This time of year, many of us are trying on bathing suits and staring at our reflection worried about a bulge here or there. Despite a winter and spring filled with exercise and eating well, we still have a few of those few stubborn areas. Don’t let this get you down, CoolSculpting can help save your beach body.
You probably think it’s too late for CoolSculpting to get you in shape for the beach. While you might be a little late to the party, there will still be plenty of time to show off the results CoolSculpting can help you achieve. The beach isn’t the only reason to shed that unwanted fat. Don’t you want to look your best all year long?
Stubborn fat can be anywhere, the muffin top, love handles, bra fat, the thighs, belly, double chin, you name the body part and stubborn fat can be there. Unfortunately, for many, this can make them feel self-conscious all year long, not just in bathing suit season. For some people, no matter how well they monitor their diet or how much they exercise, they just can’t get rid of those last few pounds that settle into all the wrong places. CoolSculpting can be the solution.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
The CoolSculpting treatment utilizes a patented technology known as Cryolipolysis. This technology is a non-invasive procedure that cools the adipose tissue or what we like to call bodyfat. The cooling process causes the fat cells to be permanently injured and can no longer serve as a place to store fat. The expired cells are naturally processed and eliminated through our immune system the same way any other dead or damaged cells are handled in the body. The result is reduced body fat in a specific area without damage to other tissues, such as skin or muscle.
CoolSculpting, with its various applicators, can treat several of areas that are susceptible to visible fat bulges. The treatments can be effective on the abdomen, flanks, back, inner and outer thighs as well as submental fat or double chin.
The newest applicator from Zeltiq is called the CoolAdvantage. The benefit is a larger treatment area with a shorter treatment cycle, almost half the time of the prior CoolSculpting applicator. This CoolSculpting applicator has three interchangeable contours allowing it to effectively treat different areas of the body. Patients reported greater comfort during treatment with the use of the different customized contours and with a shorter treatment cycle, you are out of the office in no time.
This applicator is designed to effectively treat smaller bulges like submental fat, commonly known as the double chin. In a 2015 consumer study conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, 67% of those surveyed were bothered by submental fat. The CoolMini offers patients a non-invasive alternative to surgery.
The CoolAdvantage Petite
One of the greatest areas of concern when it comes to fat deposits is the upper arm. With the development of the CoolAdvantage Petite, this area can be treated effectively. CoolSculpting is currently the only non-invasive treatment to reduce upper arm fat.
The CoolSmooth Pro
The CoolSmoothPro applicator is used to treat the outer thigh. The CoolPro operates a bit differently than the other CoolSculpting applicators, which use vacuum pressure to draw the tissue between the cooling panels. Designed for use on non-pinchable fat, the CoolSmooth Pro does not use vacuum pressure and is instead secured with a strap.
The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-invasive. This means there is little recovery compared to surgical procedures. Patients can immediately return to normal activities such as work or exercise. They may experience redness in the treated area which may last up to a few hours. Some localized bruising or swelling may occur, which clears within a few weeks. Many patients experience a temporary dulling of sensation in the treated area. Most importantly, there is little to no social downtime.
