How Does CoolSculpting for Thighs Work?
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, FDA-approved treatment that freezes fat beneath the skin using carefully controlled low temperatures. It can target stubborn fat in common problem areas, such as the thighs, and the belly, love handles, buttocks, and chin. Fat Freezing Uk
The fat cells are destroyed by freezing, and once the body flushes those dead cells away, you’re left with a smooth, contoured area. To truly understand how and why this process works, we must first understand how fat functions in the human body.
Fat Cells’ Distinctive Characteristics
Fat is stored in specialised fat cells in the human body. It’s natural to believe that when we gain weight, our bodies produce more fat cells and that when we lose weight, our bodies produce fewer fat cells. That is not correct. In fact, after adolescence, the number of fat cells in the human body remains relatively constant. It is tough to destroy or create new fat cells permanently. When we gain weight, our fat cells expand to store more fat. When we lose weight, the body metabolises the fat in those cells, causing the cells to shrink in size.
That is why body fat is so stubborn in areas where it usually accumulates, such as the thighs. Regardless of how much fat you burn, those cells remain. Fortunately, fat cells have another distinguishing feature that allows us to eliminate them: they freeze at a slightly higher temperature than the surrounding tissues. We can freeze fat cells and destroy them without harming the skin or muscle around them by carefully applying controlled temperatures.
How Does Treatment Work?
CoolSculpting for thighs is a non-invasive procedure that takes approximately 35 minutes per thigh. That amounts to 35 minutes for either the inner or outer thigh. If you want both inner and outer thighs on both legs treated, the total time will be closer to 140 minutes. In addition, this treatment requires no recovery time, so you can immediately leave our office and resume your regular daily routine. It’s so simple that you could get treatment during your lunch break and return to work without anyone knowing.
Our professionals use a specialised CoolSculpting device to administer the treatment. An applicator that resembles the nozzle of a vacuum cleaner is used to apply suction to the treatment area. In contrast, paddles on the apparatus apply temperatures cold enough to freeze body fat beneath the skin but not so cold as to damage the skin or other surrounding tissues.
People who have CoolSculpting treatments say it feels strange rather than painful. Furthermore, as the cold temperatures set in, the area becomes numb. While the treatment is being administered, some people will read a book, watch a show on their phone, or even work. It’s a simple, painless, and even relaxing way to lose stubborn fat.
How long will it be before I see my results?
A CoolSculpting treatment for the thighs does not produce immediate results. This is because the fat cells in the treatment area have been crystallised and killed, but when they thaw, they return. Before you can see the final results, your body must flush them out and metabolise them. Typically, people who have CoolSculpting for thighs begin to see results around the three-week mark. The results will improve as the body continues to eliminate dead fat cells.
Most people will see something resembling their desired results after two or three months, but the process of flushing out the dead fat cells can take up to six months. Depending on the person and the area targeted the final results of CoolSculpting range from a 20% to an 80% reduction in fat in the targeted area. In trials, 82% of those who received the treatment said they would recommend it to a friend.
How Many Treatments Will Be Necessary?
When it comes to CoolSculpting for thighs, some body areas may require more than one treatment, but this is usually not the case. Because the size is smaller, we can complete both thighs in one sitting, whether over two 35-minute sessions or all at once. It will take a little longer if you want treatments on both the inner and outer thighs. You have the option of coming in twice, once for each thigh or having the inner and outer thighs done on separate days. It’s entirely up to you!
Some people return for follow-up or maintenance treatment as well. For example, if your first treatment reduces thigh fat by 20%, a second treatment could shape them even more.
Are the Results Long-Term?
Fat cells, as previously stated, are extremely difficult to destroy or create naturally. This means that the results of your CoolSculpting treatment should be long-lasting. However, keep in mind that this treatment will only destroy up to 80% of the fat cells in the targeted area. Even in the best-case scenario, 20 per cent of the fat cells remain. If you gain weight after treatment, those remaining fat cells can expand, and the appearance of body fat in the treated area will return. Fortunately, with proper diet and exercise, this is unlikely.
What is the price?
The cost of CoolSculpting varies depending on the location and size of the treatment area. If you treat both thighs but only one side (inner or outer), the average cost is around $1500, or $750 per thigh. Most insurance companies will refuse to cover this treatment because it is an elective rather than a medical procedure. They would do the same for liposuction in most cases, which can range from $2000 to $10,000. This makes CoolSculpting a far more cost-effective option.
