The fact of the matter is, the amount of fat cells we develop in childhood follow us into adulthood. As a result, some of us have stubborn fat pockets that aren’t responsive to diet and exercise. These will vary greatly from person to person because we all carry fat in different areas of the body.
SAY GOODBYE TO FAT CELLS
The technical name for CoolSculpting is “cryolipolysis”, which is scientific jargon for fat freezing. This one of a kind technology literally freezes your fat cells to death.
REAL SCIENCE, REAL RESULTS
CoolSculpting’s state of the art fat freezing technology makes your trouble spots a lot less troublesome.* Fat cells aren’t fans of the cold and, at the right temperature, will freeze. Your body will naturally eliminate dead cells within about 1-3 months, resulting in a 20%-25% fat reduction in treated areas. *long term results are based on two case reports.
Weight Loss vs. Fat Reduction
Do these sound synonymous to you? Although similar concepts, they are not the same.
Weight loss does not always give you the shape you want, but fat reduction can change the contours of your body.
Weight gain and loss revolve around the growing and shrinking of existing fat cells.
Coolsculpting technology actually reduces the number of fat cells by
20% - 25% in specifically treated areas.
What does it feel like?
CoolSculpting is an easy non-invasive treatment that will rid you of excess fat cells in no time.
After developing a treatment plan with your provider, she will apply a clear gel pad to create a barrier between the CoolSculpting panel and your skin in the trouble spots you’re ready to reduce.
You will feel a slight sucking as the science gets to work. Throughout the treatment, you may experience some pulling, tugging, stinging, and cold at the treatment area. Take the time to relax! During the treatment, you will be able to read a book or catch up on emails.
After removing the applicator, your provider will do a quick massage to break up fat cells and you are on your way! Most patients experience little to no downtime after treatment.
