It is not easy to lose weight because even if you make healthy choices and follow a strict exercise regimen. Eating leaner proteins, less sugar, and regular workouts can keep us fit, but sometimes that is not enough to shake off the weight and meet our fitness goals.

If you have strictly followed your diet and exercise, and yet frustrated to see unsightly bulges, it’s time to look for an alternative. Why not try CoolSculpting to remove your extra pounds?

CoolSculpting is a safe and effective measure to lose your unwanted fats. This fat reducing procedure freezes the fat cells away and helps you achieve your body goals.


Weight Loss and Fat Reduction

You might have heard the term weight loss and fat reduction before, and you may think that it is the same. It may be confusing since it involves fat cells. The number of our fat cells has not changed since our teenage years. And will remain the same as we get older. What changes are the size of your fat cells. So, as you gain weight, the fat cells double or triple their size.

When you lose weight by dieting and exercising, the fat cells are only getting smaller. It does not make the fat cells disappear, and if you gain your weight back, it will only increase the size of the fat cells again.

The Fat Cells After CoolSculpting

Unlike other weight-loss methods, CoolSculpting can reduce the number of fat cells in the body and not the size. With the CoolSculpting procedure, you can see a reduction of fat cells in the specific areas of the body by 20-25%.

In CoolSculpting, the fat cells are frozen and treated thru natural means. These dead cells are naturally removed from the body. The treatment does not change the fat cells in other untreated areas. As such, it can target the fat bulges left behind when you undergo dieting and exercise. As a result, you will have a more sculpted body.

With CoolSculpting, you may still weigh the same, but you will look fit and thinner.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

Now that we have established that CoolSculpting will not make you lose weight, you might not believe that it actually works. Here is an explanation on how CoolSculpting works.

During the CoolSculpting procedure, the technician uses an applicator to touch the parts of the body that need sculpting. This applicator has a small vacuum at its end to target the fat cells that are grouped together. It delivers a  precise and controlled cooling to the area and encourages fat cells death with freezing.

Some people are worried about the procedure, but CoolSculpting is safe and does not cause any nerve or skin damage. Its temperature is conducive for cell death, and the technician uses a gel-like lotion on the area to protect the skin.

After application, the cooling process will commence. The cell will start to freeze and crystallize, which causes them to die. After a week, the body will naturally break down these dead fat cells and flush them out of the body like any other dead cells. Once these dead fat cells are out of the body, it will never return.

Does it Work?

Many people are skeptical about CoolSculpting because of its process. Many studies support its effectiveness in reducing fat. The treatment on the thighs has the highest satisfaction levels among patients and the abdominal area the least.

However, the level of satisfaction remains subjective because it is all about patient selection and expectations. How well the treatment works also depends on your provider. Practice due diligence in choosing who will do the procedure.
