At one time or another, everyone has noticed excess fat on their body that they wished they could magically get rid of. You may have tried every trick in the book for fat loss―from crazy fad diets to countless hours of cardio to high-waist body shaper briefs. There are even body contouring procedures that involve surgery for fat removal.
But have you heard the latest buzz around CoolSculpting? Many celebrities have reportedly tried it, and it’s becoming a popular, non-invasive skin-tightening and fat-reducing procedure that’s been approved by the FDA. While CoolSculpting treatments are a great way to reduce some of the fat on your body, it’s critical that you understand the difference between losing weight and losing fat before getting a CoolSculpting procedure done.
What is CoolSculpting?
Sometimes, no matter how much diet and exercise you incorporate into your life, you can’t seem to get rid of stubborn fat. Whether you have unwanted stomach fat, love handles, upper arm fat, inner and outer thigh fat, bra fat, or a double chin, CoolSculpting may be the answer you’ve been looking for.
CoolSculpting is a method of getting rid of unwanted fat through a fat freezing procedure. Fat is more temperature-sensitive than your skin and goes through the cell death process before your skin does. During the procedure, a specialist applies a vacuum-like cooling panel over an area of your body. For a period of up to two hours, cooling panels work to crystallize your fat cells. Most people only experience mild discomforts like suction and cooling sensations.
Weight Loss vs. CoolSculpting
It’s important to understand the key differences between weight loss and CoolSculpting. Weight loss is losing weight while fat cells remain the same size. With CoolSculpting, you actually lose fat. After a certain age sometime in our teen years, the number of fat cells in our bodies becomes fixed. Losing or gaining weight does not change this number; instead, it changes the size of fat cells. After a CoolSculpting procedure, you actually reduce the number of fat cells in your body instead of just shrinking the size of them.
What Are the Results?
As far as CoolSculpting results go, you can expect a more visible change if you go for more than one treatment. Eventually, you will see up to a 25 percent fat reduction in the treated area. You may also notice an improved waistline and less bulging in the treated area.
