How CoolSculpting Can Eliminate Fat And Reshape Your Body
CoolSculpting is a revolutionary technique used to lose stubborn fat and it’s becoming increasingly popular: More than 6 million procedures have been performed worldwide. In this blog, we explain how it works and help you evaluate if you’re a good candidate.
What is Stubborn Fat?
A calorie is a unit of energy that your body needs to keep you alive and perform daily activities. This energy comes from three macronutrients found in the food we eat: protein, fats, and carbohydrates. While the latter is our primary fuel source, fats work like a reserve that the body stores in the form of adipose tissue. If you have more in reserve than what is necessary, the result is weight gain.
Although you can burn fats through dieting and exercises, some parts of your body—typically, your belly and upper arms—might not respond to your efforts. We call this “stubborn fat”, but there’s still light at the end of the tunnel.
How CoolSculpting Works
Unlike liposuction and other traditional procedures, CoolSculpting is a non-invasive technique that doesn’t require anesthesia and allows you to resume your normal activities at the end of each session. The treatment uses safe, accurate, and efficient equipment to freeze and destroy fat cells underneath your skin. Within a few weeks, your body will naturally eliminate these dead cells while you get slimmer in the process.
Several scientific studies have proven that CoolSculpting can target specific areas of the body without affecting the surrounding ones. Sensors will constantly monitor the temperature of your skin and shut down the equipment if it gets too cold.
Is CoolSculpting For You?
CoolSculpting was designed to get rid of stubborn fat in specific parts of the body. Good candidates for this treatment are within 30 lbs of their ideal weight, so it’s not recommended for people who are obese. The technique can be used to reshape your abdomen, flank, inner thighs, outer thighs, chin, and upper arms.
Your physician will examine your body and discuss how many treatment sessions you need. Usually, sessions last from 35 to 60 minutes. In the first few minutes, you’ll feel a sensation of intense cold and numbness that disappears quickly. Most patients use this time to read a book or work on their laptop. After three weeks, you’ll start to notice the amazing results.
