While you can lose a significant volume of fat through diet and exercise, you cannot control where on your body that fat is burned. Depending on how your body stores fat, you can be trim and slim in some areas yet still have trouble spots that just won’t budge.
For men and women who are bothered by stubborn fat deposits, body contouring offers a safe and effective solution. There are several approaches available, but all share the same basic concept of damaging targeted fat cells.
CoolSculpting is a body contouring system that uses extremely cold temperatures to destroy fat cells. The patented system delivers predictable results without placing your health at risk. Many men and women prefer CoolSculpting to more invasive treatments like liposuction because there is no need for anesthesia or recovery time, and none of the risks that come with a surgical procedure.
This approach is a great way to refine the contouring of your abdomen, thighs, flanks, underneath your buttocks, back, and upper arms. It’s even approved for use in the area beneath your chin.
During your session, the CoolSculpting applicator is attached to your treatment area and held in place with a comfortable strap. The system uses suction to gently pull your skin into the applicator, where cold temperatures freeze the targeted fat cells. This process usually takes less than 30 minutes, and you can read, listen to music, or just relax while the system does its work.
Once frozen, a portion of those fat cells lose their structural integrity and no longer be able to store fat. That fat is released and processed through your lymphatic system.
Your practitioner removes the applicator and massages the area to help break apart the frozen fat cells. This helps your body metabolize the drained fat and cellular debris.
While CoolSculpting does permanently eliminate a portion of stored fat, it isn’t an effective weight loss solution. That’s because your remaining fat cells have the ability to expand and contract as needed to store larger or smaller volumes of fat.
CoolSculpting is best suited for men and women who’ve been able to achieve and maintain a healthy weight. If you gain a significant amount of weight after CoolSculpting, your results won't remain.
