CoolSculpting® is currently one of the most popular procedures for eliminating targeted stores of unwanted fat. Many dieters are disheartened to discover that natural weight loss only makes their bodies uniformly smaller. In order to truly hone in excess fat deposits, professional body sculpting treatments such as liposuction and cryolipolysis (fat freezing) must be used. No amount of diet and exercise can alter your physical proportions in any significant way. If you’re eager to create a beautifully balanced physique or a very specific body shape, you should definitely consider the power of CoolSculpting®.
Natural Weight Loss and its Effects
Every time you drop pounds, your entire body becomes smaller in a completely uniform fashion. Common trouble zones like the under-chin area, the inner thighs, the waistline, and the backs of the arms will show evidence of your weight loss, but they will not dramatically change in size in relation to your other physical features. The inability to selectively remove fat by working out and cutting calories has kept countless people from building their ideal bodies. CoolSculpting® is changing this fact by providing a safe and non-invasive way to selectively and permanently eliminate unwanted fat. Easier and safer than liposuction, and lasting just under an hour, this increasingly popular fat freezing procedure can streamline and sculpt even your most frustrating trouble zones.
Avoid Fast-Multiplying Fat Cells with Cryolipolysis
In addition to being unable to spot reduce fat, natural weight loss also creates a higher likelihood of failure when it comes to ongoing weight maintenance. That’s because rather than disappearing as the result of diligent dieting and exercise, the fat cells throughout the body merely shrink in size. More important, these significantly smaller fat cells tend to multiply at a faster rate following weight loss. This means that regaining lost weight becomes easy. Small lapses in your diet plan and workout routine could have major consequences.
Conversely, CoolSculpting® eliminates unwanted fat cells forever. These cells don’t merely shrink down to a smaller and more inconspicuous size. Instead, they actually die off and get routed out of the body. Even though it is still possible for people to put new pounds on following their cryolipolysis treatments, most CoolSculpting® patients are able to enjoy incredibly long-lasting benefits, and without a lot of effort.
How CoolSculpting® Targets Unwanted Fat Stores
CoolSculpting® is an incredibly simple procedure. During these treatments, a small cooling appliance is placed on top of the targeted area. This device is used to lower the temperature of the treatment zone in an entirely controlled way. Fat freezes at a far higher temperature than muscles, skin, and other tissues do. As such, it is possible to crystallize and kill off fat cells without causing any damage to the tissues that surround it. Once the desired temperature is achieved, the cooling appliance is taken off, the area is assessed, and the patient is free to go.
How Long Does It Take Results to Manifest?
There is always some manner of waiting when it comes to weight loss and professional fat removal. For instance, with liposuction, patients have to wait for post-treatment swelling, inflammation, and many other uncomfortable aftereffects to abate before being able to truly assess and appreciate their procedure results. With CoolSculpting®, there is no messy or challenging aftercare to contend with. More importantly, apart from slight redness and temporary hardening of the treatment area, there are virtually no aftereffects either. Instead, you’ll simply be waiting for your body to break down and process the fat stores that have been frozen to the point of crystallization during your treatment. In most cases, noticeable changes begin to manifest within just a few weeks.
How CoolSculpting® Stacks Up to Liposuction
Ideal candidates for both CoolSculpting® and liposuction are relatively near or at their ideal body weight. In addition to having a long recovery period, this method of fat removal also entails a considerable amount of risk. It is therefore best-suited to patients with realistic expectations and a commitment to following all recommendations for post-treatment care.
Cryolipolysis, however, can remove slightly more fat during a single treatment depending upon the location of targeted area, and the type of fat being addressed among other factors. People seeking CoolSculpting® can actually be within 30 to 40 pounds of their ideal body weight. Given that there is neither surgery nor recovery time with this treatment, this is considered to be a very low-risk procedure. It is also important to note that there is virtually no risk of scarring with cryolipolysis due to the fact that no invasion is involved. Consumers who are seeking modest amounts of highly targeted fat loss tend to love the impressive power of CoolSculpting®.
What It Means to Crystallize Fat Cells
Different types of cells throughout your body can sustain different types and levels of damaging before passing the point of possible repair. With fat cells, crystallization prevents recovery and ensures total cell death. Thus, even after the CoolSculpting® device is removed from the treatment area, there is minimal risk of having these cells survive. As they are gradually broken down and moved out of the body, the targeted zone will become slimmer, sleeker, and visibly more refined.
What to Expect During a CoolSculpting® Procedure
You can expect your CoolSculpting® treatment to be a totally relaxing and indulgent experience. After all, most people spend the majority of their appointments reading books, watching movies on their personal devices, or simply resting. Once you have been fitted with the fat freezing appliance, you’ll simply need to wait for the desired temperature to be reached. This usually takes between 30 and 40 minutes. Then, the machine will be removed, and you can be on your way. There is no need to take time away from your regular activities following this procedure. You can return to work or school, engage in physical exercise, and do just about everything else that you’d normally do without any modifications. The doctor will provide needs-specific aftercare instructions following your procedure. More often than not, however, aftercare for single-zone and double-zone fat freezing treatments is minimal to none at all.
How the Power of CoolSculpting® was Discovered
Fat freezing treatments hardly make people think of toddlers and juice bars, but these things are exactly how the power of CoolSculpting® was discovered. Researchers noticed that kids who ate a lot of frozen treats had the tendency to develop prominent cheek dimples. Over time, it was understood that the selective destruction of local fat cells was responsible for this development. By refining this idea, it was possible for scientists to create a safe and reliable method streamlining different areas of the body like the abdomen, the under-chin area, the arm, buttocks, and thighs by simply freezing away excess stored fats.
Using CoolSculpting® to Overcome Frustrating Plateaus
There are many dieters who are on the verge of giving up entirely on their weight loss plans due to delayed results. Losing pounds is easy when you first get started out. As you grow closer to your weight loss goals, however, changes in your metabolic functioning will invariably slow your progress down. This is incredibly frustrating when you still have major changes that you want to see manifest across your most problematic trouble zones. If this sounds familiar, then you can use CoolSculpting® to eliminate the very last of your unwanted fat, and without significantly disrupting your life, altering your current life habits, or taking on an incredible amount of risk.
Because weight loss with CoolSculpting® is a gradual process, the results from these treatments tend to manifest in a very natural-seeming way. Even your closest friends and family members won’t be able to tell that your new and better-balanced physique is the result of a cosmetic procedure. As such, if you want an inconspicuous way to start moving closer to your overall cosmetic goals, this procedure can provide it.
Boost Your Confidence and Look Better In Your Clothes With CoolSculpting®
People with ideal physical proportions have the ongoing benefit of being able to find clothing that fits their bodies perfectly. In fact, not only do their clothes fit well, but they tend to feel good too. There’s no excess friction or tightly binding elastic for these individuals to deal with. The truth of the matter is that most clothing is designed and produced for perfectly proportioned bodies. If you have imbalanced physical proportions due to excess fat storage in select body areas, even the process of shopping for a new pair of jeans can be downright nightmarish. Cryolipolsis has the power to change all this by effectively eliminating targeted stores of fat. You can use this procedure to slim your waistline, trim your inner thighs, or get rid of flab at the backs of your arms. With this treatment, you will be able to love the way you look in shorts, short skirts, short-sleeved shirts, swim trunks, and other body-baring attire.
Beyond getting a better fit from all your clothes following treatment, you can also look forward to experiencing a tremendous boost in your self-confidence. This increase can be hugely rewarding when it comes to staying on track with your natural weight loss or weight maintenance plans. The physical changes that this procedure helps manifest can keep you feeling positive, empowered, and motivated for a very long time to come. This is especially true for dieters who are feeling particularly depressed due to challenging weight loss plateaus.
