve the desired results. The results are permanent in that the destroyed fat cells cannot recur, but the remaining fat cells can increase in size at the site of treatment, and other parts of the body can expand if fat is deposited, which is why it is essential to combine CoolSculpting with exercise and a healthy diet in order to maintain the good results.
