We know how difficult it can be for a person to lose weight. There are a bunch of physical, mental, and emotional hurdles that will need to be overcome in order to make long-term weight loss a reality. This is one of the reasons why when a person is focused and dedicated to diet, exercise, and a healthy weight loss program, they are so happy with the results. However, very few things can be as frustrating as looking at yourself in the mirror and seeing that although you are losing weight, you are still battling with stubborn pockets of fat around your midsection, your thighs, and your arms. If this sounds like the situation that you are currently dealing with, you will be happy to learn that you can erase stubborn fat with CoolSculpting® treatments.
What Is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment that has been helping many people around the globe to make stubborn pockets of fat disappear. This is a treatment that uses controlled cooling to attack the pockets of fat that diet and exercise alone do not seem to be able to address.
CoolSculpting® works because of the way that fat cells respond to cold temperatures. Fat cells are more sensitive to cold temperatures than the other tissues in your body. When they are exposed to extreme cold, they begin to break down. When a fat cell breaks down, it releases its fatty content, and then both the fatty content and the cellular debris are absorbed by the lymphatic system and removed as waste.
Interestingly, when fat cells are destroyed, your body does not produce new ones. So the effects that CoolSculpting® has on your body can be permanent.
What Should I Expect During the Treatment?
The fat is going to be brought down to a temperature where the fat cells begin to die. The surrounding tissue will be left completely intact. You will be able to get up from the treatment, go home, and return to your everyday activities as if nothing happened. There is no recovery time or downtime. Over the course of the next few months, you will watch as the fat in the areas that were treated begins to slowly disappear.
This treatment has revolutionized the way that many in the cosmetic medical community see body contouring.
