A bit of extra fat can really ruin your day. You’re feeling confident and good about yourself, then you walk by a mirror and notice a bit of jiggle in your thighs or that your tummy is sticking out a bit more than you’d like. If diet and exercise aren’t doing much to get rid of that stubborn fat, it could be a good Coolsculpting target area.
Coolsculpting is a treatment that eliminates fat from the body by freezing it away. It turns out that super cold temperatures actually destroy fat cells, causing the body to flush them out over a few weeks or months.
A Coolsculpting target area might be your tummy, your chin or your thighs. The machine has applicators in a variety of sizes, each of which is specially designed to tackle a particular target area. Read on to find out if your stubborn fat is an area that can be treated with Coolsculpting.
It used to be that the only way to get rid of an unwanted double chin was through surgery, specifically liposuction. If the double chin was accompanied by drooping skin in the neck area, a neck lift was also often performed. Now, the double chin is a Coolsculpting target area.
In fact, the makers of Coolsculpting have develop a device that’s designed just for the chin area. It’s called the CoolMini and it works to restore contour to the chin area. You’re no longer left with limited options if you want to say “bye” to your double chin.
As its name suggests, the CoolMini is much smaller than your standard Coolsculpting applicator. It fits in the chin area perfectly. Like Coolsculpting in any other area of the body, treatment with the CoolMini takes about an hour. Some patients need just a single treatment to get the results they want; others might need a second treatment to get the best results.
The love handles are those areas of stubborn fat that often form on a person’s sides. They’re called “love handles” because they’re supposed to be something to grab when someone’s giving you a hug. But it’s a rare person with love handles who actually loves having them.
Fortunately, the love handles (or flanks, as they are sometimes known by the less affectionate) are another Coolsculpting target area. If you’ve done every ab exercise out there and follow a healthy diet but you’ve still got some jiggle in the middle, Coolsculpting might be your best option.
The tricky thing about love handles is that people have two of them. That gives you two options when you’re considering Coolsculpting. You can either treat your flanks one after the other, or your can treat both at the same time. Known as Dualsculpting, the process lets you double your results from the treatment in half as much time.
As you get older, your upper arms start to change. Even if you had toned and shapely biceps as a younger person, the development of fatty deposits and loose skin in the arm area can lead to a flabby, “batwing” look.
Coolsculpting can treat excess fat in the upper arm area, provided it’s mainly extra fat that’s the problem, not excess loose skin. If you have a lot of loose skin in the upper arms, removing any fat might make the issue worse. One benefit of Coolsculpting in the arms compared to liposuction is that the process of fat removal is somewhat gradual. The skin has time to bounce back as the fat is flushed away, instead of hanging loose immediately after liposuction.
Another benefit of Coolsculpting in the arms is that there’s an applicator designed just for use in that area. The CoolFit applicator is designed for longer treatment areas, such as the upper arms.
Like the love handles, if you want to get a balanced look from Coolsculpting in the arm area, you’ll either need two treatment sessions (one for each arm) or will want to consider Dualsculpting.
One target area Coolsculpting is most often associated with is the tummy or abdomen. It’s little surprise, given how many people want to get rid of belly fat or achieve a flatter tummy. Depending on which area of the tummy you want to treat, you might need DualSculpting or multiple treatment sessions.
Whether the goal is to get a thigh gap or to get rid of saddle bags, the inner and outer thighs can be treated with Coolsculpting. Dualsculpting allows you to treat each thigh at the same time, though you will need two sessions if you hope to treat both the inner and outer thighs.
There’s even an applicator designed specifically for the thigh area. The CoolSmooth applicator works on the outer thighs and is specifically designed to grab hard-to-reach fat bulges.
Coolsculpting can help remove fat in the breast area in men who suffer from gynecomastia, or enlarged male breasts. The treatment isn’t effective for all men with enlarged breasts but it can help reduce breast size due to extra fat. If there is a lot of breast tissue, surgery might be a better option to remove the actual breast tissue.
