The best way to understand your “trouble spots” is to think about how your body stores energy. When you eat, a portion of the food that isn’t immediately needed as fuel is converted into fat.
Your body has fat cells throughout, most of which lie in a layer just beneath the surface of your skin. Each cell can expand and contract to store more or less fat as needed. When you consume fewer calories than you need, your system taps into those fat reserves, causing them to shrink.
The problem is that you cannot control which fat cells are tapped first. Everyone stores fat differently, so it isn’t uncommon for men and women to have areas of their body where fat remains in place, even if they are otherwise fit and trim.
CoolSculpting is a body-contouring treatment that safely and effectively removes unwanted fat. It is a noninvasive option that delivers outstanding results, with none of the risks associated with liposuction or other invasive procedures.
This treatment is FDA-cleared for use on your back, buttocks, thighs, upper arms, flanks, abdomen, and beneath your chin or jawline. It’s possible to treat more than one area during the same visit.
The system uses cold temperatures to damage unwanted fat. A treatment applicator is gently secured over your problem areas. The system then reduces the temperature to the point where the walls of your fat cells can no longer maintain their structural integrity.
A portion of the treated fat cells will rupture, releasing stored fat. That fat and the damaged cell matter are processed through your lymphatic system and eliminated from your body.
While CoolSculpting permanently eliminates fat cells, it is not an effective weight-loss treatment. To begin, CoolSculpting is designed to treat relatively small areas of your body, and the number of destroyed fat cells is insufficient to create noticeable weight reduction.
Also, the fat cells that remain will still be able to expand if you consume more calories than you burn. People who are overweight do not have more fat cells than healthy people; their fat cells have expanded to store more fat.
CoolSculpting is best suited for men and women who have reached and can maintain a healthy weight. If you gain significant weight in the years after your treatment, your results could change.
