We all are probably a little more self-conscious this time of year. We’ve gained a few holiday pounds due to tasty desserts and rich drinks. We may have gotten a little lazy with our workout regimes. But, you don’t need to stress about those last few pesky pounds this year. Keep up with your workout regime, but we won’t tell if you cheat a little bit. Keep reading to learn about our favorite cheat: CoolSculpting.
What is CoolSculpting?
Coolsculpting has taken the world by storm, becoming popular in countries far and wide. This treatment helps freeze away unwanted fat with no surgery, no anesthetics, and no downtime. Can you imagine a better treatment?
How does it work?
Your CoolSculpting treatment begins with a targeted cooling machine that focuses on one area. The machine cools the area where you want to lose fat to a precise temperature. Fat cells found in the targeted area are frozen and then die quickly after. Over time, your body naturally processes those dead fat cells and eliminates them with your body’s normal waste. Because the CoolSculpting applicators use a vacuum to draw your fatty tissue into the applicator cup, you may feel some pulling, tugging, and/or mild pinching as your treatment begins. Many patients report that those sensations go away after the area numbs.
Where does the fat go?
You choose the area, and we help you get rid of the fat there! Your fat cells are frozen until they die. Then, your body goes to work, removing these dead fat cells through the lymph system over the next few months. Your best results may be seen between one to three months after your treatment, so plan ahead and get a jump start on bikini season today.
Does the fat come back?
Did you know that when you lose weight conventionally, the fat cells shrink? With CoolSculpting, the fat cells disappear entirely. That means that those fat cells don’t return!
