Do you have stomach fat that won’t respond to diet and exercise? If so, you’re not alone. The good news is there’s a non-surgical solution to stubborn fat.
CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared procedure which eliminates fat in problem areas (abdomen, flanks, thighs, under the chin). If your healthy lifestyle isn’t enough to banish fat, CoolSculpting may be the solution you’ve been waiting for.
What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting targets fat cells in your problem areas and freezes them without harming your skin. When the fat cells die, your body naturally eliminates them. Once treated, they’re gone for good!
It’s one of the most convenient procedures available for stomach fat because there’s no surgery or downtime required. You’ll be done in less than an hour and you can read or relax while you’re waiting.
I’ve Tried Everything – Will This Really Work?
CoolSculpting is designed to eliminate the fat that resists diet and exercise. The number of sessions will depend on your goals and the number of areas being treated.
You may see changes as early as three weeks after the procedure. The best results are seen two to three months after treatment. The body continues to flush out fat cells for up to six months. Some people choose to schedule a second session to achieve the goals they’ve set for themselves.
No Surgery? Do I Have to Take a Supplement or Start a Fitness Program?
There are no pills, shakes, diet plans, or exercises involved. However, many people find the results from CoolSculpting give them the motivation to maintain a healthier lifestyle. It starts an upward spiral of the positive feelings that produce healthy lifestyle choices.
Is It Right for Me?
A clinician will help you determine if CoolSculpting is right for you. He or she will discuss your health history, goals, and budget. Keep in mind, CoolSculpting is a great non-surgical alternative to liposuction – not gastric bypass surgery. It’s not recommended for clinical obesity.
Will It Hurt?
Initially, you’ll feel pressure and intense cold that only lasts a few minutes. This might feel like pinching, tugging, or numbness. Generally, these sensations subside and people read, nap, watch videos, or work on laptops.
As with any procedure, CoolSculpting has a few potential side effects. After the procedure, you may experience temporary numbness, stinging redness, swelling, or mild bruising. If you have certain rare conditions, you won’t be able to have this procedure. A clinician will discuss your health history to determine if this is right for you.
What Happens If I Gain Weight Later On?
CoolSculpting can’t prevent future weight gain. If the holiday season hits hard, you may discover that weight gain happens evenly throughout your body. Many people found that the weight doesn’t stick to problem areas like it did in the past.
With over one million CoolSculpting treatments completed, doctors and patients trust it to be safe and effective. Learn about your options and speak with a trained clinician to see if these treatments are right for you.
