"I have to wear baggy shirts, so no one sees my love handles."
"Don't take the photo from that side you'll see my double chin."
"I hate my thighs."
These are some of the common complaints men and women have all over the world. The truth is, 79% of Americans report feeling unhappy with how their body looks at times. While many people try to stick to a healthy diet and exercise regularly, it's difficult to lose fat in specific problem areas.
For those dealing with stubborn fat areas like love handles, bra fat, and double chins, CoolSculpting can help. CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment aimed to reduce fat in targeted areas.
Keep reading to learn how CoolSculpting works and the benefits it provides to patients around the world.
How CoolSculpting Works
CoolSculpting, also known as cryolipolysis, is a non-surgical fat reduction process.
A certified specialist freezes specific areas of fat on the patient's body. Fat cells die once they become frozen. Once dead, the cells naturally eliminate themselves within 90 days.
Once the fat cells are eliminated, they're gone for good. The dead cells are excreted through your liver.
Patients can expect to experience a 20%-25% fat reduction in their treated areas. It takes about one hour to target an area with CoolSculpting. There is no downtime, so patients can get back on with their busy lives after their session.
Side effects of the CoolSculpting process may include stinging, aching, redness, swelling, bruising, and skin sensitivity in the treated areas. Some patients experience a slight tugging sensation while the fat cells are being frozen.
It's important to note that CoolSculpting is not a weight loss solution. It's a treatment designed to reduce fat cells in specific areas of the body. Maintaining a healthy diet and exercise are encouraged before and after a person has received CoolSculpting.
Why You Should Choose CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is a top choice for men and women who need assistance eliminating specific areas of fat on their bodies. Why? Let's explore seven of the top reasons patients turn to CoolSculpting.
1. CoolSculpting Is Safe
With over four million CoolSculpting procedures conducted throughout the world, there's a reason people trust this process.
Not only is CoolSculpting a non-invasive process, but it's also FDA approved. There have been thousands of clinical trials conducted to gather data on the safety and after-effects of CoolSculpting to ensure it's safe for everyone.
CoolSculpting should only be conducted by professionals who are authorized to do so. These specialists take extra precautions to ensure the patient does not experience side effects or is put in harm's way. Don't be afraid to ask your consultant about his or her qualifications before your session.
2. No One Needs to Know
CoolSculpting results don’t occur overnight, and that’s a good thing.
After freezing away the fat, the cells naturally die over 90 days. As they die off, the patient gradually slims down. That means your CoolSculpting sessions can be your best-kept secret.
CoolSculpting is a targeted fat-reduction process designed to treat specific areas of your body. Patients do not drop hundreds of pounds, but instead, contour stubborn areas to help them achieve the bodies they’ve been working towards. The results are amazing and appear natural.
CoolSculpting is often referred to as a lunch-time procedure. Within sixty minutes, patients are in and out, back on their normal routine.
3. You Can Pick Which Areas You Want to Target
It's important to love your body, but it's normal to have certain areas that make you feel self-conscious. Whether it's your butt, abdomen, thighs, or chin, CoolSculpting can target these stubborn areas and eliminate the fat for good.
As a patient, you have the option of treating any of the following areas with CoolSculpting:
- Back and bra fat
- Double chin
- Outer or inner thighs
- Love handles
- Upper arms
If there is a specific area of your body that you're struggling with, CoolSculpting can eliminate the fat cells forever.
4. CoolSculpting Won't Leave Behind Scars
CoolSculpting gets you the results you're looking for without the battle wounds. There is no surgery, anesthesia, or lingering scars for you to worry about.
Instead of going to a plastic surgeon and cutting away fat, CoolSculpting involves placing two frozen panels around a fat pocket. The panels freeze the fat cells in the area, so they naturally die off. It's a simple and surgery-free process.
5. CoolSculpting Offers Permanent Results
When fat cells are frozen, those cells die and never return. That means even months after treatment (or even years), you have the opportunity to keep the look you want. In order to do this, it is recommended that you maintain a healthy lifestyle. Just because those fat cells have been eliminated, doesn’t mean you can’t gain weight or that the amount of fat won’t increase. The existing fat cells can expand. You should eat a healthy diet and get regular exercise to achieve lasting results from your cool sculpting procedure.
6. You'll Become a Healthier Person
Maintaining a wholesome diet and keeping up with regular exercise is vital for a healthy lifestyle. Those who undergo CoolSculpting treatments are more likely to keep up with a healthy lifestyle following their procedures.
CoolSculpting permanently kills fat cells, but maintaining a balanced lifestyle is crucial to ensuring you get the results you want. While new fat cells cannot return, existing fat cells can expand if you gain weight after CoolSculpting. This makes you increase your overall size and become unhappy with your body again.
To continue reaping the CoolSculpting results, it's encouraged to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Eat nutritious and well-balanced foods. Get yourself up and moving regularly. Stick to a healthy sleep schedule.
For those who struggle with maintaining a healthy lifestyle and feel they need to lose weight, CoolSculpting can help them stay motivated and keep their bodies in tip-top shape.
7. CoolSculpting Builds Confidence
CoolSculpting rebuilds a person's confidence.
It's no secret that men and women all over the world struggle with their body image. Studies have discovered that 47% of American women are insecure about their overall body image. When you're self-conscious about your body image, your confidence and self-esteem suffer.
Eliminating your self-conscious fat pockets does wonders physically as well as mentally. Mentally, better body image lowers anxiety and depression. Studies have shown that following weight loss, people experienced improvements in memory, concentration, and problem-solving skills.
