Troublesome fat areas are the most irritating. They tend to remain even after you have changed your diet, changed your exercise habits, and improved the overall health of your body.
The nature of fat is what makes these fatty areas remain even when the rest of your body is at a healthy weight. They become even more problematic when they remain after you put a large amount of work into achieving physical fitness.
The good news is that you can freeze fat away forever. CoolSculpting® can help you control those fatty areas on your body, which can help you achieve that perfect form you’ve always desired.
Freezing Pesky Fat Away
Fat is resilient because it’s designed to provide long-term energy storage. Fatty areas that are far from muscles and organs that utilize fat tend to be problematic because of this unique quality.
This is why trouble areas tend to develop in isolated areas, which include the neck and torso, and areas with a greater concentration of fat, such as the buttocks or thighs. The fat cells tend to remain dormant while more accessible deposits are used.
Fat has one vulnerability – it doesn’t like temperature change. If fat cells become too hot or cold, they tend to become damaged due to the physical makeup of lipids.
CoolSculpting® removes heat from nearby tissues to damage fat cells. This leads to a controlled cell death that leaves other cells, such as skin and collagen cells, unharmed.
What Happens to the Fat?
The fat that gets frozen by CoolSculpting® remains while the body initiates processes designed to remove the damaged fat cells. The inflammatory response breaks down the affected cells gradually while the lymphatic system removes them as waste.
While the fat does “melt” away, it isn’t removed immediately like it is in procedures like liposuction. The result is a gradual loss of fat from treated areas that occurs over the duration of weeks to months. This produces a more natural removal of fat, which in turn gives the skin ample time to adjust.
When Should You Opt for CoolSculpting®?
If you have developed troublesome areas where fat seems to persist even after changing your diet and exercise regimen, then you may be an ideal candidate for CoolSculpting®.
Older patients, especially those who may not be ideally suited for surgical procedures such as traditional liposuction, may benefit from the non-surgical nature of CoolSculpting®. Coupled with other non-invasive procedures for skin tightening, this may make for the perfect way to reshape your body.
