CoolSculpting is the ideal, nonsurgical treatment for reducing those stubborn areas of fat that just won’t go away with diet and exercise. When combined with a healthy life style and regular exercise routine, the results from CoolSculpting are part of a long-term physical rejuvenation plan. While CoolSculpting can reduce the bulky areas of fatty tissue that exercise cannot, these two techniques for body sculpting work in completely different ways.
Losing Weight Through Diet and Exercise
Doctors agree, there is simply no substitute for old-fashioned diet and exercise for achieving a thin, trim body and taking care of your overall health. Not only do balanced meals and routine workouts make the body look its best, it improves heart health and general well-being.
When we lose weight through lifestyle changes, our fat cells shrink, giving the body a sculpted look. However, no matter how much weight is lost, this set number of fat cells in the body does not change. If we gain weight in the future, these same fat cells will become larger, lending to a flabby, unappealing appearance.
CoolSculpting Eliminates Fat Cells
CoolSculpting contours the body using Cryoplipolysis, freezing away fat cells. The 35-minute treatment brings the target area down to a frigid temperature. The intense cold is completely safe for healthy tissues, but as the fat cells are frozen, they die off. Over the next several months, these damaged cells are naturally metabolized and washed away by the body. The treated area will see a 20-25% reduction in fatty tissue.
The best part of CoolSculpting is that the eliminated fat cells are gone forever; no more will be generated. The body’s set number of fat cells has actually decreased along the treatment area. If someone would like to see more improvement, a second CoolSculpting session can safely double the results. Remember: surrounding fat cells can still expand, so for long-term results, stay with a healthy diet and routine exercise.
Why even bother to lose weight before CoolSculpting?
Since CoolSculpting is so good at eliminating fat cells, many patients wonder why not just use the noninvasive treatment as a weight loss method. Good question! First of all, a well-balanced diet and exercise plan is worth more than just weight loss, it improves overall health. Second, CoolSculpting can only tackle a small area of fatty tissue, such as the abdomen, inner or outer thighs, upper arms, or breast tissue; it does not provide generalized weight loss. For these reasons, CoolSculpting is ideal for improving stubborn yet isolated areas of fatty tissue that have not responded to traditional weight control methods.
