When people think of body sculpting, the name CoolSculpting often comes to mind. This treatment uses specialized cooling devices to freeze fat cells in a specific area of the body. The freezing kills the fat cells, which are then naturally eliminated by the body, resulting in substantial fat reduction. CoolSculpting can be applied to many areas of the body, the most common being the chin, neck, love handles, arms and abdomen. Rejuvenate Med Spa in Oak Brook, Illinois provides CoolSculpting services that get lasting results at an affordable cost.
Why Body Sculpting Has Become So Popular
Losing weight has never been easy. Diets, exercise programs and medications can all help bring down body mass index, but, often, stubborn fat cells hang on in certain areas of the body, especially the middle and the thighs. Hours at the gym often don’t eliminate the fat from these areas. Body sculpting involves treatment for a specific area with stubborn fat resistance.
CoolSculpting freezes fat away from these areas with a non-invasive treatment.
Where CoolSculpting Works
Chin and Neck
Chin and neck fat present some of the most difficult challenges for those trying to lose weight. Months of diet and intense exercise often produce great results: more muscle, less fat, significant weight loss and better cardiovascular fitness. However, chin and neck fat often stubbornly hang on. As we age, even very fit and active people develop the dreaded double chin that remains in place even after eliminating belly fat and achieving a healthy weight range.
Because of its refusal to melt away, surgery used to be the only way to get rid of the dreaded double chin and neck fat that makes us look older and less fit than we really are. Often, a double chin packed with it the double trouble of drooping neck skin. Curing this required a separate neck skin tightening procedure. These procedures are time-consuming, require recovery periods and come with side effects.
The CoolSculpting Difference for Chin and Neck
CoolSculpting targets and eliminates fat cells lodged in the neck and chin without the need for surgery. There are no side effects or downtime. The fat disappears naturally after treatment.
The developers of CoolSculpting have introduced a device especially for the neck and chin, named the CoolMini. This CoolSculpting device is smaller than the standard version and designed to fit into the chin area so it can target the fat cells in this region and destroy the maximum number possible.
As with other CoolSculpting processes, the treatment takes approximately sixty minutes and involves no discomfort. Within weeks of treatment, double chins become single again. Once the fat is eliminated from the neck and chin area, it stays away, provided the client follows a healthy diet and exercise routine. Say goodbye to that double chin with the CoolSculpting Mini and look years younger after just one treatment.
Though the name implies a warm, fuzzy feeling, anybody with love handles hates them. Also known as flanks, love handles are fat that form on the sides of the abdomen. They contribute to a rounded middle and expand belly bloat. Love handles top the list of fat areas that dieters and exercisers seek to eliminate.
But what if you are working out religiously, have replaced Big Macs with big bags of kale and still suffer from lingering love handles? Many people try every abdominal machine at the gym and still can’t seem to rid themselves of those pesky handles. Sometimes, diet and exercise are not enough to outflank these stubborn flanks, and you need an alternative strategy.
How CoolSculpting Helps
CoolSculpting provides the edge you need to shrink love handles into contoured muscle. Since you have two love handles, they can be treated simultaneously in a process known as DualSculpting. Through DualSculpting, you can double your results in half the time.
As the CoolSculpting treatment eliminates the fat cells that build those love handles, you can hit the abdominal machines at the gym to build solid muscle in place of squishy fat. In a matter of weeks, you’ll achieve a whole new look.
Even if you keep fit through weight lifting or other upper body exercises, as you age, fatty deposits tend to collect in the arms. Flabby, loose skin often accompanies these deposits, resulting in the much-lamented “bat wing” look. Bat wings often occur even in very fit people, making them one of the top reasons for visits to plastic surgeons.
Before CoolSculpting, surgery was the only option for eliminating these stubborn bat wings. Surgery requires liposuction to remove the fat. In addition to downtime and side effects from surgery, liposuction for bat wings does nothing to tighten the loose skin left over once the fat is removed. As a result, additional procedures are often required to tighten the skin. CoolSculpting avoids the need for liposuction and skin treatment.
How CoolSculpting Works on the Arms
Because CoolSculpting triggers the body’s natural mechanisms for fat removal, fat cells are gradually eliminated over a period of weeks. Because the fat loss is gradual, the skin has time to adapt, naturally contouring with the gradually thinning arms.
CoolSculpting is particularly effective at eliminating bat wings without the loose skin because it uses the CoolFit applicator for the treatment. The CoolFit applicator is designed for longer treatment surfaces, such as the upper arms. Because of its natural fit, it eliminates more fat cells and allows skin to naturally fit around the smaller surface.
Everyone gains some fat in the middle as they age. Most find they have to work out harder and diet more selectively just to keep abdominal fat from expanding, much less eliminate it. There are many great ways to reduce abdominal fat, including aerobic exercise, abdominal strengthening, low fat, high-fiber diets and reducing sugar intake to below 50 grams per day. Running particularly induces the body to attack belly fat, as does biking and rowing workouts.
While these strategies certainly reduce belly bloat, often even the most assiduous exercisers and dieters still carry around those few extra pounds that seem permanently stuck to their abdomens. CoolSculpting provides the solution to those stubbornly clinging abdominal fat cells. It treats the upper abdomen, the stomach area and the dreaded “spare tire”.
If you need treatment for just one of the abdominal regions, the standard CoolSculpting system will freeze away the remaining fat cells and show results on the scale and in the mirror. When the entire abdomen needs treatment, the DualSculpting method can cover this large area in one treatment.
Reducing Abdominal Fat for Health
Abdominal fat is not just unsightly: it’s also unhealthy. Long-term fat deposits surround the internal organs, damaging their effectiveness. Eliminating this fat allows the body to function optimally, helping it fend off disease and increasing vitality.
CoolSculpting can help you attain better health and a youthful, fit look through abdominal treatment. With the “spare tire” deflated, you can build muscle where fat used to be, strengthening your core and building the much coveted six-pack.
Fat cells love to conglomerate in the thigh region, often growing to the point where they eliminate the thigh gap or create “saddlebags”. Aerobic exercise helps burn off many of these fat cells and weight training can build thigh muscle and push out unwanted fat. However, thigh fat often remains beneath the muscle, preventing you from attaining the shape you desire.
Thigh CoolSculpting freezes away saddlebags, leaving thighs slender and toned. Both thighs can be treated during one session using DualSculpting. CoolSculpting is particularly effective in the thigh region because of the custom CoolSmooth applicator, which is designed to reach fat bulges in the thighs that other applicators miss.
Many men suffer from gynecomastia, a condition where male breasts become enlarged. When the underlying cause of this condition is extra fat, CoolSculpting provides the ideal treatment. This condition is difficult to eliminate through traditional weight loss approaches. CoolSculpting freezes away the cells responsible for the excess fat resulting in a rapid reduction in breast size.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved cellulite treatment. The name CoolSculpting is a branded term for this process of fat reduction when using CoolSculpting manufactured equipment. CoolSculpting uses a process known as cryolipolysis, which employs freezing temperatures to kill fat cells. The application kills only fat cells, leaving all other body tissues unharmed. It also causes no damage to the skin.
The treatment is performed by a practitioner who uses the CoolSculpting machine to vacuum the skin above the area of fatty tissue into an applicator. The applicator then numbs the area and freezes the fat cells. The process takes approximately 60 minutes. CoolSculpting is performed on an outpatient basis No recovery time is needed, and no side effects occur in the vast majority of cases.
Once the treatment is complete, the fat cells in the targeted area are dead. However, they remain in the body for a time, so results are not instant. In most cases, the body naturally removes a large quantity of the dead fat cells within several weeks, and results then become apparent. It takes about four to six months for all the dead fat cells to leave the body.
How Effective Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting and other forms of cryolipolysis are highly effective body sculpting treatments that eliminate fat from specific areas of the body, such as the thighs, belly or back. It does not, however, remove fat throughout the entire body. Compared to liposuction, Coolsculpting is non-invasive and has no side effects, whereas liposuction requires recovery and has side effects in some people.
Clients who eat a healthful diet and exercise before and after their CoolSculpting treatments lose more fat than those who remain sedentary and don’t watch what they eat. In addition, after the treatment is complete and the fat cells are eliminated, those who practice healthy habits have a high rate of success at keeping the fat off permanently. However, clients who remain inactive and eat a poor diet after the CoolSculpting procedure are just as apt to regain the weight as anyone else.
CoolSculpting Is Painless and Affordable
This treatment takes just an hour. When the treatment is complete, you need no recovery time. You simply continue about your daily life as your body removes the frozen fat cells and the bulges drop away from the treated area. Results are permanent, provided you practice healthy dietary and exercise habits. CoolSculpting is a safe and economical way to permanently get rid of unwanted fat that does not respond to diet and exercise alone.
