12 Dec Kristin Davis Wishes She’d CoolSculpted Sooner
Sex and the City alum Kristin Davis recently revealed to NewBeauty that she’d fallen into the trap of not doing her own research on cosmetic procedures—much to her chagrin. She’s a large supporter of non-surgical procedures and had thought for years that CoolSculpting was a one-size-fits-all solution. She didn’t want to lose her curves, and she wasn’t exactly sure how CoolSculpting worked. Now that she’s tried it, she’s hooked.
She says, “I’m scared of needles, scared of complications, and scared of doing something that looks bad and not being able to go back and fix it.” CoolSculpting permanently removes fat from targeted areas, which does make it a permanent solution. However, it’s designed to contour and sculpt the body, not dramatically change it. CoolSculpting has a variety of hand tools that allow a skilled expert to subtly shape the body to the client’s ideal, not to a standardized, cookie-cutter body.
When Davis found out that no needles were involved and there was virtually no downtime, she began to take a closer look. “During my career, I’ve gained weight, I’ve lost weight, I’ve gone to the gym six days a week, I’ve gone to the gym, not at all,” she says. “Right now I’m in a ‘not at all’ phase because I have two kids, but throughout it all, there’s a job you have to show up to, and a lot of times, you have to wear jeans.” Wearing jeans can really show off the lower body, and that’s always been Davis’ worry-zone. “I remember being a little worried because if you’re curvy on camera, sometimes it can look too curvy,” she says. However, she “had the misconception that in order to be a good candidate (for CoolSculpting), you needed to have a lot of fat you were trying to reduce.”
Davis says she loved her curves and didn’t want to lose them. “I’m not trying to change that,” she says. However, when she found out that she was in charge of what areas were targeted, it changed her perception of CoolSculpting. With nine applicators and a personalized plan, she zoned in on just the areas that were bothering her. “For me, that was my midsection.” It’s a common complaint, especially for women post-partum. In many cases, no amount of diet or exercise can target this area.
