At first glance, losing those stubborn bulges around your waistline seems like a pretty straightforward process: Eat right, get plenty of exercise, and limit your alcoholic intake.
But what if you’ve been following those steps and you’re still not seeing any results?
Unfortunately, diet and exercise isn’t always enough – especially when genetics are working against you. Many people tend to easily store fat in certain areas, despite following a healthy lifestyle. Add in the aging process, and it’s no wonder more clients at Nowak Aesthetics (serving San Diego) are interested in CoolSculpting for body contouring.
Wondering if CoolSculpting really works? Take a look at all the answers to the questions you have about this innovative treatment:
- CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved non-invasive procedure that’s designed to target your most stubborn fat cells. CoolSculpting uses a large handpiece to deliver freezing energy to areas like the love handles, stomach, and thighs. CoolSculpting also features a smaller handpiece (CoolSculpting Mini) to treat targeted areas like the armpits and underneath the chin.
- Here’s how the one-hour procedure works: the freezing energy penetrates multiple dermis layers to target stubborn fat cells. The fat cells are frozen until they crystallize and break down; the body’s waste processes naturally remove these destroyed fat cells. Over a period of 12 weeks, you’ll see significant inch loss; in many clinical trials, patients experienced up to 21% reduction in fat cells.
- Since CoolSculpting is non-invasive, there’s virtually no downtime associated with the procedure. Most patients are able to continue with their normal routine, although some report feeling swelling and slight bruising at the treatment site.
- Most people need a few CoolSculpting treatments to see optimal results.
CoolSculpting has a high patient satisfaction rating, making it an excellent choice for patients who want to see significant inch loss without surgery. The best candidates for CoolSculpting are within 25 pounds of their ideal weight and are already following a healthy lifestyle.
