We all want to achieve our ideal appearance goals, but realizing your dream body can be something of a challenge when regular diet and exercise fail to produce the desired results. For many of us, the simple truth is that there comes a point when diet and exercise aren’t enough. What are you supposed to do? At Beautique Medical in Knoxville, TN we know the key to your dream body can start with CoolSculpting: a revolutionary body contouring treatment to freeze fat away.
Maybe you’ve heard of this treatment, or maybe you haven’t. In either case, we know that many prospective patients are curious about this treatment and what it can do for them.
3 Things to Know About CoolSculpting
1. Freeze Fat Away
This treatment really freezes fat away, and we mean this literally. Unlike many other body contouring treatments, which use heat and invasive measures to dissolve or melt fat off the body, this treatment takes a polar opposite approach. This is a non-surgical, non-invasive body contouring treatment that utilizes the power of profound cold thermal energy to target stubborn pockets of fat and freeze them right off the body for natural-looking results.
How It Works
The key to this treatment is an advanced technology technique called cryolipolysis, which targets and rapidly cools fat cells to the point of natural cell death. You can compare the way this technology works to treatments commonly used for wart removal, which freeze the wart until it goes away.
The same principle is applied to fat cells, which can swell due to weight gain and be difficult to shrink even through the most rigorous diet and exercise.
What Happens to the Unwanted Fat?
If cryolipolysis freezes fat cells and causes natural cell death, then what happens to the fat? Where does it go? The easiest way to explain it is to start with the fact that our bodies are programmed to metabolize anything deemed non-essential and to remove non-essential cells through regular elimination methods.
In much the same way as empty calories are processed, the frozen fat cells are broken down and removed through elimination over time.
Why Do We Have Unwanted Fat?
Have you ever wondered why you might need a fat freezing treatment to eliminate unwanted fat, or why it seems like regular weight management methods aren’t as effective for you as other people? All people are born with a predetermined number of fat cells, which store fat for energy during childhood and adolescence, and which are less prone to shrinking during adulthood.
The simple truth is that many of us have genetic factors that make it more difficult to eliminate unwanted fat independently, meaning body contouring treatments are sometimes the only way to slim down.
2. It Is Permanent
One of the more appealing factors of this treatment is the fact that the results are permanent. That’s right: this treatment can last a lifetime. Why? It has to do with the cell death that cryolipolysis causes. Once a fat cell is dead and eliminated, a new fat cell is not made to replace it, and that equals permanent results.
When Can You See Results?
Speaking of results, when will you start seeing the effects of the treatment? It’s important to know that the results for this treatment appear gradually. After three to four weeks, patients begin seeing a reduction in the layers of unwanted fat on the body, with the most dramatic results appearing around three months. Patients will continue to see the elimination of unwanted fat for the next few months.
Can You Protect Your Results?
Certainly! In fact, because it is possible for the remaining fat cells to begin storing additional fat, we encourage patients to do all they can to protect their results. The best way to do this is by basic weight management, particularly through a balanced diet and regular exercise.
For women, we also encourage patients to wait for this treatment until after they are no longer planning to be pregnant, as the hormones and bodily changes associated with pregnancy can undo the results of treatment.
3. It Is for Every Body
Broadly speaking, this treatment is ideal for any patient who has a BMI of 30 or greater. This is because the cryolipolysis can eliminate up to 25% of body fat from a single treatment. On the whole, however, this is a treatment that is ideal for every body and every body issue. In fact, this is one of the more versatile body contouring treatments currently available.
Areas of Treatment
There are several areas of the body that are appropriate for this treatment, including:
- Double chin
Who Are Ideal Candidates?
Candidates who are ideal for this treatment include those who are willing to commit to healthy lifestyle habits and who want to eliminate unwanted fat from the body to achieve an ideal shape. You may also be a good candidate if you have multiple areas of concern and if you are keen to combine this treatment with diet, exercise, and other body contouring treatments like CoolTone.
