Avoid the Dreaded Holiday Weight Gain with CoolSculpting
Feeling a bit bloated still from that Thanksgiving dinner? Chances are, you’re not alone. The holidays are a wonderful time to spend with family and loved ones, but it can also mean lots of overeating and, unfortunately, the occasional weight gain. But not to worry – there’s a revolutionary new procedure out that can make that extra pooch disappear. Even better, it’s noninvasive and takes only an hour. What is it? CoolSculpting.
CoolSculpting is a revolutionary fat reduction procedure that is non-invasive, and requires no dieting and no exercise. This FDA cleared treatment is a state of the art method of ridding the body of resistant fat that diet and exercise have failed to remove. It is fantastic for stubborn muffin tops, thigh bulges, spare tires, and stubborn back fat.
CoolSculpting was developed by Harvard Scientists and is a clinically proven procedure with thousands of happy patients that involves freezing fat cells without damage to your skin. A Vacuum pressure is used to pull targeted areas between cooling plates that over a period of an hour cause fat cells to begin a process called cryolipolysis. This breakdown of the fat cells is complete over a period of 2 to 4 months, during and after you will see a reduction in the size of the treated areas. There are no needles, and no lasers, and you can watch TV, be on your laptop, or listen to music for the hour during the procedure. After the treatment, you can return to normal activities.
CoolSculpting is performed in “cycles” with each cycle taking an hour and covers one area. 60 minutes is required for the tissue to reach the correct temperature to cause the fat to shrink. Typically, separate cycles are needed for the upper and lower abdomen (each an hour), and each flank requires separate hour cycles.
You can expect to see the full results in about 4 months, as the body’s process of removing the fat is gradual and accomplished over time, so the complete changes aren’t immediate. Estimates are that the CoolSculpting effects should last between 10-15 years, especially in those patients who maintain normal weight levels.
You should be in good health in fairly normal weight, and simply have areas of fat that have proven hard to get rid of. Many CoolSculpting patients find that their results have given them incentive to begin new habits with diet and exercise that have resulted in further weight loss and enhanced self-esteem.
