Sometimes diets simply don’t work. No matter how much you watch what you eat and how often you exercise, some fat — often called “stubborn fat” — simply won’t budge. Part of the reason has to do with the absence of nearby muscles that will use the fat stored in adipose tissue for molecular energy. Some examples are belly fat and fat around the hips, often called “muffin tops” or “love handles.”
You might think there aren’t many choices for people who don’t want to live with fat in these areas. There’s endless exercise and eternal dieting, coming to terms with living forever with it, or surgery. Surgery is an intimidating prospect and, rather than submit to a procedure with an incision and down-time, many people just decide to grin and bear it. It doesn’t have to be that way, though.
Coolsculpting is a non-intrusive method of killing fat cells by freezing them until they’re no longer viable. Skin and muscle tissue remains healthy and intact. Because the procedure is non-intrusive, that means no cuts, no needles, and no scars. It also means you don’t have to change your lifestyle or start swallowing diet pills.
Coolsculpting treatments generally last about an hour and after the targeted fat cells are frozen and killed, it takes some time for your body to naturally eliminate them. If you don’t get the results you want even after your body has removed the fat cell waste, you can always come back!
