A healthy diet and exercise plan are important if you want to lose weight. Unfortunately, even with this healthy lifestyle, you may struggle decreasing the amount of excess fat in certain areas of the body. Thankfully, help is available. Today, more and more people are choosing CoolSculpting to help improve the look and shape of their body. Here are a few things you probably did not know about CoolSculpting treatments.
It Involves Freezing Cells
Coolsculpting gets its name for a reason – it uses cool temperatures to freeze fat cells. In reality, you should think of the process of freezing fat cells as melting a stick of butter under your skin.
The CoolSculpting tool's freezing temperatures target the unwanted, stubborn fat cells in certain parts of the body. Instead of technically freezing the fat cells, CoolSculpting melts them.
But, It's Not a Weight Loss Tool
While it can help melt away stubborn fat cells, CoolSculpting is not intended as a tool for weight loss. Therefore, if you need to lose an excessive amount of weight, it is best to work on a diet and exercise plan before using CoolSculpting.
Remember that CoolSculpting is intended to treat stubborn malleable fat, which diet and exercise cannot treat alone. You should technically be at or close to your ideal weight before considering this treatment.
Non-Invasive, Unlike Lipo
Liposuction can be a great option for anyone who wants to rid their body of stubborn fat. Unfortunately, liposuction is quite invasive, requiring anesthesia, an incision, and some time to recover.
CoolSculpting, on the other hand, is non-invasive. There are no incisions necessary, since the procedure uses a tool that freezes fat cells from the exterior surface of the skin. Because anesthesia or incisions are not necessary, you can resume normal everyday activities immediately after the CoolSculpting procedure.
Multiple Treatments Will Be Necessary
Finally, it is important to remember that you will probably need multiple treatments to see a significant change. The exact number of treatments will depend on your specific needs and goals, but also your ability to maintain a healthy lifestyle during and after the treatments.
You should continue eating well and exercising even if you are using CoolSculpting to treat stubborn fat. This will ensure that you not only have effective results but also maintain the results for many years to come.
CoolSculpting is not for everyone, so talk to your doctor before undergoing this treatment.
