Noninvasive CoolSculpting Freezes Away Stubborn Fat Deposits

It would be gratifying and convenient if all you had to do to sustain a healthy body weight and a trim, well-proportioned figure was to follow the basic concept of energy balance.

You know the concept, right? The familiar, logical idea that eating more calories than you need leads to weight gain, while eating fewer calories than you need results in weight loss?

While it’s true that sustaining a consistent energy balance over time can help you control your body weight, it can’t always prevent you from developing small pockets of persistent fat as time goes on. 

You may not be able to suppress the accumulation of stubborn fat deposits, but you don’t have to live with them either. Here’s how noninvasive CoolSculpting® can make your trouble spots a lot less troubling. 

The biology of persistent fat

The way your body opts to store extra calories is influenced by a variety of factors, most of which you can’t control. If you and other people in your family tend to accumulate stubborn fat on the hips and thighs, for example, it’s likely that your shape is partly encoded in your genes. 

Your gender also affects the way your body hangs on to fat. Women typically have more fat deposits around their hips, lower back, belly, and thighs, while men are more likely to carry extra fat through their midsection and upper body.  

Your age can affect your body’s fat distribution, too. Beginning in your early thirties, your body starts replacing harder-to-maintain muscle tissue with easier-to-maintain fat tissue. 

Along with age-related hormonal changes, this helps explain why many people who have no problem staying trim through early adulthood often find themselves dealing with troublesome bulges as they approach middle age.  

Eating a nutritious diet and getting regular exercise can keep you fit and healthy, but these tried-and-true strategies don’t always diminish those stubborn bulges along your midsection, upper thighs, upper back, or chin. So what can you do when you’re already doing all you can?

The CoolSculpting solution

In the past, liposuction was the only way to spot-reduce unwanted pockets of persistent fat. While liposuction is still a highly effective body-shaping solution for many people, cosmetic surgery isn’t for everyone. 

Today, CoolSculpting noninvasive body contouring makes it easier than ever to get rid of unwanted pockets of stubborn fat. Backed by proven science and real results, this innovative treatment uses advanced controlled cooling technology to target, freeze, and eliminate the adipose cells that make up unwanted areas of stubborn fat. 

CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared to help reduce pockets of persistent fat from common trouble spots like your abdomen, flanks, back, upper arms, upper thighs, and the areas beneath your chin and along your jawline.

Say goodbye to stubborn fat for good

As the leading form of cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting progressively lowers the temperature of the fat cells beneath the surface of your skin without affecting your dermal tissues. 

Once the targeted fat cells are crystallized, your lymphatic system identifies them as waste and begins to flush them from your body. Because this natural waste-removal process is gradual, you can expect to start seeing a bit of slimming in the treated area about a month after your CoolSculpting session.

About two months after your treatment, after your body has had enough time to permanently eliminate about 90% of the targeted adipose cells, giving you a 20-25% reduction of fat cells in the treated areas. 

You may experience further slimming and sculpting effects for up to four more months, as your body continues to find and flush the crystallized fat cells.  

While many people get the results they’re looking for after just one CoolSculpting treatment, you may need multiple sessions to achieve more extensive body-shaping goals. No matter how many sessions are in your CoolSculpting plan, you can always expect a gentle, noninvasive treatment that doesn’t require any postprocedural recovery or downtime.
