Above points demonstrate some of the key points to take care of when opting for a body sculpting treatment without surgery. Not all cases are eligible for the body sculpting procedure. Hence, it is important to get your doctor’s advice before jumping head first into the treatment sessions. Traditional surgeries also have BMI based restrictions and some people have to tone down their body to a certain level before being eligible for fat reduction surgeries.
During the procedure you may experience sensations of pulling, tugging, mild pinching, intense cold, tingling, stinging, aching, and cramping at the treatment site. These sensations subside as the area becomes numb. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary redness, swelling, blanching, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, tenderness, cramping, aching, itching, or skin sensitivity. Sensation of fullness in the back of the throat after submental area treatment. These effects are temporary and generally resolve within days or weeks. Though rare, some additional side effects may occur. As with any medical procedure, ask your physician if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.
"I would like to say it is ready to replace liposuction, but it's not -- yet," he says. Still it does have certain benefits over liposuction namely that a person can have the treatment and go to lunch afterward, Fodor says. Unlike liposuction, the new technology does not involve pain, scars, anesthesia, or a long recovery time. Only some topical anesthesia is used, he says.

*In the U.S., the CoolSculpting®procedure is FDA-cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges in the submental area, thigh, abdomen and flank, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (also known as banana roll), and upper arm. It is also FDA-cleared to affect the appearance of lax tissue with submental area treatments. In China, the cryolipolysis system is used for fat layer reduction of the abdomen and flanks. In Taiwan, the CoolSculpting procedure is cleared for the breakdown of fat in the flank (love handle), abdomen, and thigh. Outside the U.S., China and Taiwan, the CoolSculpting procedure for non-invasive fat reduction is available worldwide.

One of the main hurdles in getting to the end point from the start is a patient’s determination to follow all the instructions given by their respective doctors. While the treatment sessions involve little to no effort on the patient’s part, the rest of the recovery procedure solely depends on the patient. The best thing to do is follow a regular diet and adhere to it no matter what. Same goes for the exercise regimen. Body sculpting treatments without surgery is a painless and non-invasive procedure that shows promise. If a patient is able to avail this technology to get into better shape without the hassle and pain of surgery, then it is recommended to try a non-invasive treatment.
Cold treatments (CoolSculpting).These employ temperatures cold enough to kill fat cells but not damage your skin. A device pulls portions of skin in by suction, then cools it to destroy the fat underneath for a set amount of time. You can use this procedure on many body parts including the chin, arms, abdomen, love handles and thighs. It’s safe for most patients. However, those who have a vascular condition that makes them extra sensitive to cold temperatures (Raynaud’s syndrome, for instance) should not use this treatment.
You will be given specific instructions on properly maintaining your new appearance. Following treatment you may experience some bruising for up to 10 days. Depending on the areas to be treated, the procedure only takes about an hour, and you can generally expect to be back to your normal routine in two to three days, making the AccuSculpt treatment the perfect Friday afternoon procedure.
As of 24/09/18 PureGym has taken over what was once Soho! In Lewisham where I have been a member of ...for years! And was very happy with the level of service and facilities. Launch day there was pure gym staff everywhere in the gym but no one to assist those of us that had problems getting in with the new pin method! Before it was just a finger print! Once in the gym... I always wipe down the machines before and after I use them only to find all the tissues and hygiene sprays had all been removed! When asked a member of staff I was told they don’t provide it and I need to bring my own!!! How unhygienic!
