When diet and exercise alone cannot eliminate unwanted fat, there are non-surgical treatment options available to give you the slender, slimmer-looking silhouette you desire. With no downtime, needles, or anesthesia, fat freezing has emerged as a popular procedure for safely targeting and destroying resistant fat. At Pure Medical Spa, we are pleased to offer our clients CoolSculpting, an FDA-approved, non-surgical cosmetic procedure that yields incredible, long-lasting body contouring results. This Body Fat Freezing treatment is recommended as it is non-surgical & non-invasive.
Why Do Clients Love CoolSculpting for Body Contouring?
Body fat freezing, also known as cryolipolysis, is a non-invasive treatment that offers individuals a way to achieve their desired body shape without undergoing surgery or experiencing significant downtime.
Here are some key reasons why this treatment is popular:
- Body fat freezing does not require any incisions or surgical procedures. It is performed using a specialized device that delivers controlled cooling to the targeted area, making it a non-invasive alternative to surgical fat removal methods such as liposuction.
- While the initial application of the cooling device may cause a sensation of intense cold, it typically subsides quickly as the area becomes numb. Many individuals find the treatment comfortable enough to read, work, or relax during the procedure.
- One of the significant advantages of body fat freezing is that it does not require any downtime or recovery period. After the treatment, individuals can usually resume their regular activities immediately. This makes it a convenient option for those with busy schedules.
- The elimination of fat cells through cryolipolysis is a gradual process. Over a period of several weeks to months following the treatment, the body naturally metabolizes and eliminates the damaged fat cells. This gradual process allows for natural-looking results that appear as the body continues to slim down and reshape.
- Body fat freezing is specifically designed to target and reduce stubborn fat deposits in localized areas. It can be customized to address different body shapes and areas such as the abdomen, flanks, thighs, upper arms, or double chin.
- The fat cells that are eliminated through cryolipolysis do not regenerate. Once the fat cells are destroyed and eliminated from the body, they are gone for good. However, it’s important to maintain a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise and a balanced diet to prevent the remaining fat cells from expanding.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
The science behind CoolSculpting lies in the principle that fat cells are more sensitive to cold temperatures compared to other surrounding tissues. This selective sensitivity allows for the targeted elimination of fat cells in specific areas of the body.
When the cooling device is applied to the skin, it extracts heat from the underlying fat cells, reducing their temperature to a level that triggers a process called apoptosis, or programmed cell death. The exact temperature required to induce apoptosis in fat cells while preserving the integrity of other tissues is around -5 to -10 degrees Celsius (23 to 14 degrees Fahrenheit).
During the cooling process, the fat cells crystallize and form ice crystals within them. This damages the structural integrity of the fat cells, eventually leading to their breakdown. Over time, the body’s immune system recognizes these damaged fat cells as waste material and gradually removes them through the lymphatic system and natural metabolic processes.
The targeted applicators used in body fat freezing treatments are designed to fit specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen, thighs, arms, and chin. These applicators have various shapes and sizes to accommodate different body contours and ensure optimal contact with the skin. By applying controlled cooling to these areas, the fat cells within them are selectively targeted and treated.
The cooling process primarily affects the fat tissue without causing significant damage to the surrounding skin, muscles, or organs. This is due to the fact that fat cells have a higher water content and a lower freezing point compared to other tissues. Therefore, they are more susceptible to the effects of cooling, while the surrounding tissues remain relatively unharmed.
How Can Fat Cell Freezing Give Me A Toned Look?
CoolSCulpting can provide clients with a more youthful and toned appearance by targeting specific areas of stubborn fat. Here are a few examples of how body fat freezing can achieve these results:
Reducing Abdominal Fat
Many individuals struggle with stubborn fat deposits in the abdominal area, such as love handles or a “muffin top.” Body fat freezing can effectively target and eliminate these fat cells, resulting in a flatter and more contoured abdomen. This can create a more defined waistline and improve overall body proportions.
Slimming The Thighs
The thighs are another common area where stubborn fat tends to accumulate. Body fat freezing can selectively target and reduce fat cells in the inner and outer thighs, helping to create a smoother and more toned appearance. This can lead to improved leg contours and enhanced body symmetry.
Sculpting The Arms
Some people may have excess fat in the upper arms, commonly referred to as “bat wings.” Body fat freezing can be used to address this concern by reducing fat deposits in the upper arm area. This can result in more sculpted and defined arms, giving a more youthful and toned look.
Eliminating Double Chin
Body fat freezing can also target submental fat, commonly known as a double chin. By treating the area beneath the chin, the procedure can help reduce the appearance of excess fat and create a more defined jawline. This can contribute to a more youthful and contoured facial profile.
Enhancing Body Shape
Body fat freezing can be used on various areas of the body simultaneously or in multiple sessions to address multiple concerns. By strategically targeting specific areas of stubborn fat, such as the abdomen, thighs, arms, and chin, the treatment can help create a more balanced and harmonious body shape. This can result in an overall more youthful and toned appearance.
Am I A Good Candidate for CoolSculpting?
Determining if you are a good candidate for body fat freezing depends on various factors related to your goals, body type, and overall health.
Body fat freezing is most effective for individuals with localized pockets of stubborn fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. If you have specific areas, such as the abdomen, thighs, arms, or chin, where you struggle to reduce fat despite a healthy lifestyle, body fat freezing may be a suitable option.
CoolSculpting is generally more effective for individuals who are close to their ideal weight or within a reasonable range. It is not a weight-loss solution for individuals with a significant amount of excess weight or obesity. Body fat freezing can provide noticeable improvements in body contouring, but it’s important to have realistic expectations.
What to do after CoolSculpting to maximize results?
To maximize the results of CoolSculpting, it is important to follow post-treatment instructions, maintain a healthy lifestyle with balanced diet and regular exercise, stay hydrated and be patient as results take time to become noticeable.
What foods to avoid after CoolSculpting?
After CoolSculpting, there are no specific foods that need to be completely avoided. However, it is generally recommended to limit the consumption of processed foods that are high in refined sugars, unhealthy fats, and additives. Additionally, it’s advised to moderate your intake of sugary foods and beverages, choose nutrient-dense whole foods such as fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains, and stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water.
How long does fat freezing last?
The effects of fat freezing, or cryolipolysis, can be long-lasting. The treatment works by permanently eliminating a portion of fat cells in the treated area, and these fat cells do not regenerate. Once the fat cells are crystallized and broken down through the cooling process, they are gradually eliminated by the body’s natural metabolic processes. The gradual nature of this elimination means that the results of fat freezing become more apparent over time
