If you’re someone who’s tried several diets and exercise but still can’t quite get rid of stubborn belly fat which has accumulated around your wait line it might be time to consider CoolSculpting Stomach in San Jose.

What is CoolSculpting Stomach in San Jose?

CoolSculpting is a non-surgical treatment which reduces fat and is proven to give the appearance of a sleeker and more toned abdomen. It is therefore one of the most common treatments for “muffintop” or “love handles” fat around the waist. The treatment doesn’t require surgery so there is no scarring and no recovery time.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

The revolutionary technology behind CoolSculpting was developed by scientists at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. The treatment targets fat cells with cold, a process called Cryolipolysis, but doesn’t damage skin or surrounding tissue.

The treatment delivers precise and controlled freezing to the fat cells underneath the skin, which crystalize and then die over time. Your body processes these dying fats and removes them from the body naturally. This leaves behind a more sculptured stomach and waist.

Does CoolSculpting Work for Everyone?

The CoolSculpting process will reduce fat cells for everyone, but the effects are most noticeable on people who are within 20 pounds of their target weight and have an active lifestyle, but can’t lose those extra pounds. It is not a treatment recommended for obesity as the results will go unnoticed and likely the fats will reoccur again within a short period of time. So CoolSculpting isn’t a replacement for weight loss plans or for surgical methods such as liposuction.

What Happens During a CoolSculpting Treatment and Does it Hurt?

The treatment is applied locally, so the areas are first marked up and photos taken to show the appearance of the fatty areas pre-treatment. An applicator is then applied to the marked area, the applicator then draws the tissue up and then delivers a specified amount of cooling to the area for one hour. Several applications may be applied to the area during one treatment session. The treatment is relatively painless and most patient are able to sit comfortably reading or listening to music while the treatment is in process. The treatment may last between one hour and four hours in total to target all treatment areas.
