What’s The Skinny On CoolSculpting?
Do you deal with that “hard to get rid of” fat around your abdomen, inner or outer thighs, side (“love handles”), or under your chin? Have you tried dieting and weight loss plans that work to some degree, but simply do not get rid of the fat in these areas? Fortunately, there’s a new FDA-approved treatment to help you lose fat in these stubborn areas — CoolSculpting!
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment that been approved to eliminate fat cells under your chin (no more double chin!), around your side (bye-bye “muffin top”), around your abdomen, and on your inner and outer thighs. The procedure has received rave reviews and was also awarded “The Best Fat Reducing Treatment” by New Beauty for two years in a row. It’s the only FDA approved fat reduction treatment, and more than 2 million CoolSculpting treatments have been conducted worldwide.
How does CoolSculpting Work?
By delivering cooling that’s controlled to precisely and gently target the fat cells directly under the skin, CoolSculpting reduces fat cells. The fat cells die after they freeze, or crystallize. The remaining cells in your body help to eliminate the dead cells naturally. The result? A thinner, more sculpted looking you!
The best part about CoolSculpting—other than the results—is the fact that there’s no downtime, no needles, no surgery, and no anesthesia. Many patients return to work or regular activities the same day.
During the procedure, the CoolSculpting device is placed on the selected area for treatment. It might feel a bit cool for the first five to ten minutes, but the coolness will subside as the area numbs. Other than that, the treatment is relatively comfortable, and many people read, check email, or simply rest during the procedure.
CoolSculpting is Fat Loss, Not Weight Loss
We are born with a certain number of fat cells. When you gain and lose weight, the size of those fat cells change. With CoolSculpting, you’re actually eliminating fat cells, so you look more sculpted and thinner, even though you might not lose any weight. Many see results within three weeks of treatment, with more dramatic results seen two months after the treatment date. Once the fat cells are gone, they are gone for good.
