11 Jan The Best CoolSculpting Candidates
CoolSculpting is meant for those who are at a healthy weight and need to target specific “pockets of fat” that refuse to budge. Maybe you’ve lost weight through diet and exercise, but just can’t seem to get rid of fat in a certain area. Perhaps you’ve always been at a healthy, comfortable weight but want to literally “sculpt” your body into an even better version of yourself.
What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is not a “weight loss alternative,” although most patients lose a few pounds after their sessions. Instead, it’s a means of targeting small areas of fat to sculpt the body to the patient’s liking. Patients should be at a healthy, target weight already. Large amounts of fat cannot be frozen and dissolved with CoolSculpting.
Everybody is born with a certain body type. They’re also born with a certain number of fat cells distributed in a unique way. Some people may be referred to as “apples” or “pears,” but these are just two very broad descriptions for not just bone structure but natural fat distribution as well.
With CoolSculpting, areas of fat that won’t budge with diet and exercise are targeted, frozen in a non-invasive procedure, then dissolve naturally and safely over weeks or months. This permanently alters the body, since these fat cells are permanently dissolved and won’t come back.
CoolSculpting is often appropriate for nearly every age, gender, and body type. However, the number of sessions a person needs depends on their body and goals. After the first session, patients may notice results in as little as three weeks. Full results require up to six months. Some patients return to CoolSculpting years after their first successful series of sessions because fat cells may change over time. This safe, non-surgical alternative allows patients to continue to mold their body.
