This fat loss treatment is done using the process of Cryolipolysis. For people looking for an immediate and short term effective treatment, Coolsculpting is the best way to go forward.
One must make sure that they get it done from the right place.
Process of Coolsculpting in Delhi
This Non-invasive procedure takes about an hour, depending upon the area treatment is performed.
First a protective gel pad is layed on the client’s skin. Then a cool sculpting paddle is applied to the area. The skin and extra fat is then being sucked by the paddle, freezing the fat without damaging the skin. A numbness will be felt in the area due to the intense cold and pressure.
Once the process is complete experts remove the paddle. The frozen lump of fat that is left is massaged away. Later the area is vigorously massaged in order to dislodge the frozen fat. The result of the treatment will not appear immediately, as the frozen fat will gradually be flushed out of the body.
With coolsculpting you can expect to lose between 20-80% of the fat cells of the targeted area.
Well the main factor that affects how much fat you can reduce is the size of the treatment area.
