What Are the Benefits of Body Contouring With CoolSculpting?
- Posted on: Jul 3 2020
Everybody deserves to have the fit, healthy, and sexy body that they’ve always wanted. But no matter how dedicated you are to your diet or how many hours you spend at the gym, your body can still develop unsightly deposits of fat in problem areas. You have no control over the biochemistry of your body, but these deposits can still erode your self-confidence and self-image. Body contouring treatments from North Dallas Dermatology Associates in Dallas, Texas can be a painless and effective way to achieve the look of your dreams.
The Benefits of Body Contouring With CoolSculpting
Achieving a great body requires a dedication to hard work. Unfortunately, your body does not always cooperate with your overall beauty goals. Fat is not the enemy, and with the correct distribution, body fat in the right places can enhance your look. The problem is that the chemical indicators at work in your body have no awareness of external physical aesthetics. Some people naturally retain fat in places that enhance desirable curves. Other people find that their bodies work against them and they develop unsightly bulges.
If you have fat deposits in unsightly areas that displease you, you aren’t alone. Our bodies are very efficient, and once a fat storage area has been established, the body sometimes falls into a routine of using the same space over and over. The good news is that this is not your fault, and with CoolSculpting, you can target the areas on your body where you want fat removed.
Removes Targeted Areas of Fat
Diet and exercise are effective at reducing your overall fat percentage. However, the problem with diet and exercise is that you can’t apply their effects with precision. We’ve already mentioned that fat deposits in the right places can enhance your aesthetic. One of the most frustrating things about diet and exercise is that you can put in the hard work and dedication only to see fat reduction in the areas where you would prefer to have voluptuous curves.
CoolSculpting is one of the best ways to attack specific areas of fat that have developed in areas of concern. You can think of it as something like a magic wand that you pass over your body to smooth out or sculpt the body line that you want. CoolSculpting allows you to guide your weight loss in accordance with an overall body concept. For the first time, you can evaluate your aesthetic and enhance the lines of the body that help you achieve the most glamorous appearance.
Doesn’t Require Surgery
One of the most important components of any beauty regimen is maintaining the routine. A commitment to beauty has to become a habit, like brushing your teeth. But a commitment to health and wellness is hard, and a week or even a few days interruption can be a major detriment to your overall goals. Surgical procedures can help you remove targeted deposits of fat from problem areas. But if you have to take a few days or weeks to recover from the treatment, you can experience a setback in your overall beauty process.
A non-surgical treatment like CoolSculpting allows you to experience benefits without any interruption in your regular activities. You can receive your CoolSculpting treatment and then hit the gym later that day. CoolSculpting allows you to take control of the lines of your body without interrupting your dedicated regimen of health, beauty and wellness. With this treatment, you don’t have to make a choice between workouts and beauty treatments. You get the best of both worlds.
Let’s face it, we all have enough pain in our lives. Other beauty treatments can require painful stretching and tugging. The best news about CoolSculpting is that it’s completely pain-free. It’s likely that the discomfort you experience during your gym sessions will be far more intense than what you feel during CoolSculpting.
Offers Permanent Results
Clinical studies have shown that most patients can experience anything from a twenty to a thirty percent reduction of fat cells in a targeted area after twelve weeks. The removed fat cells do not return. But keep in mind that if you go through a period of post-treatment weight gain, you can see the return of new fat in an area that received prior treatment.
If you do experience post-treatment weight gain, you can always go back in for another CoolSculpting session. CoolSculpting is an effective way to achieve the sculpted look that has become so popular in media and film. In fact, many individuals find CoolSculpting to be so effective that they incorporate it as part of their regular routine.
Can Be Scheduled
If you have a special event on the calendar, like a wedding or graduation, you might have circled the date as the focal point of your beauty routine. We can put you on a CoolSculpting schedule and offer a series of treatments that are properly spaced to ensure you receive the maximum benefit in the shortest amount of time.
Improves Appearance and Self-Confidence
Almost everyone has a problem area on their body that erodes their self-confidence and seems to resist their efforts of diet and exercise. Many people begin to experience feelings of self-doubt as their weight loss efforts are met with failure. The fact is, no amount of diet and exercise can effectively target a specific problem area. Some areas of your body, like fat deposits under the chin, are impossible to remove with exercise and can have a huge impact on your overall appearance.
It is one thing to explain to a person that biochemistry and not a lack of determination is what leads to fat accumulation in specific problem areas. It’s another thing to demonstrate the theory with positive results. Using body contouring to eliminate unsightly fat deposits that have proven resistant to all other efforts can provide tremendous psychological relief to a client.
There is no reason to learn to live with fat deposits or accept that these things are beyond your control. Body contouring allows you to achieve your ideal look and experience the boost in self-confidence that comes with success. If you have resigned yourself to living with a problem area rather than embarking on new ways of removing it, you might find CoolSculpting will have an empowering effect on your psyche.
Inspires Increased Dedication to Your Program
Stubborn fat deposits on the thighs, torso, abdomen, or neck can often discourage clients from fully dedicating themselves to their program. If a person has dealt with a problem area for years or decades, it prevents them from embracing a commitment to health and wellness. Once somebody starts to believe they’ll never get rid of their love handles or neck fat no matter what they do, they often don’t even try.
A single session of CoolSculpting can strip away years of defeatist thinking. When a client experiences success, they understand that they have more control over their own body than they ever thought possible. Often, these clients redouble their efforts at the gym and end up pushing themselves to new levels. Success breeds success, and often the secret to unleashing the inner beauty of a client starts simply by showing them the way.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
Two Harvard scientists discovered the underlying mechanism for CoolSculpting when they noticed that children who ate popsicles began to develop dimples in their cheeks. They inferred that there was a relationship between the cold of the popsicles and fat reduction. Since its initial discovery, CoolSculpting has become an FDA-cleared fat reduction procedure with documented results in hundreds of medical journals.
The easiest way to explain CoolSculpting is that it is a method your specialist can use to freeze your fat away, but the underlying principle is slightly more complicated. We’ll provide a quick overview of how CoolSculpting works, but suffice it to say, the evidence is there and you can find hundreds of positive testimonials from clients who are fully committed to freezing their fat away.
Cryolipolysis is the scientific name given to the process of killing fat cells through the reduction of temperature. Fat cells are not water-based like your skin and surrounding tissue, so it is possible to damage them through prolonged exposure to cold temperatures. One of the interesting properties of water is that it has an extremely high heat capacity. For example, water takes a long time to boil because the water must absorb a huge amount of energy before the temperature will begin to rise.
Because water can absorb a lot of heat energy, it also takes a lot of cooling time before that energy dissipates. Fat cells have a different biochemical composition that is more vulnerable to prolonged exposure to cold temperatures. Water-based cells can, therefore, withstand exposure to cold that will kill other types of cells.
A typical CoolSculpting treatment will involve applying an applicator to the treatment area for around forty-five minutes. This is a sufficient amount of time to provoke cell death in the subcutaneous fat tissue without causing any damage to the surrounding tissue. After the treatment, the cells will continue to die and be eliminated by your body naturally as waste.
When Will Results Be Visible?
CoolSculpting works by directing the body’s natural operations towards the reduction of fat in a targeted area. Because it is a natural, non-surgical process, it can take some time for the results to begin to manifest. Usually, patients see the first indications of fat reduction in as little as two to three weeks, with the most dramatic results visible in around two to three months. Fat loss can continue for up to four to six months after the treatment.
Many clients express enthusiasm over the prospect of waking up in the morning to check their progress, and some even create time-lapse videos that show their fat literally melting away. Clients have also used their excitement in the weeks and months following their treatment to dedicate further efforts to their fitness routines to help magnify their results. It adds a psychological boost in the gym when you know the work you put in will be magnified as your body continues to expel fat.
Who Is CoolSculpting for?
The best candidates for CoolSculpting are fit, active individuals with specific, problematic target areas of fat accumulation. CoolSculpting is not an efficient treatment for massive weight reduction. If you are in need of massive weight reduction, consult with your specialist about other treatments, such as gastric stapling.
CoolSculpting yields the best results for individuals who have already established a strong commitment to a health and wellness plan. If you are fit and active, but have problem areas on your body that are resistant to all your efforts to reduce them, you should come and talk to us about how CoolSculpting can bring you the results you’ve been looking for.
How Is Treatment Performed?
CoolSculpting has become so popular that you have probably seen the effects of the treatment and not even known it. Today, virtually every Hollywood actor and actress incorporates some form of body contouring into their regular routine. Those smooth thighs and rock-solid abs you see in major studio releases are no accident. True, all of those celebrities spend time with personal trainers and dieticians, but they also have regularly scheduled CoolSculpting treatments.
The first step in your CoolSculpting journey will be to meet with us to determine whether you are a good candidate. We will evaluate your health and your personal beauty goals and provide you with guidance as to whether you should proceed with CoolSculpting. Like with any beauty treatment, it’s important to go into CoolSculpting with the proper expectations as to what is possible.
It is important that you take advantage of your consultation as an opportunity to build a relationship of trust. Be sure to bring in any questions or concerns and make sure you know what is expected of you before you begin the next step. We recommend preparing notes so you don’t forget anything. We can also provide guidance in other areas of your health or offer alternatives to CoolSculpting if you need them.
The Day of the Treatment
You can think of the day of the treatment as like a day going into the spa. We will apply the CoolSculpting applicator or applicators depending on the size of your treatment area. The applicators come in a variety of sizes which are used to treat everything from the fat under your chin to your torso and thighs. The applicators have both a vacuum element to bring the targeted fat cells to the surface of your skin and a cooling element to provoke cryolipolysis.
We recommend that you wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing like you might select for an intercontinental flight. You’ll remain seated, surrounded by cushions, and able to read, watch television, or operate a mobile device. Keep in mind that you won’t be able to remove the applicators until the end of the treatment. Have a light meal before the applicators are applied and make sure you go to the bathroom before the treatment begins.
After the treatment has concluded, your specialist will remove the applicators and you’ll be able to return to your regular schedule right away.
Take Control of Your Body With CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting represents an effective, pain-free method of taking control of your body and achieving the aesthetic you’ve always dreamed of. You’ll benefit both from the effectiveness of the procedure and the boost you’ll feel in your self-confidence and self-esteem.
