When you are trying to lose weight, those last few pounds can feel impossible to get off. For some people, due to genetics or having children, they actually can be impossible to get off. No matter how much you work out or change your diet, there may still be some problem areas on your body that you can’t seem to fix. But, you don’t have to be unhappy about it for the rest of your life. Now there is a way to reduce fat in those stubborn areas without surgery. Learn more about CoolSculpting during a consultation with our team at at ONE Medical Spa & Salon in Chula Vista, CA!
What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting®, also known as cryolipolysis, is a non-surgical procedure that freezes fat cells below the surface of your skin. It kills the fat cells that are then metabolized by the body. It is an FDA-approved non-invasive alternative to liposuction procedures for targeting stubborn fat.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
A member of our team will use a set of cooling paddles that is appropriately sized to your problem area. By using suction and cooling, the paddles target fat cells below the surface of your skin. Since fat cells are more sensitive to cold than other cells, the fat cells are destroyed. The procedure lowers the number of fat cells in the target area. Over the period of a few months, your body flushes out the dead fat cells.
What Areas Does CoolSculpting Work On?
The procedure works well on both men and women. CoolSculpting can help you with the following problem areas:
- Upper neck
- Under the armpit
- Buttocks area
What Results Could I Expect?
Some people see results immediately after the procedure. During the first few weeks, you will see continued improvements as your body metabolizes the dead fat cells. Most people report seeing the full effects of the procedure between two and four months.
It is important to have realistic goals and expectations for treatment. While adult bodies cannot produce new fat cells, it is critical to lead a healthy lifestyle to maintain your results.
How Is CoolSculpting Different from Losing Weight?
CoolSculpting actually destroys fat cells from targeted areas. Losing weight simply shrinks fat cells. If you lose weight, you can easily gain it back in the same areas. There are also spots in your body that you are genetically predisposed to carry fat, like neck or lower belly, that won’t be affected by weight loss.
CoolSculpting is the perfect solution for trouble spots since fat cells are removed from those areas. However, it is important to remember it is not intended to be a weight loss procedure or replace diet and exercise.
