Sometimes, it can feel as if you have done everything you can in terms of dieting and exercise to achieve the body of your dreams. If you are feeling frustrated about your weight loss efforts and have a few areas of fat that just won’t get away, coolsculpting is for you.
What is coolsculpting?
Coolsculpting is a fat freezing procedure that is meant to treat pockets of stubborn fat. It is approved by the FDA and the results are permanent.
What does the process entail?
This noninvasive procedure requires no anesthesia or downtime, and you will be able to go back to your everyday life right after the treatment. Before the treatment, you will sit with a medical weight loss specialist and you will both determine what areas of your body to work on. Then that area of the body will be placed into a machine, which then will target fat cells under the skin with very cold temperatures. The treated cells are crystallized, frozen, then they die, and your body will naturally eliminate the fat. This process is not painful, and you will not need any pain relief medications.
What areas of the body work best?
This treatment is only beneficial to areas that tend to have excess fat, such as your thighs, hips, abdomen, legs, and arms. It is also important to remember that since only specific areas are targeted during this procedure, fat will only be removed from exactly where you want it. Your fat cells will not shift after treatment, so you don’t have to worry about being unhappy with your results.
The difference between losing fat and losing weight
It is important to remember that while coolsculpting can help you achieve the body you desire, it is not a weight loss program. It is important to know the difference between losing weight and losing fat — losing weight makes fat cells smaller, but losing weight does remove fat cells for good. But having a treatment like this will actually go ahead and remove fat cells from your body at a rate of 20% to 25%.
