The Difference Between Losing Weight Versus Losing Fat
It may be confusing to hear that reducing fat is not the same as losing weight. It’s all about what happens to fat CELLS.
After dieting and weight loss, fat cells get smaller, but the number of fat cells stays the same. When weight is gained, fat cells get bigger. The CoolSculpting process works to reduce fat cells, leaving you with a lower number of fat cells in which to store fat.
The CoolSculpting procedure can reduce stubborn fat safely and effectively, without surgery or downtime.* This fat reduction treatment is the only FDA-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and destroy diet- and exercise-resistant fat.*
Freeze away fat? It comes down to science. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are normally crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and excretes these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
You can reshape your body!* We will develop a customized CoolSculpting treatment plan that addresses your problem areas. Additional sessions may further enhance your results. Your individualized treatment plan will be tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
It’s easy to sit back, relax and say goodbye to stubborn fat. After we select the area(s) to be treated, the device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied. During your procedure, you may choose to read, check email, or even take a nap.
The CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is completely non-surgical, so you can typically return to work and normal activities right after.*
You will like what you see. In the weeks and months following your procedure, your body naturally processes the fat and excretes these dead cells.*
Are you ready to love every view of you? The sooner you set up your consultation, the sooner you’ll see results in the mirror — lasting results in those areas that have resisted all efforts through diet and exercise.* Contact us today to find out if the CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is right for you.
