Is Coolsculpting Possible At Home? And How Can It Harm You?
What is coolsculpting? Coolsculpting is a brand name for the process of reducing fat. The process is called in which the fat-producing cells are frozen and make them dead and after it removed from the body naturally. But unfortunately, some parts of the body have unwanted fat. These kinds of stubborn fats remained the same after even the exercise and a healthy diet. This procedure is very trendy because it is a non-surgical option to remove the fat. And it was also approved by FDA in 2010.
The most common and FDA-approved body parts where you can apply the coolsculpting are the Flanks, Abdomen, Thighs, excess fat of the chin, also known as double chin, bra fat, back fat, upper arms, underneath the buttocks, and area below the jawline.
How does this procedure work?
As it is a non-surgical procedure, no needle is required in this process. There are two types of fat tissues or cells present in our body. The fat tissues just near the surface of your skin are treatable and can be removed by coolsculpting.
At the same time, other kinds of fat tissues, which are deeper in the body, are not reachable by this procedure. The tool used in the coolsculpting looks like vacuum suction. It has two paddles to hold the part of the body on which you want to remove the extra fat.
Gel pad is used to reduce the effect on the skin. No tissues and other cells get harmed because fat cells freeze at a high temperature than the others. You can feel the pinching and pull by the paddles, but that is just a little pain, which you can bear easily.
Leave the paddles for 45-60 minutes. And it will freeze the fat, and your immune system will remove cells in some weeks or months. You may not get instant results; it takes a few months to get the proper results. But you will start feeling the changes in your body after a few 1-2 weeks of the sculpting.
How can coolsculpting at home harm you?
Coolsculpting has given good results, which is why it has become a very popular method to reduce fat at home. Many people try to do this procedure at home by using ice and other frozen items. Using icepacks makes you not sure you can reach the layer which contains fat-producing cells.
Applying ice for a more extended period to the skin can freeze your skin and cause some damage such as permanent tissue damage, frostbite, pain, and numbness.
In addition, you may not be able to get the exact temperature. Cryolipolysis is not about just freezing, and it also needs a suction tool. These tools keep the dead fat cells beneath the skin. While at home, you may be able to get some fat cells to die, but without suction, they can move in your body and can harm other organs and tissues.
Some people also use inexpensive tools which are available in the market or online that are not legally approved and safe to use. Overall, you must take a professional’s help and consultation in this process to get better results and to avoid any kind of harm to your body.
