CoolSculpting has become one of the more popular fat reduction procedures on the market, including at our Gold Coast clinic. This is largely due to its ability to effectively remove unwanted fat cells without the need for surgery and lengthy downtime.
You’ve no doubt heard the saying “summer bodies are made in winter”. For some, that means adopting strict diets and daily fat-burner workouts to get their bikini body. But for others, regardless of how low their calorie intake is, they simply can’t shift some of the stubborn fat.
Enter CoolSculpting: the treatment that may help you achieve your goal before summer kicks in.
CoolSculpting helps to address those problem areas, like bulging love handles and tummy fat, by freezing the fat cells. Over time, the destroyed fat cells are eliminated naturally by the body.
5 reasons CoolSculpting should be on your winter to-do list
If you want to get a kick start on that summer body, here are 5 reasons why CoolSculpting’s fat freezing technology should be on your winter to-do list.
- It’s an FDA-approved fat reduction treatment
The beauty and cosmetic industry, as well as the diet and supplement market, is flooded with treatments and products that claim to be your quick fix to achieving a summer body. CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved and a clinically-proven body contouring treatment. This means in-depth research and rigorous testing has been done to ensure your optimal safety and reduce risks.
- It can remove 20-40% of stubborn fat
The breakthrough CoolSculpting treatment was first discovered by researchers of Harvard University. They found fat cells are particularly vulnerable to changes in temperature. By exposing the fat deposits to very low temperatures during a process known as cryolipolysis, the fat cells die before being naturally eliminated from the body’s lymphatic system.The CoolSculpting procedure has proven to remove up to 20-40% of stubborn fat from various treatment areas. That’s a significant amount of fat and body contouring for a non-invasive treatment.
- It’s a quick procedure with no downtime
Unlike other fat reduction procedures like Liposuction or Adominalplasty, CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment that negates the need for needles and a scalpel. A CoolSculpting session can take as little as 30-75 minutes depending on the treated areas and you won’t require any downtime. This means you can return to work immediately after the procedure or get back to your active lifestyle.
- You can target your problem areas
One of the common complaints about stubborn fat is that you can’t spot remove it with exercise and diet alone. While a healthy lifestyle can help you reduce your overall body weight and improve your muscle mass, you can’t necessarily choose where you want to see the weight loss. For example, no matter how hard you work, you may find your losing weight off your boobs but not off your upper arms or tummy.
CoolSculpting allows you to target problems areas. For example, if you’re wanting to fit into your favourite jeans, you may want to use the fat freezing treatment for your inner and outer thighs.
- Improvements can start to be seen in just 3-4 weeks
You may start to see some improvements in your body shape in just 3 weeks after your CoolSculpting treatment. As your body naturally processes and eliminates the destroyed fat cells over the next few months, your results will continue to appear. Most people will see the final results of the fat freezing treatment 4-6 months later.
