Using CoolSculpting to Get Rid of Love Handles

Are you feeling frustrated by love handles? Love handles refer to the excess fat that can accumulate at the sides of the waist; love handles may hang over the waistband of pants and become more visible when you wear tight clothing. 

Many people struggle with love handles despite being at their goal weight. Diet and exercise often aren’t effective for pockets of stubborn fat, including love handles. In these cases, CoolSculpting is an excellent option to slim down the waist and hips for a more toned physique. 

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved device to treat excess, stubborn fat in the flanks, thighs, abdomen, back, upper arms, under the buttocks, and around the breasts. The CoolSculpting device delivers controlled laser technology at precise levels to the treatment area. The cool laser targets the fat cells under the skin to freeze and eradicate them.

One to two months after the CoolSculpting treatment session, the body naturally processes and removes the damaged fat cells. The treatment area is left more toned and sculpted without any scarring. The fat cells targeted in CoolSculpting are permanently destroyed, so the body can’t store as much fat in the treatment area as before. 

The Benefits of CoolSculpting for Love Handles

  • Dramatic improvement

During a CoolSculpting treatment, approximately 25% of the exposed fat cells are permanently destroyed. This provides a dramatic improvement to the contouring of the treatment area. 

Since CoolSculpting can permanently destroy fat cells in the love handles, it leaves the area permanently sculpted.  

  • Speed

The duration of CoolSculpting treatment depends on the targeted area. However, it typically takes just 30 to 60 minutes, making it a convenient option for busy patients. 

  • Little to no recovery downtime

Little to no downtime for recovery is required after CoolSculpting treatment, unlike surgical fat reduction methods.
