Muffin top: two words that can make any woman shudder. We’re not talking about the fresh-out-of the oven blueberry strudel kind, either. Muffin top is that little roll of fat you get when you button your favorite jeans. No amount of diet or exercise makes it go away, so you resort to hiding it, ignoring it, or stuffing it in shapewear. Now, there’s a new non-surgical treatment available for stubborn fat like muffin top, belly bulge, or love handles. Muffin top, meet your nemesis: Cool Sculpting.
What is coolsculpting? Cool Sculpting is a new FDA cleared treatment for targeting and eliminating fat cells without doing damage to your skin. Cool Sculpting uses cooling technology to eliminate fat cells without surgery. The procedure can be done right in your doctor’s office and one treatment may be enough to successfully treat your stubborn fat. You will begin to see results as soon as three weeks after treatment and will see the most dramatic effects about two months after your Cool Sculpting treatment. You may continue to see improvement for between four and six months as your body flushes fat cells away.
The Cool Sculpting procedure is non-invasive and most patients can return to their normal activities immediately after treatment. Your doctor will help determine the right treatment plan for you, but most treatment cycles take between one and three hours. Simply nap, read, or relax during your treatment while the cooling panels begin to eliminate fat cells and make that stubborn fat disappear.
Only your doctor can determine if Cool Sculpting is the best treatment option for you.
