Beyond Weight Loss: How CoolSculpting® Can Enhance Your Body Contouring Journey
If you’re familiar with CoolSculpting®, you probably know it’s the first FDA-approved, clinically proven, non-invasive treatment to reduce stubborn fat deposits by freezing them. While the treatment is popular for its weight loss benefits alone, as implied by its name, CoolSculpting’s® body contouring benefits are of equal, if not greater, importance. In fact, Southwest Florida’s Tru Glō Medspa believes that CoolSculpting® offers its Naples-area clients one of the best non-surgical body contouring treatments available.
Body Contouring’s Role in Enhancing Overall Appearance
While reducing excess fat can change the contours of your body, such changes occur randomly with most weight loss treatments. Thus, sculpting the body’s shape to reach a desired appearance requires additional work. Exercise can modify your body contours to some degree, but it takes significant time and effort and may not provide the desired results. That leaves invasive treatments like liposuction, fat transfers, lifts, and tucks, or less invasive procedures, such as laser sculpting, radiofrequency lipolysis, and CoolSculpting®.
With its ability to target distinct fat deposits, CoolSculpting® is a dual-purpose treatment that helps sculpt the body in conjunction with reducing fat. And it can do such pretty much everywhere on the body. Want to cut the appearance of a double chin? Check! Reduce those saddlebags? Gotcha! Slim and firm the abdomen? Yep. Or you can cool sculpt any of these other primary target areas:
- Upper arms,
- Bra area
- Flanks (love handles)
- Inner thighs
- Outer thighs
- Buttock folds and rolls
What is Coolsculpting®?
Also, as its name implies, CoolSculpting® works its magic by killing fat cells by freezing. Clinically referred to as “cryolipolosis, the frozen fat cells crystalize, and your body naturally breaks them down and removes them over the ensuing weeks and months. Results typically become noticeable within a month, but the most significant changes generally appear by the second or third month after your body has had enough time to remove the dead cells.
CoolSculpting® is a relaxed treatment that can be conducted in as little as 45 minutes and requires no downtime. During your treatment session, an applicator is applied to the target area and lowers the temperature of your skin and fat to a discomfort level described as how your skin feels when submerged in ice water. Once treated, the session concludes with a vigorous massage of the treated area to further accelerate fat cell death.
Most patients report experiencing temporary numbness and tingling after their session, but this feeling typically subsides over the next few hours. About 10 percent of patients report actual pain following their session, but it’s easily addressed with over-the-counter pain relievers.
The Benefits of Coolsculpting®
If the clinically proven weight loss and body contouring results have yet to pique your interest, consider these other CoolSculpting® benefits:
- Produces natural-looking results—does not cause lumpy or uneven skin contours that can emerge through other fat reduction treatments.
- Provides permanent results—Adults do not produce new fat cells—the ones they have either increase or decrease in size depending on diet and exercise. CoolSculpting® permanently removes a percentage of existing fat cells, decreasing the targeted area’s ability to expand due to weight gains.
- No downtime—patients can resume all normal activities immediately after their session.
- Personalized treatment—working in consultation with your contouring expert, you can tailor your desired look.
- Boosts self-confidence—the weight loss and enhanced body shape will allow you more freedom to dress how you want and show off your body with ease.
Additionally, CoolSculpting® is a highly effective treatment for men who want to reduce love handles to enhance their V-shaped core, treat man boobs (gynecomastia), or reduce fat from under the chin.
Coolsculpting® Success Stories
If numbers measure success, consider that to date more than seven million treatment sessions have been performed worldwide. Among these numbers are numerous celebrities—including Khloe Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Lindsay Lohan, Jennifer Aniston, Mariah Carey, Ali Landry, and Debra Messing, to name a few—who have publicly praised their CoolSculpting® results. In clinical trials, patients reported average reductions in body fat of 21.5% to 43%, and almost 80% reported satisfaction with the results.
