Sometimes your diet and your workouts can’t give you the kind of results that you want. Everyone has stubborn fat, and very few people can get rid of it for good by following a diet and working out every day. There is a way to reach your body goals. At Kaniff Cosmetic Medical Center in Sacramento, CA, we want to introduce you to Coolsculpting. This body contouring treatment can give you the kind of results you may have never thought possible.
How Much Does Coolsculpting Work?
Coolsculpting is a body contouring treatment that’s been studied, verified, and proven to be an effective way to target and treat stubborn fat in as little as just one treatment. It can reduce the total amount of stubborn fat in your problem areas by 20 to 25 percent after just one session. It works, it delivers results, and it’s helped millions of people get the bodies of their dreams.
What Is Coolsculpting?
Coolsculpting is a body contouring treatment designed by Harvard-based scientists. These scientists found a way to permanently remove stubborn fat through a process called cryolipolysis. This process targets fat by freezing it. Fat doesn’t like to be cold, and it can no longer survive at a certain temperature. These scientists capitalized on this fact by creating a treatment that targets, destroys, and kills fat cells so that once the body removes them, they’re gone for good.
How Does It Work?
The Cryopolosis process works by crystallizing fat cells, which leads to their ultimate distraction. Once these fat cells die, the body responds by illuminating them to the lymphatic system. As the body gradually flushes the cells away, your results will develop slowly, and you’ll notice improved tone and a decrease in the total amount of stubborn fat in your problem area.
What Happens During Treatment?
Your treatment will begin with a consultation. At our office, we provide free consultations so that you can learn more about the treatment, and we can determine if you are a candidate who will benefit from all that it has to offer. At this consultation, you’ll meet with our team leader, who is an expert in this body contouring treatment.
She will discuss your health history, analyze your problem areas, and review your goals to ensure that this treatment is a safe and effective option for you. Then, she’ll develop a treatment plan tailored to your individual needs so that you can get the results that you’re hoping for.
The Fat-Freezing Process
Your technician will place the cooling pad and the treatment applicator on your target area to begin the treatment. You will feel an intense cold sensation, which will subside within five to ten minutes. Your total treatment time will depend on several factors, including how many areas you choose to treat and your desired treatment area’s size. Most sessions take less than one hour.
This treatment was designed for versatility and accessibility. The device has multiple treatment applicator pads that can be placed on different body areas to treat different sized treatment areas. We can effectively treat your problem area with these applicators. During your initial consultation, we will choose the right applicator for you based on the area that you want to treat so that you can get the kind of results that you’re looking for.
What Areas Can It Treat?
- Inner and outer thighs
- Double chin
Is It Safe?
How Long Does It Take To See Results?
This process requires some patience because it relies on the body to remove the fat cells once they are destroyed. The body does this gradually over three to four months. The benefit of a gradual process is that your results will appear gradually, so you won’t look like you had a treatment done. You’ll get a little tighter and slimmer with every week that follows your initial treatment.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Once the fat cells in your treatment area die and your body gets rid of them, they’ll be gone for good. You will get permanent results as long as you maintain those results by following a healthy lifestyle inclusive of a healthy diet and consistent workout routine.
As long as you stay within five to ten pounds of your healthy weight, you can expect your results to last forever. If you gain weight post-treatment, new fat cells may re-deposit themselves in your treatment area and sabotage your results.
How Can I Maintain My Results?
Most patients who seek out this treatment are already in the habit of living a healthy lifestyle before they schedule an appointment. If you already live a healthy lifestyle, maintaining your results will be second nature. If you need a little more discipline, find someone who will hold you accountable and who can help you follow a healthy diet and exercise each week.
What Are the Benefits?
This treatment has many benefits, which is part of why it’s so popular. It’s a results-driven treatment that significantly reduces the total amount of fat in your most stubborn problem areas.
You Won’t Have To Rely on the Gym
Some people love the gym; most people don’t. If you’re not a fitness enthusiast, excessive exercise is the last thing you want to spend your time doing. While exercise is essential to your health, this treatment will allow you to exercise in moderation, not in excess. You’ll no longer have to feel like you need to spend hours at the gym to get results, but instead, you’ll get lasting results from as little as one session.
You Can Treat Multiple Areas
The best part about this treatment is that you’re not limited to one treatment area. Some patients choose to treat multiple locations during a session, while others wait and schedule separate appointments to address other areas. Many of our patients undergo Coolsculpting to address one target area, and they love their results so much that they quickly schedule a second treatment for a different area of their body so they can look that much better.
There’s No Downtime
Invasive fat removal treatments almost always involve incisions, surgical measures, and extensive recovery. This treatment won’t. There’s no downtime so you can resume all of your normal activities immediately following your session. You can even exercise because movement is what helps activate your lymphatic system, and it is through this system that your body will flush the fat cells, resulting in a slimmer you.
You Will Lose Inches
Losing inches gives you more dramatic, visible results than losing pounds do. When you lose inches, your body proportions change for the better, and your clothes will look and fit better. One of the best ways to monitor your results is to take regular measurements to give yourself tangible evidence of your body transformation each week.
Who Is a Candidate?
The best candidates for Coolsculpting are those who are at or near the goal weight. If your diet has made you feel discouraged because it hasn’t been able to help you lose stubborn fat, this treatment will finally help you reach your goals. If you spend hours at the gym but still can’t get rid of the fat in your problem areas, this treatment can do what the gym can’t.
Who Isn’t a Candidate?
The best way to understand this treatment is to learn more about who isn’t a candidate. Coolsculpting is not a weight-loss treatment. It will not help you lose weight, and it cannot treat large areas of non-pinchable fat. If you are not at or near your goal weight but still want to benefit from this treatment, we will advise that you lose the necessary weight to reach optimal health.
We can then help target and spot any areas with stubborn fat that haven’t responded to your lifestyle changes. The following individuals do not qualify as candidates for this treatment:
- Individuals who qualify as obese
- Those who are not at or near their goal weight
- Those who plan on undergoing treatment and then trying to lose weight
- Pregnant or nursing women
- Individuals who cannot tolerate cold temperatures
