Where’s the Love?
For reasons unknown, the universally hated muffin top has been termed “love handles”. To say that few people love those handles is an understatement. They create weird shapes under clothing and draw attention to unflattering areas.
CoolSculpting to treat Muffin Tops
CoolSculpting is a new and innovative non-surgical solution to fat reduction and is ideal for reducing those love handles. Developed by Harvard scientists, it is clinically proven process that involves freezing fat cells without damage to your skin. The best part is that you are awake during the procedure and can watch TV, be on your laptop, or listen to music for just the 1-hour procedure and then you can return to your normal activities.
CoolSculpting works by Dr. Shapiro applying a vacuum pressure that pulls 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 in which you will see a reduction in the size of the treated area.
Results are not immediate and may take a couple of months to emerge but results typically last between 10-15 years, especially in those patients who maintain normal weight levels. The procedure is short and is only slightly uncomfortable for the first 5 minutes. Personal consultations are necessary to determine whether CoolSculpting is a good option for you.
