Weight loss can be a tough journey. It takes hard work, patience, and discipline to avoid those cravings. So, when you see fat on your body that isn’t going away, it can be discouraging. You may start wondering if all of your hard work and late nights in the gym were for nothing.
The truth is, no matter how hard you try, some fat just won’t go away. Don’t worry, Pure MD’s team of cosmetic specialists can help with CoolSculpting®.
CoolSculpting and weight loss
CoolSculpting isn’t a weight-loss procedure; it helps you lose stubborn fat. Certain parts of your body have fat cells that don’t always respond to healthy eating and exercise. These stubborn areas include:
- Under the neck
- Thighs (inner and outer)
- Sides (love handles)
- Back and bra fat
CoolSculpting can give you much better results when you reach your weight loss goals. And if you want to get the most from your procedure, keep active and eat a healthy diet.
Skip the surgery
Surgical procedures like liposuction do a great job of removing fatty tissue. However, it comes with many risks; not to mention recovery time.
With CoolSculpting, you can lose fat with no complications. It’s quick, safe, and surgery-free. You can get back to your daily routine as soon as you leave our office!
How CoolSculpting works
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved fat-reducing procedure. It uses a unique science called cryolipolysis, which freezes fat cells so your body can break them down.
We apply a gel pad to your skin and vacuum your fat tissue into our handheld applicator. It’s normal to feel some cold sensations and pressure at first, but it goes away after a few minutes.
We then use our applicator to freeze your fat tissue. Your surrounding tissue, nerves, and cells aren’t harmed.
CoolSculpting procedures normally take an hour to finish. But it depends on how many parts of your body you want to target. Once your fat cells die, your body removes them as waste.
What to expect after CoolSculpting
It takes around four months for your body to completely remove your dead fat cells. But you start to see the results three weeks after your treatment. CoolSculpting can remove up to 25% of your fatty tissue, so it’s worth the wait.
You might have some minor soreness, but it’s nothing worse than the soreness after intense workouts. You might have some numbness in the treated area as well.
