Why CoolSculpting Beats Other Fat Reduction Treatments
Countless people hoping to slim down set up a rigorous exercise routine, eat all the spinach and quinoa they can stomach, and spend each day working toward a perfect figure. Problem is, while they might shed pounds, they have little control over which areas of their bodies respond. Dieting and exercise are remarkably uncontrollable when it comes to the physical results. Even spot-specific toning exercises won’t do any good if you’re still stuck with a layer of stubborn fat.
CoolSculpting puts fat reduction into your own hands. The versatile handpiece gently gathers fat in regions you’re hoping to slim, and freezes fat cells in the area. You can focus on the specific zones that have been bringing you so much trouble – and finally see real results. CoolSculpting is appropriate for those near their target weight with pockets of fat remaining. It’s perfect for those who are healthy but not seeing the physical shaping they’ve been working so hard for.
It’s Safe and Thoroughly Tested
How did fat freezing come about? Through the work of Harvard scientists. They noticed that children who regularly ate popsicles ended up losing fat from their cheeks as they aged. Through controlled studies, they found that exposing fat cells to freezing temperatures killed those cells – without harming surrounding skin. Once the fat cells are destroyed, the body eliminates them through natural processes. After enough time has passed, the treated area slims down and looks thinner.
Since fat freezing is cell-selective, you don’t need to worry about CoolSculpting harming your healthy skin. Only fat is at risk – and that’s fat you’re ready to part with.
Since CoolSculpting is FDA-approved, you can be confident that it’s been thoroughly tested through clinical trials. The Food and Drug Administration found that it is a safe fat reduction treatment and also an effective one. And since treatment doesn’t involve the use of any medications (or any incisions), risks are significantly lower than with many other options.
It’s Nonsurgical and Noninvasive
CoolSculpting is a completely external treatment. But gathering the target area and cooling it in the handpiece allows fat below the surface to be treated. There’s no need for surgery or any kind of invasive measures. During treatment, patients are completely awake and aware, without anesthesia. Treatment itself acts as an anesthetic, since the treated area is numbed as it cools. Most patients are entirely comfortable during the process, and they typically relax, read, watch TV, make phone calls, or even nap during their session.
CoolSculpting takes one hour per session, and patients get back to daily life immediately. While you may feel a little sore, you’ll be able to work normally and carry out your regular activities. There’s no need for downtime or the kind of healing involved with surgical procedures. Your body will begin processing the treated fat cells bit by bit, and results will gradually emerge as the weeks pass.
It Will Help You Commit to Long-Term Health
If you’ve been spending months (or even years) working on your body, there are areas you’re proud of and areas you’re still hoping to change. CoolSculpting will help you take those final steps to improve the stubborn spots that have been making you crazy. It’s common to reach fat loss plateaus where you’re generally healthy and slim, with pockets of fat that still persist. Those problem areas cling to the extra insulation, and don’t seem to respond to any amount of dieting or exercise. Don’t turn to extreme measures to try to make a difference – choose a treatment that works.
Many patients find that the confidence granted them by CoolSculpting helps them stay committed to an ongoing healthy lifestyle. Treatment gets them into a happy place with a body they love – and they’re ready to continue routine exercise and healthy eating to keep it. In this way, CoolSculpting can be incredibly motivating. You’ll be in your “skinny” jeans every day – and love every moment of it. This confidence and commitment to preserving your results change more than just your body. You feel more successful and stronger – and your daily attitude reflects that.
Real Results Show Up & Then Last
In as little as 3 weeks post treatment, patients start noticing fat slimming. There’s as much as a 20-25% reduction of fat cells in the treated area. Unlike traditional fat loss through diet and exercise, these fat cells aren’t just smaller – they’re gone. As you can see in the above diagram, this makes a significant difference to fat content in the area.
Adopting a healthy eating regimen and ongoing exercise plan will help your slimmer shape last for years to come.
