Freezing Fat: how does NIMA do it?
You are either reading this because you want to know what freezing fat is or you are wondering what NIMA is, either way, welcome. Now-a-days there are so many ways to get rid of fat. Some ways give false hope with their “lose 20 pounds in one week” trends. We all know that those are great for results that either a) don’t happen or b) only last one week after. That’s why we’re talking about CoolSculpting in this article. CoolSculpting is an innovative way to get rid of fat cells, however this is not a treatment that will automatically help you lose weight. Freezing your fat with CoolSculpting takes time and patience. If you’re looking for a way to flush away those stubborn areas of fat without down time, keep reading to learn more about freezing your fat.
What is Freezing Fat aka CoolSculpting?
It is likely that you have heard of this new innovative way to get rid of that fat that just won’t go away! It is also just as likely that you do not understand what it means or how it works. So, let us break it down for you. CoolSculpting, aka Freezing Fat, is a non-intrusive treatment that freezes unwanted fat cells in particular areas. This treatment requires no downtime because there is no surgery or invasiveness at all. Yep, you heard that right, no down time! CoolSculpting is one of the only FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved fat removal procedures. That should tell you something about it! How many products do you use that don’t have the FDA stamp of approval? Freezing fat works by using a controlled intense cooling machine to destroy those difficult fat cells. The intense cool and pull of the CoolSculpting machine freezes those cells, killing them. Once those pesky fat cells are frozen, your body naturally gets rid of them throughout time. This seems too good to be true, right? Well, it’s not! However, it is important to keep in mind that this is not a get-rid-of-fat-quick procedure. It takes some patience, but you will be pleasantly surprised by your results.
What should I expect?
The very first thing you’ll do is make an appointment for a consultation. At the consultation we’ll get the basic information we’ll need. We will ask where you want your freezing fat to take place and then our experts will assess whether or not you are a right fit for this treatment. Yes, that’s right, generally most people will be able to go through CoolSculpting but others it may not be the best option. We will be able to tell you how many sessions you should go through to get your optimum results.
Now, after you have gone through your consultation, it’s time to freeze that fat! We’ll begin by placing our CoolSculpting device on the area that was chosen to get rid of that stubborn fat. Then all you need to do is sit back and try to relax while the freezing fat machine does its thing! In the beginning of your session, you may feel an intense cooling sensation and a bit of tugging and pulling. But, after a while you won’t be able to feel it at all as some of our clients say you get used to the sessions. During their treatments, our clients will often read, listen to music, watch a movie on their phone/laptop or even take a nap. We here at NIMA want your CoolSculpting experience to be as pleasant as possible. So, let us know if we can do anything to make you comfortable! Then after your session you will be able to easily go through the rest of your day! Remember, no downtime!
After your session(s) there may be some side-effects to look for! It is important to keep in mind that all of these side effects are temporary.
During: pinching, numbness, deep pulling, tugging, or discomfort.
After: temporary numbness, bruising, firmness, redness, swelling, tingling, stinging or pain.
Again, these are just temporary side effects of CoolSculpting so there is no need to be nervous. Remember, there are some people that should not go through the freezing fat process. Like, those who have cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria should not go through this process. It should also be noted that CoolSculpting is not a treatment for obesity. Those who are obese will not be able to go through the process. Here at NIMA we want to make sure that CoolSculpting is the right choice for you and your body. This is why we have our free consultations to make sure that CoolSculpting will be the right choice.
What happens after NIMA freezes my fat?
Like we stated before, this is not a lose-weight-fast type of treatment. CoolSculpting takes time, so you must be patient. Each person is different and the amount of fat we freeze is different as well. Therefore, when someone goes through our CoolSculpting treatment it will be different for each one. Some of our clients can see results as fast as three whole weeks. However, our CoolSculpting experts here at NIMA have noticed that most clients see results around two months. Your body could even continue to get rid of those dead fat cells up for up to six months. Your results will depend on your body type and the amount of fat cells that are being killed and then gotten rid of. If you get a larger area done, it will likely take longer to get rid of those fat cells. If the area is smaller, it could take a shorter amount of time. During your consultation we will explain further in detail when you could possibly expect to see your full results.
