Say Goodbye to Stubborn Fat
It’s called stubborn fat for a reason: no matter how healthily you eat and how much you exercise, it’s virtually impossible to lose those annoying muffin tops, love handles, and belly pooch. Until recently, you had two options: live with them or have surgery. Now there is a tried and true non-surgical alternative: Coolsculpting.
CoolSculpting targets fat cells alone, eliminating them in an easy, non-intrusive fashion that exercise and diet often cannot do. Without surgery or downtime.
A Natural Solution
Procedures that use laser, sonic waves, and even surgery to remove fat can destroy other tissue in the process by burning, shattering or extracting non-fat cells. This requires downtime for your body to heal. Though surgery might be for you, now it is not the only option. I learned long ago that not everyone will lie down on the operating table to have surgery, they just will not. Fortunately, CoolSculpting doesn’t burn, shatter or extract any cells, and does not require anesthesia.
Developed by Harvard scientists, Coolsculpting’s unique, FDA-cleared, patented procedure uses a targeted cooling process that kills the fat cells underneath the skin, literally freezing them to the point of elimination. Only fat cells are frozen. Your healthy skin cells remain healthy. No knives. No suction hoses. No needles. No scars. Once crystallized, the fat cells die and are naturally eliminated from your body. In a few months, say hello to a new you.
Minimal Downtime, Long Lasting Results
Unlike a lot of other procedures, CoolSculpting takes very little time and is pretty simple to fit into your daily life. After your CoolSculpting treatment, you can typically get right back to your busy day. Each treatment lasts 35 to 60 minutes – the same time you might spend at the gym. So you can easily fit your appointment into a lunch break.
After a single treatment, you’ll typically see a noticeable reduction of fat. It takes about four months to fully realize the effects, mainly because it takes that long for your body to naturally dispose of the fat cells. And yes, you can lose even more with additional appointments if you and your doctor deem it necessary. If one treatment does not get you to your target, another treatment often will. But remember, Coolsculpting is not for weight loss, and it is not likely to offer significant changes in contours in heavier patients. Coolsculpting does not tighten skin, but neither does liposuction. Though there does sometimes appear to be skin tightening, it is a reduction in the underlying fat volume and the skin’s elasticity that give those outcomes. If you have very loose and/or extra skin, consider a skin tightening procedure (tummy tuck, for example).
