Are you athletic and active, but have certain areas of your body with a little extra fat (thighs, hips, love handles, abs or those irritating armpit puffs) that no matter what you do, exercise or diet, it will just not go away or firm up? As frustrating as it can be, even fit people can accumulate unwanted fat in certain areas of the body, especially as we get older. For the most part, active people can have low body fat, but that doesn’t mean they are immune to unwanted fat deposits.
As we get older, some fat cells can become resistant to diet and exercise which then starts to add up in areas of the body (thighs, hips, love handles, abs or those irritating armpit puffs) which fortunately are all treatable with CoolSculpting.
This amazing treatment works by permanently reducing the fat cells in the targeted area through a process called cryolipolysis. Cryolipolysis is the non-invasive reduction of fat deposits to reshape body contours. The exposure to cooling (“fat freezing”) destroys fat cells.
The best way to explain how this process works is to think of a glass of water which is still fluid whether in a refrigerator or sitting out in room temperature, unlike butter, which gets firm in the fridge and softens when sitting out. Butter = fat cells. Fat cells freeze into a hard-ish mass when in colder temperatures. Water based tissue (muscle and skin) can handle the cold better than fat which then allows the CoolSculpting treatment to freeze fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissue. The CoolSculpting applicator is applied to the desired area for 45-75 minutes (depending on area) causing the fat cells to crystalize and die, resulting in a permanent reduction of about 25% of the fat cells in the area. Over the next three months, the body disposes of the dead fat cells naturally through our lymphatic system, some seeing dramatic changes in as little as 4 weeks.
CoolSculpting is non-invasive with no downtime! You can return to your active lifestyle immediately. The best part is that the fat cells that were eliminated will not regenerate! As always, keeping a healthy diet and regular exercise routine helps maintain your weight, and CoolSculpting is not a weight loss treatment.
