Like teenagers congregating around their favorite pizza place at the mall, fat cells tend to hang around their favorite areas of your body, like your love handles, thighs, and belly. Even when you try to diet and exercise those stubborn fat cells away, they, like defiant adolescents, refuse to budge.
Defiant fat cells, however, are no match for CoolSculpting® body contouring. The board-certified dermatologists and facial plastic surgeons at Bopp Dermatology & Facial Plastic Surgery recommend nonsurgical, noninvasive CoolSculpting for their patients in Metairie, Louisiana who want to get rid of problem areas of fat for good. Here are five reasons to love this surgery-free body contouring system.
1. CoolSculpting freezes the fat right off your body
How cool is that? Actually, the temperature of a CoolSculpting treatment is so cool that it damages fat cells so they can no longer survive. Through a precisely controlled cooling system, a CoolSculpting treatment targets a specific area of stubborn fat and crystallizes the fat cells below the surface of your skin. Your body naturally eliminates the dead cells, so all you’re left with is a slimmer, more contoured silhouette.
It’s that simple. No repetitive exercises or starvation diet needed. Of course, if you do continue to maintain a healthy lifestyle, you’ll keep your newer, more slender shape long term. Fat cells don’t regenerate, so once they’re gone, they’re gone for good, which brings us to the next cool reason to love CoolSculpting:
2. CoolSculpting is a permanent solution to problem areas of fat
Weight loss is different than fat loss. Typically, sometime during your teenage years, your body begins to maintain a fixed number of fat cells. When you lose weight, you reduce the size of these fat cells, but if you subsequently gain weight, those fat cells have no trouble plumping back up again.
With CoolSculpting, you are eliminating a group of fat cells altogether, so they are unable to increase in size or regenerate in the treated area. So, with CoolSculpting, you’re actually reducing the number of fat cells in your body rather than simply shrinking them with weight loss. Typically, CoolSculpting reduces 20%-25% of fat cells in the targeted area, like your thighs or belly.
3. CoolSculpting works in all the right places
Don’t like the size of your thighs? Wish your belly was flatter and more toned? CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared for the most common areas of stubborn fat that men and women struggle to lose, including:
- Abdomen and love handles (flanks)
- Bra fat or back fat
- Fat under your buttocks
- Upper arms
- Inner and outer thighs
- Double chin
You can even treat more than one area at a time. The team at Bopp Dermatology customizes a CoolSculpting treatment plan to target your problem areas of fat so you get your desired body contouring results.
4. CoolSculpting is nonsurgical, noninvasive, and there’s no downtime
Because the CoolSculpting procedure is nonsurgical, you won’t need to take time off from your job or your busy routine for a lengthy recovery. Many people return to work right after a CoolSculpting session. And, while you’re in the office for a treatment, you can read, relax, or check emails. The CoolSculpting device works on the targeted area of fat while you sit comfortably.
You may experience some mild sensations of pinching or tugging as the CoolSculpting system gently suctions your fat into the cooling device, but once the area goes numb, those sensations usually subside. After a treatment, your skin may be tender or bruised, but these side effects are temporary and tolerable, generally resolving in a few days to a few weeks.
5. CoolSculpting is based on scientific studies and proven results
CoolSculpting is the No. 1 nonsurgical fat-reduction treatment, and it’s based on proven scientific studies. There are years of research to back up the technology behind CoolSculpting, and more than 6 million CoolSculpting procedures have been performed all over the world.
And, since CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared to eliminate fat in those pesky areas, you can be sure the procedure is safe. In fact, the CoolSculpting technology has built-in safety sensors that monitor the surface temperature of your skin. If it gets too cold, the system automatically shuts down.
If you’ve been wishing there was a way to get rid of fat without spending hours upon hours at the gym, you can make those wishes come true. CoolSculpting makes it possible to slim down problem areas in under an hour per treatment. Who knew there was so much to love about CoolSculpting?
