CoolSculpting to the Rescue
Some people seem to magically melt away their holiday weight gain once they stop indulging in the Christmas cookies. Others never gain a pound at all. However, there are plenty of people who put on a few pounds or gain a dress size every December. To make matters worse, it may seem that no matter how frequently they workout or how many salads they eat, the fat still lingers.
If this sounds like you, there is a solution. It is called CoolSculpting and it is ideal for those particularly stubborn areas of fat that just don’t seem to budge, no matter how much you work out or how many calories you cut. If you want to fit back into your old, favorite clothes again, or just feel more confident about your body as you enter the new year, learn more about CoolSculpting to see if it’s right for you.
What does CoolSculpting do?
You might have guessed it from the name – CoolSculpting destroys fat in specific areas of the body through freezing temperatures. During a treatment, a special device is placed on the area being treated, chilling it to sub-freezing temperatures. Although the fat is destroyed, healthy tissue will remain intact and undamaged.
How long does CoolSculpting take?
A single CoolSculpting treatment typically takes about an hour. Each CoolSculpting device treats a single area at a time, so if you want to target more than one part of the body, such as both love handles, or the tummy and the back, you will two hours of treatment. You also have the choice to go to a clinic that offers two CoolSculpting machines. Mirror Mirror Beauty Boutique offers DualSculpting, with two CoolSculpting machines, cutting the treatment time for multiple areas in half.
When will the CoolSculpting results show?
Results from the CoolSculpting procedure do take some time to become visible, often as long as 16 weeks. Unlike waiting for months to find out if your diet or exercise plan is working even a little, when you have CoolSculpting, you will have a good idea what your final results will look like. It is a matter of waiting for definite results, rather than hoping for changes.
Why Is it Better Than Other Fat Removal Options?
There are several reasons why you might prefer CoolSculpting over other fat removal options, such as liposuction. While CoolSculpting won’t remove as much fat as liposuction potentially can, the noninvasive technique does not have the long recovery period. Since you are not under any anesthesia during the treatment, you can hop in your car and get back to work, school, or errands immediately afterward. There is no need to rest in bed or take a week off of work to recover.
Another benefit CoolSculpting has over other options is that the treatment is not uncomfortable. You might feel a bit of a sting in the beginning, but the area soon will become numb from cold, and you won’t be aware of the device anymore. During the hour treatment period, people are able to comfortably chat with friends, browse the Internet, or read a book.
Is the Fat Gone Forever?
The fat destroyed during a CoolSculpting treatment is gone for good. Remember that this doesn’t mean you’ll be immune from weight gain for the rest of your life. You can still put on the pounds and accumulate fat in other areas, and any fat cells that remain after the treatment can increase in size if you put weight on later.
You will want to keep up any diet or exercise routine you have started in order to maintain your weight and keep your new size. When the holiday season rolls around again this year, you will need to be diligent about monitoring your intake of cookies and champagne. You will be proud of your newly found figure, so hopefully keeping an eye on those high calorie treats should be easier to do. One cookie or drink is fine, just keep in mind, everything is best in moderation.
