Daylight savings time means more sunlight, which means more time to get out and enjoy the beautiful outdoors. The closer we inch toward summer, the greater our desire will be to shed layers of clothing that have served us well these past several months. If you’re like a lot of us, your winter-body has stuck around for a little longer than you expected. This just won’t do, and it doesn’t have to. With a little time on your lunch hour, you can promote a natural elimination process that will whittle away frustrating bulges.
Non-Surgical Fat Reduction is the New Norm
Even when liposuction and abdominoplasty was pretty much the only way to refine body-contours dramatically, a lot of potential patients were hesitant. The development of non-surgical devices has brought new life into aesthetic medicine. Here at Fante Eye & Face Center, we love helping patients realize their dream of having a flatter stomach or a smoothly-sculpted chin by offering CoolSculpting. This fat-freezing technique has been widely studied and identified as one of the best non-surgical fat-reduction techniques available today.
In addition to the efficacy of CoolSculpting, one of the benefits that helps patients take back control of their shape is the fact that this non-surgical treatment can be done during the lunch hour. Each treatment may last as little as an hour (longer if you want multiple areas treated in the same visit). During a CoolSculpting session, an area of fat is suctioned between two cooling panels that are gradually adjusted to a freezing temperature. Initially, the cooling effect sends nerve endings into a little frenzy. Cool turns to an ache turns to numbness in about a ten-minute window. From that point on, most patients sit back and read or enjoy other entertainment while their fat is targeted for destruction.
There’s Still Time
Patients appreciate the non-invasive nature of CoolSculpting but may feel anxious to see their results. It’s a tradeoff: no incisions and no downtime, but gradual improvement in shape. Just because summer is on the horizon does not mean you’ve missed your chance to enjoy the benefits of a slimmer figure this season. Noticeable results often occur by about week-three after CoolSculpting treatment. That means that virtually any time is a good time to get started.
