Non-Invasive CoolSculpting Fat Reduction Works

Non-Invasive CoolSculpting Fat Reduction Works

You’ve heard about CoolSculpting, and RefinedMD has the latest tools and techniques for this groundbreaking procedure. It’s a non-invasive option for contouring that works by freezing the fat in the body, which will then dissipate naturally and safely over time. The term “fat loss” can often be confusing. Fat cells grow and shrink as we gain and lose weight, and every person has different types of fat deposits. The only way to actually “lose fat” is by removing those fat cells, which is possible by surgery—and now with CoolSculpt.

CoolSculpting is different than a weight loss surgery like liposuction in many ways. For starters, you’re awake and able to read, watch television, browse the internet or do any other seated task during the process. How many sessions you’ll require depends on many things and can be discussed during your complimentary consultation.

Does it Hurt?

Worrying about the procedure hurting is common. CoolSculpting can feel a bit strange, and a handful of clients describe it as slightly uncomfortable, but for the most part it’s a very easy, relatively fast, and comfortable procedure. There’s no recovery time, although you might feel a bit numb in the treatment area for a few days afterwards. Soreness is also common, though no more than had you bumped your body by mistake.

CoolSculpting takes longer to see results than with liposuction. After all, liposuction instantly removes the fat from the body. However, liposuction can cause severe and painful bruising and swelling. You often have to go to a specialty massage to have the fat “redistributed” after every liposuction session. Such drastic fat loss can also lead to loose skin.

With CoolSculpting, since the fat is slowly freezing and disappearing after the process, it will take about two weeks before you start to see results. Full results occur in six months. That’s a pretty small wait time for a safe procedure that often costs thousands less than liposuction.

CoolSculpting Helps with Post-Baby “Snapback”

The pressure on women to get back to their pre-baby body as quickly as possible has never been higher. Celebrities like Kylie Jenner and Gisele Bundchen have shown off their post-baby body weeks after giving birth and have helped to fuel a culture that demands a so-called “snapback” faster than ever before. While it’s more important to have realistic health goals and to put safety first, non-invasive strategies like CoolSculpting can help maximize post-partum fitness regimens. CoolSculpting can help women who gained a healthy amount of weight during pregnancy re-shape and contour their body after birth.

Although CoolSculpting isn’t a weight loss tool, it can be an effective way to target small areas of fat and help moms regain an aesthetically pleasing body to increase self-esteem (in a time when they need it most). Supermodel Molly Sims has also spoken out about the pressure on women to look runway-ready days after giving birth. She says that there’s a newfound obsession with instantly looking like you never gave birth, and pressure comes from within as well as a flooding of external messaging.

Your Secret Weapon

Sims adopted a safe and healthy approach to losing baby weight, using both exercise and CoolSculpting. She was so impressed with the fat-freezing results that she signed on to be a spokesperson for the procedure. According to Sims, it helped restore body confidence in a time when paparazzi would wait at her doctor’s offices to snap a photo of her post-baby body. She combined CoolSculpting with a high-protein, low-carb diet as well as Bikram Yoga, Body by Simone, Pilates, and Tracy Anderson.

“You’ve got to exercise and eat healthy” to lose weight, she says. Sims uses a pair of jeans that fit when she was at a weight that makes her feel good in order to avoid the scale, which can lead to obsessing over workouts and calories. Once she can tell she’s within five pounds of her goal weight, she gets CoolSculpting. “It literally just took the fat away,” she said. “I know that sounds crazy, but no amount of sit ups was going to do it.”

Are You a Good Candidate?

Patients are much more likely to be solid candidates for CoolSculpting than any other fat loss procedures. With no needles and no need for anesthesia, it’s safe and comfortable. In surgeries, anesthesia or “going under” is often the most dangerous part of the procedure. With CoolSculpting, you don’t have to worry about the dangers or added fees of an anesthesiologist.

CoolSculpting is ideal for all the common problem areas like tummies, arms, legs, back and chest. Consult with RefinedMD today by calling the office or filling out the online form to see if you’re a suitable candidate for this revolutionary procedure.
