This year, CoolSculpting announced that they are the only non-invasive treatment that is now FDA-cleared for treatment of fat in the upper arms. This is great news for anyone struggling with stubborn fat in the upper arms that does not want to undergo surgery. Learn more about what makes this treatment a safe and effective option!
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting uses cooling technology to freeze away stubborn fat cells. After the fat cells freeze and die, the body naturally processes them and eliminates them for good. During treatment, an applicator directs controlled cooling to the targeted areas. The process is non-surgical and non-invasive meaning there is no pain or recovery time. CoolSculpting treatment is over within a few hours and patients can resume normal activity immediately after.
What does FDA-Cleared Mean?
The FDA, or US Food & Drug Administration, works to protect the public by ensuring the safety and effectiveness of food, drugs, products, and medical devices. In this case we are discussing the clearing of a medical device. To be cleared, the device must be reviewed and proven to be equivalent to another device that is already legal, ensuring that it is safe to use on the public.
What can CoolSculpting do for Upper Arms?
You might experience stubborn fat in your upper arms causing them to sag. This can be due to age, heredity, or a dramatic weight loss. Stubborn fat can be impossible to get rid of even through diet and exercise. Before CoolSculpting, you may have thought your only option was a surgical or invasive procedure such as an arm lift or liposuction. However, with CoolSculpting, you can achieve a slimmer, well-toned figure without ever going under the knife! CoolSculpting can produce noticeable improvement after just one treatment, or you might choose to have several treatments to optimize results.
