CoolSculpting is a revolutionary, non-invasive treatment designed to reduce stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. It uses cooling technology to freeze targeted areas of fat. Once the treated fat cells are frozen, they naturally die.
Over time, the body processes the fat and eliminates the dead cells to create a more toned appearance. If you’re intrigued and wondering whether you’re a good candidate for CoolSculpting, keep reading.
4 Signs CoolSculpting May be Right for You
CoolSculpting is a safe and effective treatment that can help you tone your body and feel more confident in and out of your clothes. Here are some signs that CoolSculpting is a good option for you.
1.) You’re at or Near Your Target Weight
It is important to understand that although CoolSculpting does get rid of stubborn areas of fat, it’s not a weight loss treatment. In most cases, patients lose up to 25 percent of the unwanted fat from the area of treatment.
While you may be able to lose a bit more fat by scheduling multiple treatments, CoolSculpting is not designed to help you shed 20, 30, or more pounds. If you’re at or near your target weight, you may undergo this treatment. However, if you’re overweight or obese, it’s wise to hold off until you’ve reached your target weight.
2.) You’re Bothered by Stubborn Fat
You may be at a healthy weight but still have fat pockets that you can’t seem to get rid of. If you lead a healthy lifestyle and believe your fat is too stubborn to leave, Coolsculpting may be your best bet. It can easily remove these fat pockets in a safe, non-surgical way.
3.) You’re Not Pregnant or Considering Pregnancy
Since pregnancy changes your body and is known to leave fat deposits on the abdomen and other areas, you should not receive a CoolSculpting treatment if you’re pregnant or hope to become pregnant in the future. We recommend you wait until you’ve completed having children before pursuing CoolSculpting.
4.) You’re Not Interested in Liposuction
If you’ve discussed liposuction with a plastic surgeon and realized it is not for you, CoolSculpting can be an excellent alternative. It does not require anesthesia and comes with no downtime. In the event you’re not sure whether you’d be better off with liposuction or CoolSculpting, consult a plastic surgeon.
