30 Jun CoolSculpt Now to Ward Off Winter Weight Gain
Winter might seem a long way away, but it always sneaks up on you—just like winter weight gain. RefinedMD offers CoolSculpting, the OG non-invasive body contouring and sculpting technology for those already at or near their goal weight. If you’ve worked hard to achieve #hotgirlsummer, then don’t let that work go to waste. It’s impossible to spot reduce via diet and exercise, but that’s exactly what CoolSculpting lets you do. Before we dive into why you should focus on winter weight maintenance now, let’s take a look at how this tech works.
CoolSculpting targets small amounts of unwanted fat, separating it in a vacuum-like device. The treatment is comfortable and pain-free, though it can feel a little unusual for first-timers. In just 30 minutes, the area is externally exposed to exact freezing temperatures while protecting the skin itself (i.e. no frostbite here). When fat cells are exposed to temps in this way, they are “killed.” This means they will never come back, but bear in mind that should weight gain occur in the future, nearby fat cells can expand into the CoolSculpted area.
Results are not immediate. The body will require time to metabolize and eliminate these frozen fat cells. Most people see initial results about a month after their first cycle with full results 3 – 6 months after the final cycle. In most cases, clients undergo 4 – 6 initial CoolSculpting cycles per site. Sessions are scheduled about one month apart, which is why right now is the ideal time to start CoolSculpting for winter.
Winter Weight Woes
It is very common to gain weight in the winter months, which is why CoolSculpting can help you stay on top of this unwanted trend. There is a myriad of reasons for this, from the natural “bulking” that occurs in cooler months to sweaters and long sleeves naturally hiding what you might consider imperfections. Plus, with all the holiday parties and treats, it can be tough not to gain a little extra padding during the winter season. CoolSculpting can help you keep this at bay by ensuring there are no excess fat cells in your trouble areas.
You can get CoolSculpting anywhere on the body, from large areas like the back to tiny areas such as the submental fat area (below the chin). Some of the most popular places include the abs, thighs, and upper arms. CoolSculpting requires no needles and no downtime. It’s a lunchtime treatment that lets you get right back to your day after your appointment. You can also book different sites back-to-back, such as abs first followed by the chin for an easy one-hour appointment.
Who is CoolSculpting For?
CoolSculpting is not a “weight loss procedure,” even though you might drop a pound or two at the end of your series. It is specifically for body contouring and sculpting, making it ideal for those who are close to their goals. If you want a more aggressive procedure that will actually eliminate larger amounts of fat, liposuction may be a better option. However, many people don’t want to undergo liposuction at the start of summer because of the recovery period. Severe bruising can occur with liposuction, which is temporary of course but doesn’t go well with a swimsuit.
There are very few contraindications with CoolSculpting since it is totally non-invasive, but it is important to have realistic expectations. It should complement a healthy diet and lifestyle, not replace it. The best candidates for CoolSculpting are those who are committed to self-care but struggle a little bit with specific areas—or for those who want to make sure they maintain their swimsuit body through the winter.
CoolSculpting can also be combined with other treatments such as Emsculpt for a more toned look. It’s an easy add-on to any procedure or treatment, especially minimally- and non-invasive treatments like fillers, Botox, and laser skin rejuvenation.
