When you eat well, exercise regularly, and maintain a healthy lifestyle, areas of stubborn fat can be especially frustrating. The truth is this -- there are some parts of the body that resist change no matter how many sit ups you do or kale salads you eat. In those cases, CoolSculpting might be the answer you’ve been looking for.
Yes, fat can literally be frozen to death.
CoolSculpting, an FDA-approved form of fat reduction called cryolipolysis, uses freezing temperatures to break down fat cells, so the body can eliminate them. The process is quick, noninvasive, and considered safe by medical professionals, which makes it a good choice for many people. During the procedure, the practitioner vacuums the skin above the area of fatty tissue into an applicator that cools the fat cells. The cold temperatures numb the area, and some people report feeling a cooling sensation.
Great! But does it work?
You'll start to see results after a few weeks with the final effects revealed in three months. However, destroying existing fat cells will not prevent new fat cells from appearing. A healthy lifestyle is vital to preserve the results of CoolSculpting. A person who does not exercise or who eats an unhealthy diet may soon see the fat return.
The best way to determine if you are a candidate for CoolSculpting -- or if your needs are better met with a different procedure is to request a consultation with the team at Windsor Dermatology. Call us today!
