We understand just how difficult it is to get rid of stubborn body fat, and that is why we are proud to offer our clients the advanced fat reduction treatment known as CoolSculpting®. This amazing technology can be used to eradicate fat cells and minimize the appearance of cellulite. Here is a closer look at just a few of the reasons why so many patients are now flocking to CoolSculpting®.
The Truth About Body Fat
The only way to get rid of stubborn body fat is to burn more calories than you consume, but that process can be quite difficult. Studies have shown us that you can’t spot treat fat with specific exercises or food products. Your body wants to preserve at least some body fat as an emergency source of energy, and it will do everything in its power to keep extra soft tissue in the legs and midsection. You could stick to a healthy diet for months without seeing any changes to your abdomen, thighs, buttocks, or flanks.
CoolSculpting® and Fat Reduction
With the CoolSculpting® machine, our team can target stubborn pockets of fat while leaving the rest of the soft tissue unharmed. A handheld suction device is placed directly over the fat that you would like to get rid of. It then brings that fat down to a very cold temperature for a few minutes. In the following weeks, your body will metabolize and expel the damaged fat cells.
The Ideal CoolSculpting® Candidate
CoolSculpting® is minimally-invasive, but some patients experience mild side effects. Following each appointment, you may notice discoloration and tenderness. In between your appointments, you should stick to a healthy diet and exercise at least a few days a week. The ideal candidate is a relatively healthy adult who is ready to make sweeping lifestyle changes.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
You will most likely need to schedule at least five or six treatment sessions if you want to enjoy the best results. Some patients also combine CoolSculpting® with other cosmetic procedures such as laser skin rejuvenation and PRP therapy. To learn more, contact or visit us at Amachi Med Spa.
