Ladies will understand this the most when you take a picture showing one side of your body, and you notice that your arms are more significant than you would like them to be. Arm fat is prevalent; this can be brought on by weight gain and mainly due to aging. As we grow older, our metabolic rate decreases, and if you don’t have time for bench pressing, you are sure to see excess fat being stored in your arms. If you don’t have time for the gym to help improve the contours in your arms, you will most likely not be ready to dedicate the recovery time needed for an invasive procedure. Fortunately for you, there is a non-invasive alternative that requires only a couple of hours, if that, per session.
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical technique that uses the science of cryolipolysis to destroy fat with freezing temperatures. When the fat under the skin is frozen to a point, it is destroyed and absorbed by the body. For the upper arms, you don’t have to deal with anesthesia, needles, or incisions. This treatment is perfect for those who have already reached their ideal weight, and similar to liposuction, it is not a weight-loss procedure. The fat cells that are targeted with cryolipolysis (fat freezing) are removed through the body’s natural metabolic processes, and although that means that they won’t grow back, those that are left can still expand with weight gain.
For your arms, your doctor will perform the procedure with a handheld applicator, which may look akin to the nozzles of a vacuum cleaner. The applicator is moved over your skin while causing suction and cooling to the targeted area. Although you may experience some feelings of pulling and pinching, there is overall minimal pain. A massage may be administered immediately after your treatment to break up any frozen deep tissue. Each session will last roughly 35 minutes per arm, convenient as sometimes CoolSculpting may require multiple sessions.
The recovery time is even shorter than the procedure itself. With little to no recovery time, you can resume your daily activities immediately after. Sometimes you might experience some redness or soreness on your arms where you were treated, but that tends to fade within a few weeks. However, the results may take longer to be seen, typically after 2 to 3 months. Your body’s natural fat-flushing process may continue for up to 6 months after your initial treatment.
Without the need for preparation, you can schedule your appointment for CoolSculpting whenever you’re ready! Talk to your doctor if you are an ideal candidate for CoolSculpting, especially if you are at your perfect weight. See results with just 35 minutes on your lunch break!
