Targeting Body Fat with CoolSculpting

So, here’s the deal with body fat – as adults, we have a constant number of fat cells. When we gain weight, the cells swell, and when we lose weight, the cells shrink. Sometimes the cells shrink because of diet and exercise, but there are some instances, like genetics, receptors in the cells, or hormones, where your body won’t allow you to get rid of fat pockets through traditional methods like exercise and diet. CoolSculpting will remove those extra fat cells that are beneath the skin. The cool temperatures that are used during this process weaken the fat cells without harming the rest of the soft tissue. The cold will destroy the fat cells and eliminate the fat for good. Your body’s immune system will attack the weakened fat cells, and they will naturally leave your body, melting away those stubborn areas of fat. CoolSculpting isn’t about comprehensive weight loss, it is a way to help you get rid of unwanted fat for good.

CoolSculpting: The Unique Treatment

Cool Sculpting treatment is an FDA approved body contouring procedure that is based on the type of technology called Cryolipolysis. This process triggers the cells with extremely cold temperatures that they can’t survive in. This process works to make you lose fat by destroying 25% of fat cells. The dead cells are excreted out of the body through the liver.

Areas That Can Be Treated With CoolSculpting

CoolScuplting is not for everyone. People that suffer from obesity cannot have this treatment. The process is only to remove small amounts of extra fat that exercise and diet have failed to treat. If you have several areas that you want to treat, the session can be customized to do more than one area at the same time. Here are some of the most common fat-storage areas that are treated with CoolSculpting:

  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Under the chin
  • Upper arms
  • Under the buttocks
  • Waist and love handles
  • Chest
  • Knees

CoolSculpting treatments can also reduce the appearance of cellulite on the legs, buttocks, and arms. It can even be used to help get rid of a double chin.

How Does the CoolSculpting Treatment Work?

Your CoolSculpting session will be tailored to target the problem areas that you want to zap away fat from. Here’s what you can expect from the session:

  1. A mixture of hand tools will be chosen. These will be customized to treat each area depending on the size of the areas. Different areas can be treated at once to save you money and saving you multiple appointments for treatments.
  2. Before the session begins, a protective gel pad is applied to the treatment area.
  3. Now it is time for the CoolSculpting to begin. At first, you will feel a gentle suction. Then, you’ll feel a coldness for about 5-10 minutes. After the coldness turns the skin numb, you will be able to relax while the rest of the treatment is done. Some people read a book, look on their phone, or even take a nap.
  4. After the treatment is complete, the applicator will be removed, and the area will be massaged to help break up the frozen fat cells so they can pass through your body easier.

Sessions typically take 1-3 hours, depending on the areas that are being treated.

Benefits of CoolSculpting

The best part about CoolSculpting is that there isn’t any downtime required. With CoolSculpting, you can head right back to your regular daily activities right after your appointment is over. Most people go back to work, run errands, and even work out following their treatment. So, you’re able to freeze off fat without needles, anesthesia, or downtime. The process is comfortable and convenient.

Does CoolSculpting Really Work?

CoolSculpting permanently destroys fat cells. So, as long as you continue to live a healthy lifestyle, then you will continue to see these permanent results. You will start to notice your CoolSculpting results about three weeks after your session. You will see the maximum results within six weeks to two months after your body has been given time to flush out all the dead cells from your system.

If you want to lose even more weight or treat a different part of your body, you can schedule another consultation two to three months after your first session.
