CoolSculpting Stubborn Belly Fat
Beauty is subjective – no one can deny that! But if there’s one beauty standard that’s universally acknowledged, that would be a flat, toned belly. From fashion magazines to models on the runway, and leading actors and actresses on the billboards – if there’s one common denominator in the ideals that they present, it would be the allure of a flat tummy. No matter the gender, a toned midriff is the dream of the masses. But despite putting in countless hours at the gym, cranking out squats at the speed of light, and holding onto the grueling planks, the stubborn belly fat sometimes just doesn’t seem to go away.
One of the main reasons why it’s so hard to lose belly fat is because it’s considered as an ‘active fat’. That means that, unlike some fatty tissues that simply sit dormant, belly fat releases hormones that can have an impact on your health and your ability to lose weight, especially around the waist and abdomen region. If one wishes to rely on traditional methods, it would take consistent hard work, intense workouts, and a strict diet to ensure that you actually shed some inches around your waistline. But sometimes, ticking off all these boxes also doesn’t yield the desired results. This is where CoolSculpt comes to save the day!
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved fat reduction method called cryolipolysis. Like other forms of cryolipolysis, it uses freezing temperatures to break down fat cells. Fat cells are more affected by cold temperatures than other cells, which means that the cold doesn’t damage other cells, such as the skin or underlying tissue.
During the procedure, your practitioner vacuums the skin above the area of fatty tissue into an applicator that cools the fat cells. The cold temperature numbs the site and ultimately kills the fat cells present in the region. Most Coolsculpting procedures take around 35-60 minutes, depending on the area a person wishes to target. After the procedure, the dead fat cells leave the body through the kidney. The dead fat cells don’t necessarily disappear overnight. It may take up to six months for the body to fully process and eliminate dead fat cells. In that time, the area of fat gradually decreases by an average of 20%.
Most people need two CoolSculpting sessions per target area. These sessions are usually spaced 6-8 weeks apart. Because fat cells are destroyed during the process, the results of this treatment are long-term. People who maintain a healthy lifestyle see the best and most long-term results from a Coolsculpting treatment as it is best used to reduce stubborn pockets of fat rather than as a weight loss treatment.
Why should one choose the CoolSculpting treatment?
Unlike popular forms of fat reduction treatments like liposuction and tummy tucks, CoolSculpting only kills the fat cells while leaving the rest of the area unscathed. This treatment doesn’t require any cuts, anesthesia, or medications that could cause an allergic reaction. The machine used for the treatment increases the safety of this procedure as it delivers precisely controlled cooling to targeted areas. If the skin becomes too cold, the system is set to shut down immediately.
Analysis in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal found that, out of 1,445 people, only 12 people — fewer than 1% — reported complications after the treatment. The most common complication reported was less sensation in the treatment area. CoolSculpting only targets the fat cells so there is absolutely no harm caused to the skin or the underlying tissues making it an incredibly safe procedure.
No lengthy downtime
During the procedure, the skin barrier isn’t broken and since the treatment is non-invasive, there is absolutely no downtime required to recover from the procedure. The session lasts anywhere from 35-60 minutes, so one can squeeze it practically anywhere in their day making it a perfect choice for people with busy schedules.
Popular forms of fat-loss treatments like Liposuction deliver a dramatic result, making it apparent to the world that you just got a procedure done. However, with CoolSculpting the results are more natural and show up after some time. As the dead fat cells take 3-6 months to get expelled from the body, one experiences a gradual decrease in their size leading to a more natural look and feel.
Allows spot reduction
It’s a well-acknowledged fact that spot reduction is downright impossible through traditional methods of losing weight. Working out rigorously leads to fat loss from the entire body, while strict dieting can make one grow weaker without any assurance of ever getting the desired results. CoolSculpting allows one to do targeted fat reduction, making it the most ideal choice for those who are just looking to get rid of stubborn fat pockets.
