A Little Trim Off The Sides, Please: What CoolSculpting Can Do For Your Body
- Posted on: Jun 15 2021
Many people can pinch some fat on their sides, tummy, thighs, or other areas. Those who can accomplish this challenge often feel challenged when they try to eliminate the stubborn fat they are pinching. It’s safe to say that fat-reduction and body contouring are two of the most common cosmetic goals for adults of all ages. The goal is easier said than done. If you’ve been trying to achieve a goal for your body contours, you may have realized this very quickly. You may be considering how to change up your strategy. We might suggest CoolSculpting. Here, we discuss a few of the benefits that this treatment has to offer.
CoolSculpting Targets Fat
Fat reduction is not the same thing as weight loss. When you lose weight through diet and exercise, there is no telling where that loss will occur. You may want a slimmer tummy but your weight loss may be seen more in your legs or buttocks. The great thing about CoolSculpting is that we can target a specific area. That’s the whole point of this device. Where can we target fat? So far, CoolSculpting is performed on areas including the:
- Bra bulge (the pinchable area next to the armpit)
- Under the chin (the “double chin”)
- Upper arms
- Back, where fat bulges at the bra line
- Flanks, or “love handles”
- “Banana roll” (the area under the buttocks)
The Treatment is Effective
CoolSculpting has been around long enough for us to see that it offers great results. Patients undergo a series of sessions, after which the body naturally eliminates the fat cells that were targeted using freezing temperature. Clinical studies have shown that a patient can lose up to 25% of the fat in the treatment area after each session.
CoolSculpting Does Not Intrude on Life
One of the reasons non-surgical fat reduction treatments like CoolSculpting are so popular is because they don’t require downtime. After a CoolSculpting session, a patient can immediately go back to their normal activities. There is no need to avoid exercise or other more strenuous activities and no need to take time off work. This doesn’t mean there are no side effects. Patients can expect some soreness or tenderness, numbness, tingling, and mild cramping.
