CoolSculpting® treatments can significantly reduce stubborn fat deposits without the use of anesthesia, needles, or surgical incisions. This patented, non-invasive procedure uses the principles of cryolipolysis to target fat stores that are resistant to diet and exercise. CoolSculpting treatments commonly target the inner and outer thighs, upper and lower back, arms, stomach, flanks, chest, knees, and chin. It’s equally beneficial for women and men.

How Does CoolSculpting® Work?

In essence, CoolSculpting treatments freeze fat cells to death. Precisely targeted and timed cooling of treatment areas results in reduced subcutaneous fat stores. The fat cells that are destroyed are subsequently metabolized by the body, which takes 2-3 months in most cases. As the weeks pass, you’ll be able to watch your body transform progressively into a more lean, sculpted state.

CoolSculpting is able to target fat deposits in places where healthy eating and regular exercise often fail. The process takes 1-3 hours depending on your goals, is painless, and is so simple that you can read, listen to music, watch television, or take a relaxing nap during treatment. There is no downtime expected, and you can return to all normal activities almost immediately.

Some patients experience mild to moderate bruising, swelling, and sensitivity after CoolSculpting treatments. These side effects typically self-resolve within 2-3 days. This safe cosmetic procedure has been performed worldwide more than 4 million times and has a high patient satisfaction rate.

What You Need to Know About CoolSculpting

girlHave you been struggling with weight loss and looking for new ideas to trim the fat? One option that you may be considering is CoolSculpting. While CoolSculpting will definitely give you a thinner look, it will not deliver the weight loss results you are looking for. This is due to how CoolSculpting works and the body functions.

How Fat Cells Develop and Change

The key to understanding how CoolSculpting works is to understand how fat cells affect weight. As you grow and get older, your body produces fat cells. The number of fat cells you have is fairly set by the time you reach the end of your teen years. If your body isn’t creating new fat cells, why do you gain weight?

Instead of the body creating new fat cells, the fat cells you already have get either bigger or smaller. When fat cells get bigger, you have more weight. When they get smaller, you lose weight. CoolSculpting doesn’t change the size of the fat cells in non-treated areas. What it does do is kill fat cells in the targeted area. Simply eliminating the fat cells in the targeted area is not enough to cause a drop in weight.

What CoolSculpting Can Do for You

If CoolSculpting won’t encourage weight loss, what does it do? The way CoolSculpting works is by freezing fat cells to destroy them. After the treatment, the fat cells will go through a decomposing process until they are absorbed by other cells and eliminated from the body.

CoolSculpting can help you with stubborn fat areas such as the tummy, waist, hips, and thighs. Often, eliminating the fat in these areas can help your clothes fit better and improve your appearance. The scale will stay the same, but you will look and feel thinner. If your doctor is recommending that you lose weight for health reasons, you will still need to seek out appropriate methods for weight loss.

CoolSculpting can help you achieve your goals of fitting into that old dress or your favorite pair of jeans, without diets and weight loss. If you would like to learn more about how CoolSculpting in Tampa can help you with your size goals, contact us today for a consultation.
