Do you have stubborn areas of fat that won’t go away? When you lose weight, fat cells become smaller, but the number of fat cells in your body remains the same. This is why dieting and exercise can still leave you with pockets of fat that won’t go away. When you gain weight, your fat cells simply increase in size.
One of the best and easiest ways to get rid of unwanted fat is CoolSculpting. This revolutionary, non-surgical technique freezes unwanted fat cells in targeted areas of the body. In the weeks and months following the procedure, your body naturally eliminates the treated cells. These cells are permanently gone from your body and do not come back. After the procedure you can usually return to normal activities immediately.
CoolSculping is an FDA-approved, highly effective and extremely safe fat-reduction method. The results are completely natural, and the fat cell distribution in untreated areas remains the same.
Some of the areas that can be treated with CoolSculpting include the upper abdomen, lower abdomen, back, inner thighs, outer thighs, hips, arms, and chin and neck. Once the area is selected, the device is positioned on your body, where it pulls up a bulge of fat between two cooling panels. You’ll experience a firm pull and pressure for an hour or so while the controlled cooling process takes place. While the procedure is taking place, many patients simply relax, read or work on their laptop.
Many people will only need one treatment. Expect to start seeing results in about three weeks, with major changes after one to three months. Your body will continue to flush out fat cells for up to four to six months!
CoolSculpting eliminates fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissue. You’ll be amazed at the results. If you’d like to find out more about the procedure, give us a call and schedule a private consultation.
